This community space has been designed with the aim to let people make memories here, which explains why it’s so photogenic. It’s got tonnes of IG-friendly spots for us to get snapping. 

Eateries to explore – The Alley, Tropi Hoola, and more

Aside from its retro decor and photo-ops everywhere, there are lots of cafes, restaurants, and stores for you to spend the entire day exploring.

Get started at Tropi Hoola, a tropical-themed cafe that sells unique desserts like cheesecake crepes and cheese brulee donuts. It is beautifully decorated and will make you feel like you’re away on a beach holiday!

Bubble tea fans have something to celebrate too. The Alley is a famous BBT brand from Taiwan known for its delicious brown sugar milk tea drinks, and it’s found its newest home at Gump’s Ari. 

What you shouldn’t miss is their Royal No.9 Milk Tea with Deerioca (฿110) – a milk tea latte made from black fruit tea, so there is an additional fruity note to this tea that’s different from other boba shops. Plus, the signature brown sugar pearls – aka Deerioca – also helps add sweetness to the tea.

If coffee is more your style, then Coffee Is The New Black might interest you. It breaks away from the typical pastel-theme going on and has a sleek dark aesthetic. Here’s where you can chill out with some friends over coffee and cafe food – there are also alcoholic drinks to sip on. 

If you’re heading here towards the later half of the day and are looking for something more filling, there are lots of restaurants with dinner options too. These include Crazy Noodles, dumpling store Lim Dim Sum, and Japanese grill buffet restaurant Kobe King which offers premium Thai Wagyu beef at a promotional price of ฿599 (from ฿899).
