This Bangkok Hotel is A Total Dining Destination

Awesome accommodations aside, Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok is the perfect spot to wine, dine and unwind.

Mar 7, 2022

Aside from its highly celebrated accommodations and renowned design, Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok is a perfect spot to wine, dine and unwind. While internationally inspired, the hotel also brings local goodness to the table. Each of its four distinct restaurants and bars beat to the thrum of the food-obsessed city. The element of surprise will tease your senses—authentic flavors as well as unexpected taste combinations you didn’t know you were craving. 

CRAFT – Coffee and Cocktail Community 

Go ahead, work around the clock. CRAFT pours handcrafted coffee, curates creative cocktails and serves craft beers in a stylish communal space. CRAFT is a lively social hub where creative minds can wander in, stop by and wind down. En route to the elevators that zooms up to the guestrooms, CRAFT is the designated pitstop to pick up a snack, to linger for a chat, or to chill out with a nightcap. Where early risers indulge in gourmet breakfast bites. Where coffee connoisseurs savor specialty drinks. Where cocktail enthusiasts enjoy creative concoctions. Where craft beer lovers quench their thirst. CRAFT hits all the right spots.

Ms.Jigger – Storied Sips with a Sophisticated Touch 

“If a message can fit into a bottle, then a story is poured into each of my cocktails.”

— Ms.Jigger

As the lady of the house, Ms.Jigger gives a warm welcome to her intimate cocktail bar where she crafts innovative and experimental concoctions. Alternatively, unwind at her cozy dining lounge that serves up Italian canapés such as Chicken Liver Pate Bruschetta and Mushroom Arancini served with authentic Italian tomato sauce. Timeless and tasteful, every drink is inspired by her worldly travels. Choose from an array of carefully crafted tipples, from small-batch spirits and bespoke wines to handcrafted cocktails. Even master the art of the perfect pour from the lady herself. Just like the drinks, every bite is crafted to intrigue the senses. Always reminiscing her journey in Italy, she imbues love and comfort into her Italian-heavy menu. Under her attention and care, Ms.Jigger is not only the right place for a drink but also a wise choice for a business lunch and a romantic first—or fiftieth— date.

Stock.Room – Your Friendly Neighborhood Grocerant 

Something is always cooking at Stock.Room. It is a gourmet grocerant to shop for artisanal groceries, see them get cooked and savor the tastes in a cool setting. The casual, cozy space boasts at least six pop-up food stalls, serving up sophisticated street-eats and such, like crazy cheeses and fresh seafood or made-to-order pasta. Stock.Room is everyone’s new favorite marketplace with all the local and foreign flavors. Stock.Room also serves as a culinary classroom where guests can have a hands-on experience cooking with the talented resident chefs. Situated on the 5th floor, Stock.Room is a vibrant, naturally lit venue and a go-to spot for pop-up restaurants, semi-private dining and social hangouts.

Bar.Yard – Urban backyard party

This is easily the coolest backyard party, buzzing with liveliness just underneath the clouds of Bangkok. Sky-high on the 40th floor of Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok, Bar.Yard is a rooftop garden and drinking oasis with a playful, tropical setting. While passing through the lush-green shrubs and flora, guests will also want to sway to the sweet beats spun by the DJ. Indulge in fun Latin-American cuisines, clink tiki drinks and dance the night away. Between fresh and fragrant sips, don’t forget to stop, admire and snap photos against an unobstructed 360-degree backdrop of the beloved Bangkok city. Whether it’s a weeknight or the weekend, Bar.Yard gives all the right reasons to stay out late. The taste of the summer flows through the ambiance as well as island spirits, classic cocktails and some serious music. With a crew of creative DJs spinning fresh, daily mixes and something always on, Bar.Yard is definitely designed for good times.
