What do you get when you combine the energy of Bangkok, the allure of the golden age of Buenos Aires, bespoke cocktails and a bar team led by one of the best in business? You get BKK Social Club. The newest kid on the block is a sophisticated one. Set in the gorgeous Four Seasons Chao Phraya, the venue’s stunning 4m-high back bar boasts an impressive collection of artisanal spirits (it also has some lovely grower champagnes available). The architect of the drinks programme, veteran Philip Bischoff, used the three Ps to develop the menu – ‘people in the right place equals a party’.
As its name suggests, socialising is a focal point and the South American-inspired cocktails (try the signature Evita) certainly help that along. There is even a full-service cigar lounge outside for those who are so inclined. In a very short time, BKK Social Club has become a must-visit venue for Bangkok and the rightful winner of the London Essence Best New Opening Award in 2022.
