The latest venture of multi-award-winning bartender Ronnaporn ‘Neung’ Kanivichaporn and co-founder Chennarong ‘Jan’ Bhumichitr, Mahaniyom focuses on ‘resourceful cocktails’. The team chooses an ingredient and then proceeds to extract as much flavour and use as much of the chosen item as possible for the drinks. For Pomelo, the juice, fruit, skin, even pith of the citrus make their way into the finished beverage. Sitting above the hip nose-to-tail eatery 100 Mahaseth has its advantages: the restaurant not only provides steady footfall but also some interesting ingredients such as beef tallow for their upstairs neighbour’s cocktails (try the Cow if you appreciate a savoury beverage). What does the name mean? ‘Very popular’, is the answer. And with its clever and delicious cocktail menu, fun and colourful decor (don’t miss a selfie with the neon two headed tiger!) as well as the warmest hospitality, Mahaniyom should be at the top of your list when visiting Bangkok.
