Vesper is delighted to welcome our new Bar Manager, Federico Balzarini



Known for being a pioneer of Bangkok’s cocktail scene and creating thought-provoking drinks, Vesper (ASIA’S 50 BEST BARS 2016 – 2021 & No. 62 WORLD’S 50 BEST BARS 2020) is delighted to welcome Federico Balzarini as our new Bar Manager. Federico will join Vesper in early August straight from his stints at London’s the American Bar at the Savoy.


Born & raised in Salò, a beautiful Italian town close to Milan, Federico began his career in hospitality at a local cocktail bar where he felt in love with bartending. He decided to move to London in 2016 to pursue his dream by first joining Soho House’s Hubbard & Bell as bartender before furthering his career at the legendary American Bar at The Savoy (No.1 WORLD’S 50 BEST BARS 2017) as Senior Bartender. Working directly with legendary names like Erik Lorincz and Declan McGurk, Federico has not only gained tremendous experience in creating refined cocktails but also in providing exceptional service to the discerning guests. After 5 years in London, Federico is making his debut in Asia’s thriving cocktail scene and continues Vesper’s line of great bar managers since our opening in 2014.


“I have always been fascinated by Asia and had a chance to travel to Bangkok back in 2019.I love the city’s vibrance and richness in culture, so when Choti & Debby reached me for an opportunity to lead their brainchild, I was so thrilled and said yes, without any hesitation.I am extremely excited to be part of this already-strong Vesper team and look forward to meeting all the friends around Asia.I am currently working on a series of new cocktails for our menu that will be launched as soon as we can reopen our door.Please stay tuned!”


Vesper is under temporary closure due to the Government’s Covid-19 restriction, but we are looking forward to our reopening under Federico’s leadership later this year.
