Overview

The Rebirth of an Icon The Bamboo Bar is a landmark that personifies the passion, seductive elegance and spirit of both The Oriental Hotel and Bangkok's rich history. From humble beginnings in 1953 in what is now the hotel's renowned Authors' Wing, The Bamboo Bar grew in size and reputation to become an international legend. In late 2014, the bar closed for an extensive renovation, intended to propel this iconic establishment into the future whilst preserving its unique history and unique character. Welcome to the new Bamboo Bar - refreshed, remixed and reinvented.

It is high-end, but certainly not overpriced. Cocktails are of the highest standards. And the music was really great. Only some of the audience was posh, snobby - typically 5-star hotel guests - too bad. But it is worthwhile to go if you love quality...More

Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions,
this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many.
Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi
Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the
plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a
night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's
