When the government banned the sale of alcohol inside bars and restaurants at the start of the year, the Vesper crew wasted no time changing tack. First, they rolled out “buy now, drink later” vouchers (e.g., buy B2,000, get B2,500). Then, the team announced that the bar would rebrand as Vesper Cafe from Jan 11, serving mocktails, fresh juice, premium tea, and coffee, as well as bar bites and mains made in collaboration with Foodie Collection venues Il Fumo, La Dotta, and 1919.

Open Mon-Sat from 11:30am-9pm, Vesper Cafe offers alcohol-free spins on Suppawit “Palm” Muttaratana’s “Contrast” cocktail menu, like I’m Not Angry, Honey (spicy honey, lemon, apple, cranberry, and egg white; B200) and Love Triangle (blended tea, pickled ginger, lime, and Nammon tonic; B200), plus coffee and tea mocktails (B150-180), main dishes like black truffle wagyu flank steak “katsu” (B340), and desserts like cognac and caramel flan (B190).

10/15 Soi Convent. RSVP at 02-235-2777 or email bar.foodiecollection@gmail.com
