This bistro-bar is a hidden enclave on the sixth floor of the MINI Showroom, away from the hustle and bustle of party central Ekamai. Truly secretive as its name suggests, The Garret Secret Bistro-Bar offers a quiet city-line view with a snug yet modish setting - the glasshouse is adorned with coloured glass lampshades that hang above printed couches and wooden chiavari chairs, while the outdoor area is home to Italian stone fountains and calming foliage. Laid-back but still contending as a fine-dining establishment, you can also order food from Fuzio, the next-door Italian restaurant. But before you can get to this under-Instagrammed attic-like sanctuary, you'll have to venture through a seemingly-shady elevator and dimly-lit corridor - after all, there's nothing like a mini-adventure to work up an appetite for strong drinks and comfort food.
For appetisers, potato skins (250 baht) was selected. The main course and quintessence of American food _ the Original GR Beef Burger (320 baht) _ was a hit. All desserts at The Garret are home-made and apple Garret (190 baht) is one of its most-ordered treats.
Bistro-bars are a trending place to hang out at and the cocktails at The Garret don't disappoint. There's a long list of both girly and non-girly choices for concerned shutter-bugs to choose from and Richy (250 baht), a signature of vodka, lychee juice, passion fruit puree, lime juice and monin lavender syrup had a strong and sweet kick.
