Overview

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.

Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi

plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a
