Insider's Guide to Ari: Best Bars


I've already shared my picks for the best places in Ari to grab a bite or study the day away over a great cup of joe, but what about for those times that you just need to unwind? Here's a look at my favorite watering holes in the neighborhood:

SaltThis sexy little restaurant is perfect for dates with its large selection of international cuisine (can't go wrong with the wood-fired pizza!), intimate outdoor seating and craft cocktails. I'm including Salt on the list of best bars because the cocktails really are something special. You can enjoy the handcrafted concoctions within the rustic charm of the interior or opt to lounge outside on the restaurant's illuminated lawn and patio.

FatbirdFatbird is Ari's ultimate hipster hangout, great for grabbing a drink and catching up with friends. Design lovers will appreciate the quirky framed photos adorning the walls and the treasure-trove of knick-knacks throughout the bar.

Summer Street BangkokServing up fresh seafood and a wide assortment of beers, this trendy food truck is an Ari staple no matter the season. It's the perfect place for a quick beer after work or to while away the hours on a breezy night. Seats fill up quickly, so it's best to get here early!

O'glee: For the largest selection of pale ales, ciders and craft beers in the neighborhood, look no further than O'glee. This pub-style bar and restaurant offers a cozy atmosphere with exposed brick walls and hunter green accents. The Zeffer Red Apple Cider imported from New Zealand is one of the best I've tried in Asia!
