“Innovative Drinks on a Great Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

I have been three times in the past month to Water Library Thonglor, and I find this place to be an excellent place to hang out with friends, have some cocktails and try a quite interesting food concept. The service is outstanding, Mirko the manager is a super professional manager, and he took really good care of us. The atmosphere is really nice, lots of local stylish people hanging out there, and some international crowd too.

I didn´t have the chance of trying the actual restaurant because the chef was out of town and the only food service available was the bar menu, which I had some very nice dishes.

I think this place is worth visiting and probably going back, It won´t disappoint you. Congratulations to everyone at Water Library.

“Quite Exceptional!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

Whilst extremely expensive, the food; quality and presentation is exceptional. The wine pairing is of a very high standard and the is generous in it's offerings. The culinary team engage with the diners and explain about each course, gives a great insight and shows just how much preperation and thought has gone into the food. The waiting staff are extremely attentive. Having eaten in many fine restaurants in major cities across the world can genuinely say this is up there with the finest.

“Master Mirco”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

Visiting Water Library Thonglor is to witness a master mixologist at work -- amazing materials using unconventional techniques results in a one-of-a-kind dining/drinking experience led by Mirco, the head mixologist. A new addition to the bar is its upscale bar-food menu, adding to its charm as a sophisticated chill-spot amidst the Thong Lor night scene.
