Toast to a good cause!
This year will see Thailand’s 11th annual Negroni Week, celebrating both the classic cocktail and Campari, the Italian apéritif that is at the heart of any Negroni. In collaboration with Imbibe Magazine and global charity Slow Food, the 2023 celebrations will focus on those industry cornerstones who know exactly what goes into a solid Negroni: the bartenders.
“This year we continue supporting our global partners to raise funds, by toasting to the timeless bond between Campari and the Negroni, while bringing together the passion of bartenders who are at the forefront of cocktail culture,” said Michele Porta, Campari’s Global Channel and Customer Marketing Director.
In addition to nightly special bartender takeovers at various venues across the city, a nightly Negroni Week Bar Hop will also take place in Thonglor from Sep 18-24. Here’s how it works: your ticket will get you a complimentary Negroni Week drink at each of the seven participating venues (yes, that’s seven drinks total), as well as a Negroni Week t-shirt.
The confirmed bars are Bar Scofflaws, Midsummer Night’s Dream Bar, Gaze Cocktail Bar, Modern-Day Culture, Copper Bar, 008 Bar, and Pennant Thonglor. The bars will be serving both classic Negronis as well as their own unique variations. The best part is that 100 percent of the ticket sales will be donated to The Foundation for the Deaf under the Royal Patronage of Her Majesty the Queen.
Bar Hop tickets are priced at B1,500, and can be purchased via Campari’s official Line Account @campari. Your ticket can be used on any day of the week, but advanced reservations are required at each venue.
The Negroni Week Cruise represents another opportunity to simultaneously have a good time and donate, taking place on Sep 20 in collaboration with Anantara Riverside Bangkok Resort. For one night only, guests can enjoy a fine dining set menu—paired with classic Campari cocktails, of course—onboard a restored antique rice barge that’ll be cruising down the Chao Phraya River. Tickets are priced at B3,000, and include both dinner and free-flow drinks. As with the bar hop, all ticket sales will go to The Foundation for the Deaf under the Royal Patronage of Her Majesty the Queen.
Finally, if you’re more of a bruncher than a bar hopper, Negroni Week will close off with special weekend brunch promotions. On Saturday, a brunch menu featuring a Negroni Week drinks selection will be available at three different eateries: Mimosa Mediterranean Restaurant, Gigi - Dining Hall & Bar, and Contento. Also on Saturday, Giglio Trattoria Fiorentina will be offering free-flow drinks from their Negroni Week menu. Then, on Sunday, three restaurants located within hotels will be serving up special Negroni Week specials as part of their Sunday brunch buffets: Embassy Room (B2,900, Park Hyatt Bangkok), ALATi (B3,200, Siam Kempinski Bangkok), and Up & Above (B3,500, The Okura Prestige Bangkok).
