BANGKOK BAR

UNCLE x 72 Courtyard

Possibly the cheapest list of classics-with-twist cocktails in town. 

Some consider the guys behind UNCLE (Sathorn Soi 12) as the makers of the very best cocktails in town. Well, they're now in Thonglor at 72 Courtyard, too, and the prices are downright cheap compared to the rest of the scene.

Just as with the Sathorn location, the new branch is situated above Lady Brett and Rocket (all three belong to the Sapparot Group), only this time the space is much bigger, decked out with a huge dark marble bar, big leather couches and bold blue walls. A sizable outdoor terrace offers some alfresco seating, while private egg chairs sit round the corner for a more intimate choice. Or pull up a stool at the bar to see the guys in action.

Sapparot group head mixologist Philip Stefanescu created the drinks list, and we're prepared to call it the cheapest list of classics-with-twists in town. The spirit selection sticks pretty much to the same bottles you find over at Sathorn, with the focus more on home-infusions and homemade ingredients rather than pricey spirits.

Try The Big Red (B195), which mixes Iron Balls gin with fresh watermelon, Campari, lemon and homemade cinnamon syrup. The Manhattan Latino (B195) adds a twist to the classic Manhattan by basing it on rum, to which is added Mancino Rosso, cocoa and bitters—very easy going. The Wild Southeast (B195) is a surprisingly refreshing bourbon-based drink featuring pineapple-infused Wild Turkey bourbon mixed with Mancino Rosso vermouth and Mancino Bianco vermouth.
