Known for overlapping narratives to revisit historical material, Arin Rungjang’s art explores the other side of Thai history and its existence in the present context of his world. In this latest solo exhibition, Oblivion, the site-specific exhibition combines olfactory sensorium with personal and historical artefacts—King Rama VI’s letter, his sister’s clothes, his objects—and explores them through a video, installation and paintings. The exhibition will run between October 28, 2021 – February 5, 2022.

Those who enjoy modern French and global-inspired dishes will love ‘Stage 6.0’, the latest tasting menu from Restaurant Stage that celebrates the establishment’s 2nd anniversary.

The deserts, too, will delight as pastry chef Ja Limpichart brings classic French desserts to the table with a twist. Pick from the refreshing crêpes suzette with yuzu, yoghurt and caramelised orange or chef Ja’s signature seasonal dessert trolley.
The Stage 6.0 tasting menu is priced at THB2,900++ (wine pairing with four glasses at THB1,700++). For the full experience, the 10-course ‘Stage Experience’ tasting menu is THB4,500++ (wine pairing with six glasses at THB2,200++).
