Beer Vault at Four Points by Sheraton
Beer Bar on Sukhumvit
Beer Vault on the ground floor of the Four Points by Sheraton delivers atmosphere and charm that is usually lacking in most hotel bars, combined with hearty dishes and one of the best selections of unusual beers in Bangkok. So rare is a chilled out, friendly bar in this area of the city that many locals have made it their regular joint, an impressive feat in this ever changing environment. The bar has a series of weekly events like the quiz night on a Thursday, and monthly offers on rare speciality beers from around the world.
Beer Vault is not hard to get to either, only a ten minute walk from the sky train station at Nana or Phrom Pong, less than a minute’s walk from the end of Sukhumvit 15. The restaurant and bar is open from 11:00 till 01:00.
Of course, the focus at Beer Vault is on the brews, and there is a fantastic range on offer with 97 bottles and at least 6 offerings on tap, it can be hard to know where to start! From 17:30 to 21:30 every day there is a beer o’clock, a happy hour with a selection of buy one get one free deals that comes with a selection of complimentary snacks. For great value draught beer check out the Beer Lovers List, which includes Guinness, Stella and Leffe, and the beer is well stored allowing you to recreate that refreshing first gulp feeling you would find in Europe or America. For something a little different, check out the monthly promotions that allow customers to discover craft beers from around the globe, for example an Irish theme for March (and St Patrick’s Day), German beers for Oktoberfest when the selection includes Munchner Weisse, Flensburger Gold and Krombacher Pils. Prices range from 150 baht to 350 baht.
The food menu is well coordinated with the beverage of choice here. Beer Vault is all about large portions of great value, great tasting food. For those who are just a little peckish, I recommend the mini pies (150 baht for ten). Warm from the oven and surrounded by buttery pastry, fillings include Thai green curry, spinach with cheese and a classic stew and mashed potato shepherds’ pie. Other great value dishes include bangers & mash (200 baht), nachos (120 baht) and the ploughman’s platter (200 baht) which comes with sausage, cheese, potato salad and salami served on grilled French bread. There are plenty of regular food deals too, like the thin and crispy pizzas at 400 baht for two and the salmon grissini with St Louis Beer, a great option for those who want something a little more refined. I loved the peach fruit beer that accompanied the smoked salmon covered breadsticks.
People don’t just visit Beer Vault for the food and beer though, and on a Thursday evening it was buzzing with groups taking part in the weekly quiz night Competing for a bucket of beer, the show’s host is a jolly chap called Lee Shamrock, who also takes to the stage on Saturday nights to entertain the crowds with his guitar. The big sports games are shown on the flat screen televisions in the bar and on super Sundays you can spend the whole day lounging in the comfy chairs on the upper floor of the bar, watching hours of live sport.
Beer Vault is a friendly, welcoming bar that shows that hotel bars don’t have to be cold and sanitised. If you are looking for somewhere to chill that offers one of the best selections of beers in the city, we recommend a lock-in at Beer Vault.
