First it was BEAM. Now there’s Violett. The Thonglor dance scene has officially been revived. Party lovers from various backgrounds have gotten together to create this new nightclub in the heart of Bangkok’s party district. Named after the last—and possibly most mysterious—shade in the color spectrum, Violett beguiles Thonglor club rats with neon-lit vibes inspired by the underground clubs in Europe—Berlin, to be precise. We’re talking a discreet entrance, raw cement walls, and state-of-the-art lighting that’s been manually improvised by a visual designer.
The music at Violett revolves around techno (Wed and Fri) and hip-hop (Thu, Sat and Sun). The club is very selective about the DJs they bring in so expect to dance to beats from top names like techno queen Nakadia, Kolour’s Coran, and the Soi Dogs duo.
Drinks-wise, Violett has some Insta-worthy signature slingshots. Jelly Fish (B280) is a mix of triple sec, orange and blue curaçao, amaretto, Baileys Irish Cream and absinthe, while Suicide Bomber (B280) is a vodka-based cocktail with Malibu rum, amaretto, curaçao and Baileys Irish Cream. If you don’t fancy shots, opt for a cocktail like Nebular 272 (B340), an absinthe-topped blend of vodka, triple sec, passion fruit juice and lime juice.
