Default [BKK] New SKL opposite gate D8

This place opened last week and it is pretty impressive to be fair and a big improvement on the old place.

Its got the new out station SKL favourite pods on the left as you walk in, a sizeable bar in the middle with staff serving drinks, more food options from a central area after the bar, a new dining area similar to Changi lounges and one large single table to the left of the bar.

The capacity is clearly larger but the problem that will bring is the large numbers of TG pax who don't want to use their crappy JCL lounges.

Handy location as well much closer to SQ usual D gates. For those who are familiar with it the area it's close to the JL Lounge.

I'm passing through BKK tomorrow and it was/is my plan to give SKL a try given its central location. I was fortunate last Sunday my TG flight left from gate F1 so I managed the EVA lounge directly upstairs and overlooking there and it, too, is miles better than those crappy, dirty, sticky, poorly maintained TG lounges.

I do agree with you, my worry is that it will take those knowing TG passengers away from TGs own lounges and become the busiest in the place for now.

I was there last Sunday and was not impressed. It's one big hall with some design elements of the new lounge concept. The place was overcrowded and the food offering all raided. The whole place looked messy.

They were out of Cranberry juice, didn't have any sparkeling wine and chicken and coconuts were only refilled after I asked twice.

Just visited this lounge. I was quite impressed. Agree with MAN Flyer that this is a big improvement over the previous BKK lounge. One of the better outstation SQ lounges. TR soon...

I was in there last month and I thought it was pretty awful. The food was dire, even the Thai food was poor. I lived in Bangkok for 3 years and never had duff food then, or in all my visits, until the dreadful massaman curry in that lounge. The old one was way better.

Personally prefer the new lounge to the old one. Much bigger and more spacious, compared to the previous one which seemed so crammed up. Also love the cocktail bar where I can get some drinks before boarding. Foodwise, I thought it was ok. The local food section which I tried before: Mee Siam, chicken rice and Laksa (IIRC), were all pretty decent.

I agree with PPSFlyer and quite enjoyed the lounge the last time I was there earlier this year. The tendered bar is certainly a nice element and I wish all lounges would feature it. He mad some great cocktails. The food was pretty good too.

The bar tender used to be from TG FCL...... instantly recognises me when I went in and greeted with a wai .... then told his mate... "he's from the FCL"...
