Lined with posh restaurants and beautiful boutiques, there’s no denying this soi is an elite playground, but there’s more to it than meets the eye.

The Coffee Club
 
The Hen and The Egg
 

Coffee & Breakfast

Wake up with a signature Manuka coffee (B150) or London Elderflower Espressoda (B240) at Hong Kong-hailing The Coffee Academics, or keep it local with an Americano (B100) at Chiang Mai-born Pacamara Coffee Roaster. Dig into tasty Western-style breakfast dishes like the Eggstremely Sunny (B155) at The Hen and The Egg or head to The Coffee Club for eggs Benedict with salmon (B280).
 
The Smokin' Pug 
 

Lunch & Dinner

Carnivores can feast on succulent house-smoked baby back pork ribs (B595 half/B875 full rack) at The Smokin’ Pug, tasty steak-frites (B680) with classic “Cafe de Paris” green sauce at Le Boeuf, or excellent steaks at Babette’s The Steak House— head there at lunch time to get two courses for just B290, or three courses for B390. Carb addicts can load up on local mud crab and tomato cannelloni (B580) or prawn ravioli (B620) at Italian restaurant Medici, or crab fried rice (B200) at Krua Nai Bann. Delve into creative Thai and Indian flavors with Michelin-starred Gaa’s 14-course tasting menu (B2,900). Looking to assuage your guilt? Grab a healthy Thousand Island salmon salad (B220) from Absolute Fit Food, or walk the line with their faux-indulgent “healthy” blueberry chocolate tart (B180).
 
Crimson Room
 
The Beer Bridge
 

Drinks

Sip on refreshing cocktails (from B300) with 25th-floor views at The Speakeasy Rooftop Bar or jive to jazz with an aperitivo in hand at the swanky, ‘20s style Crimson Room (B320 for the Amaro—Bianco Vermouth, Amero Montenegro and orange bitters). Craving an ice cold beer? Brooklyn industrial-style The Beer Bridge has you covered with 100 labels by the bottle and six draft taps.
 

Transport

BTS Chit Lom and BTS Phloen Chit are both a 10 minute walk away.

Visit

Take a stroll around the lake or enjoy a picnic at Lumphini Park before learning about the life of Phraya Bhakdi Noraset, one of Thailand’s most renowned developers, at the teak houses and landscaped gardens of Nai Lert Park Heritage Home. Wind down with a pampering treatment (massages from B1,600) or chill in the onsen (all-day entry B750) at Panpuri Wellness, or indulge in some retail therapy at the area’s swanky new lifestyle mall, Velaa Sindhorn Village.

What do you love about Langsuan?

 

DANNY AND DANA GARBER, OWNERS OF THE SMOKIN’ PUG

“Minus the constant construction, Soi Langsuan is a fantastic street with brilliant restaurants and a mall that has just about everything. Plus, it’s next to the peaceful Lumphini Park.

 

PIYANUCH PIYATANASIRIKUL, AREA COACH AT THE COFFEE CLUB THAILAND

“Langsuan is perfect for a weekend hideaway, with lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance, covered by big trees.”

 

PAUL KANJANAPAS, OWNER OF THE COFFEE ACADEMICS

“Langsuan is a crucial business district, a tourist destination and a vibrant neighborhood—it’s an ideal place to have brunch or to chill out with a cup of coffee.”
