Bridge Café & Art Space
Positively bursting at the seams with young talent and an achingly hip gallery scene – even the last few months have seen some fabulous launches, from p-arty place Cho Why to critic’s favourite D-9 – Bangkok is fast emerging as a creative capital to be reckoned with. And for those who like their canvases with a side of club sandwich, Sathorn brunch hotspot Bridge Café is nabbing a slice of the art action, and championing emerging artists in the process, with their new adjoining multi-disciplinary space.
First off, fuel your viewing stamina in the small white-washed diner with a full English breakfast, banana waffles or rustic lunch fare like flavour-packed pastas, then it’s onward and upward to explore the four floors of art. Currently on show is the inaugural Threshold showcase that includes abstract paintings by Soichiro Shimizu and Joe Delaney, Ryuhei Asano’s illustrations, photography from Tada Hengsapkul and custom-created installations by Sina Wittayawiroj. Come late January, part two of the exhibition will be premiered, bringing in new works by Justin Mills, Karma Sirikogar and Peng Jay, but until then visitors can peruse the all-femme Monologues or steal away to the secret rooftop for iced coffee, cocktails and sceney cityscapes. View-tiful!
