A mem­o­rable night of culi­nary and cul­tural de­lights at Jim Thomp­son

It was a night of culi­nary de­lights and cul­tural dis­plays at Jim Thomp­son: A Thai Restau­rant and Wine Bar, which wel­comed more than 150 guests to en­joy its re­freshed in­te­ri­ors. Housed within a his­toric build­ing at Dempsey Hill, the restau­rant fea­tures ar­chi­tec­tural and decor el­e­ments that, in the style of clas­si­cal Si­amese palaces, hon­our Thai­land’s rich her­itage and cul­ture. True to the fab­ric and life­style com­pany’s sto­ried his­tory of crafts­man­ship, its use of hand­wo­ven Thai silks and fab­rics pays homage to the legacy left be­hind by its epony­mous founder, who made head­ways in in­tro­duc­ing th­ese ar­ti­san-made tex­tiles to the world.

Canapes and cock­tails served at the live sta­tions gave guests a sam­pling of the fine-din­ing es­tab­lish­ment’s up­dated menu, which fea­tures some 80 au­then­tic Thai dishes, in­clud­ing its pop­u­lar boat noo­dle soup and tom yum goong, as well as a se­lec­tion of sig­na­ture cock­tails. Paired with melo­di­ous tra­di­tional mu­sic and dance per­for­mances as well as a silk tool demon­stra­tion, it made for an evening to re­mem­ber. CUL­TURAL AF­FAIR Draw­ing cues from Thai­land’s cul­tural her­itage, the restau­rant’s ad­join­ing wine bar is ac­cented with North­ern Thai ar­ti­facts and shelv­ing pan­els clad in Thai silk.
