The very first of its kind—with many more to come—this collaborative video series with 2Magazine is the brainchild of our close contributors Bank Tangjaitrong, the filmmaker, and Lauren Yates, our host. Lauren’s trademark web-zine, Ponytail Journal, was only the beginning of her success; an extension of her unique style and ideals led to the establishment of her very own clothing brand, W’menswear, among many other accomplishments.
With the vast selection of bars and restaurants that one finds in Bangkok, how do you know where to go? What is each cocktail bar’s focus? Equipped with her signature deadpan humor and wide-eyed curiosity, Lauren is the perfect person to navigate the rapid, ever-changing restaurant and cocktail bar scene. Together, we set out to explore the booming cocktail culture in Bangkok through the eyes of the owners, bartenders, and personalities: each episode centered around tailor-made questions for each establishment.
With Lauren at the helm, this video series sheds a light on what can be an overwhelming hospitality scene by highlighting the establishments that have set themselves apart. So sit back, relax, and let Lauren show you around, the ponytail way. Welcome to Cocktails with Ponytail at The Bamboo Bar, Mandarin Oriental Bangkok.
