Tropic City

This bar has been truly flying up the list, now taking its place at No.22 after only entering the list in 2019 and opening in 2017. A true oasis within Bangkok’s up-and-coming Charoenkrung neighbourhood, this cool joint reinterprets ‘tropical’ in its widest sense, with inspiration coming from Southeast Asia, the Caribbean and even the South Pacific, with a strong focus on rum. It attracts a young crowd that feels at home among colourful Portuguese azulejo tiles and flower motifs. Even though the décor feels footloose and fancy-free, the drinks are taken very seriously indeed, featuring fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices and advanced techniques such as fat-washing and clarification. Signatures include Welcome To The Jungle, Chronic Iced Tea and Trippic Thunder.
