What’s new in Bangkok this January

by Mahmood Hossain

Your monthly round-up of where to eat, drink and visit.


The Asiatique Ancient Tea House may be situated in a 111-year-old heritage house, but it also provides guests with modern luxury by the River of Kings, at Asiatique the Riverside. Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park recently launched the new dim-sum restaurant, with a stylish cocktail lounge, to take visitors on a culinary journey through a menu curated by the hotel’s award-winning Pagoda Chinese Restaurant. Based on the story of Emperor Shen Nong, who first discovered tea 4,000 years ago, expect an array of global tea collections in what they call their “living museum for tea enthusiasts.” Instagram: @ancientteahousebkk


At Piccolo Morso, you’re welcomed into a two-story space with everything Italian. Injected into the buzzing Nana nightlife, the newly-opened aperitivo lounge provides Italian spirits, cocktails, aperitifs, and of course, a list of wines. Situated in the alley behind Soho Pizza, this lounge aims to be a top contender against already popular establishments in Sukhumvit by introducing live music, DJs, and other performances. All are welcome to discover the authentic Italian aperitivo tradition, connecting people over food, drinks, and diverse cultures. Instagram: @piccolomorsobangkok


The century-old Chai Phatthanasilp building has been rejuvenated, becoming home to the recently launched The Corner House, a community and lifestyle space celebrating art and culture. Champ-Sukrit Sornhiran and Ping Thitipa Sornhiaran, the third-generation heirs of the family, created the new community space to house collaborative showcases, food markets, entertainment, artistic workshops and exhibitions, and much more. Using art as the driving force, the new space looks to champion local creativity, “where concept and creating converge” in every single inch of the property. Instagram: @thecornerhouse.bangkok


Launched in 2021 and promptly selling out within four hours, 818 Tequila is the brainchild of Kendall Jenner, who is bringing the tequila brand to Bangkok for the first time. This 100-percent sourced agave from Jalisco, Mexico, swept international awards since its launch, including the title for best reposado at the World Tequila Awards. With handpicked ingredients, cooked in traditional brick ovens, and aged in oak barrels, 818 Tequila currently comes in Tequila Blanco, Tequila Reposado, Tequila Anejo, and a beautiful blend of notes in the Eight Reserve. You can find the 818 bottles at Rim Shot Bar, Thaipioka, and Paper Plane Project. Instagram: @drink818
