The Glaz Bar at the Plaza Athenee Bangkok is where you go to chill out after a long day at the office. Its decor and furnishings evoke elegance. The comfortable lounge chairs invite you to just plop down, order your favorite cocktails and listen to the mellow sounds of the pianist and the very talented jazz singer. For sheer relaxation in the middle of Bangkok, you cannot do much better.
Our group went during the happy hour period when drinks are at a discount (not buy 1 get 1 as in most other bars). We opted for the all-you-can-drink deal, which worked out great as we all drank a selection of cocktails and Chilean wines on offer. The bartender mixed up fine bloody marys but his margaritas were peculiarly way below standard. The wines were of good quality. The food here was forgettable, with fish and chips and cold cuts coming in small portions, and the relatively compact round tables did not help matters. I would just pass on the food here and order drinks only the next time.
The service was good at the outset of our night, but quality dipped slightly as the place got busier. The Glaz Bar is where you go early and plant yourself for a nice night out with friends.
