Meet Khun Nat, the Man behind the Bar at ZOOK Bangkok
How did you get into bartending?
Being a bartender was my first job when I moved to Bangkok. I did not have much knowledge back then, so I trained. It was in 2005 when I realized that bartending would be my life’s profession.
What is the most popular drink at ZOOK Bar?
Right now, our top sellers are Long Island and Pina Colada.
What is the busiest time of the week?
It depends but guests show up during ZOOK Happy Hour which is from 4:30 PM – 8:30 PM, every day. Also, people come to ZOOK Bar every Thursday and Friday evening for ZOOK Cocktails, Bites & Beats (DJ nights) and we get really excited about that.
Do you have a favorite drink to make?
I like to make ‘Ivan Exclusive’. It is a vodka-based cocktail, named after our owner.
What do you like most about working at ZAZZ Urban Bangkok?
We all work as a team here, and treat each other as family.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I enjoy cooking food and do some gardening stuff.
What is your biggest dream?
Well, I would like to have my own venture in the future. I wish to open a cocktail bar business.
What advice can you give to budding bartenders?
I think if you would like to be a good bartender, you need to possess a positive attitude, provide outstanding customer service and be passionate about your craft.
