Official description

In the early eighties, Chiang Mai lived at a less hectic pace. The tourist boom was just beginning and the entertainment on offer mostly catered to local tastes and was located on the west side of the Ping River. There was virtually no live Western music venues then.

Sharing a similar frustration about the lack of a cool place to “hang out”, John Vloet, the late K. Ana Manmontri (Pee Pong), Peter Buckland (and later K. Nirun and Judith Vloet), all bi-cultural friends and musicians, rebuilt an old wooden house on the east bank of the river and in February of 1984 The Riverside Restaurant was born.
