Sundowners in Sathorn. 

Sathorn's leafy Yen Akat neighborhood is about to become even livelier.

With California on the brain, Sanya Souvanna Phouma (of Sing Sing, Quince and Maggie Choo's notoriety) is joining with up-and-coming designer Shelley Kwok to open Cactus, a new rooftop bar meant to evoke the mid-century West Coast architecture of designer John Lautner.

While we're waiting to see exactly what that means (an indoor lounge, a terrace that sits above the treetops, "laid out using the vernacular of California buildings"), we do at least have a fair idea of the view (see below). 

More confirmed details: Cactus will serve a list of on-theme cocktails created by (who else?) Joseph Boroski (priced at B250-500) as well as food in collaboration with brand-new Mediterranean specialist Cagette Canteen and Deli, which sits below.

All going to plan, Cactus will open mid-March.
