Panorama: Inspiring by Day, Latin by Night

Crowne Plaza Bangkok Lumpini Park has started a new concept at its signature restaurant Panorama. Billed as “Inspiring by Day, Latin by Night,” the new concept is a step forward from the hotel’s recent successful Brazilian promotion. With the concept, Panorama promises to be the most distinctive Latin restaurant in Bangkok besides offering panoramic views of the bustling Bangkok skyline. An overall Latin theme will be the centerpiece of the restaurant, with music and entertainment playing a big role to create a true-blue Latino atmosphere. DJs and live bands will be playing on special days of the week. The restaurant has two distinctive areas: The inside area for those wanting to enjoy a culinary journey and the deck bar; a meet and greet environment with “sharing” style dishes with high emphasis on wines by the glass and specialty cocktails such as: sangria, mojitos, caipirinhas in different sizes and flavors not forgetting their signature flavored spirits. Cuisine will range from Mexican, Peruvian, Chilean, Argentinean, Brazilian, and Cuban, and integrates Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, and French flavors. Special items will be prepared and served tableside by culinary experts. The restaurant is open for lunch (noon till 2 p.m.) and dinner (6-10:30 p.m.)
