PAnthera GROUP FOOD & BEVERAGE
When people think of craft beer in Bangkok, only one name comes to mind: Craft.
The open-air restaurant with its retractable roof on Sukhumvit Soi 23 has been the Number One location for draught and bottled craft beer since 2014. With 40 taps, it offers the widest selection of draught craft beer in Bangkok, and its book-sized menu includes dozens more craft brews in bottles and cans as well as commercial beers, ciders, and soft drinks.
But Craft is more than just beer. Its food menu includes speciality items not found anywhere else in Bangkok, perhaps all of Thailand. This includes “the best pastrami sandwich in 14,000 kilometres”, a home-cured, hand-carved pile of New York-style pastrami on rye bread with New York homemade dill pickles, Craft’s menu also offers gourmet, thin-crust pizza baked to order, a range of classic burgers, and tasty Thai favourites.
Guests can order South Beach-style street food tacos from Slanted Taco or French-roasted chicken from Birds Rotisserie. They can also order a cigar from Whisgars and enjoy it in the open-air environment.
Weekends are party time at Craft, with resident DJ Max spinning the latest hits, classics from the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s, and just about anything requested by patrons.
Craft’s ambience lends to the festive feel. Laid out like a backyard patio deck, Craft sits under a canopy of lush trees on a quieter stretch of Soi 23. Although just a few minute’s walk to the famous Soi Cowboy, the Terminal 21 shopping mall, and BTS/MRT stations, sitting at one of Craft’s wooden tables or kicking back on a low chair makes it easy to forget you’re in the heart of Bangkok’s business centre.
