Everyone wants to host an elegant, fun and memorable event, whether it’s a family birthday party, a corporate cocktail hour or a dinner party. While hotels definitely have the space, facilities, and catering that you need to hold your event, a hotel function room or ballroom simply may not offer the type of atmosphere that you initially envisioned for your party venue in Bangkok. 

Luckily, with Bangkok’s sheer size and history, there are plenty of other, more unique architectural treasures that serve perfectly as viable options for your event venue. We’ve chosen three venues that offer beauty, history, and convenience to inspire you to consider other locations besides what is offered in the city’s hotels. 

These three venues; the Jim Thompson House, The Siam Society, and The Apothecary Venue, will help you create a memorable party or event of any kind. And with the catering experience and expertise of Narai Catering, you’re guaranteed an event that your guests will remember for a lifetime. 

The Jim Thompson House

Jim Thompson was a textile exporter and trader who lived in this beautiful traditional Thai home. This venue is located near the BTS National Stadium station and includes a home/museum with a large lawn and garden. Next door is The Jim Thompson Art Center in a large, modern building. 

Jim Thompson lived a very colourful and larger-than-life existence in the 50s and 60s. The house was the crowning achievement of his architectural career and was assembled from six dwellings transported downriver by boat from as far away as Ayutthaya.

With its beautiful architecture situated in a 360-degree garden, this venue is an elegant and exclusive party venue right in the heart of Bangkok. 

The Siam Society

The official name for this stunningly beautiful facility is The Siam Society Under Royal Patronage. It’s a library and museum contained in a traditional northern-style Thai home. Expansive lawns and tropical gardens surround the compound. It’s located on Asoke Road right near the BTS Asoke station and is the perfect event venue for guests using public transportation. 

It’s the ideal place to hold an elegant corporate dinner or a medium-size conference, product launch, or reception. The quiet, old-world beauty serves as the perfect backdrop for photo opportunities and publicity shoots. 

The Apothecary Venue

This venue is unlike any other venue in the city and has to be seen to be appreciated. The architecture is European, with elegant wood-panelling and exposed beams throughout the rooms. It consists of a stunning main hall and a glass-walled room that can be used for conferences. It looks out into the spacious garden area which has a lawn that can be used to stage weddings, photoshoots, dinners and cocktail parties.

The Apothecary Venue is located on Phaholyothin Road in the Chatuchak area of the city. It’s designed and set up to serve as an event venue, and the staff will ensure your event is well-taken care of. It’s a popular venue with fashion photographers, television production companies, and professional event organisers. As a premium event and party venue in Bangkok, dates must be booked well in advance.  

Narai Catering

As one of the oldest and most trusted catering companies in Bangkok, Narai Catering has catered events of all kinds in these venues for many years. We can recommend table layouts, service stations, and backdrop positions to use your space to your best advantage, regardless of which venue you pick. 

For your next occasion, consider an alternative event venue and get away from using the same old hotel ballroom. Narai Catering can help ensure everything runs smoothly and that your event goes off without a hitch.
