Ari is bursting with apartments and high-rise condos. Naturally, to cater to the large population of residents (and people who visit them), lots of affordable bars and restaurants have popped up in Ari, making it a perfect, low-key hangout spot.

Try Fatbird and O’glee for Western food and cold craft beer. For an even longer list of imported craft beers, stop by at Hor Hidden, a restaurant popular among locals for its pizza and pasta.

If you need to pick up a quick dinner, you will find hundreds of street food stalls lined up as soon as you come down the stairs of BTS Ari. Walk along the street and turn left at Soi 1 for famous Tom Yum Noodles at Pansen and more goodies from local food trucks.
