A progressive rock ‘n roll dive bar from Hong Kong will pop up in Bangkok this month. 

Known as a raucous party spot with top-notch drinks made by all-female talents, The Pontiac will hit three bars in Bangkok from Feb. 24 to Feb. 27.

Bar manager Jen Queen and lead bartender Gwen Chuas will host their first appearance at breezy Phrom Phong spot The Deck Bangkok on Feb. 24, Fatboy Izakaya on Feb. 25, and Peppina on Feb. 27. 

The grungy, American-style cocktail bar opened in August 2015 on Old Bailey Street in Hong Kong. Inspired by the neighborhood bars of Portland, Brooklyn, and San Francisco, the place is helped by award-winning bartender Beckaly Franks and is run by an all-female bar team.

The Pontiac was ranked 33rd in the most recent Asia’s 50 Best Bars list.
