James Bond would approve of this suave Bangkok destination, which takes its name from the secret agent's latterly choice of martini. The creation of Choti and Debby Leenutaphong, who took inspiration from martini-led London bars such as Dukes in Mayfair, Vesper has evolved since opening in 2014 with barrel-aged interpretations of classic cocktails, plus mixes inspired by modern art. The latest menu plays on the concept of contrasts, including cocktails such as Dirty & Clean, Deep & Shallow and Thai-Tai – the latter featuring Thai spices and herbs, ginger, citrus, lychee, egg white and Ketel One. The ‘Hall of Fame’ section of the menu still holds the classics, including the Silver Vesper and Flower Carrier.
