A booze-soaked event is making its comeback in the capital city in November. 

Thailand’s only trade show for the beleaguered bar industry, the Bangkok Bar Show is returning after skipping two years during the COVID-19 bad times. At the event, patrons can sample more than 30 brands and meet dozens of bartenders flying in for guest shifts, parties, and even “fine drinking.” 

Seminars will cover worthy topics like using plant-based ingredients in cocktails, coffee-based cocktails and “how to build a rubbish bar.” The full schedule is available online.

Tickets are THB300 per day when purchased online or THB500 at the door. Both tickets include two drinks from any booth.

The event will run noon until 7pm, Nov. 4-6 at the Henri Dunant Hall of the Royal Bangkok Sports Club. The venue is located on Henri Dunant Road and can be reached from BTS Ratchadamri. 

Prior to the event, an opening party will be held Nov. 3 at Zuma Bangkok.

The Bangkok Bar Show was founded by Niks Anuman-rajadhon (Teens of Thailand, Asia Today) and Colin Chia (Find the Locker Room) and was held for the first time in 2019.
