Alone Together: Speakeasy bar serves smooth jazz and classic cocktails with a twist

Still think there’s a stigma against people who go to bars for a drink (or two) by themselves? This ultra-chill new space may just change your mind. 

The teams behind two popular Bangkok speakeasies, Ku Bar and Sugar Ray, have joined forces to create a new cocktail den in town. Like many before it, the bar’s design also follows a speakeasy-style concept, but also adds live jazz music to the mix, as well as a (soon-to-open) cigar lounge.

The spirit of drinking solo is encouraged in the name of the bar: Alone Together. It’s housed inside a two-story shophouse on Soi Sukhumvit 31, offering not only strong, spirit-forward cocktails, but also smooth live jazz music performed by local jazz group The Pomelo Town and bebop talents Podchara Quartet. They play four nights per week.

The cocktails focus on the classics, concocted from local ingredients and with a subtle twist. One of the easiest-to-make, the Screwdriver, goes beyond mixing vodka with orange juice here: instead, the Frozen Screwdriver (THB420) makes use of three citrus fruits commonly found in Thailand — sweet orange, tangerine and pomelo — and blends them with ice until they’re perfectly slushy, ideal to sip during summer. 

A comforting winter drink (that’s quite hard to find in Thailand), the Hot White Russian (THB380) is a combination of homemade coffee liqueur, coffee and soy cream. Bourbon enthusiasts can jump into the Cold Fashioned (THB420), a new take on the Old Fashioned that mixes bourbon and bitters with black cardamom and raw cane sugar, and served along sliced lemon and lime zest for an extra refreshing edge. 

The cigar lounge, set to take over the second floor of the venue, will open in the near future.

Alone Together is open from 7pm until late every day. It is located in Soi Sukhumvit 31 and can be reached from either BTS Phrom Phong or Asoke or MRT Sukhumvit.
