Located in the city’s newest Four Seasons Hotel on the Chao Phraya River, this stunning venue combines the glamour of Buenos Aires with the vibrancy of Bangkok. Every detail has been carefully considered, from the striking back bar to the gorgeous green velvet banquettes, from the tropical foliage to the low lighting: one feels almost as if on a movie set. And that’s before we even get to the cocktail menu masterfully curated by veteran Philip Bischoff and his talented team.
Reflecting its South American decor, the drinks use ingredients such as Yerba Mate, Apple Guava (try the Jardin) and are inspired by personalities such as Maradona, of soccer’s Hand of God fame, or the first lady of Argentina herself, Evita. The bar’s emphasis on conviviality is clear from the moment you walk in the door and the hospitality is en pointe. There is a cigar lounge for enthusiasts, quite a collection of grower champagnes for fans of bubbles and if you want to take a bit of BKK Social Club with you, check out their excellent playlist on Spotify. As the highest placed bar in its continent, BKK Social Club is for the first time named The Best Bar in Asia.
