The 360 degree view is a major selling point for Zoom at Anantara, and the restaurant is cleverly laid out to allow guests to make the most of it. There are two levels, with the large polished rectangular bar and dance floor in the centre. At either end there is a terrace that has a lounge feeling to it, with comfy sofas and low tables.
Every seat in the house allows you to look down over Bangkok, with the most popular spot being in the direction of the evening’s sunset. Although Zoom is a chic looking place, there’s no need to stand on ceremony here. The background music varies from down-tempo electronica to sexy samba beats. From 21:00 a DJ plays lounge house tracks and every other Wednesday it’s smooth and sultry, thanks to a famous Thai saxophone artist.
The cocktails are split into three categories: original creations, classics and champagne-based, so guests are really spoilt for choice. Of course, it’s worth trying the original signature cocktails, as they show off the skills of the mixologist and bar tending team.
The food is split into two categories. For those who aren’t looking to eat here but are feeling peckish, there are some great bar snacks including chicken satay, foie gras crostini and grilled salmon skewers, served with xo sauce.
Those coming for dinner won’t be disappointed either. We recommend the Beef Tenderloin of the Duck Breast.
