This is a really enjoyable bar. It has a relaxed, informal and welcoming atmosphere with very good, respectful service. I enjoyed a delicious Green Salad with Pumpkin and a Smoked Salmon Panini - made with fresh fillets of salmon, not packaged. Very nice. The bar is located in the hotel lobby, which is usually a bad idea, but here I... More

Great place central to enjoy a cigar with a fantastic whisky and cigar selection! Service is spot on, especially by K Music! Super friendly and anticipating. Would recommend to every cigar and whisky lover. Lounge has also good live music.

Had a light lunch here and a drink, good spot and good views on the river. They serve a good priced decent wine - harder to find than you would think.

The lobby bar is a really nice and relaxing place, especially when you are exhausted after a long trip to actually get to Bangkok. The drinks are good, so is the food, especially the Thai platter. However the service seems a bit lost, especially on a busy Saturday night, when we wandered in. Our drinks took forever to be delivered... More

This location offers excellent ambiance and staff is very gracious. Most nights that I've visited they provided live music. On this visit they had the piano man.

Only thing that would make this place better would be I dB it had a city view. Great cocktails good selection and great value for money. If you compare this kind of establishment across the world. Expensive for bkk but we smokers are not welcomed in all places. Beggars can't be choosers.

It's good to find that InterContinental Hotel was just next to us when we were on the way to Central Embassy Mall. Having high tea set for two persons at 850 Bahts ++, with a tower of high tea pastries and choices of tea by TWG. Highly recommended if you are too tired to shop further and grasp a chance... More
