Just wondering if anyone knows if economy passengers can have a drink in the first class bar on board the plane? (im willing to pay!)
Also, are economy passengers allowed to just look around at the first class amenities like showers, etc? But obviously not take part in those amenities!

Thanks!

At the end of the flight you might be able to take a quick look around when the plane unloads.

Before / During Flight NO

Not that I ever witnessed that. First Class is sheltered, curtains drawn, and you can't even use their restroom. They don't want to rub their elbows with the "common folk".
It might be possible if you had a friend flying First Class, but other than that, pretty much - NO.
You can order a drink, of course, but they will bring it to your seat...

All hard drinks are available to purchase now. No freebies of such goodies

First Class don't pay for them, but Economy and Economy Plus has to pay for alcoholic drinks.
First Class eats on China, drinks from glass, has a gourmet menu and is pampered. It's all in their high $$$ ticket included...

Not long ago I used to get free wine with my dinner (Air France) and there was a free snack/soft drink buffet by the galley, but that's also is just a fond memory...
