CHINATOWN-2020

Unique gastronomy Diverging cultures Historic treasures

In a nostalgic refuge from the city centre, yesteryear’s commercial hub makes for an eclectic playground of creativity and culture, with plenty to discover.

The buzzing business of Charoenkrung still echoes in the characterful shophouses of Charoenkrung and you can taste the Chinese influence in Yaowarat’s sizzling street food scene. Explore Bangkok’s old town to uncover a lively new community of cafes, bars and galleries that nod to the neighbourhood’s storied past.

We’ll be open for bookings soon. In the meantime, stay in the loop.

"Vincent: The Life and Death of Vincent van Gogh" is a documentary film by Australian director Paul Cox, exploring the last eight years of the artist's life. Cox was attracted to the project because of his personal admiration for Vincent van Gogh:

"I found him such a compassionate, wonderful human being. That attracted me above all. I found him always honest, always real, always doing his utmost, and I related very much to his type of loneliness. It's the loneliness, the dreadful loneliness that I've known all my life. That was still much stronger for me when I tried to become a film-maker - you know, up to 30, 35, I was terribly alone. I was not equipped for the world at all, and, at that level, that is a very similar background to Vincent."

Date: Saturday 29 - 30 Jun 2019
Time: 11:00 AM - 6:00 PM
Place: LHONG 1919
Address: 248 Chiang Mai road, Klongsan, Bangkok, Thailand 
Event Page: https://www.potioneer.com/event/bangkok-bar-show-2019-3155467081940035?fbclid=IwAR1l-Kw41kE2nhKCZFOxhU_Gyf7cZUp8gmJRUNZzH634e2KwpIJ_Q9ZDqLM

 

A TWO-DAY COCKTAIL EXPERIENCE WITH SPIRIT TASTINGS, GUEST BARTENDERS, SEMINARS & POP-UPS.

BKK Bar Show is the first of its kind, having an exhibition showcasing the different brands available in Thailand. Also allowing consumers to sample various spirits and liqueurs from all around the world.

For the beginners/first timers: The idea of visiting a bar with loads of spirits and liqueurs in the back bar and not knowing what to order and not make a fool out of yourself, we understand that it may be intimidating. Having an exhibition like this allows first-timers to wander about throughout the event hall and sample spirits and liqueurs they are not familiar with in a casual environment.

For the veterans: This exhibition allows them to taste and sample, and even purchase some spirits and/or liqueurs that they may not have seen or tasted before. And even if they do know about it, it's also a great chance for them to know even more about it; where it's from, how it's made, even how you should drink it.

Prices: THB200, per day. Tickets on the day of the event is THB300 when bought at the entrance.

Remarks: From 2pm-5pm, there will be no sale of alcohol, but booths and craft tables will be showcasing their products as samples.
