May is here! While it seems we’ve finally made it past the roaring near-40°C heat of April, we’re still undeniably in the midst of summer. Thankfully, there’s a lot of refreshing things happening in the drink and dine scene to keep us cool and gastronomically fulfilled, from new summer menus to bar openings. The month is also proving to be surprisingly plenty in holidays, meaning there’s ample time to go out and enjoy what the city has to offer.

Among the options Bangkok has in store this May, we see menu developments at Beer Belly, along with a whole new summer-inspired menu at 80/20. Shangri-La Bangkok celebrates the traditional Dragon Boat Festival with a special offer, while fluffy pancakes prove they’re here to stay, and Rosewood Bangkok announces the opening of a new retro-themed speakeasy bar. There’s enough going on to get our mouths watering — scroll to see where you’ll be drinking and dining this May!
