Bourbon Street - Still Bringing the Flavours of New Orleans to Bangkok
Bourbon Street Restaurant and Oyster Bar, a Bangkok institution, recently relocated to new premises in Ekamai. The same spicy aromas of Louisiana are still very much in evidence, however, with the eatery meeting the demands of a well established customer base for Cajun and Creole cuisine.
Mexican food is another speciality of the kitchen, and the ever popular Mexican buffet night is still going strong every Tuesday in the Sukhumvit 63 restaurant.

Among the most popular Louisiana dishes are Boiled Crawfish, Blackened Redfish, Jambalaya, Gumbo and Blackened Crab Cakes. Other favourites include Barbecued Baby Back Ribs and Chicken, Char Grilled Steaks, Beef Brisket, Fried Chicken Steaks and a complete range of Pizzas and Thai dishes. An extensive breakfast menu is also prominent, with the establishment opening at 7am to catch early trade.
The new property also features a boutique hotel, sitting above the two storey bar and restaurant, with each air-conditioned room complete with modern conveniences such as cable television, mini bar, en-suite bathroom, security safe, Wi-Fi and worldwide direct dialling. A seventh storey rooftop party room (indoor and outdoor) provides great views, full bar service and restaurant catering.
Rooms are very competitively priced and discounts are offered for long stay bookings. Bourbon Street Restaurant and Oyster Bar is easily reached from Sukhumvit Road and is just a five minute stroll from the Ekamai BTS Skytrain station.
