The Sathorn and Silom area of Bangkok is particularly popular with expats and tourists due to the numerous tourist attractions and proximity to the financial district. On top of that, the many BTS and MRT stations in the vicinity make it particularly accessible. Naturally, this has encouraged many local wine bars and restaurants to sprout up.
We’ll give you a rundown of some of our best wine bars in Sathorn and Silom.
Scarlett Wine Bar & Restaurant
Address: Pullman Bangkok Hotel G, 188 Silom, Bangrak, Bangkok; +66 23524000
Featuring a wine list of over 250 old and new world labels, this wine bar rotates through its list of wines weekly, 15 at a time. Instead of listing their wines by region, they’re listed by grape type. It’s a much easier classification system that enables wine novices to choose the perfect wine to accompany their meal. The restaurant serves up succulent steaks that will satisfy even the most demanding meat-lover. The bone marrow with shallot & black pepper is a menu highlight that pairs well with red wine.
Go for the delicious food and drink on offer, and stay for the spectacular view of the city’s skyline. Scarlett is the ideal venue for a special occasion!
Address:118/2 Sathorn Soi 12, Bangkok, Thailand +66 22347749
This local wine bar and restaurant serves one of the best menus in the Sathorn and Silom area. The chef, Tim Butler, plans his menu according to the seasons to take advantage of the freshest ingredients he can get his hands on.
They serve up a decadent menu of premium items, including Ohmi Wagyu nuggets in tonkatsu sauce and caviar, DIY uni nachos and pig’s head, deep fried and served half or whole. Two of their signature dishes are the scallop with yuzu koshu and crispy rice, and the irresistible smoked bacon bao.
When it comes to choosing wine, we recommend chatting with their experienced sommelier, Andreas Pergher, who will happily suggest the ideal pairing.

This Japanese-themed restaurant and bar looks as if it was lifted directly off the streets of Tokyo’s Shibuya district. This high-end bar and restaurant takes great pride in showing off the skills of its barmen, who can not only serve up a mean cocktail, but even carve out giant balls of ice to go along with it!
The restaurant serves a varied menu, including pizza, cuttlefish pickled in salt with red pepper, Japanese-style omelet, salted cod roe, and many more items. Despite the impressive decor and sharply dressed barmen, the prices here are surprisingly affordable for the ambiance and service you get in return.
