Bangkok is a hub for many wild nights, but a few drinks could make you forget what you did the night before.

Cabbages & Condoms is a restaurant in Asok that wants to remind people to always have protection to avoid morning-after surprises.


Better safe than sorry

The “condom king” and founder, Mr. Mechai Viravaidya, used to be a politician who promoted the use of contraceptives to decrease unplanned pregnancy and stop STD spread. Today, he continues to spread awareness through condom-related business ventures, and this restaurant was one of them.
