Whether you are feeling blue or you are just fancy sipping on a serious cocktail drink, Evil Man Blue (EMB) is a good choice for you.
By Posh Wattanaporn
The purple and blue neon lights will bring you to the dimly lit, narrow bar with retro funky atmosphere. This place is like an American diner and underground jazz bar and unique. You are sure to find a beautiful spot to imbibe the Thonglor bar scene. The atmosphere in the secluded bar feels intimate and allows you to talk to the bartender. We met the head mixologist, Koravic (aka Jae). You can just tell him the spirit base you like and he can offer you the delicious cocktails to suit your mood. The man behind this successful bar is Liam Baer, an American mixologist who helps to create drinks.
Music: During normal hours, EMB plays funk, R&B, old school hip-hop. Every Wednesday to Saturday night you can enjoy beautiful live Jazz music by Dan Philips, a renowned jazz guitarist; and the Bangkok Edge Quartet.
Drinks: “This Monkey’s Gone to Heaven,” which is a mixture of banana-washed blended scotch, maple, chicory, Amaro, cinnamon and determination. For something refreshing, go for “The Honey Badger,” a combination of Rosemary-infused Bourbon, Yellow Chartreuse, honey, citrus, ginger and Vindication. Other masculine cocktails are “The Salad Day,” an interesting name that might catch attention from Salad lover. It’s a mixed between tomato washed gin, French Aperitif Liquor, Bianco Vermouth, and pink peppercorn.
