Rebellion. A red hot words in a scorching city. Bangkok is no stranger to upheaval in the natural order – even in the social side of life. How apt then that the perversely named KU DÉ TA finds itself a figurehead of a nightlife revolution; an icon in a time of change.
Breaking away from the monotonous rule of Sukhumvit Soi 11, two years ago the protagonists behind the world-famous Bed Supperclub set their sights on a new destination in which to entertain the fleet-footed clubgoers of Bangkok. Enter KU DÉ TA, where patrons are whisked to the top floor of the hip-to-be Sathorn Square and magnificent views from the ample outdoor terrace complemented by elegant, stylish interiors spread across 1,000+ square meters of space.
Designer-clad dance divas sit on stylish sofas; elite Bangkokians mingle with ostentatious sophistication, loosening as the booze flows and the vibe grows, a vibe built by the best sound and lighting system in Bangkok.
Currently closed Sunday through Tuesday, a true nightclub this might be, but to utilize a setup of such magnitude requires talent of equal measure behind the decks, and again KU DÉ TA has spared nothing in its quest to bring Bangkok the cream of the crop.
Promising something for everyone, each night of musical delight caters to a slightly differing taste. On Wednesdays the Bangkok Invaders headline at ‘Crush’, with free-flow sparkling wine for the ladies from 9-11pm. On Thursdays Head DJ Eddy Frampton, Kimball Collins and Alex Imix take to the turntables for ‘This Is House’ (with a buy 1-get 1 free promotion between 9-11pm on standard drinks). ‘Flash Friday’ ushers in the weekend with DJ’s SG and Master D, while ‘Stereo Saturday’ sees Frampton and Collins joined by Tomi Nori.
No nightlife revolution can survive on soundtrack alone, however. Designed to negate the harrowing heat of Bangkok, KU DÉ TA’s sophisticated cocktails – such as the outstanding Old Fashioned (B320++), the sweet, sour and spicy Thai Basil Smash (B320++) and the deliciously juicy Berry Man Cobbler (B360++) – pack more punch than Tony Jaa with their elegant balance of power and panache.
Along with neighbourhood upstarts like Maggie Choos, Namsaah Bottling Trust, Smalls, and Whisgars, KU DÉ TA is spearheading the Silom-Sathorn nightlife scene. Having always been ‘where the money is’, the central business district is now where the beautiful people want to be.
