Sukhumvit Gallery showcases images from a bygone era in Bangkok

The Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit has launched a photo gallery and Artistic Afternoon Tea themed around Sukhumvit’s rich history.

The new photo gallery, in one of Bangkok’s most culturally diverse areas, is giving guests a glimpse into another era with a permanent exhibition on the history of Bangkok’s most important boulevards – Sukhumvit Road.

Sukhumvit Gallery, located on the fourth floor of the new Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit, features an eclectic mix of rare photographs of people and places that tell the story of the road, vintage maps, and important documents covering the area’s history.

“Nana’s roots are as a vibrant international marketplace,” explained the general manager of Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit, Sammy Carolus. “With this gallery we are sharing the fascinating story of the neighborhood as it once was.”

To mark the launch of the hotel’s new space, Hyatt has collaborated with renowned Thai floral artist, Sakul Inthakul, to create an afternoon tea presentation inspired by Bangkok’s past and the images on display.

The Ekamai pedestrian bridge on Sukhumvit Soi 63 was Inthakul’s muse for the serving platter. The classic well-known bridge is on display on one of the walls, and is re-interpreted as the plate – a handcrafted sculpture of stainless steel, copper plating and artificial marble, that is decorated with local flowers.

More than a dozen bite-sized treats, both sweet and savoury, flank the bridge-cum-plate. These include homemade desserts, like mini sweet potato scones and homemade macaron with pomelo custard filling, created by the Hyatt’s culinary team. The coffee is from the plantations at Le Tor Gol Village, in Tak province, which has a reputation as one of the country’s best coffees. The tea comes from Chiang Mai, in the village of Mae Sae, where tea has grown naturally for over a century.

• Sukhumvit Gallery is open daily 11am – 10:30pm, with free entry.

• The Sukhumvit Gallery Afternoon Tea is served daily between 2pm – 4pm, at 950++ Baht / set for two people.
