You might think of cocktail bars as having loud party music but Alonetogether is pleasantly unique. Here, you can enjoy some of the best live jazz music and experience a more laid-back bar atmosphere.

Some of their best-sellers that you need to try out are their ginger rum cocktail and their Thousand Island Thai Tea. Both have great layers of flavour that you’ll surely find refreshing and give you enough buzz to keep you grooving all night long.

The bar also has a very intimate appeal thanks to its smaller-than-average venue. Expect the place to be crowded most nights but herein lies the appeal of this unique and must-visit cocktail bar in Bangkok.

Local Tip:
Alonetogether is a bit cramped and gets crowded most nights. As such, you should try to arrive earlier (around 7:00 PM) to secure a good spot or seat.

Asia Today is a refreshing take on cocktail bars that you need to visit when in Thailand! This establishment is quite stylish and modern looking but if you look deeper, you’ll see that it still pays homage to the traditional and cultural roots of the country.

They do this through the use of local ingredients in the preparation of their cocktails. To make the most of your experience,  try out their old fashioned and rum-based cocktail mixes as these add locally sourced honey to the drink making them taste quite unique!

Another strong point about Asia Today is that aside from the flavour of their cocktails, their presentation is also quite superb. Their mixologists can prepare your drink with so much dazzle and pizzaz that it’s a show in and of itself.
