With Distil, we’ve taken a classic hotel cocktail bar, and elevated it—literally and figuratively. A little dark, a little moody, and very urban-chic, Distil is the kind of place you might expect to find on the street level of a stately New York City hotel—but here that bar stool stands 64 stories above Bangkok.
Distil is a lebua original—our grand old lady. She’s been eclipsed by Sky Bar and joined by a few new kids on the block—whisky bar Alfresco 64 next door; Pink Bar and lebua no. 3 downstairs—but somehow she always manages to stay relevant (that’s how you know she’s a classic). Of course, it doesn’t hurt that Distil’s west-facing terrace is still the best place at lebua to watch the sunset. And that’s saying a lot in a destination blessed with these extraordinary views.
Distil is also lebua’s best spot to smoke a cigar (we have an exclusive selection of Davidoff cigars to choose from), or to have a cocktail before dinner at our two-Michelin-star Mezzaluna, just one floor up.
Whether you like your cocktails classic or a touch more creative, Distil delivers. In fact, Distil is widely considered to be among the best cocktail bars in the city.
Credit for that goes to our mixologists, who start with premium spirits like Havana Club three-year-old rum and Plymouth gin aged in French oak barrels, then shake, muddle and stir with nectars, spices, purées and liqueurs. The finished product will have you thinking they’re equal parts mixologist and magician.
