What’s On… Soi 8

Soi 8 is one of the most underrated of Sukhumvit’s many streets.

In comparison to its noisy Nana neighbours, Soi 8 sports a slightly more laid back atmosphere with a distinct aesthetic charm and abundance of greenery lining its side.

Pastel-coloured townhouses and billowing palm trees frame the Soi while a handful of bars, restaurants, hostels and hotels cater to the offbeat clientele found here.

There’s towering condos aplenty too as both Thais and expats take advantage of the soi’s brilliant location adjacent to Nana BTS Station.

Let’s take a look around…

Soi 8

Food and Drink

Although Soi 8 is not quite the culinary and nightlife destination that Soi 11 opposite claims to be, it still has a number of eateries up its sleeve.

Naturally, Thai food is easy to procure along here – check out Viva, Prai Raya Phuket Cuisine, Kinnaree and Monsoon.

For Italian, Via Vai, Little Italy and Paris Pizza are the places to start, while for Indian, it’s all about India Today.

If you’re looking for a bar or pub atmosphere, nice eats can be sourced from Soi 8 Pub and Restaurant, Coffee @ 8, The Kiwi Sport Pub and Grill and the American Bar and Grill as you sip your Singha.

For drinking holes on Soi 8, check out the pubs and sports bars above, and det-5 if you fancy live music and rich history.

Hotels

If you’re after boutique or hostel accommodation, Soi 8 should be the first place you start.

For hostels, check out the Cornish seaside-esque FU House Hostel, Hostel Shane and Hostel @ 8.

Smaller boutiques are in abundance here; this is definitely not the Soi to start at if you’re after international hotel chains… Check out On8, The Promenade, Salil Hotel, Royal Asia Lodge, Sawasdee Hotel, Royal Express, At ParadiseStable Lodge and the newly opened Rewind Bar and Hotel.

If serviced apartments are more your thing; Adelphi Suites, Citadines and Eight Ville.

Finally…

If you’re just looking for a fitted suit, why not check out the two tailors on Soi 8? Crown Tailors and Suitmakers are found towards the start of the soi while the confusingly named Tailor On Ten can be found towards the quieter end.
