The Speakeasy at Hotel Muse

Unusual Rooftop Bar Bangkok

The Speakeasy Hotel Muse takes you back to the 1920’s Prohibition era when illicit liquor was rolled in the back door by mobsters in Hench coats. Thankfully, you won’t be breaking any laws at this speakeasy, but authentic touches like a bath full of cocktails in jam jars and cool jazz playing in the background keep the vibe unique and funky. With great views over Sukhumvit and towards Sathorn, this rooftop is more unusual than most, but this isn’t just a skyline; the classic vintage cocktails are just as important as the view. Easy to find, Hotel Muse is on Langsuan, ten minutes from the BTS at Chit Lom.

This is vintage decadence at its best, with three different venues over two floors. You enter into the Long Bar, with its polished wooden table and glass domed roof. From here you can either head to the small bar and terrace to your left where you can watch the master mixologists at work and get a great view of leafy Langsuan Road. Like most rooftops they save the real wow factor for the very top, so head through the slightly hidden painted door up to the 25th floor. Surrounded by grey slate domes, there is a terrace, made of imitation grass, set up like an open-air sitting room, with comfy sofas and floor lamps. Three private turrets can be booked for groups, with enough room on the curved leather benches for at least 15.

 

One of the fantastic things about Speakeasy is the expertise of the staff. Instead of inventing their own cocktails they have taken the time to do plenty of research into old-school mixings, including a French martini: a blend of vodka, Chambord, pineapple juice and with a hint of lime to cut through the sweet jam-like flavour. Another favourite is the Sazerac 1838, allegedly the world’s first ever cocktail, an invigorating combination of Jack Daniel’s, absinthe and bitters. With such expertise behind the bar, put your drink in their hands and let them suggest some alternatives to your usual, according to your favourite liquor and personal preferences. Jazz plays in the early evenings, with a DJ spinning tunes to keep the party going as the evening wears on.

If you are looking to indulge, visit the Blind Pig Cigar Lounge, a dark luxurious lounge serving some of the finest quality cigars from Cuba, such as Montecristo and Cohiba. Don’t worry if you are not dressed for the occasion, the entrance to Blind Pig includes a selection of smoking jackets to protect your clothes from the pungent scent, as well as an opportunity to pick a fine malt to accompany your cigar. The lounge also has a small balcony area if you prefer to smoke under the stars. The staff at Speakeasy will even be happy to distil vodka or whisky for you, raising the alcohol proof and highlighting the flavours. It’s worth noting that reservations are required for an evening in the Blind Pig Cigar Lounge.
