BKK: Bangkok Louis Tavern Lounge Concourse F
The Bangkok Louis Tavern lounge in Concourse F is incredibly pedestrian, not to say dull, and it is also very small - in effect just a small room. As you enter through reception the staff are on your right, and they can be a little curt, to say it politely.
And then you see - one rack of armchairs in the middle of the lounge. There are some smaller more upright chairs to your left. Dining chairs are by the window. And there is a small alcove with the food and bar. And that's it.
There are 3 Louis Tavern lounges at Bangkok - so are you sure you want to use this one? Indeed, are you sure you want to use the Louis Tavern Lounges at all? On a oneworld airline in Business or with the right Frequent Flyer card you should have access to the excellent Cathay Pacific lounge just around the corner.
FoodFood in the Bangkok Louis Tavern lounge Concourse F can best be described as basic.
There are three hot containers down the centre of the alcove. At breakfast time, these have egg and chicken sausage plus beans. At other times they have 2 Asian dishes with prawn and chicken, plus noodles and rice. There is also hot soup if you are lucky. If you are unlucky it is the potato soup.
Other than that there is a heated cabinet, with puff pasty sausages and mushrooms (I kid you not) and cellophane wrapped sandwiches - cheese, or vegetarian. Yep, there is a difference. There is also fruit and cakes.
BarThe bar in the Bangkok Louis Tavern lounge Concourse F is also pretty basic. There are two wines - both Australia - and Singha beer in the fridge. However the array of spirits is the one bright point, with vast numbers. Just look at them - no less than 15 bottles.
There is everything from Smirnoff to Bacardi, Beefeater gin, Red label, Jim Beam, and Heering. Plus a load of not-really-sure obscure duty free spirits.
BathroomsNone. Go outside the door.
There is free Wi-Fi access is also available throughout the Louis Tavern Bangkok lounge - Wifi comes from the airports own supply.
There are no newspapers or magazines, other than Thai newspapers left by their owners in despair.
AccessYou can buy access on the door for 1,200THB, but it is marginally cheaper if you buy access beforehand online, at 1000THB. This works out to around 20 quid, so make sure you really want to use the lounge!
Finnair and some other carriers hand out a card to invite you to this lounge - note that the invite is valid to ANY Louis Tavern lounge, but Finnair for example will always circle this one, and tell you to head here as it is closest to their gate. This is pointless, as there are much better lounges.
Note that the main Louis Tavern lounge is on Concourse G on Level 4 (West Side), opposite Gate G2. It is a two-level lounge.
There is also the Louis Tavern lounge on Level 3 (West Side), opposite Gate G2. And finally there is this, the tiny micro lounge in Concourse F level 3.
The largest Louis Tavern is on Concourse G on Level 4 with Business Class downstairs and First upstairs, which is much more spacious but noisy, tight and filled with passengers and just as spartan. Note that CIP stands for Commercially Important Passenger. This lounge makes it clear, you are not one of those.
