Party animals – this is gonna be a big one.
This first weekend in December is heavy on the nightlife with a huge handful of parties and more DJ sets that you can shake a stick at.
Of course, it’s also the weekend of Father’s Day and so is the perfect time to get together with your family and do what Bangkokians do best: eating.
Father’s Day deals and promotions in the restaurants and hotels along Sukhumvit are in abundance. Here’s a handful to keep you going for now:
- Westin Grande Sukhumvit: Father’s Day Fish & Oysters Market Buffet
- Grande Sukhumvit Hotel: Cafe de Nimes Buffet Lunch
- Indique Gastrobar and Restaurant: Dads Dine Free
- Holiday Inn Bangkok Sukhumvit: Zeta Cafe Lunch
- Hotel Lotus Sukhumvit: Fathers Eat Free Dim Sum Buffet
- Pullman Bangkok Grande Sukhumvit: Dads Dine Free Special Brunch
Or you could take Dad along to one of these events instead…
Award-winning comic Shanti Charan is headlining the Comedy Club Bangkok’s last showcase of 2015 in what promises to be a barnstormer of a Christmas special. Drinks deals at the Royal Oak all night.
Music minimalism is the name of the game when it comes to this three hour set by Sunju Hargun at Dark Bar. Supported by Sen Yai, expect experimentation in the form of limited notes and instruments, music comprised only of river and stream recordings, endlessly circling tunes, pitches between C and D and even tempos slowed down to 2 to 3 notes per minute.
The unparalleled shipping container-style market is back and this time they’re setting up shop at the EM District for the weekend. This will be a particularly artistic looking event thanks to the Bangkok Illumination Festival which is also lighting up the space between Emporium and EmQuartier.
The regular drum n’ bass night Phatfunk is back at Glow this Friday with a special guest appearance from Parisian DJ MORESOUNDS – the so-called Jim Morrison of Live Bass Music. The event tells you to “imagine the sounds of 90’s Old School Jungle music, being transported 100 years into the future, with a drop of Hoffman’s LSD25”.
For people who believe in a life of moderation and who enjoy running and beer (not necessarily at the same time), the Mikkeller Running Club could be the extracurricular hobby for you. The popular beer bar and brewery are celebrating the first anniversary of their running club with this event on Saturday.
What happens when two of Thonglor’s biggest names in nightlife get together for a night of revelry? You guessed it: a huge masquerade party. Prepare to keep your secrets under the mask while you party at this one-off event on Friday.
Kram Cafe and Thai Kitchen are hosting their first ever live music event this Friday with an appearance from US tropical house DJs Autograf. Early Bird tickets are available online while you’ll pay full price at the door.
Studio Lam are preparing to host a couple of ragers this weekend. On Friday, there’s DJ Paul Unglo back with his cinematic funk, avant-garde jazz and psycho-beat instrumentals while it’s all about avant-garde electronic on Saturday with Marmosets, Broken YaakBeat, Nolens.Volens and Maft Sai. Entry is 200 baht.
