Went for dinner and drinks with a friend. The cocktails were incredible - very creative, tasty and I must say, very strong ;) The food was very tasty although the portions were quite small (we had a salad and the ravioli). Good music with a live DJ. You can either sit inside our in the outdoor covered area. The only... More

I went there with a friend who celebrated her birthday there. It was a rainy night so we were happy to find this cool cozy modern bar. Loved the interiors. We had great small dishes because it was full upstairs. My first glass of wine was a bit small I thought but as soon as I mentioned it to the... More

The Water Library is a great place to go for perfect drinks. An extremely helpful and knowledgeable team there make you feel welcome. The selection of back bar spirits is spot on. If you can't find a drink there then they will create something for you. The head mixologist Mirko is a great host. I did not have any food... More

Always my first choice for a great night out with a large variety of cocktails. Impossible to leave this place sober. My favorite cocktail is still sexy lychee. Food is also great, my favorite is their cold pasta signature dish. GO THERE!

The cocktails are amazing. The location is not that beautiful, no scenic view. So 4 star is OK. Nice neighborhood with many other bars and restaurants. Thonglor is hot!

I visited the Water Library Thanglor and met with Mirko, the GM after I was greeted by his staff. The immediate attention to detail was delightful. I enjoyed appetizers including crab rolls, scallops and rocket salad. The Wine was delicious and then I transitioned to a Sexy Lychee Cocktail that was topped off with home made bitters which was tasty.... More

Big applaud to Chef Johari...the meal was so excellent. When I read about the review of this set menu, I was so excited and looking forward to try it. The most expensive 10courses set menu in Bangkok, with only 10 lucky diners per night, where the chef himself plate and decor each dish in front of you, is definitely worth... More
