Sukhumvit Soi 28 marks where the Phrom Phong neighbourhood starts to fade into Thong Lor and is significantly quieter than its neighbour, Soi 26.

This is certainly an up-and-coming neighbourhood, which is illustrated by the number of property developments popping up in the area — in particular, The Address Sukhumvit 28 and, across the road, Metropolis Bangkok.

Let’s have a look at this soi’s highlights…

Dasa Books Cafe

Retail

sukhumvit soi 28

Strictly on the Sukhumvit Road rather than Sukhumvit Soi 28 (although close enough for our purposes!) is Bangkok’s favourite secondhand bookshop. Take a look at our profile and interview with the owner here.

They have over 18,000 books in stock, and you can check exactly what they’ve got on the incredible Dasabase, which is updated three times a week. The physical store is open from 10am to 8pm every day, even public holidays.

ChindAsia Club

Bar/Members’ Club

This is a upscale bar on Soi 28 that sells single malts, wines and cigars to its discerning clientele.

ChindAsia also have regular one-off events and tastings, such as a recent craft beer tasting by One Eye Jack Brewery, and the longest cigar ash competition.

It is a members’ club.

Tailorbird

Tailors

Tailorbird define themselves as the one-stop service for men’s and groom’s attire, offering rentals, made to measure rentals and even tailor-made.

They have some amazing hand-crafted bow ties, tuxedos and other men’s suits.
