“Cool place”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Cool place to hang and listen to some good jazz. Really nice lay out, dim, industrial feel. Now that they have expanded there is more room. Decent drinks and a good burger. Best to go with a few friends.

“Nice place to check out!”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

Well, I think you need to check this place for at least once.

Pros:

1- Nice atmosphere.
2- Good music.
3- Food was good.
4- I loved their fairy drinks.
5- Cool design. It felt more like an engine room in a ship. Very different.
6- Busy in a good way. You feel its relaxed and chaotic at the same time.

Cons:

1- You will miss it a couple of times trying to locate it.
2- Darkish inside a bit.
3- Limited menu if you are vegan.

I will go again next time. Maybe with a friend.

“intimate and sparkly”
Reviewed July 16, 2014 via mobile

gorgeous intimate unique venue
love this place - the atmosphere, jazz music, service was great

we bought wine by the glass which was average (330 baht which is explains the quality) - if planning on staying longer invest in a nicer bottle

sparkly

“Really disappointing”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

After a few recommendation for this place as a "must see" in Bangkok and reading all the reviews glorifying this place, I was really disappointed with my experience and could not wait to get out of the place. 1. THE FOOD was really less then an average you'd expect from place of this kind. Absolutely tasteless salads, tuna and shrimps served from frozen products topped up with pre manufactured mayo, no taste, no idea behind, not containing ingredients listed on the menu ... 2. SERVICE - not one waiter spoke fluent English. Not one of them was friendly and smiling the way most of the Thais in the service industry are. None of them knew the menu, or could answer our questions... 3.MUSIC - there was a "jazz" band playing - it was so loud, you could not hear a person next to you and besides that it was far far away from what I would call "jazz" concert, as most of the songs were obvious pop hits with a really cheap elevator music sound to it. ... ATMOSPHERE - the place is interesting in design, but coming from Europe, it is definitely not mind blowing, as you have hundreds of more stylish and interesting placed with charm of old times. The design is actually bit over the top, the light is so low, you do not see what is on the table, or read the menu.... so to summarise, definitely not a place to eat, to talk to friends, Ok to have one drink to see the design and move on.....
