The BRONX is Hot: New Club Alert!

One thing you may have learned and taken to heart from J. Lo back in 2002, was not to be fooled by the rocks that she had because she will always be “Jenny from the block”. Some of you may have understood what she meant at the time, but for those who are still confused 15 years later, Jennifer Lopez the queen of pop was simply paying homage to her roots - The Bronx.

As one of the five boroughs in New York City, The Bronx is located at the northern part of the city, where "hip hop" aka "The Boogie Down Bronx" took its fame in the 1970s. Since then, it has often been referenced in hip-hop culture and put on the map by many rappers throughout the years. Often cited for its ethnic diversity and creative outputs, rappers like Fat Joe and Big Pun were some of the most famous personalities who built their careers around representing The Bronx and what it had to offer.

Fast forward to 2017, and The Bronx is still the same melting pot of culture that it once was. So much so that many have been inspired to take the idea and culture of “The Bronx” and ship it across the world to create an experience. In Thailand this formulation manifested in the form of a new club which recently opened its doors on the outskirts of Bangkok in Srinakarin. The foundation of the club remains the same as that of the source - that is to celebrate diversity through music in a place that will showcase immense creative energy.

We may not be able to transfer this experience through words because to truly understand the vibe you will have to check The Bronx out for yourself. But what we can help with, is to tell you the 4 things about The Bronx club that we are pretty excited about seeing week-in-week-out!

We often fail to realize how hard it is for certain areas in Bangkok to have a good time. Imagine living in Bangna and having to drive all the way to Thonglor just to find a place to dance. The Bronx aims to lift the nightlife scene in the Srinakarin area to new heights and has brought a top-tier club outside of your usual mid-town hangout places into an exciting fresh area. No longer will you have to travel so far with your friends to have fun. It just might be the case that those in the middle of the city will start to travel a little outwards to check out what the buzz is all about towards Samut Prakarn.

Multiple Music Zones

In true diversity style, The Bronx has 2 zones in the club. Opened every day from 20:00-02:00, the Main Stage is where most of the action happens. The spacious club room does dancing to the music fun again without having to worry about smacking someone in the face with your flailing arms. Readily fitted with a VIP, the Main Stage usually hosts an R&B, POP, Electronic, and House DJ from 21:00-23:00. That is followed by a live band show from 23:00-00:30. And finally, the night is capped off with an EDM DJ from 00:30-02:00 to end your night with a bang.

If hip-hop is your cup of tea, however, the second zone which is the Hip-hop Room currently opens every Friday and Saturday, and exclusively spins old-school hits to new school rap for you and your friends to get your twerk on.

Lighting, Sound, and Decor

The beauty of music is only enhanced by the presence of an exciting atmosphere - this is what makes The Bronx look and feel incredibly genuine. The lighting, lasers, and smoke machines in the Main Room reminds you of a festival stage. The sound system throughout all the rooms is top-notch. And the decor, from brick walls, graffiti, and open piping in the Hip-hop Room to the futuristic look of the Main Room, make the experience of a night out at The Bronx awesome!

Sister Restaurant - Begin Bar

If you were wondering which team was the brainchild behind The Bronx, then you do not have to look very far - more specifically, just look in the same parking lot. Owned by the same owners, Begin Bar is the perfect place for you and your friends to make a pitstop first before a night out. The sister restaurant has a more laid-back atmosphere than the club. It allows you and your friends to eat up and refuel while you chillax to the sound of ambient music, possibly in preparation for the big night out. The beauty of it is that if your engines start to rev up and you are itching to dance, you can just walk over without having to drive - the two places do share the parking lot after all! Make both places your destination, because choosing one or the other is such old news when you can have both!
