Reimagining the British Consulate era of our colonial house, The Service 1921 Restaurant & Bar conjures an eccentric fantasy of British government secret intelligence.
Stroll through vintage salon dining rooms to reach a library wall. Open the secret book shelf door to access the hidden private dining room. Savour contemporary Thai, Chinese and Vietnamese cuisines with Wine Guru pairings.
Retire to the whiskey room for a fine single malt, or the veranda to enjoy Cuban cigars.
Offering a sensational twist on colonial-era heritage, The Service 1921 Restaurant & Bar was honoured in the 2016 Asia Pacific Awards for its unique design concept.
Our magnificent colonial house opened in 1921 as the British Consulate of Chiang Mai. Drinks and meals were served in the consulate’s dining room and parties for the British King or Queen’s birthdays were social highlights of the year.
The Service 1921 reimagines this era with an eccentric illusion of the British government’s secret intelligence service. Interconnecting salons portray artful old-world drama. Vintage artefacts nestle amongst fictitious spy paraphernalia. Placemats mimic MI6 classified documents and coasters resemble vintage Thai postcards.
The private room, accessed through a book shelf door, features a magnificent dining table, a wall of apothecary cabinets and a large map routing the days of British teak logging interests – providing uniquely exclusive secret dining, steeped in historic fantasy.
