Spot On

Spot On

Just like the beach

More on Sukhumvit

There’s nothing nicer than sinking your feet into deep sand, feeling the breeze ruffle your hair and sipping on a fruity cocktail. Well, that’s the thinking behind Spot On, a newcomer on the buzzing Thong Lo nightlife scene, anyway.

Travelfish says:
Beachside in Bangkok

Beachside in Bangkok.

The beach-themed bar attempts to recreate the laidback vibe of seaside sundowners in the heart of Bangkok with a section of sand-covered floor, decking, chilled out music, aquarium tables, palm trees and an open-sided bar. Slip off your shoes on arrival, pop on a pair of the bar’s flip flops and sink back into a sofa to enjoy the bar’s cocktails and bar snacks. Squint hard enough and you may just feel as though you’ve been transported to a Thai beach bar. Or not.

Whether it captures the bohemian atmosphere it’s going for is debatable and, even if it does, the consistently quiet nights here suggest the Bangkok crowd aren’t looking to kick off their flip-flops, but rather slip on their most towering high heels and flock to the crowded (and similarly priced) high-society venues nearby.

Come for the beach, stay for the crowds

Come for the beach, stay for the… crowds?

That said, the cocktails are worth a try. The experimental menu includes tasty options such as mango daiquiri, “Spice Me Up” (a not-so-spicy mix of vodka, triple sec, chilli and brown sugar) and “The 7 Deadly Sins” (tequila, gin, vodka, contreau, cognac, peppermint, sparkling wine and pineapple juice). With the starting price for drinks at a wallet-lightening 220 baht and, though very tasty, those drinks erring a little on the weak side, it’s unlikely you’ll want to spend the whole evening sipping on the pricey concoctions.

For an early-evening venue the food menu is quite limited, but includes some tempting Thai and Western sharer snacks, including spring rolls, buffalo wings, laap, fried and mini pork burgers, all around the 200 baht mark and really hitting the spot on taste.

Both your lungs and bank manager will thank you for passing up on the mini-shishas, which come in at an alarmingly expensive 327 baht. Despite the price tag they’re prepared poorly and end up tasting like charcoal rather than the tasty apple or mint flavours you might be expecting.

So come, have a drink and a bit of a flight of imagination, then perhaps head somewhere a little cheaper. VW bars, anyone? Cheap Charlie’s?
