Hip spot, great cocktails

More on Sukhumvit

Sukhumvit Soi 11 is bursting with newish high-end bars and restaurants, including Marshmallow, which opened its doors in early 2012. If you have something a little more respectable than flip-flops and harem pants to wear, you might want to venture into Bangkok’s hi-so (that’s high society for the uninitiated) territory.

Travelfish says:
Do you dare?

Do you dare?

Though there’s no dress code, inside the dimmed lighting, chandeliers, shiny surfaces and bar stocked with Ketel vodka, Moet champagne, Karakuchi sake and other premium alcohol, along with a local clientele dressed to the nines might leave you feeling a bit rough around the edges if you haven’t at least run a comb through your hair.

Marshmallow is perfect for a warm-up session to a big night out – especially thanks to its location within tottering distance of Q Bar, Nest, Levels and Bed. But the venue also makes an equally good spot for a romantic rendezvous with someone worth impressing. Outdoor seating beckons for quieter nights and people-watching, or there’s indoor seating, including a few tables and bar chairs where, unsurprisingly, the more dedicated drinkers tend to prop themselves.

Compared to nearby Oskar, a similar concept, Marshmallow is quiet. While you probably won’t have as raucous a time as you would in more packed bars, you will get better service, and room to breathe. But that doesn’t mean to say Marshmallow isn’t lively. The atmosphere buzzes on weekends thanks to attracting some of the best DJs in the city to perform every Friday and ‘Pop Culture Thursdays’, when the best in 70s, 80s, 90s and noughties R&B and pop helps get you in the mood for the night ahead. But, thankfully, the DJs create a fun atmosphere, not a thumping din that you have to shout to be heard over.

Despite appearances, both food and drinks are reasonably priced, especially on Happy Wednesdays, when drinks are buy one get one free all day. Know what decadence feels like as you munch on salads for 220 baht or share platters of cold cuts and cheese or a plate of oysters, which will both set you back 490 baht. But the main appeal is the cocktails. The bar staff really know their stuff, and the cocktail menu will keep your tastebuds engaged all night. Espresso martinis, electric ice teas, a whole host of flavoured mojitos, as well as all the classics, go for around 190 baht.

When the bar closes at around 02:00, there are a multitude of options for further drinking on Soi 11 — or head somewhere to really kick on, like Wong’s. If you plan to venture elsewhere, be warned that the local taxi drivers will be unwilling to take you anywhere but Mix club — they will often take you there for free and receive commission when you arrive. Don’t bother getting into a taxi that won’t take you by the meter and instead walk to Sukhumvit Road and hail a taxi there.
