After spending years in Bangkok hanging out in bars that feel somewhat cheap or sleazy it was super refreshing to find a place that reminded me of the quality of funky bars back home in London. Imagine a quirky cocktail bar in the middle of London or the trendy areas of Notts or Leeds and this is exactly what Apoteka is. Awesome service and cocktails, great tunes, down to earth management and a pure lack of the 'tourist trap' feeling that the Sukhumvit area of Bangkok can so easily foster and fuel.
Its what the bar strip of BKK has been waiting for...a place where you dont have to scream over the music but can while away an entire evening with awesome drinks and tunes and feel connected to non-commerical trendiness. Even now after leaving Bangkok but potentially going back each year - this is the first place I would meet with old friends and likely to be the place we sit at all night

Apoteka, soi 11, has a really nice ambiance. Nice food and drinks. Most of the time they have live music. And last but not least the staff is really frindly. You must have seen the apoteka.

My wife and I visited Bangkok recently and we loved Apoteka in Sukhumvit Soi 11! This is our favourite Soi as there's so much going on there in the night, so much choice. We had to drop by Apoteka every night as it was such a good experience. Great location, great service, great atmosphere, great food and great selection of drinks, we couldn't fault it. The blues bands they have are very talented, we will be back for sure on our next visit, can't wait to try the brunch! Thanks for looking after us everyone!

I recently visited Bangkok alone on a mission to try somewhere other than the USA. It was right up my street. However what completed it was the bar i found on Soy 11, Apoteka.

A jazz and blues bar which does excellent food and a great selection of beers and cocktails

I particularly enjoyed the Sunday afternoon session that i attended. Live accoustic types bands with gourmet hotdogs from around the World, excellent banter from the Manager and the staff, and a menu of cocktails to choose from. Would highly recommend you grabbing a Singh, and sitting back on the terrace to enjoy the city

I've been to the Apoteka in Thong Lor but just recently sauntered on into the Soi 11 location for an afternoon beer/live music. I was very pleased by the overall atmosphere of the bar, laid back, friendly, family-like feeling. People were playing real nice live music...they were grilled sausages and hot dogs on the grill outside....we killed a few hours and didn't want to leave! Will be coming back for that Sunday BBQ.
