Backstage Bangkok - Why We Love it
If you were to ever bring a group of Thailands best bartenders together and ask them to open a bar, then Backstage would be born. and this is exactly what happened. led and owned by 6 of Bangkok's best.
Ronnaporn Kanivichaporn, Supawit Muttarattana, Kitibordee Chortubtim, Watcharapong Suriyaphan, Anakin Wongsala, and Chennarong Bhumichitr.
With such a stellar lineup, it's easy to see how the bar quickly gained notoriety. As of this year, it even sits comfortably at number 20 in the Asia 50 best list. But other than the super talent what makes this bar special?
Inspiration from the Silver Screen.
The cocktail menu has several drinks all inspired by movies from the silver screen. Alongside this are some of the classics well made by the team. what we find is the drinks are playful and completely unpretentious. Take Forgetful Painter inspired by the '50 first dates movie'. Chamomile vodka is paired with passionfruit, pineapple, honey caramel syrup, egg white, and absinthe. Or there is Yoho, a 'Pirates of the Caribbean' cocktail with spiced rum, cherry liqueur, sour orange, coconut water, and rootbeer foam. alongside their tasty cocktails, they also have a selection of wine and beer on offer.
Step through the velvety red curtain at the Playhaus hotel and you will find the snazzy bar. Complete with lightbulb adorned dressing mirrors, sleek suede coaches, and an array of spices and herbs along the bar. We personally love to sit at the bar and talk to the guys. It really feels like one of those neighborhood bars where you can fit straight in. Or, if you're coming with a group, call ahead and grab one of the booths.
