“Surprisingly good food. Expensive but strong drinks.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

The live music can be a bit hit and miss, but its w great late afternoon hangout for a few drinks and some really tasty food. Ribs, pizza, salads all presented very nicely and down right delicious, very impressed.

“Great Place, great food great service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

This is as good as it gets n sukhumvit. A no-hooker zone that has great music, great staff and surprisingly great food! We love the new menu and pizza! Best in the area hands down. This is a great place to chill, hear live jazz and not get hassled! We are regulars and have been since the beginning.

“Great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

It is good location on Sukhumvit area. The drink & price is inexpensive. Service is very good especially thank you to GAGA.. She is the best. Always make us laugh and always have good time to see her. The music is a bit loud. If you would like to have conversation you should sit outside..

“Great bar, excellent Sunday evening music”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

We stumbled into Apoteka quite by chance and were just wowed by the excellent music, beautiful vintage apothecary decor and friendly and attentive staff. An unexpectedly wonderful evening - thanks to everyone for being so friendly and welcoming! Whilst we didn't get round to the food during this visit, we certainly will next time. Don't miss this excellent venue...

“Wrong location on tripadvisor map. Fantastic place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

First of all, the location on the map provided by tripadvisor is wrong! Seems they never get it right with the location. We wanted to visit this place based on the recommendations on tripadvisor. The tripadvisor app took us no where near the place and we finally gave up of ever finding this place. We decided to wander a bit and by accident we found Apoteka!

We already had dinner and came here for a drink. Boy, the atmosphere was so good here and the band was just wonderful. Hats off for the jazz musicians who came from all the globe. You guys are the best. We didn't really like Bangkok with the rudeness (yes, rudeness), crowd, begging for tips, dishonest taxi drivers and tourist traps. If we would come back to Bangkok, this place would be the reason.
