J. Boroski Mixology is a true speakeasy. I heard about it from a couple in another speakeasy down Thong Lo (FindTheLockerRoom) and I was given vague directions and no address. Then, I tried to google it- no avail. It was only through this TripAdvisor thread that I could find the exact location.
When I did, I breathed a sigh of relief. This bar is understated industrial chic, drawing on steampunk vibes akin to Iron Fairies. Comfortable leather couches, butterflies from the ceiling, an audiobook playing in the bathrooms; the aesthetic is everything.
The bartenders know their job. Sit back, have a conversation, discuss what you like and they’ll mix you something original, on the spot, within your price-range. The ones made for me were absolutely delicious, and my partner’s cocktails were him all over.
I’ve heard mixed reviews of this place through the grapevine. The most common being that the bar is ‘pretentious and overpriced’. I think if you set yourself a budget and vocalise that to the bartenders, they can work within your constraints. Otherwise, if you just say, “bring me your finest whisky”, they’ll serve you their finest whisky.
Good luck finding it. If you do, you’ll be sure to have a swell time.
