TOP 5 Best Rooftop Bars in Bangkok


Fancy a delicious cocktail up the city for an unforgettable night out?

All around Bangkok, you’ll easily find dozens of skyscrapers, where you can experiment such an exceptional moment. We definitely recommend you trying it at least once during your stay! You’ll never regret it. These rooftop bars may make you dizzy, but you’ll also get this delicious feeling to conquer the world for a moment!

 

The best Rooftop Bars

You are spoilt for choice in Bangkok, this is why you need some clues to find the perfect one. Depending on your budget and wishes, we made a selection of our very favorite rooftops to help you making the right choice between all of them.

The higher it is, the higher the price is going to be for a cocktail at the top of the world… but be prepared for an unforgettable view.

Our special tip: Sunset is the best moment to come in, to enjoy a fantastic view.

Don’t forget: Most of the time, a dress code is to be respected, generally a casual chic outfit. Avoid sandals, sneakers, and beachwear, or you might not be admitted within the bar.

 

SKYBAR & SIROCCO

Skybar is undoubtedly the most famous rooftop in Bangkok with its restaurant Sirocco, thanks to the film Hangover 2. One of the key scene was shot there, and a cocktail was even called after it (The Hangovertiny). Located on the 63rd floor of the Lubua Tower, this rooftop offers you a panoramic view over Bangkok and the Chao Phraya river.

Consequently, cocktails are especially expensive (590 baht as a minimum), but the service is exceptional.

Don’t even think wearing a short or flip flops if you expect going upstairs, a decent outfit is required.

Floor: 63

What time: From 6pm to 1am

VERTIGO

Skybar’s serious competitor is located at the top of Banyan Tree Hotel, in Silom. This long and superp rooftop offers a breathtaking panoramic view of the city, with a high-end menu (3000 baht per person for a dinner). We warmly recommend you the Vertigo Sunset, our favorite cocktail!

Exclusively outdoors, don’t forget to watch whether forecast before planning to go.

Avoid a too casual outfit for sure.
