The newly opened restaurant by the masterminds behind Rabbit Hole, Canvas, is making Bangkok foodies go all doe-eyed with its kitchen. But upstairs you'll also find a new bar from what have always been one of Bangkok's most reliable cocktail teams.

Head bartender Naphat “Yod” Natchachon keeps standards on a par with Rabit Hole while complementing the local flavor focus of the restaurant downstairs. 

Sooth Your Soul utilizes a rare Chiang Mai leaf called bai nium which our grandparents used to burn and eat it with Hong Thong Rum back in the day. Here they infuse the leaves with coffee beans in cognac, mix that spirit with sweet vermouth then serve it with star anise smoke—worth all of its B450 and like nothing we've tasted before. 

Tropical botanicals also star in the Canvas Martini (B450). Rabbit Hole is well-known for their martini drinks, and here they keep up that reputation with a mix of gin, alovera vinegar dry vermouth, ylang-ylang flowers, black olive and coriander flower. Served ice cold in a copper martini glass, the flavor is very floral, largely thanks to the coriander flower.
 
 
The Breakfast Martini (B350) lightens the usually spirit-heavy martini with a hit of citrus juice, orange marmalade and dry Curacao, while Thai saffron-infused gin keeps up the floral theme. 
 
 
Canvas, 113/9-10 Sukhumvit Soi 55 (Thonglor), 099-614-1158. Open Tue-Thu 6pm-midnight; Fri-Sat 6-12:30pm
