Chinatown welcomes new bar with wine focus, ‘Independence’

Bar-hopping through Chinatown has a new stop – and it specializes in wines. 

Opening just last week, Independence Bar welcomes patrons with graffiti-covered walls, easy-going vibes and well-stocked booze shelves.

Patrons should expect a variety of wines from traditional, natural, fortified, vermouth, and, of course, wine-based cocktails. A full list of signature cocktails will be available soon. 

The owners are familiar faces from Asia Today, Teens of Thailand, Tax, and Black King Bar. Last week, the venue hosted guest shifts from New Delhi and Singapore.

Forget the typical fancy cocktail bars, you’ll feel like you’re drinking in an abandoned building with graffiti-covered walls — a dark, grungy vibe with an unfinished feel.

Independence Bar is located on Maitri Chit Road a few minutes on foot from MRT Hua Lamphong.
