Welcome our new Group Bar Manager!
Supawit ‘Palm’ Muttaratana, our new Group Bar Manager, is an industry veteran in the Bangkok bar scene since 2009. While working at The St. Regis Bangkok, the City’s foremost luxury hotel, he has fallen in love with the art of cocktails. His passion and years of practicing earned him the winner of Diageo World Class Thailand 2012 and led him to compete in the Global Finals in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Against 40 other finalists, he was placed 13th best in the world.
Palm made the next step and became Brand Ambassador for Diageo Reserve Thailand. Conducting trainings for up-and-coming bartenders and consulting for various establishments, he was the person behind many of Bangkok’s successful stories.
Missing the action at the bar, this ‘man on the background’ is now joining Vesper Cocktail Bar & Restaurant (No. 17 bar in ASIA’S 50 BEST BARS and no. 1 bar in Thailand) and il Fumo Charcoal & Cocktail as Group Bar Manager.
‘Vesper has always been my favourite bar in Bangkok for its sophisticated drinks and attention to details, and I am very excited to join the team’, says Palm. Of his bartending style, ‘I do not prefer making flashy drinks or being fanciful in my approach. Just a clean, classical style with strong focus on techniques and ingredients used. A twist on classic cocktails that can make my guests have a truly memorable night.’
