With three Noble high-rises within a 500m radius, Ari is definitely a hangout fit for the hip and hiso young Bangkokian. And as most trends go where the hisos go, Specialty Coffee is definitely a part of landscape here. Stepping away from the bustle of Soi Ari, Aran Bicicletta is a trendy hideout catering to a similar crowd, hidden in the peace and quiet of Pahon Yothin Soi 2.
Part bike shop, part cafe, Aran Bici is so named after owner and bike lover, Aran. The shop seems to operate mainly as a workshop for high-end custom bicycles, but due to a family connection with local coffee heavyweights K2, coffee also flows in Aran’s veins and he’s created a great setup ready to deliver whatever your caffeine-lusting tastebuds desire.
Aran Bicicletta moved to their new location within the last year, and have created a fantastic light-filled outdoor space that you won’t want to leave. As afternoons turn to evenings coffee gives way to cocktails and a range of international cuisine courtesy of Barka, at the rear of the same building.
If you’re needing something a bit more cosy and low key from your usual Ari hangout, I recommend stopping by Aran Bicicletta for coffee, drinks or more!
