Tucked away inside the weird and wonderful Mansion 7 complex on Ratchada Road, this bar - simply titled ‘Cocktail’ - serves a long list of drinks spectacularly concocted by some award-winning flair mixologists.
The real show here is what goes on behind the bar. Even ordering a simple mojito or long island merits a good minute of theatre from the bartenders, with elaborate throws, flips and tricks all difficult to take your eyes off.

The industrial décor, broody lighting and high ceilings subtly continues the spooky theme of Mansion 7, which, by the way, is Bangkok’s only haunted house theme park/community mall. To really get the full experience, it's best to pull up a seat at the bar, although there are a few more private booths at the back and an even more private VIP area upstairs.
Cocktail at Mansion 7 really is a gem of a find, particularly considering its Huay Kwang/Ratchada location – an area of Bangkok that has little in the way of cool places to drink (think more boring hotel lobby bars and dodgy old massage parlours and you’d be along the right lines). Bonus points go to Cocktail for their friendly, English-speaking staff who can recommend different options and are more than happy to let you plug in your own music. They also run a ‘buy 2 get 1 free’ happy hour daily from 18:00-22:00; considering most cocktails are under 300 baht already, this is a great deal.
The best way to reach Cocktail at Mansion 7 is to take the MRT to Huay Kwang Station. Take Exit 1, turn right out the stairs, then the huge purple Mansion 7 complex is difficult to miss about two minutes’ walk up the road.
