The buzz: Perched on the top floor of the new Four Points Hotel, amBar is aiming to be the locus of a swank and chic scene, attracting beautiful people from the nearby bars in Soi 11.

The décor: At first glance, you may be deceived into thinking this is just another tiny hotel’s outdoor rooftop bar. But a walk inside reveals contemporary designs with Middle Eastern details to create an energetic ambience. Couples and large groups may enjoy chilling out on daybeds on the terrace or poolside—too bad you’re not allowed to jump into it.

The music: DJ Esquire and DJ Saint Vincent play house and techno house tunes every Fri and Sat, 9pm-1am. On weeknights, expect house tunes and international hits.

The price: Cocktails B250-350, beer B100-250, whiskey B240-350 (glass). Happy hour is 5:30-7:30pm during which time you can do buy one get one free for selected drinks.

The crowd: Considering the location, we’ll likely be seeing a big crowd of affluent Asian tourists.

Why you’ll come back: If you’re in Nana and need a space to chill out, this is one of the very few places that offers you non-sleezy poolside seats with affordable prices. Its happy hour is ongoing, so no harm in a first try. Top Koaysomboon
