Introducing new Bar Manager at The House on Sathorn
The beverage program at The House on Sathorn is getting vamped up thanks to this new addition to the team – Bar Manager, Davide Boncimino.
The Bar at The House on Sathorn introduces a new Bar Manager, Davide Boncimino, whose background is packed with awards and competitions from around the world.
Davide was previously the Head Bartender for Madame Fan at JW Marriott Singapore South Beach for two years before he moved to Bangkok and joined The Bar. Madame Fan was awarded with a Michelin Plate last year and also listed in the top 10 Best Hotel Bars of the year by The Bar Awards.
Prior to that, he worked at other bars in Singapore like The Other Room and Lime House. He also spent a good couple of years as a bartender in London at Mr. Fogg’s Residence – number 72 in the World’s 100 Best Bars list, backed by earlier experiences in the Philippines and also Milan, Italy where he started his bartending career in 2013.
That’s not all, Davide had one of his cocktails, ‘Marshall’, listed in the book, ‘101 Award-Winning Cocktails from World’s Best Bartenders’ by Paul Martin. It’s a mix of rum, sherry wine, elder flower, lemon juice, agave and black pepper – a well balanced blend of aromatic and strong flavors in one glass.
In the past five years, Davide won a handful of mixologist competitions around the world, like the Bacardi Legacy Global Cocktail Competition Singapore, or Don Papa rum Competition, UK, and he was in the final rounds of even more. When not competing, Davide also judges at cocktail competitions in several countries.
His favorite thing about working in a bar is that he gets to be around people to learn and share stories. Davide plans to elevate the menu at The Bar using his knowledge from having been in the bar industry for almost a decade. Stay tuned.
The House on Sathorn was built in 1889 during the reign of King Rama V. The House’s architecture is in neoclassical style. Its original purpose was to be a home to a wealthy businessman Luang Sathorn Rajayutka who built the Sathorn Canal. In the early 1920s, The House was converted into Hotel Royal. Later, from 1948 to 1999, it served as the Russian Embassy. And in 2015, The House on Sathorn opened, after an extensive renovation carried out by the Thailand’s Fine Arts Department.
