Siam InterContinental Bangkok Naga cocktail bar and lounge

Title

Siam InterContinental Bangkok Naga cocktail bar and lounge

Description

For the hotel bar, the design team worked with local artisans to produce intricately carved wooden screens that acted as room dividers, with dragon-headed nagas (snakes) taken from temple architecture. Wall fabrics were chosen in rich jewel tones threaded with gold while carpets were patterned after the ornate exteriors of ceremonial Thai buildings. The hotel was in operation from 1966-2002.

Architecture by Joseph P. Salerno, AIA (1915-1981).
