BANGKOK BAR

Tofu

Located on the third floor of oldie Kluen Saek and belonging to the same management team of ‘70s Bar is little sis Tofu. With red walls, a disco ball, cubic seats, low tables and I-can’t-be-bothered-to-decorate attitude, it has a different vibe from other bars around here. Music-wise, it is not the same as ‘70s Bar either and makes us feel as if the DJ is actually alive and of some use. (Ever feel like the DJ just has his iPod on shuffle which is why your requests go ignored?) There’s plenty of space and smaller crowds, so you can move your hips with all-time hits and the latest Thai and inter songs. We like the rooftop, as a unique escape from the regular gayish punters on ground zero. If you’re bored with groovy people and need more privacy, less noise pollution, a chill chill atmosphere that is breezy with a bird’s eye view—this is it. Everything is in white, with décor, garden table sets and a small storage space that has been converted into a bar section. There’s one multicolored sofa set. Music isn’t the main attraction here cause they just play whatever they want on a home stereo. Most customers are there for chitchatting and some friendly drinks rather than a wild party. Tofu doesn’t have its own kitchen, but that doesn’t stop them from having a menu, with most food coming from its neighbors. Try somtam mapraow oon meekrob (papaya salad with young coconut and crispy rice noodles, B150) a balance of sweet coconut with spicy papaya salad and yam pakboong (B80). Bottles of Black are B1,400, Red is B950 and Hundred Pipers is B750. Beer and ready-to-drinks are between B100-B150. All mixers are B30.
