THE Onnut district of Bangkok has welcomed a new drinks and dining venue on Sukhumvit Soi 50, opposite the Tesco Lotus car park.
Called the Beacon Place, the new venture is a short walk from Onnut BTS station and includes Cheap Charlie’s, the immensely successful open-air bar that had to move from its long-time location on Sukhumvit Soi 11 last November to make away for a new development.
Thanks to Cheap Charlie’s reappearance and reputation, Beacon Place is already attracting expats and tourists. The project itself comprises several dozen containers neatly arranged around a pedestrian area, with outdoor seating. Other businesses include Bro’s Grill and Beer, White Corner (best known for its waffles), Smitr Café (quesadillas), Dog Step (German sausages and imported beers) and Rolling Stone (pizzas). Onnut’s other entertainment centre, W District, is located behind the shophouses on Sukhumvit 77.
