    » Just a few minutes' walk from BTS Ari, Cast Iron Burgerhaus has been open for almost 10 months but has already established itself as a go-to place in the area when you're craving a burger. The resto isn't that huge but what it lacks in size it compensates for with its chill feel. Its industrial decor gives it a ragged elegance with the bar being the centrepiece, which brings the entire quaint place together.

    Anger is an energy

    Life, Gary Boyle, Published on 17/08/2018

    » It takes Trent Reznor 45 minutes to say hello. He voices his surprise that it's taken his band Nine Inch Nails nearly 30 years to do a show in Thailand.

That was followed by I Am My Own Wife, a one-person play about the life of a transgender woman during World War II and the Communist regime in East Berlin.
