The garden fronting Thai restaurant Kram welcomes a beach-themed cocktail bar, which is possibly the closest in Sukhumvit you can get to a tropical island experience. The brainchild of the people behind Blaq Lyte dance club in Thonglor and bar-slash-art gallery Future Factory in Ari, Coastal takes on a beachy atmosphere with rustic bamboo-shack interiors festooned with trendy umbrella and colorful inflatable tubes. Adding to the laidback feel are mats for lounging on the grass and low khan tok-style tables.
Sweet and fruity cocktails are the bar’s main focus, as in the Smashing Basil, a Mojito-lookalike that is a light, gin-based concoction with a hint of Thai basil (B340), and the fiery yet refreshing Sweet Juan, which combines chili-infused tequila with pineapple juice, lime and cilantro (B340). For something a bit more grown-up, go for the Cottonmouth, a sipping drink that mixes gold and dark rum with slight hints of citrus (B380).
