Top Places to Have a Tipple in Thailand With Anantara


Anantara has some of the most unique bars in Thailand and you’ll be hard pressed to pick just one favourite, so we’ve travelled from the jungles up north, to the City of Angels all the way down to the islands in the south and picked our Top Ten for you to bucket list for your next sundowner or night cap.

Elephant Bar and Opium TerraceAnantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp and Resort

A cosy haven for travellers to either lounge in comfort with a fire blazing in winter, or outside admiring the stunning infinity pool and Mekong Valley. The Elephant Bar and Opium Terrace comforts guests with light bites from northern Thailand. A wide range of beverages include Thai inspired cocktails such as the Street Hawker blend of vodka, Martini Bianco, freshly squeezed lime and passion fruit juices, coriander leaf and a spicy red chili, and the Killer Bee cocktail concocted from vodka, Jägermeister, kaffir lime leaves, red chili and fresh honey.

THE SERVICE 1921 - Anantara Chiang Mai Resort

Designed for a tropical climate with spacious verandas to catch the breeze off the Ping River, the splendid Service 1921 Restaurant and Bar was built in 1915 and opened in 1921 as the British Consulate. The Service 1921 reimagines this heritage with a fictitious illusion of the British government’s secret intelligence service. Social and private spaces range from communal dining salons, an elegant bar with a plush lounge and al fresco seating on the wrap-around lower and upper verandas, to the award-winning wine cellar for connoisseur journeys and a private dining room accessed through a secret book shelf door in the library wall.

Aqua BarAnantara Siam Bangkok Hotel

From celebs to politicians, to Thailand’s high society, Aqua Bar, the inner city hidden gem, is the place to be spotted in Bangkok.  In Aqua’s open air garden courtyard, guests can snack on creative appetisers, enjoy meals of Thai noodles and Mediterranean light bites, or indulge in innovative ice creams. Freshly squeezed juices, draught beers and virgin cocktails refresh, and for those who prefer beverages with a kick, Aqua serves the best martinis in the city.

A.ShoreAnantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort 

A.Shore puts a modern spin on the traditional desert island beach shack, with its whitewashed deck adorned with rustic furnishings including the hull of a once-hardworking fishing boat transformed into a comfy private booth. Matching the décor, the menu is stylish yet informal, starring simple Mediterranean fare with Asian influences. Think light appetisers, flavoursome main courses and fresh, grilled seafood, perfect for al-fresco enjoyment. Relax on loungers or beanbags around the pool, sink into a beanbag or perch on a swing at the bar, cocktail in hand and soak up the sunset views to a soundtrack of upbeat tunes and the soft roll of the waves.

Choose your wine from one of the sixty premium vintage and new world labels or if it’s stellar cocktails you’re after, this is the place to be. Dominated by dark woods, rusted steel and raw leather, its industrial look is something you’d expect in a warehouse restaurant on New York’s Lower East Side instead of on a tropical island.
