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.

The beverage and liquor concept has been created by Mandarin Oriental’s award winning mixologist team, with Bamboo Bar Originals retaining their Signature status on the cocktail list along with classics mixed according to their original recipes. The Bamboo Bar’s new “Flavour Cocktails” – masterful blends of legacy and tradition with modernity and innovation – are set to become legends in their own right.
