50Best Accolades
  • No.11 Asia's 50 Best Bars 2021
  • The Best Bar in Thailand 2019 & 2021

With a heritage going back to the 1950s, this classy hotel bar in Bangkok’s Mandarin Oriental has a reputation as one of the best spots in the city to catch live jazz. It’s classy yet exotic atmosphere, with a decor featuring tiger-skin prints and bamboo furniture, is entirely in keeping with the music. The new ‘Compass’ cocktail menu – served by stylish bartenders in brown leather aprons – is inspired by Thailand’s five regions, all with their varying tastes and flavours. It follows an extensive renovation project in 2014 to refresh the bar while retaining its history. The Bamboo broke into the top ten of Asia’s 50 Best in 2019 and was also crowned as The Best Bar in Thailand.
