Washington Square was an entertainment area in Bangkok, Thailand, located for many years at Sukhumvit Soi 22, near the Phrom Phong skytrain station. Popular mainly with Bangkok expatriates and Middle East oil field workers, it contained bars, restaurants, massage parlors and a katoey theatre. Bourbon Street was well known for serving Cajun and Creole food and was written up by the Bangkok Post in 2005.
The area features in Christopher G. Moore's series of crime novels about private eye Vincent Calvino, and the Texas Lone Staar bar was often mentioned in the mystery novels of Dean Barrett, who once rented an apartment in the Square.
Washington Square has now been completely demolished, pending the construction of a shopping mall and several high rise buildings. The restaurants and a few of the bars have relocated elsewhere on Sukhumit Road, but most have simply closed.
