Octave Rooftop Bar at Bangkok Marriott Hotel Sukhumvit

Sukhumvit Sky Bar with 360 views

Sukhumvit Road in Bangkok waited a long time for its very own rooftop bar, and then finally one came along and showed the rest of them how it should really be done. Octave Rooftop and Lounge is more than a place for watching the sunset or having a romantic meal. No rooftop bar in the city has a 360 degree view of Bangkok that matches this, and the top floor of this three level venue is the highest spot in the city for a party. Starting on the 45th floor of the Marriot Hotel Sukhumvit, a three minute walk from Thong Lor Skytrain Station, Octave Rooftop Bar and Lounge opens at 17:00. Although the location is handy, it is slightly off the main tourist trail meaning that it is usually easy to grab a seat at one of Octave’s tables with a view.

Unlike many rooftop bars in Bangkok, which often have standing room only, Octave has made sure that there is an impressive selection of seating with uninterrupted views of the city. In fact, on every floor there is nothing but a reinforced sheet of glass between you and the vista. The overall effect is pretty impressive. The first level has a definite lounge feel to it, laidback and ideal for dinner and groups. There is a mix of nature and industry in the decor, with some antique Thai pottery on the shelf behind the bar, but somehow it all works well together: plant covered walls, chunky wooden tables, modern bucket chairs and neon blue lighting. If you never get beyond this floor, you could still have a great night out; a DJ plays chillout tunes and the staff are attentive and friendly.

The food and drinks menu are each a page long, and it was nice to find Octave Rooftop wasn’t bombarding us with so many choices we couldn’t pick. The cocktail selection was creative with prices starting at 320 baht and included a Bangkok 57, a shot of saffron-infused vodka topped up with champagne and the pink tinged Bloom over the Roof, a mojito style blend with a hint of red fruit and the sweetness of elderflower cordial. Local beers start at 170 baht and there is a selection of wine by the glass. Mocktails start at 220 baht and we enjoyed the sweet but refreshing mango and ginger Sunset. The food at Octave Rooftop Bar was mostly quick bites and light meals such as chicken wings with a side of sweet chilli dipping sauce, peppered calamari and foie gras terrine on toast.

Head upstairs and you will find a balcony bar, which lacks both the glamour of the floor below it and the party vibe of the floor above, but on a crowded night it is the perfect spot for a bit of contemplation and admiring the view. This is a different view from many other Bangkok rooftops and is skyscraper heavy, stretching all the way to the cranes that line the dock area of the Chao Praya River and straight along Sukhumvit, with the colourful lights of Baiyoke Tower twinkling in the distance. Up another floor and you will find the pièce de resistance: a 360 degree rooftop with a circular bar, where staff mix the cocktails Tom Cruise style and the eclectic music ranges from Oasis/Green Day mash ups to current chart toppers.

Octave Rooftop Bar and Lounge may be the new kid on the block, but by offering a different atmosphere and a view unlike any other, you can guarantee it will soon be top of many people’s to-do lists when they visit Bangkok.
