Tuba Bar

They are all part of the furniture at Tuba, a bar and eatery in Bangkok where resistance is a design proclamation. From the naked representations on  the dividers to the vintage confounding furniture, Tuba is similar to no other bar in  Bangkok – or Thailand. Part classical display, part bohemian home base, with a differed  Thai­Italian propelled menu and one of the longest cocktails records in the city, Tuba  feels more like a whimsical companion's home than a bar and restaurant. Come here with a gathering of companions, get yourselves anunfastenedniche, sink Into an old fashioned couch.The choice of European draft brews on offer puts most  different bars to disgrace, with Boddingtons, Paulaner, Guinness and Hoegaarden to  look over for around 230 baht a half quart.

Iron Fairies

Iron Fairies is a mystical bar that is outlined like an ironsmith's workshop: dim and broody, with fashioned iron staircases, uncovered pipes and broken down timber and block. Bottles pixie dust are stacked in lines, and all over you look, you could risk upon minimal iron dolls of the winged animals that give the bar its name. Open subsequent to 2010, Iron Fairies moved in 2013 (however just three entryways down the road) and extended its operation so now it is a labyrinth of staircases, mystery entryways and dim recesses. The previous premises were tiny to the point that it was a steady fight to get in or out, keeping in mind it is still a tight crush, however, no matter you are standing or sitting you will certainly be in awe with its stylistic theme.
