Backstage Bar @ PlayHaus Hotel
To get to this bar, you need to walk into the grand foyer at the Playhaus hotel. Then, approach the red curtain, stepping through will transport you into a dark and cozy speakeasy-themed dressing room filled with old school dressing mirrors and candles. The music and easygoing vibe were awesome. The cocktails were great quality and were accompanied by delicious popcorn for snacking. This is one of our favorite bars in Bangkok because it has a very down to earth attitude and old school aesthetic hidden behind the thick red curtain. Their facebook with more info can be found here. We had a killer American style whiskey Sour.

This bar is a gem. It’s a dark elusive bar in the Thonglor district. As you enter, you need to give yourself time for your eyes to adjust to the moody lighting. It’s filled with vintage decorations and several spiral staircases. It sort of feels like walking into an old school pirate ship. The bar has excellent drinks and killer burgers. The name is based off a children’s book with a world of iron miners who make iron fairies that come to life when they see the sun.
