Remarkable Bangkok

By Chris Boyle

Elite Traveler has selected the most exclusive VIP experiences


Q Bar boasts the largest collection of spirits and cocktails in Bangkok and has a dedicated vodka freezer that keeps 75 types of vodka at a cool -19°C.

The bar also has 20 tequilas and more than 50 good quality whiskeys. For something sweet try the edible chocolate shot glass filled with Bailey’s Irish Cream, vodka and Kahlua. The bar hosts top international DJs and has regular jub chai (mixed soup) nights. The bar’s upstairs lounge, Q UP, has a spacious outdoor terrace and offers a wide range of shisha and fine Cuban Perdomo cigars. Matt Dillon, Colin Farrell and Owen Wilson have all visited Q Bar.


Thai Country Club

Managed by The Peninsula Hotels group the Thai Country Club opened in 1996 as a private members’ golf club; however, select overseas visitors are also welcome to play on this 18-hole, par-72 golf course.

Thai Country Club has hosted a number of prestigious golf tournaments and some of the greatest professional golfers have played here. The course has received a number of awards and has been declared the best course in Thailand and the best clubhouse in the Asia Pacific by Asian Golf Monthly Magazine.

Cuisine: Thai

Style/Ambiance: Learn to cook authentic Thai cuisine with chefs Dylan Jones and Thai-born Bo Songvisava at a private lesson for up to ten people in the Bo.lan restaurant’s kitchens.

Dylan and Bo trained under David Thompson at the Michelin-starred Nahm restaurant in London and produce traditional Thai dishes with contemporary twists. Like its cuisine, Bo.lan’s interior opts for authenticity and rejects clichéd Thai design. Located in an antique residential house Bo.lan showcases carefully selected traditional Thai items including kra-dongs (woven shallow baskets). Bo.lan has one private room for 15-20 people or the entire restaurant can be hired exclusively.
