BANGKOK | Ba Hao 八號 is a small bar in Bangkok’s trendy Chinatown neighbourhood. It’s inspired by 1970s Hong Kong, with an aesthetic that evokes the works of Hong Kong director, producer, and screenwriter, Wong Kar-wai. Walk inside the converted 1950s shophouse, and you’ll find a space that’s full of atmosphere.
Visit for Cantonese inspired cocktails and bar snacks, with threads of Thai influence weaved throughout. In particular, the Yaowaraj cuisine that developed in Bangkok’s Chinatown as Chinese immigrants moved into the neighbourhood.
Cocktails feature ingredients like Chinese ginseng, five spices, and mashed plum. Try the Drunken Mistress 醉情婦, a blend of gin and lychee with star anise and plum. To eat, it’s things like prawn toast, duck wontons in chilli oil, and tan tan noodles.
If you’re looking for something non-alcoholic, Ba Hao’s menu features a great selection of mocktails, and loose leaf teas.
