Bangkok recently welcomed three special venues with deep heritage and architectural beauty, and to hold events there is a privilege and a certain formula for long lasting memories.
One of Bangkok's best kept wonders, the picturesque Nai Lert Park Heritage Home marks over 100 years of history and tradition. For three generations, Nai Lert family lived in the private residence which was converted after restoration work to reopen for those appreciative of historical charms.
Nai Lert Park Heritage Home and its surroundings spread across 14 rai (or 24,000 square metres) of lush ground. The Heritage Home showcases series of antiques and artifacts since World War II, all of which are of the family's private collections.
Culinary and the art of entertaining play an important role in all four generations, hence three establishments have been deliberately crafted. "Ma Maison" an authentic home cooked Thai family's recipes (70 seats), "Lady L", a garden bistro offering Western flavours (48 seats).
The Lawn & The Marquee combines 400 square meter of capacious versatile space for a variety of events, from weddings and sit down banquets to parties. The lawn is a perfect outdoor space with options to erect an air-conditioned marquee, wood flooring, including sound and lighting systems, able to accommodate 500 for cocktail, 250 for a banquet or 300 for a buffet.
The House on Sathorn is the newest culinary addition and special venue, a prominent part of W Bangkok. The beautifully restored 128-year-old heritage colonial mansion is now home to 3 food & beverage outlets such as The Bar, The Courtyard and The Dining Room which has just been award as No.36 in Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2017. With over 1,000 sq meters in meeting spaces, The House on Sathorn can also be transformed into the ultimate dream wedding venue or a stylish place for private meetings or special events for 50-400 guests
Lhong 1919, the mix-use lifestyle development on the west bank of Chao Phraya River, opened in November 2017. Owned and developed by the Wanglee family, one of the country’s oldest Thai-Chinese tycoon families, Lhong 1919 sits on the old pier where, according to old journals, the ancestors of most Thai-Chinese families first set their feet in Thailand after migrating from China. Besides being home to many Chinese immigrants in later years, the area around the pier is home to the shrine of Mazu, the goddess who is believed to bless sea travelers.
The structures have been renovated with much respect to the original creation with century-old murals on the group of old warehouses and a Chinese shrine dating back to 19th century in the 6,800 sq meters of co-working space, eateries and art and design shops spotlighting the work of young artists.
Outdoor themed functions can be held for up to 1,000 guests and transfers are best by boat.
Bangkok, and many destinations in Thailand, are primed as destinations for inspirational and memorable travel programs and events.
