Happy hour happy street
Sukhumvit Soi 55 Thonglor Bangkok
Sukhumvit Soi 55 Thonglor Bangkok was a street I had known about for such a long time but had never ventured there until now. It seemed every Bangkok restaurant review would recommend an establishment in this area & now I can understand why.
I am a great fan of the Wine Connection chain of restaurants & Google told me there was one at 208 Thong Lo 8 Alley so my brother & I caught the Sky train to Thonglo station & walked for 20 minutes or so looking for the restaurant. What we in fact found at the address was El Gaucho, so I’m assuming either Google got it wrong or the information was simply out of date. 🙂
Here is what Googled showed.
Wine Connection has morphed into El Gaucho.
So many restaurants & so little time.
I have decided on my next visit to Bangkok I will tear myself away from my beloved Soi 11 & stay in Thonglor.

Lots of Japanese restaurants
I was amazed by the number of Japanese restaurants in Sukhumvit Soi 55 Thonglor Bangkok, they were everywhere.
Sukhumvit Soi 55 Thonglor Bangkok, The Dock
I am looking forward to having dinner at The Dock, they specialise in seafood & the menu looks excellent. Being an Aussie I love Sydney Rock Oysters as well as those big juicy ones from Tasmania. Kumamoto featured, I was there last October, & Brittany on the English Channel and the Atlantic Ocean, has over 2800 km of coastline, it provides nearly 60,000 tons of oysters each year, almost 50% of the total French oyster production.
This Soi 55 building caught my eye.
Prior to moving to Thailand from Australia in 2011 I lived on the Gold Coast in Surfers Paradise. On the beach there is a building called Focus which is the twin of this Soi 55 round building. 🙂

There is a lot to like about Bangkok’s Artisan Cafe Restaurant precinct.
Liquor outlet at The Commons
They have covered most of the bases here. 🙂
The Commons is the jewel in the crown in this upmarket area of Bangkok.
Another good hotel on Soi 55, about B1600 pn if you book trough THIS LINK.
