One of Bangkok's most unique and distinguished bars, J.Boroski is also its most hidden. This New York-styled speakeasy is the personal bar of Joseph Boroski, the "mixsultant" as he calls himself, who is a legend in Bangkok and elsewhere, having created and designed just about every cocktail menu for all the top bars in the city. Boroski has travelled to dozens of countries around the world, creating, sampling, and learning about the art of fine drinking, and his Bar and Hospitality School in Bangkok produces some of Bangkok's most outstanding bartenders. What started as the training area for his school later turned into a hangout for friends, and eventually expanded to become a dark and intimate speakeasy, completely unique in how it runs. There is no drink menu here. Rather, you tell the mixologists if you like it sweet, sour, or otherwise, and watch them create a drink for you. There also is no sign outside, and the bar lies down a dead end alley that is pretty challenging to find unless you've got a map or have come before. Media isn't allowed to list J. Boroski's address, you'll either have to contact the bar or have a friend who knows it bring you in, and it remains a bar for serious drink lovers, so party hounds and trend lovers should head elsewhere.
