Contemporary cocktail bar in Bangkok by OPUS restaurant & Italian mixologist Michele Montauti
Among the notable Bangkok bar openings in 2016, MIKYS Cocktail Bar has become a popular destination for a fashionable and discerning local crowd – attracted by polished cocktails, gourmet Italian bar cuisine, and the sociable vibe. Located in an inviting glass fronted space in front of the long-established OPUS Wine Bar on Pan Road in the vibrant Silom precinct of Bangkok, MIKYS is a partnership between the team behind OPUS and Italian mixologist Michele Montauti – most recently making an impression on Bangkok’s cocktail scene while heading up the bar of the W Bangkok’s House on Sathorn restaurant. At MIKYs the focus is on meticulously crafted classic and signature cocktails, complemented by a menu of delicious Italian bar bites from the OPUS chefs. The sociable vibe at MIKYS is elevated by an eclectic soundtrack, with live jazz on Friday nights a weekly highlight.
Design Floor-to-ceiling glass wraps around three sides of MIKYS – providing a garden outlook and spacious feeling. The open-plan space features a long white-tiled bar counter spanning the back of the room, while a contemporary decor of well-spaced communal high tables, sofa settings and seats at the bar counter, comfortably accommodate guests. An outdoor terrace offers additional seating options.
Cocktails & Bar Menu Headlining the drinks list are signature cocktails such as JULIE – made with Broker’s Gin, Mancino Bianco, Earl Grey tea, jasmine syrup, lime juice, egg white; and well-executed classic cocktails include Negroni, Old Fashioned and Martinis. Other drinks options include a tight selection of sparkling wine labels, red and white wines, plus the impressive selection of premium and small-producer spirits. Bar foods created by the OPUS chefs comprise a menu of Italian and international bar dishes – sharing platters of Cold Cuts, Cheese, or Jamon Iberico Bellota Ham; and Beef or Chicken Burgers are among the popular dishes.
MIKYS Cocktail Bar opens Monday to Saturday from 6pm – with a weekday Happy Hour between 6pm and 8pm offering Buy One Get One Free cocktails – and on Friday nights live jazz musicians.
