BANGKOK VENUE

Zombie Books

This RCA bookstore is also a bar.

Is it a book shop? Is it a bar? RCA’s newly opened Zombie Books is both, with a gallery and co-working space thrown in too. 

After forging a career as a writer and publisher, the founder launched this project initially as an online book shop before expanding to a proper shop right here on the notorious party strip. The single-room bookstore features mostly Thai literature, translations of international books and the occasional English title depending on the owner’s preference.

The owner told us his definition of a new book is “one you haven’t read, regardless of publishing year”—so you can expect to find plenty of older novels, box sets and even secondhand copies.

Need a place to read? Head up to the second floor for a co-working-slash-exhibition space. The third floor is home to 1970s Bar, which offers live bands from Fri-Sat.
