Have you seen One for the Road, that Nattawut “Baz” Poonpiriya big dick energy-driven tearjerker about two friends recounting their bittersweet memories with their ex-girlfriends? If not, then stream it on Netflix ASAP. If you have and liked it, then you may want to check out this new bar called OFTR.
Run by director Baz and his friends, OFTR Bar (on the ground floor of the same building where cinema-inspired café FICS is located) replicates the bar set-up from the film’s final scene. The bar’s doorway is designed like a New York subway entrance, while the space itself resembles a dive bar in the Big Apple—dim lighting, a wide wooden counter bar, and faux leather couches. The echoing clinks and clanks from glasses and shakers add to the intimate vibe.
Baz collaborated with Mahaniyom Cocktail Bar's co-founder Ronnaporn “Neung” Kanivichaporn to create 10 signature cocktails that realize the ones you see in the film, such as Alice’s Dance (B360), Noona’s Tears (B360) and After the Rain (B360).
There’s also a special concoction called WKW (B420), a tribute to legendary filmmaker—and One for the Road’s producer—Wong Kar-wai. The drink reworks the classic negroni by combining whisky with cherry wine and chrysanthemum Campari.
When the clock is about to strike midnight, the barkeeps go around and offer guests “one for the road”. If you say yes, get ready to chug down a pint of beer with a shot of whiskey (B380 each) for that one last hit before heading home.
