GAA Opened by Noma-trained chef Garima Arora, Gaa is the new restau­rant on ev­ery­one’s lips. Two sea­sonal tast­ing menus are made mostly of in­gre­di­ents found along the strip of land from North­east In­dia to Bangkok, blend­ing mod­ern tech­niques with tra­di­tional cook­ing meth­ods. Top tip: skip the wine and opt for the juice-pair­ing pack­ages in­stead, which in­clude freshly pressed juices and house-made kom­bucha. Open for din­ner only. gaabk.com

Ware­house 30 This re­cently un­veiled cre­ative and re­tail hub con­sists of 43,000sqft of aban­doned World War Ii-era ware­houses. From a co-work­ing space to indie bou­tiques, cafes, juice bars and hip din­ing op­tions, ex­pect it to be­come Bangkok’s next hip­ster hotspot. open­box.in.th/ware­house-30 Al­fresco 64 Bangkok knows how to do sky-high rooftop bars. The lat­est place to see and be seen is Al­fresco 64. Sit­ting 800 feet in the air on the 64th floor of the Tower Club at Le­bua, it is the high­est out­door whisky bar in the world, and grants breath­tak­ing views of the city’s sky­line and the Chao Phraya River. le­bua.com.al­fresco-64

chi­na­town You might not think of Chi­na­town as a des­ti­na­tion for dis­cern­ing drinkers, and yet this area counts some of the most in­ter­est­ing bars in town: Tep Bar puts a Thai spin on well con­cocted li­ba­tions us­ing po­tent lo­cal spir­its; Ba Hao is Chi­nese-themed both in its strik­ing in­te­ri­ors and its drink menu; and the 16-seater Teens of Thai­land has earned a cult fol­low­ing for its gin in­fu­sions made from what­ever the own­ers find in the neigh­bour­ing stores of Chi­na­town. 6 Yaowarat Rd, Sam­phan­tha­wong
