Owner description: 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.

“Great cocktails in a nice little bar.”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

We dined at the hotel one evening with friends who were guests of the hotel and made a point of also having drinks at the Bamboo Bar.

The bar is small and has a deep footprint. My preference would have been to be outdoors, rather than in a sealed airconditioned space. It is attractive, however. The drinks were fantastic. Do try the ginger cosmo and my favourite, the grapefruit julep.

“Perfect for a drink after dinner...”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

It's always nice to visit this small and nice jazz bar after the buffet on the terrace restaurant on the Mandarin Oriental.

The music is very always very good and atmosphere intimate - we have been on the Bamboo bar a lot of times, and always a success.

“Great Jazz and Great Cocktails”
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”
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.
