The Bamboo Bar

The Bamboo Bar

Live Jazz & Blues Bar.

From its modest start in 1953, The Bamboo Bar has evolved into a celebrated Bangkok institution, drawing jazz enthusiasts from around the world. This iconic spot, Bangkok's first jazz venue, retains its sensual 1950s ambience.


The Mandarin Oriental's acclaimed mixologist team masterfully crafts drinks and cocktails, notably the recently-introduced The Evolution menu. Inspired by the natural progression of bamboo and featuring local ingredients, The Evolution menu embodies The Bamboo Bar's ethos: a legendary jazz establishment perpetually adapting and evolving with the times. Also available is an extensive list of classic cocktails to fuel the evening.


A live band featuring a jazz vocalist takes the stage from Monday to Thursday, 8 to 11:45pm, and on Fridays to Saturdays from 8pm to 12:45am. On Sundays, a pianist performs from 9 to 11:45pm.


Dress Code Policy: After 6:30pm, guests are kindly asked to wear elegant attire and proper footwear, while gentlemen are requested to wear long trousers and closed shoes. Sleeveless shirts for gentlemen are not permitted at any time of the day.


Remarks: The Bamboo Bar, being a sought-after spot, does not accept reservations. Guests under the age of 20 are permitted inside The Bamboo Bar only before 7:30pm. After this time, they may accompany an adult in the outdoor terrace area, subject to availability.
