Bangkok has always been one of the most exciting cities in southeast Asia. It is a place where the pace of life seems to only accelerate as the sun goes down. It’s in the early hours of the evening that both locals, visitors and expats begin to explore the many opportunities for entertainment and dining in this fast-paced city.
The past few years have seen an enormous growth in the number of rooftop bars that are springing up in Bangkok and these venues are some of the most exciting evening experiences available whether the patron is looking for fine dining, a relaxing atmosphere, the opportunity to mingle with people from all over the world – including Thai locals or merely the opportunity to see the sunset over of the most beautiful skylines in the world.
As darkness falls and the lights come on expect to these bars fill up quickly – especially during the weekends.
So which rooftop bars should the visitor make sure to put on their evening bucket list while in Bangkok?
Nice tip from The Roof Top Guide – there is the CRU Champagne Bar with some of the best Mumm Champagne-based cocktails in the city and one of the most impressive views over Bangkok from the 59th floor of the Centara Grand at CentralWorld.
Secondly (although by no means inferior) is
Alfresco 64 which can be found at the top of ‘The Dome’. Fabulous views of the city from the 64th floor. Fine dining is at your fingertips and the Alfresco 64 partnership with Chivas means this is the perfect place to enjoy a Scotch Whisky as the sun sets.
Other rooftop bars such as the Vertigo and Moon Bar, the Sirocco & Sky Bar (great Mediterranean food) and Vanilla Sky are all worth visiting when you want to enjoy that perfect view and that perfect start to a fun-filled evening in Bangkok.
