BANGKOK BAR

Octagon

This rooftop bar sits modestly on the fourth floor but offers some nice 360-degree urban views of Chit Lom.

This brand new rooftop bar sits modestly on the fourth floor of The Mercury Ville community mall. Co-founded by Prabt Aurpatcharphon, of Glur Bangkok Hostel and Coffee Bar, the bar is decked out in the requisite fake grass and rattan benches, conjuring a laidback garden vibe—think Thonglor’s Wanderlust.
 
Explaining the name, an octagon-shaped open bar sits at the venue’s center. The food is international fusion, including beer-friendly choices like deepfried seafood (B490), spaghetti garlic and dried chili (B180) and barbecue sausage (B180).
 
Asahi is available on tap and they claim to serve it extra cold at -2 degree Celsius (B200). Head a little early on Mon-Thu for their buy-one-get-one-free deal on cocktails from 5-9pm, which include the signature Take Me Out (B250) and Old Fashioned (B250). The 360-degree urban views of Chit Lom aren’t bad, either.
