Salt drags the young and fabulous and moneyed in every night to drink stylish cocktails and Japanese beer inside its minimalist glass cube of a dining room.
The industrial-chic cube is perched in front of a traditional Thai house on a grassy lawn, flanked by an outdoor patio popular during the cool season. The menu is ostensibly Japanese, but there is a pizza menu and a few pasta dishes to be had as well (and strangely enough, both the Italian and the Japanese is good).
Most people come for the scene, starting with dinner at Salt and then migrating across the street to the more casual Aree Bar, which is run by the same folks. Wear your fancy shoes and find someone to buy you breakfast. Dishes from 250 baht, cocktails from 175 baht.
If you're down with the upscale Western-Asian fusion thing, you also might check out places like Fatbird, Pla Dib, Marlin Cafe and Casa Azul, all located a stone's throw from Salt on Soi Ari.
