The buzz: The beautiful garden at Thai restaurant Kram in the back streets of Sukhumvit Soi 39 has welcomed a bunch of exciting faces. Alongside Singaporean coffee roasters Sarnies and East-meets-West chef's table Maison de Bangkok comes this tropical bar from the forces behind Thonglor’s Blaq Lyte and Ari’s Future Factory, along with their Ryde spin instructor friend. 

The decor: With its intricate bamboo work, this shack is a little classier than what you typically find on Koh Phangan. A handful of stools let you prop up the bar, but you really want to claim a patch of grass out on the lawn which is strewn with old-style mats, triangle cushions and low coffee tables. The low-key vibe (complete with three adventurous house cats) makes this a great spot for drinking from day into night, when the garden comes aglow with string lighting. 

The drinks: Tropical and refreshing, as you'd expect. Sweet Juan (B340) mixes chili-infused tequila with fresh pineapple juice, lime and cilantro, garnished with a slightly burnt big chili, for a flavor that's fresh with just a hint of fire. Their martini (B360) goes down more easily than most thanks to an orange-infused vermouth (they switch up the fruit depending on what's available). For something even lighter, get the Some Young Guy (gin, lime, salt and young coconut, B340), which has no added sugar, just the natural sweetness of young coconut water and the enticing aroma of a pandan leaf garnish. 

The music: A beach-ready mix of down-tempo Balearic house, synth-pop and yacht rock. 

The crowd: Thonglor's cool, artsy kids chilling out between hangovers. Chances are they'll make their way to Blaq Lyte later in the night. 

Why you should care: With its chill garden vibe and easygoing cocktails, this tropical bar is perfect for day-time drinking (they open at 3pm on weekends). And if you get hungry, just pop inside for Kram's tasty and authentic Thai dishes. Choltanutkun Tun-atiruj
