Stella, Capella Bangkok's signature bar, is all about giving off an excellent impression in every aspect, from its extravagant and glamorous art deco-inspired interiors to supremely-concocted cocktails inspired by female heroines in Thai, Indian, Japanese and Chinese histories. 

What could possibly be the most unforgettable experience at Stella is the "dessert omakase" (B2,500/B3,500 with cocktail pairing)—the very first of its kind in Bangkok—through which executive pastry chef Sylvain Constans, whose talent is well-seasoned by years of working at renowned establishments such as The Dorchester in London, Dior des Lices in Saint-Tropez and Beige Alain Ducasse Tokyo, churns out amazingly-crafted confections you've probably never had or seen elsewhere. All your experience at this supremely swanky bar is perfected by beverage manager William Pravada and head barkeep Pranisa "Nisa" Treechanasin.
