Bath Restaurant Bangkok
Bath Restaurant Bangkok casual fine dining experience
A new dining experience has been launched in downtown Bangkok. Bath restaurant has opened it’s doors for people to eat world class food with chilled out music in a unpretentious and relaxed atmosphere.
Nestled half way down Sukhumvit Soi 16 Bangkok like an oasis in the desert is Bath restaurant and bar. Inspired by the ancient baths with their hedonistic pleasures and tasty delights of the Roman empire, this lounge and bar will not only surprise you with its uniqueness and very much understated attention to detail, but will make you feel very relaxed at the same time.
“We are determined to create the quintessential casual fine dining experience in Bangkok” Richard told me, and you can see he is very relaxed and at home in his surroundings.
“All too often people have to get dressed up to experience nouvelle cuisine, and often cannot really relax as it all about the airs and graces one is expected to keep up whilst dining in fine restaurants. We are bringing Quality home cooked dishes in a very casual ambience, we don’t care what you look like or how you are dressed, just come for great food and quality mood music” Richard explained.
Design and concept
The decor of Bath is steeped in deep traditions, every brick of the building has been brought down from Ayutthaya and was hand made using the same principles that the ancient Thai temples were made from. The water features inside have deep meditation and Feng Shui significance.
“It was important to us to get the mix between old and new, embracing the best of each time” Pat told me. “Not just in the décor but in our food as well. We have Thai chefs who have been through a very intensive training camp to be creative with molecular recipes with exact temperatures embracing technology, yet many of our dishes are all about fresh food marinated and slow cooked for hours using sous Vide methodology to bring out the true flavours and embracing the old methods that have stood the test of time. Again this is all part of the ‘overall experience’ we want our patrons to enjoy at Bath.”
The owners are so relaxed they didn’t even want to be labelled a Thai or European restaurant, their menu being very comprehensive with many dishes from all nationalities.
Richard has a deep love of music and you can’t help feel relaxed at Bath. The playlist is very ambient and deeply relaxing.
“We expect some dancing on weekend nights, no techno or rave, but just for lovers to get acquainted and for people to just be themselves” Richard explained.
Pat and Richard have a string of very successful restaurants and bars behind them with over 15 years’ experience in the industry in many parts of the world. Their sophisticated relationship between bar and food makes for a very unique and enjoyable experience. Their passion and love for people to have a good time and chill out in their company, rather than feel pretentious and uneasy will make for Bath to become a household name in the Bangkok restaurant scene sooner than even they expect.
