Fresh off being named to Asia’s 50 Best Bars
list this year, announced at the annual award show’s (virtual) ceremony in May, three of Bangkok’s top cocktail haunts are popping up this month at a bar takeover in Ratchadamri.
The nightlife luminaries behind Backstage Bar
(no. 33), Tropic City
(no. 24) and Vesper
(no. 11) will get behind the sticks at Anantara Siam
’s Aqua Bar from 7-11pm for six nights only: Backstage from Jul 16-17
, Vesper from Jul 23-24
and Tropic City from Jul 30-31
The bar takeover promises signature drinks from all three, although you can no doubt go off-script and see what they have to offer. The event is co-sponsored by Diageo, too, so you can expect spirits from the distributor’s high-end “reserve” portfolio to appear in each bar’s drinks.
