Hand-crafted cocktails, live music and buzzing atmosphere: what more could you want from a Bangkok bar?
We headed down to the newly revamped W XYZ bar last Thursday at Aloft Hotel on Soi 11 to test out their new craft drink range and schmooze alongside local band Jenny and The Scallywags.
While W XYZ bar has until now always been a pleasant pit stop along the party street of Soi 11, we’ve never seen it as much more than a hotel bar in a great location.
But not anymore.
Chic new furniture and complementary art from local craftsmen create an intimate and buzzing atmosphere while an impressive roster of live music will ensure that this is more than just a top-up spot on the way to Nest.
Jenny and The Scallywags played their new single Sounds Like Maybe on the launch night, alongside a host of well-known and modern classics, showing the audience how they won the 2015 Project Aloft Star competition.
The real stand-out star of the new and improved W XYZ bar however, is undoubtedly the drinks list. We were treated to a number of unique and delicious cocktails including Thai Love, Fiery Mangtini and – our favourite – the Spicy Kaffir Lime Bubbles.
“Our craft cocktail selection is designed by our in-house Craftsmen who have a passion for their local ingredients and unique Thainess. Care, attention and creativity to get perfectly matched ingredients is what we do at W XYZ bar,” explains Winfried Sanders, F&B manager at Aloft.
It’s not just cocktails either; W XYZ are cashing in on the current trend of craft beers and are now offering 3 rotating taps showcasing brews from microbreweries across the world. There’s also an extensive range of craft bottled beers to indulge in too.
If that wasn’t enough to persuade you to taste for yourself the newly refurbished W XYZ, take advantage of their current deal running until 29 February 2016: Buy 1 Get 1 Free on all craft cocktails and craft beers between 5pm and 1am every day.
Have a Spicy Kaffir Lime Bubbles for us!
