SeaMet Bar Brings Beach Vibes and Sea Breeze to Ratchaprasong

Ah, beach bars - fine white sands on your feet, vast blue ocean right in front of you, and tall coconut trees swaying in the distance. What’s not to love, right? If you’ve ever been to Koh Samet in Rayong, try and remember your time there. Most likely, it involves enjoying delicious meals, ice-cold drinks, and uber-chill tunes.

That’s the experience SeaMet Bar is bringing to downtown Bangkok in Chidlom.

Although it sits in a boutique mall, Erawan Bangkok, this bar & restaurant doesn’t give up an inch of its laid-back moods. Embracing its ‘beach bar’ setting, SeaMet Bar is a great hangout where everyone can expect an easy-breezy time.

Walking into the bar, the first thing you’ll notice is the blue color scheme. This is to bring you closer to the sea, so to speak. The walls, wooden bar counter, LED lights, decor, and even the logo are splashed in azure.

On the floor are portions of beige paints, which makes you feel as if you’ve stepped onto a beach. Plus, faux coconut trees and greeneries really bring the lush and relaxing ambiance together.

SeaMet Bar is decked out with iconic sea-themed knickknacks, including white fishnets full of seashells on the ceiling, netted hammocks, lifebuoys, and bamboo lamps. Also, the rattan furniture gives the bar a casual and cozy ambiance that’s oh-so-inviting.

If fire shows are a staple of Koh Samet, then live music serves as the main course at SeaMet Bar. The playlist covers easy-listening, pop, R&B, and more, depending on the type of patrons walking through the doors. The bands play Thai and international tracks with hits from the ‘70s all the way to the latest.

SeaMet Bar books live bands every night between 19.00 - 20.30. However, you’ll get double the fun on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights; DJs will be spinning energetic sets after the bands left the stage. You can dance and enjoy the beat until midnight.

Other than the great music, things that can spice up your night at SeaMet are the food & drinks. The venue offers both alcoholic (beers, whiskeys, brandies, vodkas, tequilas, rums, gins, cocktails) and non-alcoholic (mocktails, juices, and soft drinks) options.

First on the highlight cocktail list is SeaMet Ice Ball (279 THB) - rhubarb gin, ginger, lychee liqueur & syrup, passion fruit juice, and lime juice. The lowball glass comes garnished with a piece of orange peel and a cherry on top. Sweet and sour, the drink shines through with its fruity lychee notes.

Another must-try item is Rose on the beach (279 THB) - raspberry gin, rose syrup, bitters, plus egg white for a velvety mouthfeel. The cocktail looks pretty in pink and is garnished with orange peel. It’s sweet and smooth on the tongue with none of the gin’s bitterness.

The savory menu is mostly seafood - international dishes infused with Thai hot and bold flavors.

SeaMet Bar serves one-dish meals, snacks, and shared dishes. Items include Prawns potted with vermicelli, Fried snapper with fish sauce, Hickory charcoal-grilled scallops and New Zealand mussels, SeaMet shrimp tempura, Seafood vermicelli spicy salad, and Stir-fried squid with Thai chili paste. Prices start at 149 THB.

As for the top picks, SeaMet Bar recommends Hickory charcoal-grilled river prawns (599 THB). The woody aroma and smokiness of hickory charcoal strike a delicious balance when paired with the bar’s original seafood dip.

Nang Phaya Scallops (429 THB) - steamed jumbo-sized scallops topped with vermicelli in chili and garlic sauce. Naturally sweet and scrumptious, the dish isn’t too hot to handle even if you don’t like spicy food.

Last but not least is Fried prawns with dried chilies, garlic & salt (269 THB). It’s SeaMet’s original spin on a Thai seafood classic - fried prawns tossed with salt & dried chilies. Fiery, flavorful, yet not overwhelming, it’s definitely a must-try.

All prices are inclusive of all taxes and service charges.

All things considered, SeaMet Bar is a downtown hangout that’s great all-round, whether it’s the atmosphere, food, drinks, and entertainment. It’s an excellent place to meet up with friends, families, or even a special someone.

If you’re looking for a new venue around Siam and Chidlom to celebrate the night, you should absolutely check this place out. Who knows, maybe the breezy beach vibes will keep you coming back for more (and more)!
