Bed Supperclub, Bangkok

This post is a little different to my previous posts in the respect I don't have any images of the food I ate here to show you. I did take pictures but the lighting (neon) did not lend itself to kindly to the images. That said I decided it was worthy of a place in my Blog as it was one of the most unusual dining experiences I had ever had up to that point. So let me introduce you to that place.

Bed Supperclub 

How many times after eating a meal, feeling stuffed have you said the only thing missing in this restaurant is a bed? I know I have!
Well at Bed Supperclub you actually get to dine in one ! well not exactly a bed as in getting under a duvet, more like one long communal mattress with comfy pillows ! 

Bed Supper club can be found on fashionable Sukhumvit Soi 11. The building is hard to miss, a futuristic pod on stilts looking like something out of the Jetsons (Animated futuristic Sci-Fi comedy of the 60s-80s). Just looking at it from the outside leaves you in no doubt it will be special inside.

Bed Supperclub, Bangkok

Bed Supper club is split into two areas the club/bar being one end of the pod whilst the restaurant is in the other half. The restaurant has an all white interior, splashes of colour are provided by soft pastel shades of Red, Blue and Yellow neon lights that change colour. The large communal beds line either side of the room with a galleried style staircase and landing leading to a mezzanine floor of the same.

The ambiance had a lively buzz feel and sounds of soft style lounge music played in the background. The white interior acted as a blank canvas for a projected image on the wall of a very large eye that looked around the room. Performers periodically walked around with placards saying things like "No kissing", "No Hugging", "Obey", "Order More ", it felt like we were in the middle of a living art installation. The same performers put on a dancing show later in the evening.

The food style was western / Thai fusion and very good. Guests are encouraged to kick off their shoes and climb onto the large communal beds to dine. it's the ultimate chill-out dining experience and even more unusual was at the end of the meal the in-house masseuse's  gave you a 20 minute leg and foot massage for no more than a couple of quid.
Now what's not to like about kicking back after a meal, drink in hand and a foot rub, Pure bliss.

Getting comfy

Admittedly this would seem ludicrous in a normal table an chair setting but Bed Supperclub is different, in this environment it just works. Anyone who has been to Bangkok or anywhere in Thailand will tell you Thai massage is offered everywhere you go, even on the streets.
So when in Thailand do as the Thai's do, kick back and enjoy.
