The COMMONS – Bangkok’s Newest Dining Destination in Thonglor
The Commons became the talk of the town when it opened its doors in February. Located in Thonglor Soi 17, just a minute away from the main street, you will see a big community mall.
“Our intention is to build first a community, then a mall. We want to be Thonglor’s backyard,
a place where you can spend quality time in the neighborhood while being a little closer to nature.”
These are words from the people behind The Commons, who are also behind Roast Cafe and Roots Coffee.
The COMMONS is 4 storey high and despite it being open-air, it’s well-ventilated and not humid, with the mega fans on the top of the building.
Majority come to The Commons to dine but there are also a small group who come here just to take photographs of the beautiful community mall.
Top Yard (Level 3)
Let me start from the top because this is probably the main reason why majority of the crowd come here.
One of Bangkok’s most popular cafe, Roast has shifted from Seenspace 13 to The COMMONS, and they are now located on the highest level.
It’s a nice place to chill out and take some photos. You can also hold your private parties here!
Play Yard (Level 2)
In love with Thonglor and its surroundings, you can see even more here!
It is also home to Absolute You (the largest health & lifestyle brand in Thailand), Little Pea (space for families in the community to connect through multi-sensory play, fun activities and enriching food) and Enginou (high quality educational products that give children the pleasure of playing and the joy of learning at the same time).
