The buzz: Bangkok nightlife has been dominated by the uber-hip, edgy trends of Thong Lor and Ekamai of late, while places like Lang Suan were fizzling out with narry a bar to name, let alone hang out at, apart from maybe Wine Bridge. 4th Floor Café revitalizes the area somewhat by renovating an old office on the fourth floor of Piya Place and turning it into a new spot to drink, grab a bite and listen to live music.
The décor: The indoor space offers good views of the live music by placing the stage in the middle of the room and surrounding it with sofas and a bar. The overall vibe is pretty vintage, combining velvet wallpaper, wooden tables, leather sofas, while the use of LED lights throughout the indoor and outdoor spaces give the place a modern touch.
The music: Pop and jazz during the early hours, but live bands play everyday from 10pm to midnight, followed by chilled out trance and house music by the house DJ.
The crowd: Office workers from Chitlom and Ploen Chit.
The price: Cocktails B180-250 such as Passion Mojito and Sexy Devil (spicy mix of chili and Malibu). Draught Beer B200-250 (by pint), including the classic Danish Carlsberg. Wine B800-4,000 bottles. They also have a wine buffet (B699 for 2 hours) and a beer buffet (B799 for 4 hours).
Why you’ll come back? If it’s right near your office, there’s Thai fusion dinner options on the menu, booze and good music, not to mention convenient parking. Vasachol Quadri
