The Bear Bar offers a professional, high-quality audio recording service for your band's CD, demo, or special event.

Our recording studio is mobile, so the session can be done at The Bear Bar, or we can come to you! Please contact us for more information.

Here are some of the projects we've worked on.

Bad Boy! Live at Boy Blues Bar

The Bad Boy of Chiang Mai, Thirasak Konchanthet, releases his first CD, recorded live at Boy Blues Bar in December 2015.

The Next Generation

Throughout 2012, we recorded many of the great bands and solo artists who played at The Bear Bar, the next generation of musicians in Chiang Mai, and compiled some of the best tracks into this live CD.

Live @ The Brasserie

The Brasserie has been a Chiang Mai institution for over 25 years, producing some of Thailand's best blues and rock talent.

It closed its doors in May 2012 and this session was recorded at one of its last nights.

David LaMotte
Live @ The Bear Bar

A singer/songwriter walked into a bar, had a few beers and decided to put on a show.

Nok "La Fiesta"
Live @ The Bear Bar

Nok "La Fiesta" is a well-known performer around S.E.Asia and her energetic blend of fiery Spanish guitar, blues and down-and-dirty rock and roll is a sight to behold.

This live CD was recorded over two nights in March 2012.
