Thonglor’s WTF turned 10 in April. Since the creative hub and bar couldn’t celebrate then, the team is celebrating now, at the end of a tumultuous year, by bringing the whole gang together for food, drinks, and art this Dec 18-19.
The two-day party features a little bit of everything that makes the place special, with friends, customers, and collaborators of WTF all invited to get involved.
On Dec 18, there will be video projections by PSY 101 and Copode, a DJ set by Note Dudesweet, and live video projections by artist Gabriel Camelin from 7pm-1am.
On Dec 19, the action runs a little longer. From 4pm-1am, drop by for a throwback block party, with lots of drink-friendly food from the likes of Soul Food Mahanakorn, Err, El Willy, Little Market, Jua, and Appia—think items you can hold in one hand while you cradle a cold adult beverage in the other. And there will be DJ sets and video projections for entertainment.
If you miss the party, visit on Dec 23 (6pm-late), for the launch of the venue’s latest exhibition, Project PRY 01, as well as WTF’s new digital platform. The project aims to create a new platform to exhibit contemporary artwork and enact social change in a post-pandemic reality. The exhibition, meanwhile, features work from three different artists, each curated by the project’s founding members, Soifa Saenkkhamkon, Somrak Sila, and Penwadee Nophaket Manont. Expect talks and molam performances, plus food and drinks in the bar downstairs.
There’s lots to look forward to over the next 10 years, too. According to WTF co-founders Somrak Sila and Christopher Wise, “The clear sunlight of a perfect Kingdom will wash over our rainbow-unicorn selves as we come together and look forward to the next decade of keeping it all too real,” they write on the Facebook event page.
“We all know with every year, everything just gets better. The roads get safer, the poor grow prosperous, and the air becomes pure and fragrant. Our fairly elected government listens ever more closely to its people, as compassionate corporations work selflessly to clean the environment.”
