From humble beginnings in 1953 in what is now the hotel’s renowned Authors’ Wing, The Bamboo Bar grew in size and reputation to become an international legend. In late 2014, the bar closed for an extensive renovation, intended to propel this iconic establishment into the future whilst preserving its unique history and unique character.
The beverage and liquor concept has been created by Mandarin Oriental’s award winning mixologist team, with Bamboo Bar Originals retaining their signature status on the cocktail list along with classics mixed according to their original recipes. The Bamboo Bar’s Flavour Cocktails are masterful blends of legacy and tradition yet with modernity and innovation and are set to become legends in their own right.

The Bamboo Bar Reviews
Live Jazz, an incredible array of noble bottles and bartenders that could mix anything. Intimate and cozy, with far more tables than bar space. The British Beverage Manager made an incredible "Dark & ... more »

Great ambiance, legendary bar more than 50 years old. Cocktail s are great and reasonable in price comparable to other 5 star establishment. The service is great. It was a piano night had it been the jazz night it would have been excellent.
A magical colonial bar located within the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, full of period furniture and thoughtful artefacts and live jazz every night! The bar oozes tasteful opulence and refined class. The list of wines and spirits available is extensive, and they have an ever-changing selection of original cocktails on offer, as well as all the classics. There is also a very nice cigar lounge! Although seating is limited, there are seating areas on the veranda outside the bar that offer the ability to still hear the music inside and enjoy more conversation when the music is playing. That said, I advise arriving before 2030 to get a good spot in the bar to see the band, however the staff are very attentive and can allocate you a table when it becomes available if you choose to sit outside first. A great spot to go to for some serenity and good music away from the hustle of downtown.
