You may be back from your Songkran getaway but that doesn’t mean life has to go back to being dry. Here are our top things to do in Bangkok this week:
A Lively Latin Social
Henry Knowles at Havana Social
Latin music enthusiasts need no introduction to this world-renown Latin music DJ. Henry Knowles brings 30 years of experience to the soundboard at Havana Social. Bring a dance partner or find one there.

Viewing Bold Vulnerability
The Sheltering Place - Yatender
Her works have been compared to those of the late Ren Hang. Vietnamese photographer Ao Kim Ngân, aka Yatender, now brings her brand of intimate imagery to Bangkok with a collection that captures her friends being humanly awkward in a singular space. Gaze upon the raw aesthetics at Most Gallery from Friday onward.

Guest Bartender: Glen Oliver from Jack Rose, Malaysia
On Saturday, Bronx Liquid Parlour is having a guest shaker behind the bar, Malaysia’s Glen Oliver. Glen is the bartender of Jack Rose, an edgy new restaurant-bar in Kuala Lumpur run by F&B duo Callan C Green and James Estes. Glen starts mixing at Bronx at 10pm.

A visit from a craftsman
Guest Bartender: Roger Yeap from Gibson Bar, Singapore
Although the Gibson in Singapore is a much younger establishment than our gracefully aged Bamboo Bar, the two share a core appreciation for classics, which is why this collaboration is rather ideal. Roger Yeap is one of Gibson Bar’s 15 esteemed craftmen - as they refer to their bartenders there. For one night only, taste his creations at The Bamboo Bar from 9pm onwards.

Kind floral tarts
Vegan Summer Rose Tart Workshop
It’s no secret that the cruelty-free diet is gaining momentum among the rich and famous crowd. If you want to eat like Liam Hemsworth or Jessica Chastain, the easiest way into it is to learn how to make charming vegan treats. The founder of English Rose and Cook First, Amelia Stewart, is offering a tutorial of vegan, gluten free and sugar free rose tarts at The Commons this Sunday afternoon (2-4pm). For B2000, spend time with the health cuisine guru as she shares tips over tea.
