Emerged from the love of music in an old-fashioned way, music played at Strange Fruit comes from the analog sound of treasurable vinyl records, giving an unexplainably seducing sensation like nowhere else.
Whether you are into oldies, jazz, hip-hop, or Thai, you will definitely be surprised by savvy playlist DJ is spinning in the house. Please check out their Facebook page for the schedule of the DJs.
Even though there are not many choices on the list, all of which are worth sipping. Cocktails here are creatively crafted with inspiration from the nature of vinyl records and music scene.
If you are
Round ‘N’ Round (In My Head) (THB 320), despite being a mixture of 3 liquors, it leaves the smoothest touch in your mouth. This sapid savory gently kicks your nose with coffee-ish aroma, followed by a slight orange zest. It does grow on you in each sip.
Easy-to-drink Dirty Hands (THB 320) is a combination of gin, sugar, and cinnamon. It reveals different tastes in each layer, with cinnamon as the most distinctive scent.
For dainty ladies, Soul Grape (THB 320) is the fruity one that exhilarates your taste buds so exquisitely with rich and smooth texture.
Another girlish one is Bad Girl Goes Backstage (THB 320). The candied cocktail tastes a lot like lollipop with watermelon aftertaste. It tastes so pleasant that you can have more than just a glass in a night.
There are also beers and wines available, but trying some cocktails here is still a massive recommendation.
