“It's Oriental Hotel, what else do you need to say”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

Bamboo Bar is still something special and always nice for Bangkok's old hands to re-visit. Picked up a cigar at the small but well equipped shop next to Bamboo Bar. Sat outside and soaked in the atmosphere whilst beautiful people walked by. Things you must note: if you plan to have a conversation with your fellow guests, forget it if you sit inside where the band is playing. It's more like a concert with loud music that makes it a strain to chit chat. Oh, for the manager please, kindly ask your staff that guests can finish their drinks before being asked repeatedly if they can serve another.

“Great Jazz and Great Cocktails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

The perfect bar in the perfect hotel. The jazz is not world class, but it's about the best you will find in this city.

“Great cocktails”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We stopped in here for a couple of cocktails before heading out for dinner. As we were staying in the hotel, it became our 'local' and we visited every day. Great drinks and snacks. They have live music most evenings too.

“relaxing bar & music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

The staff & band were truely amazing. Very impressive that there were expats playing jazz at night. Even though the bar is tucked away inside the building it was still great
