What’s new in BKK this September

A new cocktail menu, restaurant and bar!

By Shaan Bajaj


Thonglor’s famous speakeasy, Find The Locker Room, celebrates its fifth year anniversary with a brand new cocktail menu. As they bid farewell to their previous Past-Present-Future menu, they welcome a new one inspired by the 60s-80s, aptly named Time Capsule Volume 1. Each drink is inspired by the three defining features of the era: fashion, toys and music. Make sure to check out Who Wears Short Shorts (THB 460), a three-flavour cocktail crafted in tribute to Mary Quant’s hot pants, or for fans of The Beatles, order a fruity Strawberry fields (THB 490) cocktail inspired by the song. Alternatively, if you like something that packs a punch, sip on the Magic F8 (THB 460), which is as surprising as the quintessential Magic 8 Ball.

Currently in its soft opening, VIVIN Grocery – Café Asok has opened its doors to the public. VIVIN Grocery has had a presence in Thailand since 2014, starting at a local farmer’s market before opening their first branch in Ekkamai. Their aim is to provide consumers with high-quality, fresh and local produce, and they sell artisanal Thai products, freshly-baked pastries, a selection of cheeses, dried fruits, organic fruits and vegetables, cold cuts, poultry, caviar and much more. Their new café in Asoke specialises in coffee, salads and sandwiches, and is a must-visit for a relaxing lunch with friends.


Bangkok’s street food scene is one of the most popular in the world, with small street vendors selling charcoal grilled meats on every corner. Taahra, recently-opened in Charoen Krung, pays tribute to this cooking method by inventing a fine-dining experience using charcoal as its main cooking technique. Chef Pat-in Promsawadi designs a menu with fresh takes on classic dishes like his Gai yang somtum, which includes squab instead of chicken, while his signature dessert features warm toasted bread paired with pink milk cream. This contemporary 13-course experience on Thai charcoal cuisine will set you back THB 3,800. The restaurant is open from Tuesdays to Sundays, and it’s recommended that you make prior reservations.

A new bar, Freaking out the Neighborhood, is inviting individuals to plug out of music streaming platforms, and learn to truly appreciate music. Their concept aims to highlight music as art through vinyl discs, with an emphasis on hearing each album as it was meant to be heard by the artist, while you chill out with one of their classic cocktails. At the beginning of each month, they’ll release a music lineup with different musical genres, like jazz or punk, on different days. Alternatively, you can bring your own vinyl disc on some days too! They’re open from Wednesdays to Saturdays, from 6pm to midnight. If you’re keen on growing your own vinyl collection, Have You Heard? Records have a branch at the bar too. Booking ahead is recommended.
