    Luxury Rooftop Bars & Restaurants in Siam

    Combining three remarkable dining and entertainment establishments within the ‘factory chic’ confines of polished concrete and 360 degree views, Heaven Bangkok brings an air of urban sophistication to the city. Situated on the 17th to 20th floors on top of Zen Department Store – part of the colossal Central World Shopping Mall – in the Siam district of Bangkok, guests can expect creative cocktails, conceptual dining, and classic city views. Specifically, the complex consists of Zense Gourmet Deck and Lounge, Shintori Japanese Art Cuisine and Horizons Gastronomy and Mixology, all grouped under the umbrella name of Heaven Bangkok. We love the location of Heaven Bangkok because it is the only rooftop bar and restaurant in the middle of the shopping district of Bangkok and formerly the idea of a sundowner cocktail after shopping meant a cross town dash to the riverside, whereas now it is simply an elevator ride away. Heaven Bangkok is open from 17:30 to 01:00 every day of the week and can be accessed through elevators in Zen Department Store.

  • Zense offers a unique dining experience with six separate kitchens offering a culinary journey around the world – with the stunning cityscape as a backdrop. It is a surprisingly large space split into a wine bar, open plan restaurant and a spacious deck with modern seating and a cocktail bar featuring some surprising twists on classic drinks: caipirinhas and mojitos can be had with the classic lime or several other tropical fruits including longan or lychee.

    The menu is a compendium of all the different kitchens and diners are free to mix and match to their heart’s content. The food here is not fine dining, more like good food done Read More...

    Shintori Japanese Art Cuisine feels like a plush Manhattan loft, with bold colours and minimalist decor. However it is an expertly designed space with subtle Japanese inspired touches such as a water pond and symmetrical fixtures. The restaurant is perhaps the most sophisticated of all the establishments within Heaven: a raised central sushi bar dominates one side of the restaurant like an alter and on the other side there is a glass fronted kitchen filled with diligent chefs crafting and creating incredibly imaginative dishes. The duck spring rolls are a Chinese inspired dish that arrives at your table like a sculpture, complemented by cubes of rich ox tongue, fine cuts of ginger and crispy, fried soba noodle. For lovers of sashimi, the sashimi salad is a surprising dish because it is an assortment of seven types of premium fish tossed into a western style salad. Expect some fatty tuna belly (oroto), blood red yellow fin tuna, creamy prawns, octopus and also some semi-cooked sashimi for a taste that straddles the line between fish and meat. Originally started in Taiwan, Shintori opened a second branch in Shanghai and now this Bangkok offering is the third restaurant in the group. There are tables lining the centre of the expansive room but we suggest taking one of the tables lined up against the windows for a sense of the spectacular. The cocktails at Shintori Japanese Art Cuisine are also excellent and we highly recommend sampling some of their shochu options, most of which come with fruit to create a blend of flavours. For private parties, Shintori has the most dramatic 14 person dining room in Bangkok and it’s well worth enquiring if you’re looking to celebrate in style.

    Horizons @ Heaven

    Horizons at Heaven is an alfresco cocktail bar with some creative tapas dishes to enjoy while lazing back on the sleek daybeds and soaking up the 360 degree view. There is a DJ playing chill electronic music to start the night and moving onto house and techno as the night moves on. The superb tapas menu at Horizons is a fusion of Thai, Japanese and Western. It’s a strategy that could lack any semblance of continuity in the wrong hands, but at Horizons the dishes are all mini adventures in themselves, created with sizeable flair, and suit the environment perfectly. Our favourites include the Thai-inspired lamb with basil and chilli placed on a crispy tortilla chip, bite-sized wagyu steak on a potato roti base and pork belly with cabbage and horseradish for that sharp overtone. Gourmet ingredients produced with a casual style. The cocktail list is impressive and split into classics, molecular offerings and some of the most creative shots we’ve ever seen. Our advice is to choose your base spirit and then take the plunge with one of their Signature offerings. Horizons is the place to come for some pumping tunes and good time vibes – either for a sundowner cocktail or after dinner with the lights of Bangkok shining on deep into the night. Horizons has an excellent buy-one-get-one-free deal from 17:30 to 19:30 on selected cocktails, wine and beers.
