Shing A Ring A Ring Cafe & Bar in Bangkok

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas since the last month of the year has arrived. We’re not only looking forward to unboxing our gifts, but are also excited to celebrate the end of the year with our families or loved ones.

Since there’s a low chance of witnessing snowfall in Thailand, we’ve found a beautiful place that resembles Santa’s house with snow-capped installations, serving up racks of lamb and delectable desserts.

Enter Shing A Ring A Ring: Hang Out Bar & Cafe in Bangkok – a restaurant, cafe and bar all rolled into one – that’ll certainly put you in a festive mood.

Here’s a quick overview of the cafe and what to expect if you decided to visit.

Every December, the cafe’s compound will be decked out in fairy lights, with stunning snowflake ornaments and snow frosted pine trees.

As you stroll towards the main compound, look out for a snow-capped entrance at the end of your path, dotted with presents underneath a row of frosted trees.

We’re definitely getting the vibes of celebrating Christmas in a small town in Europe, thanks to the elaborate decor, but we love that the design motifs are present within the cafe as well.

Observing the high ceilings and roofed interior of the cafe, we’re reminded of the homely atmosphere that European cafes and restaurants offer–a dining experience that’s pretty rare in Thailand.

Visitors can have a meal either inside or outside the cafe at their al fresco dining area. Before you leave, however, don’t forget to explore the compound and snap a few shots to immortalise the experience.

To level up your IG game during Christmas festival, we recommend wearing a red dress and striking a fabulous pose to roleplay as Santa Claus’ little helper.

Speaking of the lil’ ones, we imagine kiddos will also have a blast searching for their Christmas gifts and playing hide-and-seek with imaginary elves around the installations.

Steak dishes, racks of BBQ pork ribs on the festive menu from ฿160

The cafe’s menu is pretty extensive, with steak dishes available from ฿160 (~USD4.78).

Touted as the signature dish, it’s dubbed the Rib Sauce Shing A Ring A Ring a.k.a. Grilled Boneless Pork Ribs. Served with french fries, grilled garlic bread, and salad on the sides, this dish offers a soft texture of pork ribs well mixed with the rich spicy tang of barbeque sauce.

If you favour white meat with a hi-so twist, consider their Grilled Chicken with Red Wine Sauce. Paired with seasonal vegetables like broccoli, baby corn and cherry tomatoes, it’s def a feast for the eyes as well.

Only an hour taxi ride from BTS Bang Wa

Shing A Ring A Ring: Hang Out Bar & Cafe is located opposite the Sanam Luang 2 Market. To get there, we’d recommend using this location as a landmark for tuk-tuk or taxi rides from BTS Bang Wa, and then simply cross the street to arrive at your destination.

With eye-catching Christmas decorations all over the place, there’s no doubt that the cafe will be rather easy to spot.
