Vesper, in partnership with Thailand RUM Cocktail Week & PHRAYA RUM, welcomes Shingo Gokan & Steve Schneider-Hadzismajlovic, two of the world-leading bartenders and co-founders of The Odd Couple (Shanghai) for a one-night pop-up in Bangkok!
After moving to New York in 2006, Shingo directed the renowned bar program at Angel's Share for ten years before moving back to Asia to open his own establishments in Shanghai and Tokyo. His works have been recognized internationally, including Speak Low (no. 20 in The World's 50 Best Bars 2018), Sober Company (no. 16 in Asia’s 50 Best Bars 2019) and The SG Club (no. 13 in Asia’s 50 Best Bars 2019).
Recently, he earned the prestigious title of International Bartender Of The Year at Tales of the Cocktail 2017 and Altos Bartender's Bartender Award in Asia's 50 Best Bars 2019.
Steve has earned a reputation as one of the most respected and successful bartenders in the industry. We are not surprised to see Steve's name as the mastermind behind many leading cocktail bars including Employees Only (no. 26 in World’s 50 Best Bars 2018), Employees Only Singapore (no. 41 in Asia’s 50 Best Bars 2019), The Strangers Club in Panama and Elysian Café in USA.
His personal recognition includes winner of the Cocktail World Cup 2012, Bartender of the Year award 2015 by the Nightclub & Bar Media Group & top ten amongst nominees for “International Bartender of the Year” at Tales of the Cocktail.
The Odd Couple is a collaboration of the two highly acclaimed bartenders. Opened its door in November 2018, The Odd Couple is the high-energy cocktail lounge that features a “cheeky and retro” 80s theme. The venue takes its name from the pair’s complementary but opposite bartending styles - combining their talents of quality, precision, speed and hospitality.
The Odd Couple Live in Bangkok! Thursday, 11th June 8pm - midnight
