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
