The future’s bright, the future’s orange… Well, the present, actually, if you head down to Le Méridien Bangkok where, from now until April 30, 2019, the outside area has been turned into a small part of southern France or Italy with its Aperol Spritz Pop-Up Bar.
Based on the color of the cocktail of choice—3 parts Prosecco, 2 parts Aperol, and 1 part soda—this area of Sam Yan has been turned into a Mediterranean glow of orange.
Good vibes and a bright orange Volkswagen combi serving drinks (with live DJ every Friday night) ensures that the ambiance is purely chilled and atmospheric, surely the spot to start everything a weekend. With a distinctly Southern European flavor, award-winning Italian chef Marco serves his own style of cuisine which you will be hard pressed to find anywhere else like this in this in Bangkok.
Running from now to coincide with the cooler season, Le Meridien is bringing you a taste of La Dolce Vita where you can go to relax and be mistaken for being in Provence and not Bangkok.
What: Aperol Spritz Pop-Up Bar
When: From now until April 30, 2019
Where: Le Méridien Bangkok (40/5 Surawong Road)
