June begins with a bang of the best festivities, coinciding with Negroni Week and containing plenty of art and design exhibitions and parties along the way. As usual, we filtered the best for you. If you’re not full of life by the end of the week, clearly you didn’t follow our recommendations.
Negronis all week
Bangkok Negroni Week 2017
Starting tonight at Vogue Lounge (8pm), Bangkok will officially be entering into Negroni Week 2017. If you’ve never been a part of the event, it’s a time to bar-crawl Bangkok for all the twists and turns of the classic cocktail you can get... and not just ‘cause. Negroni Week is a worldwide charity that raised US$400,000 last year. Charity funds are made from every glass of Negroni sold by participating bars, so see which of your favourite Bangkok taverns are participating in Negroni Week 2017 on negroniweek.com.

Decode Da Vinci watches
IWC Schaffhausen Da Vinci Exhibition in Bangkok
Starting Tuesday, Swiss luxury watch manufacturer IWC Schaffhausen is showcasing a pristine selection of its Da Vinci watches - inspired by who else but the Renaissance artist and scientist - at Siam Paragon’s Atrium. The special exhibition will feature both 2017 creations under the line concept as well as nine rare historic pieces, which includes the 1914 Savonnette Lady’s pocket watch and a 1967 Da Vinci. This will be the first time Da Vinci watches have been formally introduced to South East Asia, so even if you aren’t looking to buy an IWC timepiece anytime soon, it’s still a grand event worth a stroll through.
