Crumbling 200-year-old Chinese house converted into cafe
A crumbling 200-year-old Chinese house had been converted into a cafe in Bangkok’s Chinatown.
Patina Bangkok Cafe owners renovated the property for customers to enjoy the traditional architecture of the Chinese settlers in Thailand in the 19th century.
The two-story home has arched doors and two ancient Chinese wells with Thai-style wooden windows and vintage furniture.
To add to the atmosphere, the inside of the cafe walls was decorated with paint peeling off the house from repeated painting and erosion of the wall that is more than two centuries old.
Patina Cafe opens from 9 am to 6 pm while the bar zone opens from 5 pm to 11 pm.
