With all the classic diner decor, V8 has plenty of American 50s vibes, and lots of photo ops too!
Pulling up a seat on one of the vintage booths to take in the atmosphere, the venue offers a variety of American food and beverage, including pizzas, chili hotdogs, ice cream milkshakes – and their signature V8 Burger made with Wagyu beef.
First opened in 2010, the V8 Diner has gone through some big changes, but remains Bangkok’s only true American 50’s-theme restaurant.
The V8 opened on Sukhuvmit Soi 12 along with the Insanity nightclub in 2010. Its gorgeous exterior welcomed visitors to Bangkok’s top nightspot and became the go-to location for late-night dining.
Both Insanity and the V8 moved in June 2017 to Sukhumvit Soi 11 where the V8 Diner found its own new identity. Unlike before, the V8’s exterior took a backseat to the epic new Insanity frontage. But its interior became something no one had ever seen in Thailand.
Stunningly decorated in neon and with retro wall signs, license plates and even a surfboard, the new V8 Diner echoed the vintage theme of 1950’s America like nowhere else. We even brought in a genuine 1950s-era jukebox and 1960s Coca-Cola machine.
Then, in May 2018, a Thai music star dropped by, put photos of the V8 on his Facebook page and the V8 exploded across Bangkok. Overnight, the V8 Diner became the PLACE TO SEE and the place to BE SEEN!
The V8’s Facebook page went from a few thousand visits a day to 1 million overnight. Suddenly the tables were packed with people wanting to Instagram themselves in front of the neon, the jukebox and the Coke machine.
