BANGKOK RESTAURANT

It's Happened to be a Closet

The gypsy fashion brand finds its latest home in an old house-turned-lifestyle shop. 

This gypsy fashion brand has been on the Bangkok scene since 2004, traveling around town from Siam Square to Khao San Road. Its latest incarnation matches eclectic fashion finds with a bohemian dining room dishing out chicken salads, pot pies and other Western comfort food. As well as having a garden terrace, they also run workshops from time to time on DIY fashion and jewelry making.

The store: The name of this gypsy fashion brand has been on the Bangkok scene since 2004, traveling around town from Siam Square to Khao San Road and The Emporium before setting up its permanent location on Sukhumvit Soi 23. The old house-turned-lifestyle shop is bigger than every previous outlet, offering a fashion shop, gift corner, restaurant zone, nail service, foot massage and different workshops throughout the week. Highly recommended workshops include jewelry making (B4,500/every Thursday) where you’ll be taught how to make DIY earrings, pins and bracelets, and bouquet art (B5,000/every Saturday).         

The food: The menu here focuses on Western comfort dishes like fresh oyster, salads and pasta. Do check their Facebook page for one-off specials like blue mussels. Booking ahead is never a bad idea.
