When the “winter” weather arrives in Thailand — meaning the end of the rainy season and relatively cooler and breezier temperatures — the open beer gardens start to sprout like weeds in Bangkok. ‘Tis the season.
But Absolut takes it one step further with its Absolut Parc which sets up from November 10 through December 3 in what is otherwise Paragon Parc, the event square behind the dancing fountains between Siam Paragon and Siam Discovery.
Rather than the usual beer towers, Absolut Parc serves up 750-ml vodka towers for 700-900 baht. Order a bottle or two of your favorite mixer as well. You won’t be drinking alone; the place really gets busy on weekends and calling for reservations is strongly recommended. Absolut Parc has a series of nightly concerts lined up as well. Performances start at 9:30-11pm and feature a variety of Thai performers including rock band Paradox (Nov 17) and rapper Joey Boy (Nov 24).
There is also an ice bar on site with four frozen tables. 180 baht gets you ten minutes inside and one vodka drink. (If you are really on a mission for a hangover, you can toss back another one for another 100 baht.)
For reservations call 084 717 3000. Warning: not much English spoken at this number but enough to give a name and time for your table. Find Absolut Parc Thailand on Facebook.
Absolut Parc opens at 6:30 pm daily from now through December 3.
