Emporium is a luxury shopping mall in Khlong Toei district, Bangkok, Thailand. It opened in 1997. It is owned and operated by The Mall Group and another mall, Siam Paragon.

It is on Sukhumvit Road at Sukhumvit Soi 24 beside Queen's Park. It is connected directly to the Phrom Phong Station on the Sukhumvit Line of the BTS Skytrain by a footbridge. It is owned by the same company as Siam Paragon and its direct competitor is Central Group.

Along with the Emporium department store, the mall contains a cinema multiplex and book, record, fashion and trinket shops, a grocery store, a food court, and restaurants.

Emporium is a popular hub for entertainment, food, and education for local residents and visitors. Inside are "Emprivé Cineclub by SF Corporation", an exhibition hall and children's play centres.

Design[edit]

Emporium was designed by J+H Boiffils.[1] Emporium was their first shopping mall design project in Thailand. They later designed Siam Paragon, another Bangkok shopping mall, for the same developer. Emporium was Bangkok's first luxury lifestyle mall offering venues for upscale shopping, dining, entertainment, and supermarket in one complex. With the launch of the Bangkok Sky Train system several years later, Emporium was the first mall to allow direct access from the Skytrain station.

EM District expansion[edit]

On 7 May, The Mall Group announced six new projects, including the re-announcing of the Emporium Quartier and the Emporium Sphere, and called them "The EM District". The EM District is a group of three Emporium's shopping malls including the current shopping mall and the two new projects:[2]

  • Emporium - The current shopping mall. On 8 May onward, The Emporium became a part of The EM District and was restyled as Emporium.
  • EmQuartier - The second branch of The EM District shopping mall group on the opposite site of current shopping mall. The project was launched in May 2015.
  • Emsphere - The third branch of The District EM shopping mall group next to Benchasiri Park. The project is expected to start construction in 2015, with completion estimated for early-2017.
