At the Iron Fairies, have a drink with Harry Potter

distinctive

The most surprising bar in Bangkok, Iron Fairies recreates on its three storeys the Gothic decor of a fairy tale.

This place is in a league of its own. Its origin is a series of illustrated fairy tales by the colourful Australian entrepreneur Ashley Sutton, which have sold more than 200,000 copies in four languages.

The atmosphere in this former ironworks is a mix of Harry Potter and crowded jazz club, with three floors of dark alcoves, spiral staircases, wooden walkways, strange windows in fairy dust colours, vintage club chairs and ‘elven' statuettes, all bathed in darkness.

The hearty Australian beef burgers are by far the best in town, and the absinthe cocktails by master mixer Joseph Boroski are a big draw, as are the jazz concerts at 9:00 pm. Before you leave, remember to try to find the back door of the secret bar on the third floor. The Iron Fairies never cease to surprise!
