Our neighborhood has a cool new café called The Barn.
This café was designed by some local architecture students as their final graduation project.
It has everything you may want from a hip, trendy café: unfinished wood floors, antique rocking horses, tables made of spools, naked globe lights, cooler-than-you art on the windows.
They were even playing Arcade Fire on the sound system (but not the new Arcade Fire, if you know what I mean).
And that sound system? Disguised inside an antique radio.
There was the usual array of espresso drinks and sweets available. Hugo enjoyed the smoothies.
It’s a great place to come and sit and work alone on your Apple brand electronic device.
Here’s where to find The Barn if you are ever wandering around Chiang Mai in search of espresso and lo-fi music.
