Australian nightlife designer and creator Ashley Sutton was already famed for his bizarre and unique Iron Fairies bar, but rather than open a sequel, he made a different film altogether, this time round creating what he termed "a fish and chips saloon for sexy people." Like Iron Fairies, Fat Gutz is dark and intimate, with a mariner's saloon vibe. The menu here lays tribute to sunken ships, with an epic drink list created by New York cocktail whiz Joseph Boroski, featuring Neptunia's (made with white rum, pomegranate, molasses, mint, fresh lime and champagne), or the Junyo Maru (Irish whiskey, honey melon lime, and crushed cucumber). The fish and chips are also pretty stellar, and the folks eating them certainly aren't representing the labor class segment of Thai society. Other menu items include oysters, sashimi, and even desserts like chocolate rum brownies topped with strawberries. Good live blues and other tunes get played regularly, and the atmosphere is always lively with a very well to do Thong Lor crowd packing the place out daily.
264 Thong Lor Soi 12 (Grass Thonglor, First Floor)
- Bars: "Soi 12 is a bit of a walk from the Sukhumvit intersection, best to grab a cab or motorcycle taxi to get here. There are drink specials before 9pm so it pays to hit happy hour."
- Best for Bars Because: For innovative cocktails in a creative environment, you will marvel over Fat Gutz.
