    » The Setting: Surrounded by a jungle of business towers and high rise condos is Chunky. From the outside it looks upscale yet modest in comparison to its neighbours. A step inside will reveal a cosy loft space with high ceilings and generous amounts of sunlight, creating an open ambience. The modest yet sophisticated interior makes it feel like you're stepping into someone's high-rise loft. There's plenty of seating and a prep kitchen ready to whip up drinks on the ground floor while a pleasant little loft for more intimate seating can be found up the staircase at the back of the restaurant.

    On the right track

    Guru, Chris Raufeisen, Published on 02/06/2017

    » <b>The setting:</b> A stone throw away from Makkasan Airport Link and Petchaburi MRT and nestled high above the hustle and bustle of midtown Bangkok is The Station, Mercure Bangkok Makkasan's answer to luxury, all-day dining. Towering eight floors above a cacophony of car horns and motorcycle engines is an escape into solitude and a gateway to culinary satisfaction. With high ceilings and wall-to-wall glass windows, it offers an open and sophisticated ambience along with picturesque views of midtown and beyond. You'll see snapshots of commuter life, from the airport rail, to the train and the fast-moving Kamphaeng Phet Road which make The Station aptly named. It is also aptly decorated with a theme that pushes its namesake. Tasteful yet subtle designs reflect the atmosphere of a grand central station, with vertical bars on booths that emulate the cattle catcher. The plush seats are reminiscent of the interior in a luxury carriage. Above is a giant sky window with a neat graphic of what looks like the dome of a grandiose train station, really pulling the look of the room together.
