Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit is delighted to announce that L’Appart, its elegant rooftop bar and restaurant, has been awarded the prestigious “Wine Spectator Award of Excellence 2016”.

Wine Spectator is a highly respected American magazine that specializes in tasting notes, industry news and wine-personality profiles by some of the most respected and knowledgeable wine experts.

Over the past year at L’Appart, Chef Jerome has delighted diners with an extraordinary new menu, hosted special gourmet evenings to compliment French wines at ‘Sofitel Wine Days’ events, and worked alongside guest Michelin star chefs such as Patrick Jeffroy and Herve Rodriquez. L’Appart’s menu and our sommelier selection of wines  of the world make it a truly exceptional destination for lovers of gourmet cuisine and fine wines. ”
