The Living Room at the Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit Hotel has been regarded as the place to go for live jazz in Bangkok for some years now.

A sweeping bar replete with jazz memorabilia leads to a spacious, tastefully decorated lounge with comfortable sofa and armchair seating.

Besides offering a variety of nibbles to accompany your favourite tipple, The Living Room provides a very extensive menu, including items from the highly regarded Basil and Rossinis restaurants,which sit right next door. Enjoy dishes such as Tostada Con Champinones Al Ajillo, Grilled Asparagus with Cured Ham, Shaved Manchego and Egg Salsa, Grilled Chilli and Garlic Prawns with Sauce Romesco, Warm Tortilla Pocket filled with Chicken and Melted Cheese served with Tomato Salsa and Chilli Lime Cream, to name just a few.

New Destination for Innovative Sushi Creations in Bangkok
Words and photos courtesy of VIE Hotel Bangkok VIE Hotel Bangkok, a Member of the MGallery Collection, has officially opened its latest trendy Japanese restaurant YTSB (the official abbreviation for Yellow Tail Sushi Bar) with a Yellow Tail fish logo and has introduced the Japanese Master Chef Yoji Kitayama who promises that his new home in Bangkok will serve Freshness In Style to satisfy his customers. YTSB is located on the third and fourth floors of the VIE 39 building in front of the VIE Hotel Bangkok with a choice of indoor seating, for 50, or refreshing seating in the open air terrace. This new cutting edge Japanese venue proudly serves the freshest sushi and sashimi, in larger portions, including an array of authentic Japanese specialties. My fish selections are imported three times a week. They dont come dead as that is never fresh to me. We pay a higher price to get experts to handle this for us. Ingredients are also imported and my kitchen welcomes only premium produce. says Chef Yoji. YTSB honours the traditions of Japanese culinary art by upholding the principles of high quality and the freshest fish for exacting sushi standards, complemented by a wide range of top sakes, including some rarely found brands. The interior is tastefully chic, peppered with Japanese elements given a contemporary twist with an inviting atmosphere.

According to a recent paper on Thoughts about the Future of Advertising, the question is not will advertising continue to be an important tool of communication for business but simply, what forms will advertising take in the future?
