BANGKOK BAR

Nine Lounge and Bar

Hidden deep in a soi next to sister Lim’s Restaurant, this is where upscale locals go to mingle and warm up before hitting Patong.

The space: The two-story house-turned-bar is part art gallery, part courtyard and part jungle thanks to all the plants. The prominence of raw concrete gives the place a classy but understated contemporary look helped by the artwork dotted around the cave like interior.

The music: Chill out tunes­—who’s listening?

The crowd: A clique of local gays working in 5-star resorts, and arty types.

Champagne moment: The super chic mood and the unique crowd.

Sangsom moment: Not in with the in crowd?—be bored and hot as hell (the air con is crap).
