BKK Social Club
- No.14 The World's 50 Best Bars 2022
- The World's 50 Best Bars Best New Opening Award 2022
Helmed by industry veteran Philip Bischoff, formerly of Manhattan in Singapore and Charles H in Seoul, BKK Social Club has quickly become the one of the hottest spots in Bangkok for cocktails. Emulating the bars of the 1970s and 80s in Buenos Aires, old-school luxury is a priority here, with ceilings adorned with cascading chandeliers and grand horticultural displays. It isn’t all show and no go, though. Utilising his decades’ experience, Bischoff has crafted a menu that matches its South American décor. The Tigre – a blend of pisco, Yerba Mate tea, pineapple, passionfruit, sugar, lemon, spices and milk – is an homage to the expansive larder of South America. The bartenders, decorated in pristine white jackets, are masters of service, repeatedly crafting a list of signature cocktails with profound consistency. Also housing one of the city’s finest collections of American whiskeys, amaros and vermouths, BKK can tackle any cocktail request, while also running a fine selection of pre-bottled serves. A glorious cigar terrace is an added boon that adds to the theatre.
