The bar scene in Bangkok has just gotten a littkle bit Funkier ith the opening of F*nkytown (pronounced Funkytown), which has just opened in the heart of Bangkok’s bustling Phrom Phong.
Nestled on the 4th and 5th floors, with rooftop alfresco, F*nkytown offers guests drinks that are rooted in locality & seasonality, that have utilised close-looped techniques, sustainable practices and diverse ingredients sourced across the region.
The Sarnies Group’s first cocktail bar concept, the bar is helmed by Pae Ketumarn, whose award-winning career spanned two World’s 50 Best Bars: Sober Company in Shanghai and The SG Club in Tokyo.
Developed on a funkiness scale of 1 to 5, where guests can work their way through the list and get more adventurous with big flavours ― the programme aims to be inclusive yet innovative through its unconventional expressions of familiar flavours in food.
Start with the Tokyo Banana (funk level: 2), followed by a refreshing appetiser Caesar Salad (funk level: 4), and get your liquid street food supper with Som Tum (funk level: 5). For the non-drinkers, half of the signature cocktails are available as mocktails that are just as funky so get ready to have just as much fun.
Classic enthusiasts will also find twisted classics such as the Long Island Thai Tea with secret-recipe yuzu cola, something to get funky with like the Cold Brew Martini with coffee kombucha, and a solid end to the night with Sundae Old-Fashioned with kinako and black sugar.
And true to its name, F*nkytown spins the funkiest music. Playlists cover funk, soul, R&B and 80s disco, with some of Bangkok’s hottest vinyl and digital DJs spinning from Thursdays to Saturdays, making it one of the hottest destinations to unwind in Bangkok.
