An endless list of activities awaits at Thong Lor. From hispter cafés to local Thai designer shops and buzzing nightlife, 24 hours is simply not enough.

This district has risen to popularity over the past years and we list out what you can see on your day there.

Welcome to Bangkok’s trendy neighbourhood, where you’ll get a bit of everything. There is a wide selection of eateries and nightlife, and it has become a must-go for the savvy. Here are some picks for you to make your time there worthwhile.

EAT

The Commons is a building that houses a food market with vendors like Lobster Lab and Barrio Bonito. On the upper levels there is Roast which is known for its Slow Roasted Fried Chicken and Brix Dessert Bar where you can find the hottest sweet cake in the district! Out on the streets, if you want to savour good traditional food in a restaurant, turn to Canvas. If you fancy a wide dish of mouth-watering Spanish paella, there is Arroz.

Thonkrueng serves traditional upper-middle class Thai cuisine that won’t break the bank, and you’ll have a chance to taste what the royal family has on their tables. It’s obvious what you can find at Mandarin Roast Duck that has been around for 20 years, but if you are feeling more Japanese, try MakiMaki Sushi or Honmono Sushi, as both have been raved about.

Tuning your taste buds to the West, there are places like Bacco that does great Italian amidst a good atmosphere. Mellow Restaurant and Bar is known for its hearty serving of ribs.

To complete the meal with a sweet ending, you will need some Shugaa. This dessert joint has very nicely designed cakes that put it on Instagram-worthy lists of many food blogs. The Japanese-inspired After You Dessert Café has a branch in the district as well.

If you want brunch within a sleek architecture – white-washed walls and raw concrete floors – you are looking at One Ounce for Onion. They use the beans from Brave Roasters and serve up specials like Farmer’s Hamburg. Patom Organic Living occupies a glasshouse surrounded by greenery. Lovers of organic and sustainable diets will fancy this place. Another place that people who enjoy organic products may want to go to is Broccoli Revolution, which is safely vegan. Lots of instagrammers flock to Audrey Café & Bistro for its French vintage décor and also to Casa Lapin for its hipster vibes.

BAR

Iron Fairies has been around before Thonglor became a hit with tourists and locals. The bar was inspired by a fairytale and has live jazz/blues performances every night. If whisky rocks your socks, the Black Amber Social Club will sweep you off your feet with their offerings. Rabbit Hole carries the essence of Thonglor, being a speakeasy with a long, galley-like bar that specializes in cocktails. We can’t leave 72 Courtyard out as it is a nightlife hub consisting of Beam and Evil Man Blues, just to name a few. If you want to skip the hipster vibes and just want to satisfy your alcoholic thirst, Cheap Charlie is your man. This is a quaint and casual bar where you can get drinks at for just THB80.
