4. Myst Rooftop Bar
Let yourself be tempted by a “Rainbow Bomb”, a “Super Lamborghini” or other eccentrics cocktail from the Maya Lifestyle Shopping Center. The Myst, a molecular bar with recognisable architecture, originally opened in Bangkok, moved to Chiang Mai not long ago, but quickly became a must see. Its wide selection of snacks and multicoloured misty liquid nitrogen drinks can only surprise you. The atmosphere rises in crescendo with live concerts followed by DJ mix for the night birds…
