Bangkok Nightlife: the Beer Vault

While beer etiquette in Thailand may raise a few eyebrows—it’s perfectly acceptable, if not expected, to put ice in your beer and sip it in thimble-sized glasses—the country nevertheless has had a long relationship with the brew; Singha, the local lager, debuted in 1934. Now, at the newly opened Four Points by Sheraton Bangkok, the Thai capital has its ultimate beer bar: the Beer Vault (Sukhumvit Soi 15; 66-2/309-3000). Outfitted with black leather couches, the sleek space offers 48 bottled brands, half a dozen draft beers, and a selection of beer cocktails like the Skip and Go Naked (muddled with gin and a dash of grenadine). Better yet, with tastes and temperatures monitored by a dedicated “Beer Keeper,” you can rest assured that there will be no need for ice. –Leisa Tyler
