About
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.

An institution not to be missed

An evening with Jazz in Bangkok? For many decades it will be the bamboo bar with their wonderful band and mesmerising vocalist. Make a booking in advance for a nice seat and sip slowly on their pricy cocktails. Enjoy!

Live jazz with classy vibe in Bangkok.

Luxury, classy & lovely jazz bar in The Mandarin Oriental Bangkok. As far as I know, booking cannot be done & flip fop or shorts (for men) are not allowed. You may call & check dress code. Close at midnight.
There are good cocktails, spirits, beer & wine for friends & couples.

Best jazz bar experience so far
Jul 2020 • Couples
I’ve never been to Bamboo bar or any real Jazz bar before, went there to hear my friend sing and felt really impressed. The band played sooo well, everyone was so professional, and of course the singer is “awesome”, she has her own style with a clear&sweet voice 😁

Best jazz bar in Bangkok so far :D
Aug 2020
I've been to more than 10 jazz bars in Bangkok and Bamboo is always my favorite! So it was my first choice after the COVID lockdown. The bar had to take a few seat away due to the social distancing, which I just love it! The new Thai singer delivered the best vibe! I've requested a few songs and she could just sang them right away. One of the my favorite moments was when I requested for Let's do it (Let's fall in love) by Cole Porter, it was the best version I heard in my life so far........Thank the band and the signer again, you guys made my night!

Grand Old Time (that makes one momentarily forgets about the pandemic)
Sep 2020 • Friends
Always love Bamboo Bar. After Covid-19, however, the visit was the more sweeter. The old world charm, superb cocktails, and world class jazz are still on point. The prohibition of international traveling also means there are no international jazz singers at the mic as customary. This turns out to be a blessing in disguise. At the helm this time round was Ms. Natasha Patamapongs, a Thai jazz songstress. We had such great time being entertained by Ms. Natasha and the band. Her voice and energy carried the night. We cannot wait to be back at The Bamboo Bar again. A thoroughly enjoyable establishment that harkens us back to the grand old time.

This was an old world experience. You can just imagine how the happy few in colonial times gathered and enjoyed jazz and cocktails. Great drinks, amazing service and wonderful live performances. A great way to start or end an evening

A night to remember
Jul 2020
My girlfriend and I went yesterday (a Saturday) for the first time to this great bar and we absolutely loved it! It is a well-kept little place, a touch above ordinary bars. Last night the bar was abuzz with people even though it was a national holiday, the weather wasn't the best and lest not forget the coronavirus. We arrived around 19:30 and there were a few available tables, later on the bar was packed! The live music starts at 20:00 so I highly recommend you going earlier to have a place since you cannot make reservations. We were there for about 2:30 hours and we could have easily spent the whole night there! We were truly captivated by the music played by the band. For me personally, it was really special since it was the first time I listened to jazz in a club. We had several signature cocktails and all of them were perfectly balanced. We loved all of them! My girlfriend and I will definitely come back soon.

Such a talented Thai World-Class Jazz Singer!!
Jul 2020 • Couples
We've been going to Bamboo Bar for more than 15 years.
Recently due to COVID, understand it may be impossible to get a Guest Singer from abroad.
But the Local singer now is nothing short of World-Class!! The house band is perfect as usual.
Loved it!!
