Thailand’s highest restaurant and bar open at the Mahanakhon building

Mahanakhon Bangkok SkyBar, Thailand’s highest restaurant and bar is now open at Bangkok’s landmark, the King Power Mahanakhon building.

Located in the heart of Sathorn and directly connected to Chong Nonsi BTS station, the new dining venue is situated on the 76th and 77th floor of the famous pixelated building. Inspired by the Chao Praya river and the concept of an eclectic journey, a visit to the upscale modern brasserie allows one to step into an exotic escape from the usual hustle and bustle of Bangkok.

Tastefully designed indoor and outdoor seating areas, along with exclusive VIP lounges offer a comfortable dining venue for guests to enjoy world-class mixology and unique dishes. As Wilson Associates’ latest interior masterpiece led by Tristan Auer, Mahanakhon Bangkok SkyBar is Bangkok’snewest iconic dining destination.

Marc Begassat, Managing Director of King Power Mahanakhon said, “Following the successful launch of Thailand’s highest observation deck last November, it is a pleasure to announce the opening of Mahanakhon Bangkok SkyBar, Thailand’s highest restaurant and bar.”

The modern brasserie features a menu of sophisticated Western and Asian dishes along with signature creations by Executive Chef Joshua Cameron. Previously based in New York’s world-renowned Eleven Madison Park, the well-travelled US native finds culinary inspiration from his passion for travel and exploring international flavors. The menu is accompanied by an extensive list of classic cocktails and over 100 curated wines with an emphasis on natural wines.

An outdoor terrace is transformed to resemble an urban jungle, surrounding guests in abundant greenery to evoke the feeling of a forest in the sky. Designed by Tristan Auer’s world famous team at Wilson Associates, Mahanakhon Bangkok SkyBar is a journey that represents an urban escape for the modern city dweller and worldly traveller.

“The eclectic, yet elevated nature of this oasis in the clouds mirrors the style that our team is known around the world for bringing to our work,” said Auer, Principal of Wilson Associates’ Paris Atelier.

“Mahanakhon Bangkok SkyBar was designed to be equal parts welcoming and energetic, and we are honored to have been selected as the team to bring that vision to life.”

Mahanakhon Bangkok SkyBar will be led by Johan Per Simon Davidsson, a legendary force behind the success of multiple unique concept venues in the Bangkok hospitality industry. With over 15 years of high profile management experience and a passion in cocktail innovations, visitors can expect spectacular beverage, entertainment and shows in the near future.

The Mall Group will start charging 1 Baht Per Plastic Bag

Starting Wednesday, malls under one of the biggest operators in Thailand will charge 1 baht per plastic bag.

The Mall Group will start charging for plastic bags beginning on this year’s International Plastic Bag Free Day, or July 3.

One baht proceeds will be donated to the World Wildlife Foundation Thailand.

The bag scheme will extend to department stores under The Mall Group such as The Mall, Emporium, EmQuartier, Siam Paragon and BluPort Hua Hin Resort Mall. All branches of Gourmet Market supermarkets are also included.

“I’m really happy they’re charging for plastic bags. It’s a great step forward. I’m so happy they’re focusing on saving the planet,” Ralyn “Lilly” Satidtanasarn, an 11-year-old climate activist said. In 2018, Lilly gave a presentation to The Mall execs urging them to stop using plastic bags.

The Mall Group previously already had no-bag days on the 1st, 4th, and 16th of every month. Starting Wednesday, although bags will be available everyday, they have to be purchased. Customers who do not use a plastic bag will immediately get 10 points towards their M-Card membership (worth a 1.25 discount). Collecting 800 points makes one eligible for a 100 baht discount.

The bag ban comes hot on the heels of HomePro’s similar one-baht plan implemented in June. Rival mall operator Central Group also recently announced it will stop automatically giving out bags, on top of a complete bag ban on Tuesdays and the fourth of every month.
