Information and Articles about Gay venue : Glass Onion

Below you will find information about Glass Onion bar with links to articles, photos and events tagged Glass Onion

The Glass Onion was a real trend setter in Chiang Mai, being the first of a new breed of up market wine and cocktail style bars squarely aimed at more affluent ex-pats. Far from the typical outdoor beer bar, that was the standard for most venues in Chiang Mai back then, Glass Onion was a modern classy joint, with comfortable furnishings done with style. Fully glass fronted and air-conditioned the bar included an indoor waterfall on one wall, a grand piano, and a long bar backed with an ample stock of wines and spirits.

The owner Kris, now sadly deceased, was a gay Korean American and best described as quite a character. He named the Glass Onion after a previous bar he had in the U.S

The bar was managed by handsome bartenders, immaculately groomed and with excellent English skills. Along the bar, instead of bar stools, there were reclining arm chairs and it was here that Kris held court with a regular band of those who thought of themselves as Chiang Mai’s good and great.
