Why do people love going to bars? Bar-going is definitely a way for people to wind down, let off steam, and enjoy good company. But what makes bars distinctively attractive in comparison to drinking from the comfort of your home? Well, it’s the vibe that the bars offer. Yes, contrary to popular beliefs, it’s not only about loud music or rowdy patrons. Bars provide a unique ambience that exudes both fun and relaxation. Let us do the honour and provide you with the Top 5 unique bars in Bangkok.

1. Havana Social

Havana Social, the not-so-secret secret bar due to its popularity, is first on our list of unique bars. This popular pub is hidden behind a phone booth in a back alley in one of Bangkok’s hottest nightlife districts. Travel back in time to a pre-revolutionary Cuban speakeasy in the early 1950s and explore it in all of its once-swanky glory. Put on one of the Panama hats available at the entry to really immerse yourself in the environment.

Expert bartenders specially blend a wide range of drinks to give you the feel of pre-and post-revolution Cuba. Order delicious Cubano Sandwich or Beef Empanada if you’re famished; they are a great addition to your drink! Ladies, watch out for Thursdays. Mark your calendars because Thursdays are Vivas las Chicas Ladies Night at Havana Social where you can enjoy Cuba Libres & Mojitos for just 200 THB net!

Opening hours: 5 PM – 11 PM⁣

Address: 41, 3 Sukhumvit Rd, Khlong Toei Nuea, Watthana, Bangkok 10110

2. Rabbit Hole

Rabbit Hole, a speakeasy famed for its distinct atmosphere, is hidden behind a wooden door, unseen by passersby. Open the door and fall (not literally) into the Rabbit Hole, where the quaint and delightful atmosphere will overwhelm you. The three-story structure provides enough space for a private gathering with your pals. So don’t be concerned about having to squeeze your way to your table.

Order beverages from a large menu, each of which is crafted with technical twists with the magic of veteran bartenders. If you can’t make up your mind, take the bar’s golden advice. “Let the emotions and mind lead the way,” it simply says.

Opening hours: 7 PM – 2 AM

Address: 125, Thong Lo Rd, Klongton Nuea, Watthana, Bangkok 10110

3. 100-bit Barcade

Are you a fan of retro video games from the 1980s and 1990s? Take a trip down memory lane with a night at 100-bit Barcade. The Barcade, being the town’s first barcade (‘bar’ +’arcade’), prides itself on being a temple to retro culture, with 80s hip-hop music, a plethora of retro games, excellent food, and karaoke. You can’t really go wrong with this combo.

The bar oozes good times and fun. ‘Sip, Play, and Repeat,’ is the barcade’s motto. How does this sound to you?

Opening hours: 4 PM – 11 PM

Address: 831, Charoen Krung 31 Alley, Talat Noi, Samphanthawong Bangkok, Thailand 10100

4. Honest Mistake

‘Honest Mistake,’ a pub with a backstory, is next on our list of unique bars. The bar themed as a gambling ground disguised as a pawn shop, from 1930-1940 China. Historically, during World War II, people had to rely on corruption to get by, where wrong-acts eventually became an ‘honest mistake’.

Enter the bar by trading money for a key to the sacred bar at the pawnshop counter. What’s more, every part of the bar contains stories with faults arranged in a playful manner, so feel free to wander around! The pub is known for its delectable cocktails, which are expertly blended with various types of alcohol from across the world.

Opening hours: 7 PM

Address: 488, Phahonyothin Rd, Samsen Nai, Phaya Thai, Bangkok 10400

5. J. Boroski Bangkok

Joseph Boroski, the man behind several world’s cocktail menus, has created his own hidden bar in Bangkok. What’s the bigger catch, though? There is no menu at the bar! The bartender a.k.a. the expert mixologist will handcraft your drink according to your preferences and tastes. The drink is specially made for you and noone else.

What’s more, the inside is breathtaking and visually gorgeous. J. Boroski is a treat to your eyes, designed by Ashley Sutton, a well-known interior designer recognized for his magical wonderlands. Enjoy ‘your’ cocktail, swing to the music, chat with your friends and unwind from a tense day at J. Boroski.

Opening hours: 6:30 PM – 12:00 AM

Address: 16, 125/13 Thong Lo Rd, Khwaeng Khlong Tan Nuea, Khet Watthana, Bangkok 10110
