CENTRAL: THE ORIGINAL STORE is at the heart of Charoen Krung 2020; a contemporary mix of old-and-new neighbours. In the 1950s, this area was a hub for foreign goods and vibrant with hotels and bars — The Oriental Hotel, the British Dispensary, the Bamboo Bar, Chez Eve jazz club, Abbas F. & Co. stationery, Prom Photo Studio, amongst others. Seventy years later, in the 2020s, our neighbours are fresh — from the new Creative Economy Agency, to recent openings of coffee shops, restaurants, art spaces and galleries. This guide welcomes you to a changing neighbourhood, and just like in the 1950s, CENTRAL: THE ORIGINAL STORE stands as a testament of friendship in the community.
