15. Havana Social

Sukhumvit Soi 11's "hidden" Cuban haunt still knows how to party. 


14. J. Boroski Mixology

The secret bar with no menu and no official address continues to capture the imagination. Is it worth the effort? We'll leave that to you to decide. 



13. Rewind Bar

Apparently just what Thonglor needed: a '90s-loving, back-to-basics bar with free popcorn. 



12. Iron Balls (Phrom Phong)

Ashley Sutton’s back! He of Iron Fairies fame opened a second branch of his gin distillery and Bangkok exploded with joy. 



11. Find The Locker Room

New location, same meticulous attention to detail. B.A.D. Awards 2017’s Best Cocktail Bar was forced to move digs barely six months after its much-hyped opening, but still proved must-visit for cocktail aficionados. 



10. Tep Bar

Still one of Soi Nana's most popular bars thanks to its live classical music, potent ya dong, and location amid Chinatown's beautiful crumbling walls. 



9. Let The Boy Die

After a nearly-two-year absence from the scene, one of Thailand’s pioneering craft beer bars was reborn with more beer, more food and all of the old charm



8. Aire Bar

Twenty-eighth-floor views of Benjasiri Park and sub-B300 cocktails—what more could you want?



7. Rabbit Hole

The Thonglor speakeasy which lurks behind a non-descript wooden door has been the scene for a many a big night.  



6. The Bar Upstairs

Who says Soi 11 can't do classy? Be transported to a secret French jardin at this tucked-away enclave. 



5. Cactus

They don't come more hyped than this leafy chilled-out cocktail bar bringing a taste of California to Yen Akat.



4. Teens of Thailand

Our 2017 B.A.D. Bar of the Year, this Chinatown bolthole is still the place to go for gin—if you can manage to claim a seat. 



3. A Bar

Dividing a beautiful space overlooking Benjasiri Park into two floors and two bars, one with a focus on dark spirits, one specializing in gin. Both are well worth your time.



2. Escape Bangkok

Swanky EmQuartier dedicates some fifth-floor, mall-top space to a venue that’s part tapas bar, part tiki bar and wholly committed to its “downtown beach club” theme.



1. Find The Photo Booth

 The team that brought us The Locker Room returned with another hard-to-find speakeasy, this time with the bonus of a real-deal photo booth just begging for a few too many drunken selfies.
