Mansion 7

Mansion 7 is Bangkok's latest niche concept retail & lifestyle complex on Ratchadaphisek Road. It is a "Boutique Thriller Mall" - a combination of "Boutique Mall" and a "Haunted Thrill Park" - that aims to attract young urbanites to a new leisure & shopping experience. The Mansion 7 is scheduled to open on October 31, Halloween Day - in line with its theme of eerie darkness and a haunted house - feeding on Thais' fascination with ghosts.

The complex has 41 tenant shops, divided into three major zones: fashion, restaurants and playground, including several bars, ice-cream outlets and even a 'Beer Mansion'. The main entertainment attraction though is a three-storey haunted ghost house named "Dark Mansion" occupying about 900 sq.m. area - and, like those at the amusement parks, there is entrance fees.

Mansion 7 is located at Ratchada 14 near Huai Khwang MRT station and it is open from noon to midnight (12:00 - 24:00). For more details, visit their haunting website: www.themansion7.com
