Botanic Bar Review
This cool city lounge features cordovan banquettes that encircle the U-shaped, marble-top bar. Muddlers (crushed ice drinks) are the specialty, and bring in mostly young professionals, including off-duty medics from the nearby hospital. Celebrated Thai chef Nu Suandokmai recently returned home after years in Sydney to transform the restaurant menu, which now focuses on Thai street food. Botanic Bar is open until the wee hours Tuesday to Sunday.
