Rubbernecking the Sunglasses Set in Bangkok, Thailand
You can’t help but rubberneck when you first walk in. It's clear—from the ice-white hues of the Cy'an restaurant to the wine-dark depths of the members-only Met bar—that The Metropolitan is where you go to get noticed. This exclusive designer retreat attracts a very discerning brand of guest—fashionistas, film stars, designers and well-heeled, sharp-dressed urbanites ornament the bright, makha-wooded lobby. Sister to its London namesake, this understated outpost exerts a gravitational pull on the champagne and sunglasses set, most likely because of its single-minded devotion to style. It's as though this Bangkok boutique hotel has been constructed just to house the most sophisticated party in the city. And, guess what—you are invited.
