  • Cocktails with an electronic beat...

Unwind with fine tunes and cocktails on Saturday as St Regis Bar serves up cocktails by renowned Japanese mixologist Shingo Gokan and melodious sounds by superstar DJ Ravin from Buddha Bar in Paris.

He’s all set to spin a compilation capturing the essence of The St. Regis Bangkok, while award-winning Japanese bartender and mixologist Gokan, owner of the acclaimed speakeasy in Shanghai, Speak Low, mixes inspirational cocktails.
    A rising star in the bar industry, Gokan won the Legacy Global Cocktail Competition in 2012. He was subsequently invited to be the first ever guest bartender at the Savoy Hotel in London. Gokan has now visited over 40 countries, teaching master classes and guest bartending at many celebrated bars. He also opened his own speakeasy in Shanghai, Speak Low, in 2014 and it has been picking up awards ever since including Best Cocktail Bar in Shanghai, Best Bar 2014 and 2015 in China. 
As a producer, Mauritius-born DJ Ravin is best known as one of the creators of the successful Buddha Bar compilation series. Combining dance numbers with trance and chill-out tracks, his tastes span musical and international boundaries. When the initial compilation became a major success, Ravin, and his long-time accomplice Claude Challe, produced a second volume, while Ravin was sole producer on Buddha Bar III. He went on to produce 10 albums in the ongoing Buddha Bar series, as well as a number of solo albums and themed compilations, reflecting his eclectic musical and spiritual interests.
 The event takes place on Saturday from 6pm at The St. Regis Bar, St Regis Bangkok. Entry is Bt800 with two cocktails by Gokan, or two standard drinks. Book a table at
