Asia's 8th best bar is popping up in Bangkok this week
Fancy a night (or two) with Singapore's Diageo World Class winner?
Jigger and Pony from Singapore will take over the bar at Thonglor's Backstage Bar this Aug 9 and Silom's Vesper this Aug 10.
The cocktail bar, which recently ranked No. 8 in the inaugural Asia's 50 Best Bars 2016 list, is helmed by 24-year-old Boo Jing Heng, who was named Singapore’s top bartender at the Diageo World Class Southeast Asia competition held in Bali this year.
But before he jets off to compete against the rest of the world in Miami this September, Boo will drop by Bangkok to serve up cocktails like A Lovely Affair, which combines his home country's famous flavors such as red bean, coconut cream and pandan with Japanese sake, and Song Of The Sea, which turns a simple drink like gin and tonic into a martini—beware!
Boo wil be joined by Jigger and Pony co-founder Indra Kantono and bartender Yishu Long. Reservations for both nights are recommended.
