Bangkok - Deep in the DRAGON’S belly

Bed Supperclub rises from the ashes to become an exciting new night venue called Chi Ultralounge

THE TREND IN Bangkok might be for smaller, hidden-away venues at which to chill but the super-spacious club Chi Ultralounge, launched recently on Sukhumvit Soi 13, is certain to draw night owls with its generous space, terrific food and drinks galore.

Rising from the ashes of Bed Supperclub, which shut up shop in 2013, the Ultralounge's designers have transformed the spaceship-like white cylinder structure and given it a dark, mysterious and decadent ambience to complement what they calling "funk shui".

Professing to be the pioneer of "Asian lounge culture" in the city, the club summons up fantasies of eerily cool Yakuza haunts or beautifully lit archaic casinos in Macao. Decadent gold leaf designs and ancient Chinese antique embellishments glow under the watchful eye of the Imperial Dragon, a symbol of protection, affluence and power.

As Thailand's first world-class Diageo Club, guests can enjoy an exciting array of cocktails concocted by the talents of in-house mixologists selected by nightclub proprietor, Daryl Scott, a veteran of the clubbing circuit with dozens of venue designs and launches to his credit.
 Scott has placed huge emphasis on safety, convenience and swift service. The venue now features six fire escapes and an advanced sprinkler system that covers the walls and ceilings of every part of the lounge. There are also electronic bottle service systems that enable staff to deliver a superbly tailored guest experience along with a VIP concierge.

The finishing touch to the gallery in the club area is a stunning seven-metre painting commissioned exclusively for Chi Ultralounge by Dutch artist Peter Klashorst.

Scott's vision for Chi centres on "funk shui", the fun and feisty volley of cohesive yet eclectic elements that walk patrons through heavy swing doors, on interconnected mezzanine gantries, through private VIP bars and wow them with insane audio and a domed ceiling video display.

"Chi Ultralounge features an uber-cool Asian motif with a one-off metallic design while the Zen cultural styling of the lounge gives it an authentic feng shui vibe.

"The quirky Chinese dragon design concept, incredible 3D video projections onto the domed ceiling, gold leaf and Zen-inspired DJ booth lend to an international ambience for the iconic club design space that was once the famed Bed Supperclub," Scott says.

The Chi Ultra Dining Experience launches this month with the introduction of "Manna", a culinary mash-up designed by the renowned Blue Elephant restaurant group and fronted by New York executive chef Tony Bish.

Guests can dine in the belly of the imperial dragon, before the clubbing really begins from 10.30pm until very, very late.

Chi Ultralounge is on Sukhumvit Soi 13, close to Asoke BTS and Sukhumvit MRT. It is open daily from7pm till 2am.
