Bangkok, Thailand

Evoking the golden age of glamour, the new BKK Social Club at Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River celebrates the legendary allure of Buenos Aires and the energy of today’s Bangkok. From the moment guests enter the bar, the vibrant yet seductive design sets the scene. The dramatic back bar, displaying an extensive spirits collection, catches the eye. Plants sprouting from chandeliers above and layers of colonnades invite guests to explore in all directions. The cocktail bar features green velvet upholstered banquettes with backrests stretching to the ceiling, while two semi-outdoor courtyards encourage socialising.

At the helm, innovative Beverage Manager Philip Bischoff brings his talents to the bar. Ranked #1 in Thailand and #21 in the world by Drinks International for the Bar World's Most Influential Figures, Bischoff shares the artistry of mixology with bespoke cocktails that reflect the typical drinking culture of South America combined with local Thai touches.​

“The lives of people in Buenos Aires and Bangkok revolve around social gatherings,” says Bischoff. “That enthusiasm is what binds us together and makes both cities such great destinations. BKK Social Club celebrates that in a glamorous, vibrant and spirited way. This is a bar built for socialising.”

The craftsmanship of the bartenders is on display through handcrafted cocktails, along with an extensive selection of fine grower Champagnes, expected favourites, artisanal spirits and Cuban cigars.

“While separated by half a world, the cultures of Buenos Aires and Bangkok have a true passion for life, good times and great drinks,” says Bischoff. “The menu emphasises this and brings guests on a journey of the people, places and parties during the yesteryear of Buenos Aires. Rounding out the beverage menu, our signature bottled cocktails come in three sizes, alongside an expansive list of Champagnes, perfect to get the night started.”

Designed by AvroKo, the glamorous cocktail bar is reminiscent of Argentine grand architecture, and is framed by two semi-outdoor courtyards. One side is home to Bangkok’s cigar aficionados, while the other offers the perfect space for social gatherings to enjoy bespoke bottled cocktails and Champagnes.  

BKK Social Club will welcome Bangkok’s who’s who as well as local and international guests looking to socialise in style beginning December 18, 2020 at the new Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok at Chao Phraya River. For reservations, click here.
