Step behind the sliding door and you enter the aptly named Rabbit Hole, where you can go to another dimension with the wildly imaginative and superbly mixed drinks on offer. While many a great novel speakeasy or mixology-mastered bars open in Bangkok, they often don't last, subdued by high rents, high consumption taxes, and just plain old competition. Yet Rabbit Hole has persevered. Led by a quartet of master bartenders, all of whom have won awards and mixed drinks for some of the city's best bars, Rabbit Hole was named Bar of the Year in 2018, as well as being slotted at #34 on Asia's 50 Best Bars 2019 list. The setting here is industrial speakeasy, and you can either sit downstairs and watch the bartenders in action or else head up to the more cozy second floor, where you can overlook all of the proceedings or else settle in to a quiet corner. The extensive drink menu has creations like the Mad Hatter, made with gin, passionfruit, absinth, smoked soda, and torch-dried orange. Also popular is the wild Cry Me To the Moon, concocted with white truffle oil fat-washed gin, apple juice, and pandan syrup. Novelty reigns supreme here with the 9:45pm (the time the drink was created), which features bourbon, coconut shrub, vinegar, and even kombu dashi thrown into the mix! While there are live DJs and house music getting the pretty crowd of Thonglor moving on most nights, do yourself a favor and come here to indulge in the drinking, as it's creative, talented, and unique.

Just up towards the second one, you'll find the Ainu Japanese izakaya restaurant on your left. Rabbit Hole hides without a sign behind the sliding door here next to the restaurant."
