The River Bar at The Peninsula Bangkok
May 11, 2018
Located at the luxurious Peninsula Hotel, The River Bar may just be the finest setting in all of Bangkok to relax by the water with a drink in your hand. While many bars in the city have made headlines in recent years with their soaring rooftop locations and cameos in popular movies and reality shows, The River Bar has remained firmly planted on the ground, yet still set in seriously rarified air. It is the combination of exquisite cocktails and soothing riverside atmosphere that makes The River Bar so special. Being besides water naturally relaxes, and that is the vibe that permeates throughout the venue with soft seating (each and every table has an unobstructed view of the river, by the way) low candlelight, colorful flowers and the gentle lapping of waves complementing the impressive libations list. Being The Peninsula, the offerings are naturally world class, with everything from freshly-blended tropical fruit smoothies to a selection of cocktails (created by the hotel’s esteemed mixologists), global spirits, beer, and wine on offer. Their most famous concoction is the tantalizing Thaijito – a cooling blend of premium Thai rum, peach schnapps, fresh lime juice, mint, lime, pineapple and raw tropical sugar. The sun sets over the river each and every day in Bangkok, only adding to the allure of early evenings at The River Bar, our favourite time of the day to be there.
