History

The Rock Pub opened their doors on March 1, 1987, and hundreds of local and international bands have played there since then. They celebrated their 27th anniversary on March 1, 2014.

For almost three decades, lots of rock bands has stepped on the Rock Pub's stage and performed. Over dozens of those became famous in Thailand's music industry. One of the reasons they all had agreed for their success is the experiences they gained from playing there night in and night out.

Artists from all over the world have also played at the Rock Pub: Sodom, Dragonforce, Doro, Exodus, Mr.Gary Bowden, Napalm Death and King Lychee (Hong Kong) are just some of the bands that put on performances at the Rock Pub.

The Rock Pub has seen and gone through different paths. The economy shock in 1997 almost put it out of business, but it stayed strong as the musicians and customers supported and stood by during tough times.

On every March 1 since 1987, rockers from all over Thailand have gathered up and celebrated each year that passed on.
