The St. Regis Bangkok


Monthly “The Art of Drinking Masterclass” led by Bar Manager Volkan Ibil





16 January 2022, Bangkok, Thailand - The St. Regis Bangkok invites guests to immerse themselves in the art of drinking with a cocktail master class on the third Saturday of every month.

Led by The St. Regis Bar Manager Volkan Ibil, the 90-minute experience from 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM pays homage to the glamor of the original House of Astor, where the traditions around the art of drinking began in 1932 at the famed King Cole Bar at The St. Regis New York.

Starting off with a Champagne sabering ritual at 6:00 PM, nibbles are then served alongside the bar’s signature Violet Hour Martini, which elevates gin, aromatized wine, orange and violette liqueurs, and orange bitters into a delicious work of drinkable art served in bespoke glassware specially designed to accompany cocktail enthusiasts as they transition from daytime work to nighttime leisure.

The Violet Hour Martini is named after “The Violet Hour", a daily dedicated ritual at The St. Regis Bangkok that is timed as much to mark as to coincide with the purple sky at the end of the day and the beginning of the evening.

Up on the bar counter, individual cocktail stations are set up for guests to learn to make one of Volkan’s personal signature beverages while learning about the New York cocktail culture and how it has inspired the bar program at The St. Regis Bar.

Volkan Ibil has experience creating works of art through cocktails at numerous bars in prestigious hotels around the world, including those in France, Hong Kong, Turkey and China where he worked as Head Bartender at the Four Seasons Hotel in Guangzhou. Volkan is now poised to bring his passion for cocktail making to life for you to experience at The St. Regis Bangkok.

The Art of Drinking Masterclass is offered from 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM on the third Saturday of every month, starting from February 2023 onwards for THB 788 net per guest. A maximum of 10 guests can be accommodated per class.

The St. Regis Bar, open daily 12:00 PM. - 11:45 PM. and enjoy live entertainment every Thursday to Saturday from 08.30 PM – 11:00 PM.  Advanced reservations are highly recommended.
