    An eye for loafers

    Guru, Catherine Faulder, Published on 17/11/2017

    » If you're a loafer fan, then you'll probably know about the British footwear brand Duke & Dexter (D&D) which has been serving up some outlandish and wonderfully creative designs since 2014. After a successful launch in Japan, the brand just launched its first store in Bangkok at Siam Discovery, making Thailand its first office retail destination in Southeast Asia! We spoke to the man behind this very British brand that's now being sold in 100 countries worldwide, none other than its founder Archie Hewlett. To find out more, check out their store at Siam Discovery or visit www.dukeanddexter.com.

    It's fabulous

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 17/11/2017

    » <b>The setting:</b> If you're familiar with the name Fablab but you know it as a fashion apparel store, you're not mistaken. They've already got three stores in the city, one in CentralFestival EastVille and one over at Siam Center, but only one houses Fablab Café: their flagship store on Ekamai Road.

    Gimme, gimme a crêpe

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 17/11/2017

    » For some strange reason, crêpes are actually a common snack around Bangkok. We're not complaining. Those streetside vendors selling the Thai version of crêpes are worth your B30. But Thong Lor chill haven The Commons, known most commonly (see what we did there?) for a vast array of restaurants, has added another food destination that elevates the usual crêpes we're used to seeing around the Big Mango.

    Charoen cool

    Guru, Nimarta Narang, Published on 17/11/2017

    » We've all been through the traffic jams, the unbearable heat and the same old crowded shopping malls of Bangkok. Sure, they're always busy and there is always lots to do -- but city life can be as draining as it is exciting. Sometimes you just need to get away from all the congestion. And what better way to escape than a trip down to the river? The riverside along Charoen Krung Road is riddled with different art spaces and centres, some of which have been around for a while and others that are just opening up. We decided to take an excursion to six different spaces that offer art, music and even opportunities for a swim, all within walking distance from the river.

    Setting sail

    Guru, Nimarta Narang, Published on 10/11/2017

    » Bangkok has its charms, and there have been plenty of people enticed by this city. Yuval Schwok is one of them. Having grown up in Paris with a liberal Jewish background, Yuval always had a strong desire to travel and seek adventure. He accidentally arrived in Bangkok 14 years ago, and never quite left as he has now lived here for 12 years. It is quite fitting then that his first project was called The Overstay — a hostel, music venue and creative space all in one offering more than a place to stay for travellers and visitors. But for the past three years, Yuval has also been developing a new project called Bangkok Island, a boat that is set to be a prime venue for music and art. He hopes for it to not be like any other boat cruise, but rather a destination for artists and live music. We had a chat with The Overstay's founder about his new project, the challenges he has encountered and his take on the event scene in Bangkok.

    A very veggie delight

    Guru, Catherine Faulder, Published on 10/11/2017

    » <b>The setting:</b> Alright, this doesn't really bring to mind a fancy wine and dine joint and it certainly isn't gourmet. But given that it was just vegetarian festival, we thought we'd represent a bit. Veggie Chef is what you're more likely to call street food; except, it's in an air-conditioned shophouse; it's MSG free and it's also completely vegan friendly. It's a bit of a way out of central Bangkok as it's quite close to Don Mueang Airport, yet we'll have you know that people with some hours to kill before their next flight will actually leave the airport to come to this joint, just because it's that good. Think of it as a no-frills vegan joint giving off a street food vibe, serving the most authentic tasting Thai food that's actually better than your regular Thai food because it's super healthy.
