The buzz: Situated at the end of Thonglor, off Sukhumvit, Ice bar is quickly making an impression, and not just for its large neon-blue sign. Destined to join the ranks of such well-known Thonglor bars as Escudo, Cliq, and Song Saleung, Ice Bar’s cool atmosphere will make you feel firmly in the space age while still being comfortable enough to chill in it.
The décor: As the name implies, the main concept behind the interior is ice. The colors blue, white and purple engulf the whole room as the ever-changing light themes switch from one to another. The whole bar is designed to give a translucent feel. Near the entrance, a solid bar of ice (yes, real ice) is on display every day, sustaining the ice concept; and at every couch table, there’s a ready-made cooler to chill your drinks.
The music: Live performances by the house bands, covering popular Thai pop and alternative tunes, interspersed at 30 minute intervals by the house DJ playing hip hop tracks.
The crowd: Nearly 100% Thai with the occasional foreigner out with Thai friends.
The bill: Red B1,000, Black B1,350, Swing B2,200, mixers B45. Cocktails start at B150, B400 for a jug of kamikaze.
Why you will come back: With its ultra cool lighting and modern atmosphere, plus competitive prices, Ice Bar offers a unique experience for clubbers to enjoy their booze and live music.
