What people say

"From its humble beginning in 1953, The Bamboo Bar has grown in status and reputation to become a beloved Bangkok institution frequented by jazz lovers from around the world. For five consecutive years, and again in 2022, The Bamboo Bar was announced as one of Asia’s 50 Best Bars. This iconic spot was Bangkok's first jazz venue and retains a sensual, 1950s ambience. Drinks and cocktails are crafted by Mandarin Oriental’s award-winning mixologist team, including their newly-launched 'The Elements' cocktail menu which draws inspiration from Thailand’s five landscapes. Live bands and renowned singers perform from Monday - Saturday from 9 to 11:45pm. After 6:30pm, guests are kindly asked to wear elegant attire and proper footwear, while gentlemen are requested to wear long trousers and closed shoes. Remarks: Always popular, The Bamboo Bar is unable to accept reservations. Guests under the age of 20 are welcome inside The Bamboo Bar before 7:30pm and after this time may join an adult on the outside terrace area, upon availability."
