BANGKOK VENUE

VR1

Bangkok now has a virtual-reality cafe. 

Following a year of board game cafes, Bangkok now has a virtual-reality cafe. VR1 sits on Thonglor and lets people try their hand at the HTC Vive—a virtual reality headset that turns the room you’re in into a make-believe computer-generated space. 

Plug in and try your hand at shooting games, horror simulators and culinary challenges. Though HTC Vive is the main system on offer, they do have Oculus and Playstation VR systems, too. The price is B650 for the first hour, and goes down to B550 for every hour after that. 

The cafe itself—white brick, fake grass terrace, Tolix chairs—dishes out fries and edamame (B100-120), beers (from B100) and soft drinks.
