Fortunately for classy men, Bangkok has many great places where you can celebrate life and confidently flash your (new) stylish outfit. The venues we are talking about in this article are on fire. Quite literally, because we are taking a closer look at some of Bangkok’s best cigar & whisky bars and lounges.
Here are Patrick & Co’s recommended cigar & whisky bars presented in no particular order:
As Whisgars’ name suggests, this luxurious venue combines the best of both worlds – cigars and whisky. You will be able to enjoy your drink of a high-end whisky, cocktail or fine liquor and premium hand-rolled cigars from the comfort of the cosy leather sofas situated in fancy interior.
Besides Chivas Regal VIP room, frequent visitors will be pleased to find private lockers where they can store their personal drinks or cigars. A standout part of Whisgars’ entertainment is regular appearances of a magician. His repertoire of magic tricks covers anything from playing cards to telepathy. Well worth a try!
Character Whisky & Cigar Bar
Another good spot where you can relax, smoke and be merry in Bangkok is Character Whisky & Cigar Bar. You will find yourself in a classy wood-inspired interior furnished with leather sofas and armchairs. Apart from the usual suspects – cigars and whisky – the bar’s unique feature is a stunning view from the 32nd floor overlooking Benjasiri Park and Bangkok skyline.
Cigar gourmets will be spoilt for choice in Character Whisky and Cigar Bar. Their selection exceeds 100 fine handmade cigars predominantly from South and Central America and the Caribbean. On the drink side, you can find fine and rare malt whisky accompanied by other fine spirits.
The P&L Club Bangkok
The P&L Club is the place to be for cigar and whisky aficionados. You can indulge yourself in more than 80 kinds of finest single malt whisky or enjoy over 240 Cuban cigars (hopefully not in a single night).
The P&L Club goes beyond a just traditional cigar and whisky bar as it offers an exclusive membership for regular customers. Once you become a member, you will get access to the club’s constant stream of privileges and exclusive private events.
La Casa del Habano
La Casa del Habano is a refined gentleman’s lounge located within the Mandarin Oriental Hotel and decorated in the British Colonial style. This timeless venue stands out from the crowd as the first official retailer of Habanos cigars in Thailand and it delivers.
While seated in comfortable leather armchairs and admiring the iconic interior, you can browse from more than 80 different kinds of rare liquor. And when there’s time to take a puff, La Casa del Habano has over 300 Cuban cigars on the menu. Take your pick.
Black Amber Thonglor Social Club
Black Amber Social Club is an extension of a successful and similarly named barber shop. Tucked away in a quiet Soi 6 in Thong Lor, the club hides its sophisticated charm within a converted townhouse.
What’s on the menu? Whisky and rum is the central theme here – you will find around 20 different labels to choose from, including rate single malts. Cigars can be enjoyed by the gentlemen in the quiet courtyard outside.
Apart from our top picks, here are some more cigar & whisky bar worth paying attention to: Cigar One, DUKE, The Balvenie Lounge, The Balcony Lounge & Humidor and The Bling Pig.
It doesn’t matter whether you and your friends just want to enjoy a quiet classy moment with a sip of whisky or you are a devoted cigar aficionado – there’s a place for everyone in Bangkok.
As tailors, we believe that a part of the gentleman experience is also dressing for the occasion.
