The buzz: Offering another reason to hit Ekkamai for chats and drinks with your pack after work, 6ixcret offers everything you’d need for an easy night out—food, entertainment, and booze, of course—all set in the obligatory converted Sukhumvit home.
The décor: Like many other places in Sukhumvit, a house has been renovated into a brand new chilling spot. While sitting there (especially if you opt for the outside), you’ll get a distinct déjà vu feeling—think Spring and Summer without the beanbags—though you could also name many other joints in Thonglor/ Ekkamai. This place manages to stand out from the others though thanks to the sheer size of the outdoor space and the welcoming shade of the garden’s collection of mature trees. On the inside, it has the feel of a bar you might set up at home – albeit a very smart one with a pool table
The music: Switching between Thai favorites, bossa nova, and live music from some local bands.
The crowd: 20-30 year olds ranging from new graduates to young office workers.
The price: Thai dishes start from B80 to B250, B150-B250 for imported draught beers like Hoegarden and Stella. B860-B1,400 for whiskeys. Corkage fee B300.
Why you’ll come back: You prefer to stick to places where you can properly chat with friends without battling the music. That and you like the idea of being surrounded by greenery in the heart of busy Sukhumvit. Narisa Pokuntchanan
