UnKonscious and Mystic Valley will be taking the club kids out of the city this weekend for wild parties in the jungle and on the beach, but there’s still a lot more to do close to home. This week we’ve got a line up for you of games, poetry, comedy, and a whole lot of food to get you through the weekend. 





There are two big festivals happening outside of Bangkok this weekend, and the first you need to know about it UnKoncious. Trance will be taking over Alexa Beach Club in Na Jomtien in Chonburi from Feb 1-2—complete with pool parties, big sets, and beach. General admission tickets start at B2,000 for the first day. Tickets here, Alexa Beach Club


Pisco Sour Fiesta

It’s all about the Pisco Sours lately, and where could be better than the plush Banyan Tree to give them a real shot. From Jan 1-Feb 4, Banyan Tree Bangkok gets Peruvian with bartenders at Moon Bar, Vertigo TOO, and Saffron Sky Garden putting on their very best Pisco Sours and South American charm. Book via Line: @banyantreebangkok, Banyan Tree Bangkok
