“Good ambiance, perfect for a drink with friends!”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

The Alchemist (named after Coehlo's novel I guess since the walls are covered by his quotes) is a nice and small bar. Staff is friendly, some cocktails are quite original and very good, the ambiance is good, music is ok but not too loud which is perfect if you want to enjoy a drink while chatting with your friends!

“Great little bar tucked away off Soi 11”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

This little bar is tucked away in the little U shaped alley off Soi 11 behind Cheap Charlies. Along with some great restaurants, this place turned out to be a real hidden gem amongst all the cheap beer bars in this area.Great cocktails, top atmosphere but only a tiny place so get there early for a seat. We had great service from our waitress, from joining tables together to acommodate our group to drink recomendations. Not the chepest place to drink in Bangkok but if you want great drinks in a nice setting, give it a go.

“Nicer atmosphere than its neighbors”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

It's a fairly swanky place for the u-soi on soi 11, and is competitively priced for drinks. The staff are super friendly and they communicate well. It can get a bit crowded during peak hours because of the space available, but I suppose that's a good problem to have. The owner seems pretty generous with her promotions and she's in tune with what her clientele are looking for. It's a nice place to start the night. I'm a bit puzzled by their mode of returning your change in a cup, but hey, whatever works. I will be back again.

Reviewed 11 January 2014 via mobile

Would totally go back here.
Amazing drinks. Loved the sangria!!! Prices are high for Thailand, but it's a groovy little spot to be seen.
