The renovated shop-house trend that's swept Charoenkrung and Talad Noiover the past year has arrived in Silom.
It's founded by Oliver Wolfson, a filmmaker who arrived in Bangkok eight years ago to start his video production business Whiteline Media and here expands his passion with Whiteline Gallery and Bar.
Located on the corner of Silom Soi 8, this six-story building comprises a first floor dedicated to a grungy art space that's more than a little reminiscent of Soy Sauce from the paintings on the white-washed wall to the film projections and colorful lighting.
The bar has already hosted a few music nights on the sly with familiar faces from Plastic Section and Sticky Rice, while it's about to launch a new party series, Rockers Reggae Club (starting Jun 12).
The drinks keep things simple with beers: Leo starts from B80/can, Beerlao B150, Deschutes IPA at B250, with homebrew is soon to come on tap.
This month they are also hosting two interesting events, starting with Bangkok Filmmakers on Jun 13 where short films submitted by local filmmakers will be screened from 7:30-9pm. Then Brewtopia on Jun 19 will welcome a long list of local craft brewers like X Beer, Triple Pearl, Purr Beer, Jo+ Beer and Golden Coins, as well as food truck Deli-Q and Cactus BKK.
In the future, the whole building will be turned into an entertainment hub, combining bar, restaurant, club and gallery.
