The Bangkok Chess Club is moving to a new venue, the famous Cabbages and Condoms restaurant in Sukhumvit Soi 12.
The family restaurant was established by the Population and Community Development Association (PDA), one of Thailand’s largest and most successful private non-profit development organisations. PDA was founded in 1974 by Mechai Viravaidya, who recognised that unless radical steps were taken to contain Thailand’s rapid population growth, the country could never live up to its development potential. The name Cabbages and Condoms comes from Mechai’s belief that for any family planning programme to be successful, birth control should be as accepted and accessible as vegetables in a market.
The restaurant has become a very popular destination with tourists, with an emphasis on healthy and tasty food, and a traditional Thai atmosphere. The location is easy to get to, within a short walk of the skytrain and subway stations on Sukhumvit. More details are available on their website.
We have our own air-conditioned room with access to larger facilities for special events such as GM simuls.
Come and check out our new venue starting Friday, 22 July.
