Cru Rooftop Bar Bangkok is the highest and certainly one of the fanciest rooftop bars in Bangkok. It serves some exclusive labels of G.H. Mumm Champagne, a snack menu of world delicacies and offers its guests genuine 360 degree views of the city.
Located above Centara Grand at CentralWorld, Cru Bangkok takes pride of place on the 59th (and quite literally on the rooftop) of the hotel. It has a more intimate and sophisticated feel than Red Sky and Uno Mas below, with its own private lift and a chic, white-on-white design. There’s a large circular bar in the centre and a huge illuminated arch that changes colours throughout the night and gives photos some nice contrasts. Cru, from the French word meaning ‘wine of exceptional quality’, is a fitting name for this new addition to Centara Grand’s growing rooftop drinking and dining zone.
For the real wine connoisseurs, the pick of some of the best champagnes available in Bangkok exclusively at Cru Rooftop Bar are G.H. Mumm No.1 Pink Champagne (800 baht per glass), with many other rare labels, such as a 2009 Bollinger 007 Spectre Limited edition, 1998 Taittinger Comtes de Champagne Brut Blancs de Blanc, and Bollinger Brut Rosé. Champagne by the bottle starts from 5,000 baht, which is actually a very competitive price in Thailand.
Champagne cocktails are the order of the day here, with a Bangkok Belinni – a classic mix of Champagne and peach for 488 baht – coming with pulped peach and cubes of fresh fruit to snack on. For something more Instagram-worthy, consider the Swallow’s Nest, a vodka and Cointreau mix that comes served in its own cage, with pomegranate pearls and a sprig of rosemary.
Obviously, grabbing some pictures around sunset is a very popular activity and the great thing about Cru Rooftop Bar Bangkok is the 360 degree view of central Bangkok, which is seriously impressive, even without the riverside views offered by several of our other favourite Bangkok rooftops. Open from 17:00, we would advise getting to Cru Rooftop Bar around 18:00 so you get to enjoy the sunset and beautiful changing colours of the sky, with Bangkok’s sprawl stretching to the horizon in every direction.
To accompany your bubbles, there’s an interesting snack menu of world delicacies, including a cheese board consisting of four types of cheese, figs, grapes and walnuts. You can also enjoy Caspian Sea Caviar, foie gras, freshly chucked oysters and deep fried morsels of lobster, corn and crab.
If you’re looking to impress someone, you can’t really get more exclusive than a rooftop champagne bar, and the prices at Cru Champagne Bar, while expensive, are no more than what you’ll pay at many other Bangkok rooftop bars.
