    Nest Bar

The buzz: Bringing a Hollywood style pre-party (or after party) outdoor hangout to Bangkok loungers—except only better because it’s a rooftop venue. Perfect to enjoy the beautiful and breezy nights in downtown Sukhumvit.

The décor: Past the fire exit door and up a flight of stairs you’ll find yourself in a cozy and comfy hangout. As the name suggests, Nest is ideal for you and your fly-high buddies to gives those wings a rest before you flap them all night on the dance floor. A long, sleek, black bar and kitchen lines the wall on the far end—fully equipped with bartenders and chefs dressed in brown to match the warm décor. The wind occasionally carries whiffs of Thai cooking done in front of spectators by the bar. An exclusive section lifted a few feet off the ground is lined with “nest-like” seating (round and enclosed, like a bigger version of a modern day business-class seat). If you really want to feel at home, remove those shoes, grab one of their fish bowl martinis and stretch your legs on the patch of green. The furniture is comfortable: Thai-styled beds with wooden poles and thin sheer curtains or swing-seats for two—ideal for a romantic cuddle and conversation.

The music: DJs playing 80s and old school music on Thursdays, soul, funk and R&B on Fridays, bossanova jazz with live musicians on Saturdays and a jazz trio on Sundays.

The crowd: Professionals who enjoy lounging after work. Evenly divided between Thais and farangs.

The price: Cocktails B250-420, Champagne cocktails B350-750, whisky B220-400, beer B150-300.

Why you’ll come back: You’re looking to hit Q Bar or Bed Supperclub a few doors down, but as usual, you kind of want to be fashionably late. So you grab your buddies for a pre-party chill out session at Nest to enjoy some downtime, a never-ending signature drinks list and intimate conversations.

This will decide, once and for all, who does the city's best G&T.

The people of Yaowarat tell us the food stalls they love. 

Assoc. Prof. Varaporn Suravadee died yesterday at the age of 81 after an accident in her home. The retired professor was at the center of one of 2016’s most inspirational stories. After learning that an eight-story building would be constructed next to Bangkokian Museum, a compound of century-old wooden houses she gifted to the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) in 2004, she donated B30 million and called on the public to come up with another B10 million to purchase the adjacent plot of land. Despite a tight two-month deadline, the campaign achieved its goal in only three weeks. We spoke to Varaporn earlier this month, prior to her hospitalization on Jan 15, when she opened up about her hopes for the future of the museum.
