6 Reasons We Love Ari, Bangkok
Ari in Bangkok has become one of the trendiest areas in the city full of quirky cafes, lively bars and great restaurants. Let's take a stroll through Ari to have a look at some of our favorite places in the area.
1. Dice! Cafe
Yes, it wouldn't make sense if we didn't mention Dice! Cafe here, would it? Start the day with a nice breakfast, a chat or some work in the co-working space. Come back later to play some board games with friends. Dice! Cafe has several floors, all different in function and design. The first floor is a chilled out hipster cafe with nice all-day food and drinks. Second floor is the board game area with 100s of games to choose from and Game Masters to help with the rules. Third floor and up to 5th floor is the co-working, meeting room and events spaces. There are several events weekly from discussion and storytelling groups, improv classes, gaming meetups, house parties and trivia night.
