Returning in January.
Good news for those who miss sundowners on Hemingway’s breezy terrace: the bar-restaurant is about to make a comeback—and parts of the teak house are coming along with it.
General Manager Damian Mackay says the team is painstakingly building a replica of their beloved venue that used to sit beside BTS Asoke, featuring parts reclaimed from the demolition.
They're said to be recreating the lush garden, the original portico and bar area and two-story wood-clad set-up with balcony, right down to the same floor tiles, which were discontinued but have been sourced from Spain—now that’s dedication.
Set to open in January 2019, the renamed Hemingway Garden Bar & Bistro will sit smack bang in the middle of Soi 11, promising to bring the old after work-slash-all-day drinking spot formerly Zak’s roaring back to life.
Hemingway is just one of the reasons we're starting to think Sukhumvit Soi 11's shady days could be over.
From early 2013 to its closing in late 2016, the old Hemingway's proved a hit especially with expats for its Western comfort food, outdoor seating and seemingly countless happy-hour promotions.
