Bangkok Nightlife Guide - Top 10 Bars, Rooftop Lounges and Restaurants with a View

▶ Bangkok Sky Bars and Rooftop Lounges

▶ LE FENIX HOTEL | Sukhumvit - The rooftop bar ‘The Nest’ is an airy alfresco hangout in downtown Sukhumvit. Its slouch-friendly furnishings, soft beats and sultry evening breezes will ease you ever-so gently into the night, leaving you all set for a crazy night-on-the-tiles at one of the clubs below. Bed down with your lovebird in a padded hammock or one of the ‘nest’ shaped chairs. Order a tangy cocktail, lean back and take in the blinking cityscape. Or get convivial with the clientele - suits and Thai/farang clubbers mostly - while you puff on a Cuban cigar. Daily Opening Hours: 18:00 - 02:00 Location: Le Fenix Hotel Bangkok Tel: +66 (0) 2 305 4000 Dress Code: Smart Casual

▶ LONG TABLE | Sukhumvit - Residing on the 25th floor of Column Tower, Long Table is a hidden jewel in Bangkok’s crown. Standing tall over the city, the panoramic view is exasperated by the nostalgic house beats that roll from the glass facade into the night sky. The same group who brought the city Bed Supperclub returned with an even more modern and gimmicky gesture – sharing a meal at one table. Believed to be the longest table in the world, it seats around 70 people. The bar seeks to redefine the dining and drinking experience in Bangkok. Comprising dimly light hallways, intricate lighting and the clever trickery of mirrors to create the illusion of more space, the décor is a real treat. With such a cutting edge concept you get the feeling that if Long Table were in New York the entry queues would be somewhere over in Sathorn. For those looking for a unique experience, a chic cocktail or chilled glass of wine, Bangkok’s newest rooftop bar will not fail to impress. Daily Opening Hours: 11:00 - 02:00 Location: Column Tower - 48 Sukhumvit Soi16, Sukhumvit Tel: +66 (0) 2 302 2557 Dress Code: Smart Casual

▶ VERIGO MOON BAR | Sathorn - Dine al fresco at the stylish and sophisticated roof top open-air grill and bar - the first of its kind in Asia. Each evening, you can delight in a succulent seafood grill and premium steaks prepared by our chefs while you enjoy the breathtaking and panoramic views of the city. Vertigo is open from 18:00 - 23:00 The Moon Bar, located on the 61st floor offers a stunning venue for any occasion. Premium drinks are served in luxurious comfort in a sensual, friendly and romantic ambience. Contemplate the heavens or gaze at the stars while you sip your favorite beverage. Daily Opening Hours: Moon Bar: 17:00 - 01:00 Location: Banyan Tree Hotel, 21/100 South Sathon Road Tel.: +66 (0) 2 679 1200 Dress Code: Smart Casual

▶ SIROCCO & SKY BAR | Riverside - Boutique hotel Lebua, in the massive State Tower, has two ultra-elevated al-fresco restaurants and another pair of sky high bars on top of the city. Sirocco serves Mediterranean cuisine on the 63rd floor while nearby Sky Bar -- standing room only -- is great for after-dinner drinks. On the 64th floor is Distil, which is more laid back than Sky Bar and has an outdoor area with seats. Down on the 52nd floor, Breeze is a semi open-air restaurant serving Asian-style seafood. Though not as high as Sirocco, some prefer the views from this side of the building. If one Bangkok restaurant has managed to make a name for itself on the global stage, it's Sirocco. The food on this 63rd-floor restaurant atop Lebua hotel in the State Tower is often overshadowed by the venue's famous views. Those views also add to the price tag, making Sirocco one of Bangkok's most expensive dining experiences. It's worth it. The Mediterranean cuisine is fresh and authentic. Some of our expert panel's favorite dishes include Mediterranean octopus a la plancha with potato confit, smoked paprika and piquillo pepper essence; oven-roasted Chilean sea bass with vine-ripe tomato "Pain Perdu,” saffron potatoes and Manila clam velouté; and Wagyu beef tenderloin persillade "La Ratte" with potato puree, glazed seasonal vegetables and oxtail jus. The restaurant has been featured in pretty much every travel magazine and has won numerous readers choice awards. Daily Opening Hours: 18:00 - 01:00 (last order 23:30) Location: Lebua Hotel State Tower, 1055 Silom Road Tel.: +66 (0) 2 624 9999 Dress Code: Smart Casual

▶ THE NEST | Sukhumvit - The antidote to Sukhumvit Soi 11's throbbing techno music, cover charges and too many "working" women ruining your relaxing after dinner cocktails might just be found at The Nest, a small rooftop bar atop the Fenix Hotel. Every seat in the house is comfortable, the music isn’t too loud and no one has an attitude. It’s a place for scoping out a good spot and staying a while as there's a solid food menu too. Once a month, The Nest hosts a MODE party that features a variety of DJs who spin everything from hip hop to house. Daily Opening Hours: 17:00 - 02:00 Location: 33/33 Sukhumvit Soi 11 Tel.: +66 (0) 2 654 6935 Dress Code: Casual
 
▶ RED SKY | Siam - This atmospheric bar perched atop Centara Grand’s rooftop feels rather out of this world, thanks to its clever lighting design and spaceship-themed décor. With the stars above your head and the bustle of downtown Bangkok a distant below, Red Sky sets the scene for a romantic evening. Cosy up on the sofa and order a glass of wine from a selection of 200 labels or try an imaginative concoction from the martini bar. Food is more like culinary art – the menu is not extensive but one of the most creative in Bangkok’s gourmet dining scene. Live jazz entertainment and unrivalled 360-view from the 55th floor top off the experience. Daily Opening Hours: 17:00 - 01:00 Location: Centara Grand Hotel, Rama 1 Road Tel.: +66 (0) 2 100 1234
 
▶ BLUE SKY | Chatuchak - Finally a rooftop bar that stands out from the crowd – in terms of the location and view. Set on the 24th floor of the Sofitel Centara Grand Hotel, Blue Sky offers a lofty vantage over Chatuchak, Lad Phrao and the northern artery Vibhavadi-Rangsit Road. From here, you can see the entire downtown Bangkok in one frame. Walk through the ‘celestial’ tunnel, glittering with tiny stars, and emerge to the swanky rooftop space and spectacular backdrop beyond. The cocktail list highlights both the classics and signature creations, such as Blue Sky and Kiwi Caiphirinha. There’s also a restaurant serving French-inspired contemporary cuisine. Daily Opening Hours: 18:00 - 02:00
