Venue details

Step inside this old shop-house and you're transported to a retro Hong Kong diner like something out of In the Mood for Love—think warm lighting, carefully positioned mirrors, vintage mosaic tiles. Downstairs you'll find a hip bistro serving cold cuts and crepes alongside wine. A prohibition era-themed cocktail bar sits upstairs, where French spirits are spotlighted in classic cocktails based on The Savoy Cocktail Book (first published back in 1930).

Review from  

The bar is hidden inside a tiny sub-soi inside Soi Nana, opposite Teens of Thailand. The limited, narrow space offers scant seating arrangements, with stools at the bar providing the perfect spot to watch the bartender in action and talk to him about the rare local ingredients in the drinks. While sitting there, look up and you’ll see a massive shark hanging over your head—a nod to co-owner Gun Leelhasuwan’s childhood obsession with the creatures. Steep, cramped wooden stairs lead up to the second floor where, by March, you will get a chef’s table concept but for tasting cocktail ingredients.

This is the booking page for our bistro. If you'd like to make a booking for our jazz club on the 2F, you can do so here: Foo de Jazz.

The FooJohn Building is a unique restaurant where 3 offerings, 3 interiors, and 3 atmospheres coexist in a renovated 1960's post modernist building, a great place to experience the charm of Old Town and the Creative District.

When making a reservation please specify the floor you would like to be seated on:

  • The 1st floor is our bistro, Fou de Joie, an authentic French bistro that serves crepes, wine and charcuterie.
  • The 2nd floor is our jazz club, with live jazz every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night from 9pm and can be booked here: Foo de Jazz.
  • The 3rd floor and both rooftops are SpareParts Smokehouse, serving authentic Texas smoked BBQ, draught beer and bourbon drinks.

Parking is available at the temple across the street from the FooJohn Building. Alternatively, you can also park on Charoenkrung Road.

Jua Omakase

JUA - Omakase

Japanese / Chinatown • $$$

In Japan, the term kushiyaki refers to skewered meats and fresh vegetables grilled over binchotan, or Japanese charcoal. At JUA we take this idea a few steps further. In addition to classic kushiyaki, our chef dishes out an assortment of izakaya fare prepared tapas-style on plates meant for sharing. This is unpretentious drinking food that is best enjoyed with good friends and family. Our beverage menu is a thoughtful collection natural wines, handcrafted cocktails, artisanal sake and small-batch spirits. 

The intimate yet functional space comfortably seats up to 40 guests and is located near the Chao Praya River in Bangkok’s emerging “Creative District”. The 3-story building was formerly a “baan kaanphanan”, or illegal gambling house, that operated for more than 20 years. JUA is a reference to the game of Siamese blackjack (otherwise known as “pok daeng”) and loosely translates to “hit me!” in the original Thai. The name serves as a playful tribute to the building’s nefarious past.

The design, by Sean Dix Design & Architecture in Hong Kong (Yardbird, Belon, Lil’Bao, Ho Lee Fook), is informal and minimal, incorporating a muted color palette that allows for the artwork, custom furnishings and elements of the surrounding neighborhood to shine through. The overall aesthetic is a thoughtful mix of Thai and Japanese modernism.

JUA’s primary goal is to promote a memorable social atmosphere that encourages an after work snack, happy hour cocktails or a night out. A place to relax, unwind, and enjoy food and drink as they are meant to be enjoyed, in a immaculately-designed space that combines the spirit of Osaka’s backstreets with vibrant energy and laidback soul of Bangkok’s old town

Venue details

Chef Chet Adkins’ impeccably prepared izakaya-style skewers celebrate quality charcoal and produce. Luscious banana prawns come grilled to that medium sweet spot on aromatic longan wood and smeared with durian butter, while house-cured bacon-wrapped asparagus brims with the smokiness of tamarind wood. Adkins’ business partner, photographer Jason Lang, is an expert on sake and ensures the bar remains well stocked.
