World-class mixologist, Francesco Moretti from The Strand Hotel Yangon’s famous Sarkies Bar is coming to town this week and will take over Scarlett Wine Bar & Restaurant on Friday for one night only to mix, muddle and shake his award-winning drinks.

A gifted and creative mixologist, Moretti learned his craft in some of Europe’s most exclusive bars and restaurants, including working alongside Michelin starred Jean-Claude Brugel at Sea Lounge Beach Monte Carlo. Following a move to Miami to improve his American technique, he returned to France where he was awarded as the “Best Mojito Maker” in 2010.

Moretti then set his sights on Asia and joined Sarkies Bar in The Strand Hotel Yangon in 2016, where he impresses guests with his innovative cocktail creations using Asian ingredients. His Asian adventures have also included special appearances at Shanghai’s long-established Bar Rouge and VOL.

Visiting Bangkok to present an award at this year’s Bar Asia Awards, Moretti will be jumping behind the bar at Scarlett Bangkok for a special Sarkies Bar takeover.

Guests can expect to be wowed with bar theatrics, originality and the exotic flavours of his Asian-inspired cocktails created especially for this exclusive event.

His cocktail creations will be available at the restaurant through March.

Scarlett Wine Bar & Restaurant is open daily from 6pm to 1am. For reservations, please call (02) 352 4000, (096) 860 7990 or visit Facebook.com/Scarlettwinebarbangkok.
