Dialogue Coffee and Gallery is a small, yet chic little Indie cafe on Phra Sumen Road, Phra Nakhon; an absolute favourite area of mine to hang out.
The 100 year old house has two floors; downstairs is a cafe which sells hot and cold drinks, and a range of food from spaghetti to German sausage and pizza. There are a few tables and chairs where folks can sit and relax and read the small selection of books available for sale.
Upstairs is an art gallery and exhibition area. Narin, the owner, told me that anyone can display their work there. Anyone, who isn’t well-known that is. He told me that, in the past, people have used his gallery for talks and music nights. If anyone buys the art on display, Dialogue will take a small commission for it rather than charging the artist for the use of the space. Upstairs is simply decorated; green and grey walls with a wooden floor. But the simpleness of it, creates a space that is warm and homely.
There is a lot to do in the Phra Nakhon area of Bangkok, so if you are in the area take a break from whatever you are doing and head to Dialogue. It’s a fabulous place to unwind with a glass of wine or cup of coffee and chill for an hour or two.
