Planted under the inviting shadow of giant old trees in one of the numerous backstreets of Thong Lor, Moon Glass is the perfect refuge to relax and unwind from the bussling delight that is Bangkok.
Being again in the area in the morning I was looking for a nice place to start the day and this one seemed to fit my criteria. With its modern design with a glass-encased bar, wooden floor, metal details and comfy sofas it ranks amongst the coziest bars around Thong Lor.
Unfortunately it wasn’t possible to try their banana crêpe flambé as the cook arrives only after 11 pm. At the end I ordered chocolate banana latte which had no trace of banana or chocolate but it was full of coffee instead. I pointed it out to the waiter and he immediately brought me another one … of the same.
However, it was an hour well spent, sometimes it is not what they give you but how they make you feel, and this garden has a great atmosphere. Probably I would return to try their restaurant which offers a mix of European and Thai food.
Moon Glass is on Sukhumvit 53, next to Greyhound’s headquarters. Nearest BTS – Thong Lor plus two minutes walking.
