Lucas – Darling Wine Bar

We sadly report that Lucas Villiger, the original owner and driving force behind Darling Wine Bar has passed away in his native Switzerland after a period of illness. In it’s hey day Lucas and his Thai partner Daeng, made Darling quite the place to be. But, it was never the same after Daeng’s untimely passing in 2005 and the bar has seen several changes of ownership since then.

Lucas was a well known and popular participant of the Chiang Mai social scene who always had an opinion to express. A glance through back issues of the Chiang Mai Mail often shows pictures of Lucas at various events. The picture below from Chaing Mai mail is from a 2003 Christmas Party at Darling with Daeng in full Christmas costume.

Lucas is on the right with Daeng taking center stage as usual!
