The EmQuartier is one of the most gorgeous shopping malls in Bangkok, Thailand. The EmQuartier is part of the EM District, and just when you think it is yet another shopping mall with all the predictable luxury brands, think again.
Comprising three buildings – Helix Quartier, Glass Quartier and Waterfall Quartier - The EmQuartier is a lifestyle mall that will meet all your shopping, lifestyle and dining needs. The three buildings are differentiated by their concepts and tenant mix, and the Helix Quartier has a secret world to offer.
We’ve always been a big fan of EmQuartier’s Gourmet Market – A Taste of Gastronomic Sophistication with products sourced from throughout Thailand and around the world.
Other than the Gourmet Market, what most people may not know is The Helix – a different zone that sits on level 6 to 9 in Helix Quartier. It is a whole new world up there, with the best restaurants and F&B kiosks that totally left us in awe.

Located just beside one of Bangkok’s most popular old-school barbers – Good Old Days Barber Shop – we were delighted by the cosy cafe’s reasonably priced drinks.
Sprawled on the walls are various menu items, from typical coffee to some very interesting alcoholic cocktails. Although this cafe has a limited food menu of a few cakes and sweet treats, the great drinks were enough to keep us happy.
With so many overly-publicised big cafes in Bangkok, it was nice to see a simple and humble cafe like Bangkoku Cafe.
