Posh and whimsical nightspot The Iron Fairies Soi 39 celebrates its return with a Grand Opening party Friday in its new Phrom Phong location.
The acclaimed Thonglor bar, created by famed nightlife designer Ashley Sutton, now is located on Sukhumvit Soi 39. The latest iteration of the fairy tale-themed venue reopened March 17 after moving and a previous closure during the pandemic.
Iron Fairies Soi 39 is whimsical and enchanting with unique decor and atmosphere featuring storybook elements like giant iron fairies that hang from the ceiling, magic mushrooms – not the kind you eat – and twinkling lights.
The decor combines industrial and the imaginary, such as a large iron tree in the center of the room, and various fairy-themed decorations. The atmosphere is cozy and inviting, and the staff are friendly and helpful.
Iron Fairies Soi 39 is close to the BTS Phrom Phong station and is is bigger than it was in Thonglor. The pub features a larger bar area, giant dance floor and a new outdoor terrace.
Food also plays a prominent role in the new Iron Fairies Soi 39 as the latest version is part of the reincarnated L’Opera – Bangkok’s first Italian restaurant that closed but later was reborn as Rossano’s Italian Trattoria – offering gelato and fine dining.
Also notable is that the Australian Sutton is no longer involved with Iron Fairies Soi 39, although he continues to open Iron Fairies franchises around Southeast Asia. Sutton also was the brain and artistry behind Maggie Choo’s, Sing Sing Theater, J. Boroski, and Fat Gutz.
But word is he and Iron Fairies Soi 39’s other partners had a bad break and the Aussie was kicked out.
