Neighborhood: Silom
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 worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.

Went here on my last night in Bangkok and had an absolutely brilliant time. The staff were great and friendly. Manager David was great. Had a few drinks with him at the bar and thoroughly enjoyed. For the type of establishment they are running, it is absolutely brilliant. Cant wait to come back!

I went there alone for a brief look on a Friday evening. I was stunned by the decor and cozy setting with leather couches and soft lighting. There is an aristocratic aesthetic but without the pretentiousness that goes with it. The staff were exceptional - recommending a flight of whiskey tasters, which were sensational. I'm not a smoker so avoided the cigars, but learned to appreciate their qualities after a sit down with David the GM at the bar area. His passion (and the fact he's English) really made the evening for me and I must have stayed a total of 4 hours - resulting in a trip to the amazing ice bar next door. Vodka caramel shots were stunning! I totally recommend Whisgars Silom and I will be back to see the staff and enjoy a different flight of whiskies on my next tip for sure!! Thanks team!

This bar is definitely worth a visit - lots of choice on the drinks menu, and 4 different bars. The ice bar is worth a quick visit, if only to sample some of the more adventurous shots and take some photos. The cocktail mixologist knows her stuff, and the overall ambiance is great.

Nice lounge among a lot of bars and go-go bars. Very helpful and friendly staff. Too bad they are paying very high taxes making their cigars very expensive.
Also very good selection of single malt scotches!

I have travelled a lot of countries and often come across teams like the best restaurant or establishment in the city self proclaimed by the establishment. Hence I was little bit intrigued when I saw walking along Silom Road the restaurant claiming to be the best whiskey bar in Asia. I was not very impressed by the entrance and assumed it to be an ordinary bar at Holiday Inn.
I was staying at the Tower club at Lebua and after a day of hectic sightseeing with my family and kids I was completely exhausted. It is raining heavily in Bangkok especially in the evenings these days.
In the evening I decided to go out to get some takeaway food from the Indian restaurant on the road from this establishment. After placing the order I decided to go in and check the place out.
To say that I was impressed upon walking in by the ambience of the place would not be out of place. But what really impressed me was the waitress who spoke good English and educated me on appreciating single malt.
We ordered two sets of Glenfiddich experience containing what I believe to be 15 ML of 12 year, 15 year, 18 year and 21 year old whiskey. It was served with water from Speyside with cute dropper to mix the three drops of water recommended by the waitress to our whiskey.

The metallic curtains, the use of timber, the cigar room, rustic brick walls all lent to creating an amazing and surprising experience for me.

The only downside was the dressing down I got from my wife who was waiting for dinner at the Lebua which I completely forgot enjoying myself with my cousin appreciating single malt. I was late by only 10 minutes but then people who are married can understand what I mean.

Looking forward to visiting again.

Good place in BKK for whiskies..and cocktails...I am would recommend the whisky sour...staff are very attentive and you get the whole place to yourself if you come during the happy hour from 4pm....
for those of you who prefer single malt, they do have a good selection but not in the range you get in singapore and Hong Kong.
But, well, it's one place I will keep coming back to!

Whisgars is a good reflection on the city life of a foreigner in Bangkok. Away from the tourism but still central to the city. There are plenty of places like Whisgars but don't seem to create the same atmosphere and entertaining night out that is enjoyed by many when visiting this place. I would suggest finding out yourself what i am talking about and go down there. Service is friendly and prices are right. Location is perfect for after work or if you are travelling as it is right in the center.
