The Iron Fairies in Bangkok

The Iron Fairies is an excellent Thonglor bar that’s designed like an ironsmith's workshop. Think dark and broody, with wrought iron staircases, exposed pipes and dilapidated timber and brick.

Bottles of fairy dust are stacked in rows, and everywhere you look, you could chance upon little iron figurines of the winged creatures that give the Gothic Victorian bar its name. The Iron Fairies Bar’s cocktail menu has some excellent signature creations, and their beers list has a standard collection of Thai labels with some Japanese, Mexican and Dutch offerings that are fairly commonplace in Bangkok. Food-wise, the bar is famed across the city for 1 thing: burgers.
The kind of giant, hulking creations that are served on a wooden chopping board, with a steak knife to hold everything in place. All burgers are served with thick wedges, and will probably keep you satisfied all night.
The Iron Fairies operates on a first-come, first-serve basis. On weekends, it's fairly packed all night long. From 9pm onwards, a live band plays jazz and blues.
