Ever felt so sleepy in a bar that you dreamed of a bed to lay down on? At Bed Bar, it’s a reality. It’s a hutong bar with a difference.
Along with the regulation courtyard and beat-up furniture are actual beds within the interconnected rooms. The trappings are cushions instead of pillows and duvets, but it’s still plenty comfortable enough to get some shut-eye.
If you don’t feel like sleeping, there’s a small area for dancing, along with outdoor courtyard space, table seating, and a menu of cocktails to work your way through. Snacks come in the form of Asian tapas.
