This is one city where if you’ve got it, it is both socially acceptable and encouraged to flaunt it. Here’s where the glitterati go to live the high life.
As one of Southeast Asia’s cultural and economic epicentres, Bangkok attracts more than its share of high-rollers and celebrities. In order to accommodati all those socialites dressed head-to-toe in designer labels, international models, and visiting Hollywood VIPs, the city offers plenty of places to live large. Follow the In Crowd to these luxe locales, which offer everything from Michelin-worthy dining to barrel-aged cocktails.
For males “only”, at the Siwilai Social Club at Central Embassy you can enjoy live sports events, choosing among an extensive selection of whiskeys and quality spirits, or drinking inspired classics with a masculine slant, and a special twist.
A great indoor area with a large “see through” chef’s kitchen which is a gastronomical sight, a nice cool bar and a cosy outdoor garden. 7 top-rated international restaurants: gourmet thai cuisine, mediterranean, Italian Ristorante, fine Indian dining, Japanese art cuisine, Thai seafood grill and a patisserie.
Chotipong Leenutapong and Debby Tang, the high-profile husband-and-wife team behind Il Fumo, brought much of their VIP social circle with them when they opened this chic bistro. Though many initially came to see and be seen with the ‘In’ Crowd, they stayed for Chef Luca Appino’s remarkable menu, which deftly glides between Spain, Sardinia, and other parts of the Mediterranean.
While many of Bangkok’s more notorious clubs are seedy affairs, this fantasy world draped in intricate chinoiserie details keeps it classy. This dream-like, debauched vision tinged with 1920s-style Shanghai glamour is a joint effort by Ashley Sutton – the Australian designer known for creating such visually striking watering holes as the steampunk Iron Fairies – and Sanya Souvanna Phouma – the half-Lao prince behind a number of high-society nightlife and dining concepts.
The first eatery officially connected with what many fashionistas consider to be the last word in matters of style, Vogue Lounge is every bit as plush as one might expect. Warm marble, leather upholstery, and glossy black-and-white prints by the likes of Richard Avedon give it an air of understated luxury. There’s an undeniable pleasure in sitting on the sprawling terrace overlooking the soaring skyscrapers of Sathorn with a glass of bubbly in hand.
When even the plates cost a whopping US$1,000 a piece and original Warhols line the walls, you know you’re in for an opulent dining experience. Yet, while it’s easy to get caught up in the swank red-and-black design and glitzy details, it’s the food that’s the real luxury here. Foie gras, caviar, scallops, sea urchin, and edible gold leaf make regular cameos on a menu clearly catering to the one-percent.
Hidden behind an unmarked wooden door in chi-chi Thonglor, this speakeasy is a poorly kept secret among Bangkok’s elite night owls. When you step inside the three-story shophouse, you’re greeted by the sight of a long marble bar and brass detailings glinting in a crimson glow. The mixologists know exactly how to transform the shelves of spirits, many of them obscure, into exceptional craft elixirs.
