W Bangkok today announced the opening of The House on Sathorn, heralding a new chapter in the Thai capital’s exquisite dining and nightlife scene. 
W HOTEL IS JUST NEXT TO HOUSE OF SATHORN

Located at the bustling Sathorn and Narathiwas intersection, adjacent to W Bangkok, The House comprises four majestic buildings that boast neo-classic architecture reconfigured as a stylish multi-venue entertainment complex, revealing Bangkok’s intriguing mélange of international influences.



The House on Sathorn brings extraordinary versatility to a single site – truly an open house for pleasure.

The colorful landmark building encompasses the signature restaurant The Dining Room; The Bar for after-work drinks and more; The Courtyard, a bistro for al fresco dining, including afternoon tea; and Upstairs, an exclusive club lounge with live music and DJs as well as four hospitality suites and private function spaces for exclusive dinners, private events and meetings.

Managed by experienced food and beverage teams, the building keeps with its former function as a residence and hotel. 


Its interior design concepts retain the opulence of the gilded ages while modern elements, including contemporary Thai artwork such as tapestries, paintings, photography and sculpture, come into play, injecting modern vibrancy into old world glamour.

“We are so thrilled with the debut of The House on Sathorn, a house whose colorful appearance is matched with its indisputable legacy,” said Ms. Tina Liu, General Manager, W Bangkok. 

YUMMY!

“The House has been re-imagined as a sensory-rich, multi-venue complex, offering artisanal Asian-inspired cuisine, creative cocktails and spectacular restored artwork – all infused with a buzzing, energized vibe.”

Reviving a Landmark in the Heart of Bangkok
               
Built in 1889 during the reign of King Rama V, The House’s neo-classical structure originally housed wealthy businessman Luang Sathorn Rajayutka, who created Sathorn Canal. The home was later passed down to his descendants. 

In the early 1920s, the site was converted into the majestic Hotel Royal. Later, from 1948 to 1999, the building served as the Russian Embassy.

Recognizing the immense historic value of the house, the development team worked closely with Thailand’s Fine Arts Department to carefully restore the home to its former glory, as part of the conversion to The House on Sathorn. 

Major renovations were conducted on the four buildings and large courtyard, keeping the original main structure intact. Meanwhile, inside, the original color palette, intricate wooden staircases and even the Sathorn Rajayutka family’s personalized fresco motifs have all been meticulously restored by the Fine Arts Department. 

The compelling juxtaposition of contemporary components and new elements reflect the boundless creativity of  renowned design firm AvroKO of New York.

 'FATIH' MEANS 'CONQUEROR' IN TURKISH! AND HE HAS CONQUERED THE DINING SCENE IN BANGKOK!
              CLEMENT


Originally hailing from Istanbul, Turkey, Director of Culinary Fatih Tutak oversees all food and drink operations at The House on Sathorn. 

The chef’s distinctive menus are inspired by his extensive travels in Asia and beyond. Constantly seeking new recipes and preparation methods, Chef Fatih communicates with guests through the mediums of flavor, texture and color – and more than a dash of good humor.

“My culinary interest was inspired at a young age by my mother’s home cooking, which developed into a passion and fuelled my dream of becoming a chef,” explains Chef Fatih. 

“Combining the finest seasonal ingredients from Asia, each dish also reflect my love of travel and delight in the discovery of new things. 

This ‘fun dining’ concept perfectly balances technique, culinary sensibility and a sense of lightheartedness, which is well aligned with the house’s narrative.”

Chef Fatih comes to The House on Sathorn after creating a unique dining experience at The Bellbrook Hong Kong, recognized by the Hong Kong-Macau Michelin Guide 2015. 

Other stints include the world-renowned restaurant NOMA in Copenhagen and 3 Michelin-starred Nihonryori Ryugin in Tokyo. 

He also served as the Executive Sous Chef at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, among other celebrated establishments.

Given Chef Fatih’s globetrotting background, guests are treated to a refreshing culinary journey at The Dining Room. The morning fish market in Tokyo, for example, forms the story behind a blue fin tuna dish called “Early Morning at Tsukiji Market”, while Thai style grilled banana becomes a gastronomic treat with Okinawan sugar and liquid nitrogen.

Outside, The Courtyard offers a sanctuary from the bustling Bangkok streets with a relaxing outdoor dining space that presents rustic, simple yet hearty and fulfilling dishes. Guests can retreat with an afternoon tea session inspired by patisserie Chef Nicolas Descriaux.

The culinary vision of Chef Fatih also extends to mixology and craft cocktails. The Bar on the ground level concocts cocktails with an Asian twist, as well as serves champagne, sake, wines and tempting bites to start off the night.
