The Wine Cellar, Bangkok

The Wine Cellar lies in what many regards as the "main road" of Bangkok, Sukhumvit, in Soi 31.

Classy and stylish, but at the same time an open atmosphere.

Almost the full selection of BF's wines is available, and at the same great prices as listed on our web page.

A web page for the shop is under construction, and we will link to it here when completed.
