Bar Guide Bangkok


10/15 Soi Convent Road, Bangkok, 10500

Vesper is the creation of Choti Leenutaphong and Debby Tang – Asian owners who fell in love with cocktail bars while living in Europe. Tang says inspiration came from bars such as London’s Duke’s – indeed it was there Tang had her first Vesper that would later be the name of her bar – and the first menu in 2014 was consulted by London duo Thomas Aske and Tristan Stephenson.

The latest menu has developed the drinks from playful visual affairs to more sophisticated house serves, as the Bangkok consumer evolves, and you’ll see barrel-aged iterations of classic cocktails Vieux Carre, Hanky Panky and Aviation too.

Refined, up-market in décor, with on-the-money, international drinks, this place is the bar Leenutaphong and Tang always wanted to drink in, and they’re not alone. It was voted by the trade as one of Asia’s 50 Best Bars 2016.
