Best Train-themed Bars in Bangkok
Run by the same team behind cult favorite Sugarray Bar in Ekkamai Soi 21, Q&A serves innovative cocktails within a setting reminiscent of a vintage train carriage. The bar is nestled inside a little alley on Sukhumvit Soi 21 with just a little sign above a green marble wall to give you a hint. Position yourself on the pretty caramel stools by the bar so you can chat with the gentlemen preparing your drink. The cocktails list rotates on a monthly basis, registering classics with a bit of a tweak. Have a go at the Pinkish, which gives a twist to the usual Negroni mix by using homemade rhubarb and grapefruit gin as the base spirit.
Featuring over 100 choices of finest handmade cigars from Cuban, Nicaraguan, Dominican, Brazilian, Honduran, Columbian, Ecuadorian and wide range selections of spirit, including fine and rare malt whisky, rum with limited standard commercial products - Character Whisky & Cigar Bar is totally a place you want to visit if you are a cigar connoisseur.
The decor is inspired by the Orient Express train in Europe with cozy, yet privacy vibe. Wooden furniture and leather armchairs, accompanying with dim light create pleasant ambience of the bar. There is a walk-in cigar humidor that is full of cigar, too.
You can buy premium quality cigars and spirits at their retail shop. Plus, they have membership plans like Churchill membership, Castro membership, and Kennedy membership which have different benefit discounts according to the membership levels.
Head to the second floor of the The Commons community mall on Thonglor Soi 17 and you’ll find this tiny bar nestled in one corner. Take a step inside the dimly lit room to find yourself transported to the Oriental Express train back in the 1950s with interiors splattered with vintage luggage, maps and brass magnifiers. Take a seat in one of the wooden booths, but if you’re flying solo, head to the bar for a more intimate cocktail experience. The drinks roster is dedicated to vintage classics like the Bobby Burns and Sazerac, given a modern spin with the infusion of home-instilled syrup and homemade ingredients.
