Being in a new city always makes me excited to go out, explore and find out where the magic happens..
Bangkok was one of the cities I had never visited before. I booked my ticket to Thailand about one week before, so I was definitely way to unprepared. But hey, that usually makes it fun right?
So I had been figuring out where to go this night, you know, spending half of my day looking on Trip Advisor and in my Lonely planet. Then I stumbled upon this place. Why? I don’t know, certain places just attract you and have an atmosphere that makes you really enjoy the place. This is one of those places.
The place itself, it’s pretty dark in a good way. Waitresses walked around with a flashlight already close to them to help customers look at the menu. At the same time you’re pleasantly surprised by a live band playing close to you.
The place itself, has amazing cocktails (quite a big selection involving absinthe, the green fairy)! And if the cocktails make you hungry, they even claim to have the best burgers in Bangkok :)! Except for the great drinks and food, they have the atmosphere. There is even one table you can only find by going through a ‘secret’ doors. And that’s what I like about it. They didn’t put down some chairs and tables and give people some beer and wine, no, it’s a whole experience.
As you can see my obsession, I just loved the little bottles of fairy dust. On my defense, they all all around you :).
So the fairy part is pretty clear. You wanna know why they call it The Iron Fairies? Except for it being magically, it’s totally designed as an ironsmith workshop:
You wanna go visit? This is the address:
394 Thonglor Road, Sukhumvit 55, Bangkok
Just be sure to look on your right, the entrance is quite hard too find! Also, don’t be too late – live music starts at 21:00 and since the place has a capacity of just 55 people, you wanna make sure you have a seat! Enjoy!!
