Bangkok boasts many great wine bars, but sometimes only Champagne will do. When the urge for something fabulous and fizzy strikes, head to one of these venues, all of which are set apart by their premium bottles of bubbly.
Flûte, The Dome at Lebua
The Dome at Lebua has the world’s highest open air champagne bar, Flûte, which is a Perrier Jouet Bar located on the 64th floor. Right next to Sirocco, this means guests can enjoy what is probably one of the best views in Bangkok. It serves only Perrier Jouet champagne.
CRU Champagne Bar
Soak up the high life at one of the world’s highest al fresco champagne bars. CRU Champagne Bar at Red Sky, Centara Hotel, offers beautiful 360-degree views of the city skyline. If you’re shopping at Central World, there’s always time for a glass of fizz – or a bottle – at CRU, a G.H Mumm bar.
The St. Regis
The St. Regis Bangkok is one of the more enjoyable places to enjoy proper Champagne, especially on those twice-monthly Sundays when the horse races take place at The Royal Bangkok Sports Club across the road. Better still, stop by on the last Sunday of every month for the hotel’s so-called Mega Brunch, a veritable feast that includes free-flow Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label Champagne.
Scarlett Wine Bar
Sitting 37 floors above Silom Road at the Pullman Bangkok Hotel G, Scarlett Wine Bar provides lofty views of the city and river to pair with some of France’s finest wine. As an added bonus, throughout this October, Scarlett is celebrating the official harvest season with special Champagne offers, putting premium bottles of bubbly deservedly in the limelight.
Quince Bar & Eatery
This rustic restaurant on Sukhumvit still packs them in each night. And part of the reason Quince’s appeal remains as strong as ever — beyond its always impeccable dishes — might just be its laudable wine list, featuring a healthy variety of proper Champagne, such as a 2002 vintage Cristal/Louis Roederer Magnum and a 2004 vintage Dom Perignon.
Hotel Muse has a right to brag. It lays claim to one thing that no other place in Bangkok does—its very own Champagne. Hotel Muse Champagne comes from the Médot family vineyards of Montagne de Reims, a more than 100-year-old Maison that still uses the agriculture raisonnée method to ensure its vineyards are farmed sustainably. Try it for yourself at any of the hotel’s outlets, including The Speakeasy, its sky-high alfresco bar.
This stylish Champagne and wine bar at the Grand Hyatt Erawan serves the good stuff from 3pm until midnight all week long. A beautiful garden setting adds layers of elegance and intimacy to the experience, too, making it bar@494 definitive win in our books. For more of a culinary affair, stop by the bar’s sister venue, Tables Grill, which serves one of Bangkok’s best Champagne brunches each Sunday.
L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon
It’s only fitting that the man with the most Michelin stars in the world would provide a fantastic range of Champagne at his Bangkok branch. Complete one of the city’s most lavish dining experiences with a 2007 vintage Cristal, Brut, or Louis Roederer.
