Sukhumvit Soi 11’s latest member, Blaq Lyte 11, is creating a space to host memorable parties with a focus on good music. Launched by the Blaq Lyte collective, who’ve established themselves as a creative agency with a host of different channels including
the Bangkok Block Party, Future Factory BKK and even their own record label, Blaq Lyte Digital, the Blaq Lyte 11 club is a homage to their roots within the nightlife scene, as
they originally started as a club in Thonglor. Keep your eyes on their socials for their grand opening!

Oyster Mushroom Gangjeong bap (THB 199) comprised of moreish and crispy fried mushrooms, and more!
Guests can order items from their menu via Grab, Robinhood and LINE Man.
