Calypso Bangkok Has Moved to Asiatique
Calypso Cabaret continues its 25-year tradition as the no. 1 Bangkok entertainment destination, now at Asiatique The Riverfront. Asiatique is the bold new entertainment and dining complex on Bangkok’s Chao Phraya River.
Asiatique is Host to Bangkok’s no. 1 Entertainment
Asiatique takes its name from a pier in the early 1900s belonging to the East Asiatic Company, a business dedicated to the export of teak wood. Today, that pier on the Chao Phraya river has been restored to glory in the form of Asiatique - Bangkok’s upscale riverside entertainment, shopping and dining complex.
Calypso Cabaret chose Asiatique as a massive vote of confidence in the biggest lifestyle project in Asia. Calypso occupies Warehouse 3, the largest venue, within a veritable ocean of artisanal markets, restaurants and bars.
Entertainment for the Whole Family
If you’ve experienced the magic of Calypso Cabaret before, you’ll be happy to hear the show holds true to its 25-year-old tradition of providing first-grade family friendly cabaret entertainment, with a unique Thai flair. The new Calypso Cabaret theater accommodates 480 guests. The new Calypso Cabaret restaurant offers traditional Thai dinners accompanied by a Khon dance show before the main entertainment begins. (Learn more about the Calypso restaurant and Khon dance in next week’s post.)
Getting to Calypso Cabaret
You can always take the taxi, but we highly recommend you take the Asiatique shuttle river boat which is scenic, serene and free! to get to the pier take the Silom Line of the BTS Skytrain to Saphan Thaksin. Exit toward the river and, upon reaching the water, turn left follow the signage to the Asiatique pier (about 40 meters). After the 5 minute boat ride to Asiatique follow the signage to warehouse no. 3 - Calypso’s new home, and Bangkok’s favorite entertainment venue!

Calypso Thai Restaurant - Traditional Thai Food and Dance
Bangkok has now edged out London as the world’s top travel spot. Tourists come to enjoy the party scene, but Bangkok’s nightlife has much more to offer. Calypso Cabaret gives you the chance to enjoy a dinner of traditional Thai food while watching traditional Thai dance. Enjoy a meal at Calypso Cabaret’s cavernous dining venue and catch a glimpse into Thai tradition and history with Khon dance.
Fresh Thai Food To Suit Your Palate
We serve only fresh food sourced from local ingredients. Choose among Thai classics like Tom Yum Kung, a belly-warming soup of coconut milk, pandan leaves, lemongrass and shrimp that carries the full spectrum of Thai flavors - sweet spicy, bitter and salty. For dessert, we suggest Khao Tang Nha Tang, crispy rice with coconut dipping sauce. The Calypso kitchen staff can accommodate everyone’s tastes from mild to spicy.
If you’re craving something from home, we’ve got that, too! Have a burger with fries and then wash it down with your choice of fresh juices, beer, wine, and mixed drinks infused with tropical fruits.
Khon - Traditional Thai Dance
Khon (โขน) is a traditional Thai dance form that was originally reserved for the royal court. Khon dance routines recount epic poems and hero stories from Thai history. Not a Thai history buff? You don’t need to know everything about Thai history to appreciate the elaborate costumes and refined dance forms.
Today, you don’t have to be royalty to enjoy Khon. It’s performed across the country, but its popularity has declined against modern entertainment like movies and karaoke. In the face of that decline, Calypso Cabaret takes enormous pride in carrying on the tradition of Khon. Be sure to book your dinner seat where you can watch Khon before the Calypso main show!
