'Iron Fairies' is a wonderful time travel and mental escape from the hot, crowded streets of Bangkok. I stepped in and was taken aback to some earlier era in Europe, happily. Decent drink list, okay food, and live jazz crooner nightly. Be sure to dress 'smart casual', find a seat and lose a few hours at this unique bar off... More

The music is great, location is easy to find. Beautiful place in the middle of city. Surely will come back again someday for the drinks and the perfect fairy magical ambience! Perfect for enjoying good time for couple or group of friends.

Great band with an excellent vocalist. But as for the rest, I didn't care too much about this place. It is dark. It feels claustrophobic. My Singha draft was stale and skunky - I should have ordered a proper drink instead. Service staff seemed quite distant.

If I'm in Thonglor i always take time to visit my favorite bar! The bar is moody and has an amazing ambiance about it. From the moment you walk in you feel as though your in a front room of a castle, gargoyles everywhere and fairy dust!! Cocktails are great with their signature "smoke in the bottle" it's a must...

Place was nice, but very overrated. We chose our accommodation based on visiting. Although it had an appeal and we expected higher than average prices for cocktails, we left after first drink as over 200baht was added to our 2 drinks based on added VAT and service charge. On top of this we sat next to a young European lad... More

Every night, even on a Sunday or Monday, there will be live music. Food is good, and cocktails are strong. Seating is a little cramped, and the venue is dark, but this is a wonderful bar to go to if you are seeking some live music.

The life and chatter. The smiles on the faces of every client that appears. This is a happy place. The propensity for humans to find happiness is astonishing. The foods aromas. It's engaging like nowhere else. Awesome people. Flickering candles and dim light. It's the quiet before the storm and you can watch it build to a crescendo. The manager... More

We had dinner down the road and I'd researched a few nearby bars to try after on our last night in Bangkok. We stumbled across the Iron Fairies first so went in and were glad we did. It looks a little random from the outside (like a covered up shop window) but once you go inside it's like walking into... More

Good food! Good live music and interesting scenery!! It's my favorite in Thonglor. It seems a little creepy inside once you first walk in, but sit there and get use to the place then you will start getting comfortable!!! Highly recommend!!

Neighbourhood Profile
Thong Lor & Ekamai
Known as Bangkok’s hippest neighbourhood, Thong Lor and Ekamai is where the city's well-dressed and well-heeled spend their nights sipping cocktails in hidden speakeasies and posh restaurants. Live it up in one of Thong Lor's extravagant clubs and be prepared to brush shoulders with a Thai celebrity or two. While great for a night out, the area is nothing short of interesting during the daytime, either. Expect a mix of savvy coffee shops, pop-up bars and loads of vintage stores, brought to you by hip locals with eyes for design.
