Ian Kittichai’s Guide to Eating & Drinking [at WTF!!] in Bangkok

August 22nd, 2011

Via Grantourismo: It made sense to us, when we were looking for a Bangkok-born expert to give us their lowdown on the Bangkok eating and drinking scene, to ask Ian. We had to get in quick though! Here you go:

Bangkok’s best bars?
I like Iron Fairies in Thonglor. It’s such a unique concept and when you walk in you are truly transported into a different world via the décor as well as the music and vibe. I also like WTF in Sukhumvit 51. It’s a sort of artsy ‘dive bar’ cum gallery and a great little place to sit at a table and catch up with a friend. And of course there is Hyde & Seek, which, although some may say I am biased, does truly have the best cocktails as well as cocktail list in town.

CAMBODIAN SPACE PROJECT Live Music FREE!

August 12th, 2011

POSTPONED to be rescheduled for late September

Wednesday 24 August
8PM FREE

An acoustic warm-up to the full-force gig at Cosmic Cafe on Saturday. In just a short space in time, CSP has toured in Europe, Asia, and most recently Australia. The band [toured] China for the first time and has been invited to attend the South By South West Festival in Austin Texas, as well as other major European festivals later this year.

 
In Australia, the normally tight-lipped, arts philanthropist David Walsh remarked “Cambodian Space Project? they’re a personal high-light” – at Mona Foma festival 2011. Indeed, Srey Channthy and her cross-culture band has been turning heads – from the rock clubs of Paris to the mountains of Mondulkiri with performances that have her unique Khmer vocals suspended above a psychedelic mix of 60’s Cambodian rock songs and re-workings of traditional songs from the rice fields of Cambodia.
 
Come early as seating is limited!
