1826 Mixology & Rooftop Bar is located near the BTS station Asok and not far from the MRT station Sukhumvit. To get there you only have to remember the digits 1826. Number 18 stands for Soi 18, the street where this rooftop bar is located. Number 26 stands for the floor, in this case the roof of the Rembrandt Hotel & Suites in Bangkok. 1826 Mixology & Rooftop Bar is small but nice and has a nice view while enjoying one of the best cocktails of your holiday.

Rembrandt Hotel & Suites
You will find this intimate rooftop bar with 45 seats in/on the Rembrandt Hotel & Suites Bangkok. Rembrandt Hotel & Suites has been in Bangkok for more than 25 years and is highly rated on several review sites. Not for nothing!
The rooftop bar 1826
1826 Mixology & Rooftop Bar opened in early 2019, a welcome change from the sky and bars of Bangkok. 1826 is a small almost homely rooftop bar. You can sit inside or outside, so you can also visit this rooftop bar when it rains. From the roof terrace you can see the Benjasiri Park. We were very charmed by this intimate rooftop bar and drank one of the best cocktails we have had so far!
On the terrace are several benches and chairs. You just choose what suits you here. The floor is made of artificial grass which gives the terrace a fresh look. In the middle is the bar with a number of bar stools, here we saw how the cocktails were prepared with extreme precision.
The word Mixology comes from the mixologist. A mixologist is a bartender who knows everything about a good cocktail. The mixologist knows the ingredients and preparation method of the classics but also of modern cocktails by heart. But a good mixologist is more! He/she also creates new cocktails and even new ingredients. A good mixologist is creative and knows certain natural processes. It is quite an art to make a really good cocktail!
DID YOU KNOW?
At 1826 you even can order very good mocktails. A good mocktail is more difficult to make according to master mixologist Stephen Pinto.
1826 Mixology & Rooftop Bar is the brainchild of Stephen Pinto. A passionate and fantastic mixologist who was born in Bombay, India and then developed into a mixologist in Dubai. We got to know Stephen as a very open and warm personality. In the few hours that we were at 1826 he taught us a lot about the profession and his passion Mixology. All the modern cocktails on the menu of 1826 were created by Stephen himself. It will not surprise you that Stephen has opened his own bar La Taperia 2.0 in the meantime. Unfortunately for us not in Thailand but in Zanzibar.
The cocktails at 1826
Stephen Pinto’s creations are fortunately still made and sold in the 1826 Mixology & Rooftop Bar. Each and every one of them are deliciously tasty pieces of art. Of course we couldn’t taste them all but the cocktails we drank here were excellent. Like the Hacienda de Fashion, based on the Mexican restaurant on the eleventh floor. The cocktail is served in a glass bell filled with smoke.
A very tasty cocktail with the following ingredients; Patron XO Cafe Dark Cocoa, Sebusca Mezcal, cinnamon agave syrup and homemade chocolate and coffee bitters.
DID YOU KNOW?
All 1826 Mixology & Rooftop Bar cocktails conceived by Stephen Pinto have a link to the Rembrandt Hotel & Suites including the three internal restaurants or Thailand itself.
As we had skipped dessert earlier in the evening during our dinner we also ordered a Tiramisu Martini. A (not too) sweet cocktail based on the Italian restaurant Da Vinci. Finally we let Stephen surprise us. Since we had already visited Italy and Mexico with our cocktail trip it was now time for India. The last country of which a restaurant can be found in the Rembrandt Hotel.
Are you an artistic or creative personality and would you like to share this on Instagram? Then order the Holi anyway. You can decorate it yourself with a brush and three colors of liquid. This way you can create a real Rembrandt during your visit to 1826. Another beautiful creation is “The Hanging garden of Kuseong”.
The last cocktail Stephen wanted us to taste was the 1826 Punch. Not inspired by India but by the Thai islands in the south. We are from Thailand Magazine after all, he said laughing, well there he had a fair point. Again a very good and tasty cocktail!
We had already eaten, so tasting the delicious snacks on the intimate roof terrace of the Rembrandt wasn’t an option. But we did see our neighbours enjoying the dishes they were served. The bites, like the Chicken Tikka Puff and the Prawn Roti come from the kitchen of the Indian restaurant Rang Mahal next door.
In the hotel you will also find three super good restaurants. On the eleventh floor you’ll find two of the three restaurants. The Italian restaurant Da Vinci and Mexicano if you are hungry for typical and authentic Mexican dishes. Next to 1826 on the 26th floor you will find the award winning Rang Mahal. A very well acknowledged Indian restaurant which has enjoyed a name and fame in Bangkok for over twenty years. If you want to eat something before your visit to 1826 Mixology & Rooftop Bar, you can choose from Italian, Mexican or Indian dishes.
Check out the menu with the Indian bites and the unique cocktails like the Sundowner’s that you can order cheaper during 17:00 and 18:26 (sunset).
