Acclaimed Chef Ton joins his brother Tam and local cocktail expert Ronnaporn to open sleek new bar
November 16th, 2023
Expanding on his already impressive assemblage of fine dining restaurants in Bangkok that include Michelin-starred Le Du (also #1 on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list for 2023) and Nusara (#3 ranked on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2023), in May this year Chef Ton joined with his sommelier brother Tam Tassanakajohn, and two-time winner of Diageo World Class Thailand Best Bartender of the Year – Ronnaporn Kanivichaporn – to open Nuss Bar.
Occupying a compact space adjacent to the entrance of Nusara restaurant, Nuss Bar exudes a stylish luxe with its plush red velvet furnishings complementing the red-themed interior decor – and dramatic local artwork. Overlooking the renowned Wat Pho through a full-width portal-style window connects the bar with the Old Town neighborhood.
At the bar, expect well-executed cocktails from the drinks list created by Ronnaporn – featuring his interpretations of classic cocktails – highlighted by the Three Friends Negroni; Cashew Sidecar; and Palm Daiquiri – all elevated with local flavor profiles imparted by local culinary ingredients, and herbal infusions.
Nuss Bar opens daily – except Tuesday – with drinks being served from 5 pm until midnight.
