Lounging @ Buri Tara



Buri meaning city (if my grade 6 Thai serves me correctly) and Tara means river, Buri Tara Bar and Restaurant may have a traditional name but nevertheless a modern and elegant atmosphere. Not to be confused with Buri Tara Resort in Krabi, this join is located in the heart of Bangkok on Rama III Road. When my friend dragged me there to go lounge I wasn't sure what to expect. I've heard that there are lots of trendy restaurant/lounge located by Chao Praya River in Bangkok and I've been to one called Good View the previous year. So when the two of us showed up, all the tables by the river were all taken up, of course. Disappointed, we scooted to the nearest table, hoping a better spot will soon turn up. The place is lit up with orange glow with live music in softly plays in the background, and not to mention a great view of the river and the city at night. Needless to say, it is the perfect spot for a romantic date or just relaxing after a stressful day.
