When the thirst hits, you’re never far from relief in The Fields. Between bars, food vendors, and good old H2O at the water refill stations, you can keep cool at all hours. This year, we’re putting a little more emphasis on the first feature of that list—here are some of the friends and family bringing their flavor to our bars for 2019.
Philtration and AHA Saloon Saloon (TW) at Living Village with Stoli
A soon-to-be-opened modern apothecary in the heart of Bangkok makes its first appearance outside of the alleys of Siam at Living Village, our newest space at Wonderfruit. Parked in the perfect position near Creature Stage, the welcoming bar will host guest bartenders Jason Lu and Victor Yang from Taipei’s AHA Saloon, #24 on Asia’s 50 Best Bars for 2019. Living Village will be buzzing with more of what it was designed for—taste, sound, and the senses—when this international team links up at the bar with Stoli in the speed rack.
Opening hours at Living Village:
Friday – Saturday 5:00pm – 1:00am
Sunday 5:00pm – 11:00pm
The Bamboo Bar and Friends at Omelette with Hendrick’s Gin
The #1 bar in Thailand and #8 on the Asia’s 50 Best Bars list in 2019, The Bamboo Bar at Mandarin Oriental is a jazz and cocktail institution like no other. Bar Manager Jamie Rhind has helmed the iconic station since 2016, and is a big part of its current success. He’s bringing some of his friends from around Asia to serve the classics and the more creatives at Omelette, with Hendrick’s Gin at the top of the menu.
Opening hours at Omelette:
Thursday 3:00pm – 5:00am
Friday – Sunday 1:00pm – 5:00am
Philtration and Pussyfoot Saloon (KR) at SOT with Monkey Shoulder
The same Philtration you may recognize from Living Village makes a surprise second appearance at SOT. Philtration’s chief of all things drinkable Shavinraj “Fairy Godfather” Gopinath will be behind the bar making a scene with guest bartenders Dominykas and Gavin from Seoul’s up-and-coming Pussyfoot Saloon. Get ready for drinks to match the big beats of everyone’s favorite urban playground, SOT—all served up with a little Monkey Shoulder magic.
Opening hours at SOT:
Thursday – Sunday 2:00pm – 5:00am
Bootleggers x Proof and Company at Neramit
Find all things independent, high-shelf, and small-batch when Bootleggers Trading Company partners with two of Asia-Pacific’s biggest names at Neramit, the bamboo home base for The Fields. Bobby Carey, winner of multiple national Bar of the Year & Bar Team of the Year awards in Australia, steps up with Tom Hogan of Singapore’s Anti:Dote to serve a menu as daring as it is delightful.
Neramit Brunch Club
The brewsmiths from Hillpop Sparkling Coffee and the brunch geniuses from Casa Lapin come together in our bamboo home base to serve survival breakfasts and drinks of both the caffeinated and cocktail variety.
Opening hours at Neramit:
Friday – Sunday 8:00am – 5:00pm
Moonlight Lounge with SangSom
Thailand’s go-to rum for all-hours tippling is celebrating the energy of the evening with Moonlight Lounge, a relaxed venue for moon gazing and spirit raising. Take a piece of the experience home with you, by ordering a limited edition Wonderfruit x Moonlight Lounge bucket of drinks, and keep the bucket. You can even use it to get a discount on your next SangSom bucket refill.
Opening hours at Moonlight Lounge
Friday – Sunday 2:00pm – 2:00am
Fentiman’s and Perrier, just about everywhere
Fentiman’s craft sodas and Perrier mineral water will be close at hand behind the bar, to top off your mixed drinks and creative concoctions with a more refined flavor. Fentiman’s and Perrier work closely with the bar scenes in Thailand and further afield to create new and exciting combinations with their premium mixers. You’ll find both at Wonderfruit’s bars.
