One could probably write a War and Peace length guidebook on where to drink in Bangkok. Not only are there so many old favorites, there are also endless numbers of new, novel, and well worth it places going up every week. Heading the list is the completely unique and creative Smalls, a Parisienne style bohemian bar run by the former owner of the famed Q Bar. Then there are the designer mixologists, several whom have won awards and accolades and can create incredible cocktails like at Nori's Bar, Sugar Ray, or Escapades. If drinks with views are your thing, the heady Moon Bar gives one of the city's most dazzling panoramas. For beer aficionados, Brew has just about the largest selection of every type of beer in the world to be found in town, and then there is Mikkeller, the Danish craft beer brewery that is turning heads and wowing palettes, not to be missed for lovers of great micro beer. And if you just want to kick back amidst funky couches, old record turntables, and plenty of retro, the aptly named Shades of Retro is a great choice, not to mention that they serve up some of the best caiparinhias in town. You certainly won't go thirsty in this town.
