Kosmo bar & bistro is an upscale restaurant located in the W District complex, less than ten minutes walk from Prakhanong BTS Station. It has one of the best collections of Belgian beers in Bangkok.
To reach the W District complex, travel to Phra Khanong BTS Station. Exiting that station, use Exit 3. At the bottom of the stairs, double back 180 degrees to your right, cross Sukhumvit Soi 69, and continue walking 250 meters until you come to the W District, with Tom Tom’s Coffee right off the sidewalk . Stay on the sidewalk, and continue walking – go past the pedestrian overpass that crosses Sukhumvit Road, to your right. 20 meters farther on, you will pass a fountain on your left, and you will then come to the second roadway that enters the W District complex. Turn left at this second road. This is what you will see:
Continue straight down the road that passes to the right of U-691 – about 150 meters. That road terminates dirctly in front of Kosmo bar & bistro.
Newly opened in 2017, the restaurant has two entrances – a main entrance with patio that faces the street that you have just walked down, and another entrance that faces the W District beer-garden courtyard, on the other side of the building.
The main entrance:
The main interior room:
The main dining room has ten tables that seat four persons each, three tables that seat three persons, and two two-person tables.
There were also 13 seats at the bar:

They have the correct branded serving glass or mug for every Belgian beer.
Although I stuck with beer, this bar apparently specializes in cocktails. They evidently also serve the typical assortment of Thai mass-market beers – although I saw no visible evidence of that.
Service was attentive – the staff here is well-trained. The food and beverage manager during my visit was “Max,” from Italy.
This is primarily a restaurant, and they have an extensive menu. Their signature dish is evidently their half of a chicken, which are roasted on a rotisserie that is outside the entrance-way in from the W District’s beergarden courtyard. I had it – it was quite good.
There is no video screen here. When I visited, early evening, they were playing recent pop music at moderate level. Evidently, they have a nightly DJ performing, later in the evening – they have a quite sophisticated DJ station:
Outside the main entrance is a covered patio, with seating for about 40 guests. mostly at two-person tables (but they can be moved together, to accommodate a larger group).
Smoking is permitted only in outside seating.
There is parking on-site at the W District.
Toilets are located down a short passageway that is located directly to your left as you enter the main (street-side) entrance to the bar. Separate men’s and women’s toilets – roomy, spotless.
The staff at this restaurant are well-trained.
