Shades Of Retro

BARCHICK SAYS

This place is one serious sensory overload. Sink into a soft 70s sofa, sip on an expertly mixed drink and get lost in this oasis of vintage junk. There’s a Vespa, a Hammond organ, retro records playing, old amps stacked in the corner and oddities like dancing tiki Barbie dolls.

The bartenders here know their stuff, and the menu, like the bar, is full of old classics. Choose from 20s-throwback, the Pisco Sour; or a BKK-take on an old favourite, The Passionfruit Julep; and don’t forget The Basil Sour, which packs a punch despite the delicacy of its infusion.

It’s a welcome retreat from the often-clinical minimalism of Bangkok’s more refined watering holes. Hidden down a small soi (side street, if you didn’t know), this bar is the haunt of in-the-know Thais - a perfect escape from Sukhumvit’s crowds. It’s hip, but equally understated and friendly.

Be warned though, most of the vintage clutter is for sale, so take advantage of the free popcorn before you get carried away with the cocktails and come home with some 1980s aviators and a copy of Jazz Life.
