Opened December 2016, VR1 is a virtual reality and board game cafe/bar situated conveniently on Thong Lo. There are several rooms which you can book out with friends to immerse yourself in virtual reality, or you can simply sit and play board games whilst enjoying some drinks and food.
There are several rooms available with cosy sofas to watch your friend’s reactions as they fight zombies, fly in space or swim under water. However, all rooms have glass walls so be prepared that others in the cafe can watch and laugh at you too!
The staff are extremely helpful and they had an extensive selection of games to choose from. In rooms where there are two head sets you can even play against your friends.
Should you not be interested in fighting zombies, there are also more traditional board games available for your entertainment.
Food is limited to snacks such as chicken wings, spring rolls, fries, calamari and edamame all priced between 80-150 baht. Drinks are well priced and a decent selection of beers, ciders and spirits is available.
A highly recommended alternative games cafe experience on Thong Lo.
