With an increasingly expat focus, and a huge number of condos, Ari has become a very lively and trendy spot due to the variety of the boutique and chic restaurants popping up in recent years. Restaurants such as Salt and Casa Lapin have been making headlines as go-to-brunch spots, boosting the overall popularity of Ari. For people who want to shed a few pounds after indulging in a rather scrumptious meal, there is the Ari School of Fitness, or the Ari Cross fit Box, which is located inside Ari soi 3. Villa Market Complex is also conveniently located at exit/ entrance of the BTS. The 3-story mall has everything a family would need, from a supermarket to beauty clinics.
