This much talked about bar does live up to its hype. The brainchild of Australian designer/author/creator Ashley Sutton, Iron Fairies is a bizarre blend of Gothic Victorian fantasy where blacksmith's forge meets bar meets gallery. Sutton's metal fairies, little metallic figures made on the premises, bring to life his children's books fairy tales, and the bar itself is dark and dungeon-like, with a narrow spiral staircase leading one in to the mysteries ahead. Not only is the decor extremely bizarre and interesting, but the drinks here are potent, made by mixologist extraordinaire Joseph Boroski, and include all sorts of fused concoctions featuring the likes of blow torched marshmallows or absinthe fairy potion cocktails. The food is also on the gourmet end, and many consider Iron Fairies to make the best hamburger in Bangkok, complete with brie cheese and a knife embedded in the patty and bun when it arrives at one's table. Despite the joint being narrow and intimate, they still make room for the occasional live band here as well, and if the drinks and burgers don't enchant you, the fairies almost certainly will.
- Thonglor's Best Nightlife: "It is a bit far to get here on foot from the BTS Skytrain, best to grab a cab or motorcycle taxi from the Thong Lor-Sukhumvit intersection. Casual wear like shorts, singlets, and sandals are not the norm here, so go a bit more well heeled."
- Best for Thonglor's Best Nightlife Because: For complete novelty and a bar you won't soon forget, Iron Fairies hits the mark.
