Bangkok never lacks venues that celebrate its sweeping diversity: Welcoming guests last week was a glamorous new riverside bar billed as a “decadent destination for eccentric extravagance” and “celebration of self-expression.”
Located inside the five-star Avani+ Riverside Bangkok hotel, Lost and Found is designed to be equal parts stunning and inclusive with dance, music, drag shows, burlesque and more.
Behind the venue is nightlife mogul Ashley Sutton, whose past credits include whimsical Bangkok hotspots Iron Fairies, Maggie Choo’s and Sing Sing Theater as well as the equally dreamlike Dragonfly and Dear Lilly in Hong Kong.
Within the dark, elongated, bunker-like space – capped with a curved, gilded ceiling, which makes the whole space look as if it were straight out of The Matrix – revellers will find on stage some of the city’s top performers plying their trade every weekend.
Expect to be immersed in a rotating roster of theatrical performances, from drag shows and live music to puppetry and burlesque.
The food and drinks lend themselves to the theme. The upscale bar bites — categorized as “appetizing” “mouth-watering,” “show-stopping,” “flaming,” and “tempting” — are approachable options dressed to the nines, like the patatas bravas with chorizo and beef jus (THB220) or the crispy squid with smoked onion mayo (THB280).
For the drinks, they speak to the kinds of performances seen on stage: Queen of Lost Souls (THB350), Vaudeville (THB350) and Rainbow Flag (THB350).
