The best shops in Ekkamai

Find the best places to shop in the up-and-coming Ekkamai area, from boutiques peddling vintage clothes to shops selling handmade jewelry

By Sopida Rodsom

Located a few blocks down from Thonglor, Ekkamai has everything from restaurants, bars and clubs but in a quieter, more relaxed environment. Ekkamai is home to stores purveying vintage clothing and handmade accessories. Venture down Soi 10, known by the locals as Werng Boran (old court), and discover shops such as What’s Vintage, Penney on Her Vintage and (un) FASHION Vintage Collection, a boutique selling leather products along with fragrant cups of coffee.

Liberty Area One, a hip multi-brand shop located in the heart of Ekamai, gathers together designs by new Thai brands and fashion students, as well as a smattering of pieces from imported brands and vintage clothing.

We are heading to Mink’s, a curious little café and shop, hoping that this time we could buy some cute little things to take back home. You would be impressed by almost everything here, mostly knickknacks and bric-a-brac, including stationery and wooden furniture. Don’t worry, you won’t go hungry – there is a small counter serving drinks and homemade pastries.


Cafe Classique

Restaurants Central Asian Ekamai

Decorated with limited-edition Coke bottles from the owner’s own collection, Cafe Classique is a charming place that offers authentic Thai cuisine. The restaurant is suited for gatherings of friends and family. The menu lists classic Thai dishes including the restaurant-recommended herb and spicy pork salad with thin rice noodles.

Across from Ekkamai Shopping Mall, stands a group of rusty and cool and not-so-square buildings that contain shops selling vintage goods and a nice cafe. On the left side is a store selling various kinds of vintage women’s shoes and leather goods. For men? Go straight to the one in the middle. It sells good-quality clothing and accessories. The café, meanwhile, sits on the right. 


Was Were Will

Vintage clothing shop, Was Were Will, reflects the owner’s neatly selected garment collections – Japanese-style retro pieces that are simple-looking yet cleverly tailored and rich in detail. Zakka-style clothing, suitable for Thailand’s never-ending summers, is also available.
