An impressive recent addition to the luxury hospitality market in Bangkok, The St.Regis Bangkok continues the tradition of elegance, glamour and luxurious accommodations that commenced in 1904 with the founding of the original St Regis New York by John Jacob Astor IV. The St.Regis brand has branched out worldwide over the subsequent century, establishing and maintaining benchmarks for the highest levels of luxury accommodation and customised guest services. The St. Regis Bangkok is housed on levels 12 – 24 of a striking new 47 level contemporary mixed-use tower. Situated in a prime location in central Bangkok, overlooking the open green fields of the Royal Bangkok Sports Club and the central Bangkok skyline, the hotel is ideally located for both business and leisure.
The St.Regis Bangkok offers guests and residents of Bangkok a number of outstanding choices for dining and entertainment- including fine dining at the Viu restaurant, the more casual atmosphere of contemporary Italian cuisine at JoJo, and refined drinks at both the St.Regis Bar and Decanter.
Decanter was conceptualised in the tradition of a luxurious gentlemen’s club- offering a private, refined and luxurious space for enjoying fine wines. Contemporary Asian influences have been incorporated into the decor to reflect the culture of the region. Entry to Decanter is through towering, heavy timber doors, flanked on either side by full height, glass fronted cellars, housing many of the superlative wines. The interior is arranged into three connecting spaces- the Centre Room featuring a serving bar and armchair seating, plus two rooms on either side- the East Room and the West Room- both of which can be utilised as private spaces for intimate wine tastings or dinners. The decor of Decanter features timber floors, large woven rugs, high curved ceilings, and furnishing combinations of black leather sofas and richly upholstered club chairs. Full height glass fronted cellars embedded into the walls are a feature in all the rooms.
As expected, Decanter has a most impressive cellar, with a selection of over 300 wines from both Old World and New World wine regions. The wines range from the truly exceptional vintage Bourdeaux wines of Chateau Latour, Chateau Margaux, and Chateau Mouton Rothschild, and classic Italian Toscanas, to the modern styles of New World wines from the Napa Valley in California and the premier regions of Australia. The wine list runs to 32 pages- encompassing all major varieties of red wines, white wines, champagnes, sparkling wines and dessert wines. There is also a good “house selection” of wines available by the glass and bottle at very reasonable prices for the quality offered- from B300 per glass and B1,500 per bottle. The wines can be complimented with premium cheese boards and tapas dishes.
Decanter hold regular wine tastings to introduce wine connisseurs to classic vintages and new labels.
For the discerning wine drinker, Decanter provides a truly exceptional selection of wines that can be enjoyed in the discrete elegance that has made the St. Regis brand a world-wide standard of excellence.
