The venue: Iron Fairies is like no bar you’ve ever been to in Bangkok. It actually looks more like a Dickensian factory than a high-end pub, thanks to the crumbling blackened brick walls and scattering of ancient, heavy-looking industrial machinery. This is cluttered chic at its finest and is perfectly finished off by the central spiral staircase and collection of fairies that occupy most of the flat surfaces.
Why it’s hot: Did you not read the description above? But on top of the quirky decor this place offers an extremely cool vibe thanks to the intimate space, ultra-hip soundtrack, impressive martinis and punch and the occasional celebrity crowd.
The guys: Laid-back, but clearly well-off and well-dressed, Thonglor locals looking to blow off some steam after a hard week at the office.
The girls: Beautiful and well-pampered goddesses in the latest local designer outfits who just got back from studying overseas.
Come here to pick up: A chic and edgy romantic whose looking for something that’s both stylish but personal.
