The lounge area of PatPong Road, located adjacent to its bar, is equipped with custom-made brown leather sofas and low tables, providing an intimate spot for late-night guests to hang out.
The new nightspot features a short menu of Thai offerings prepared by the crew at 50 Egg’s Khong River House, located on the ground floor of the building which houses PatPong Road.
Thai-influenced street food skewers—featuring pork, chicken and shrimp—are a favorite on PatPong’s snack-style menu.
In a nod to PatPong’s elevated street food theme, some items are served in bags, just like they are in Thailand.
For now, customers can only get into PatPong Road on Friday and Saturday nights. The hours are abbreviated, too; it’s only open from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.
To lend authenticity, PatPong serves its “Laid-ee” drink—made from “good rum,” fresh fruit juice, and lime—in a plastic “Sippi” bag, just as they do in Bangkok.
50 Eggs head Jeff Kunkel says he wanted his new operation to reflect the “cultural and visual overload” of its namesake market area in Thailand. PatPong Road’s graphics carry out that theme.
