Park Society Rooftop at Sofitel So Bangkok

The Latest Rooftop Bar in Bangkok

Rooftop bars seem to be the latest craze in Bangkok, so much so that I wonder just how many cities in the world have more rooftop bars than here? And open-air bars are popular for a reason! The weather during half the year is safe, you never have to worry about rain, and during the 'rainy season' you can still enjoy many happy hours under the open skies. Actually, the cloudy skies of the wet season are a lot nicer than during high season, when all you get on your photo is a plain blue sky. Boring...

So here we have Park Society at Sofitel So Bangkok, another nice promising rooftop bar. Great, but it is getting increasingly difficult to impress Bangkok citizens! Let's face it, except maybe for the 360 bar at the Hilton Millennium by the Chao Phraya River, all other rooftops bars in Bangkok just offer... a bird's eye view on a sea of roofs. And since Sofitel is located in Sathorn, a large avenue flanked by tall glass buildings on each side, expectations were rather low.

The elevator of this beautiful and very sophisticated hotel took us to a dimmed lobby on the 29th floor and a friendly staff member dressed in an unconventionial oriental outfit led us to the terrace. Once there, we had a surprise. and a good one - not at all what we were expecting! Just below the hotel is the green immensity of Lumpini Park and beyond  the striking glass-and-metal skyline of Siam and Silom; tall towers with their ever-changing colours and lights. It took us a while to apprehend how magnificent the city can be at sunset... I haven't been to New York's Central Park, but it's a bit how I imagine the view would be there from a nearby building.

Park Society is a bar, but you can order a small selection of tapas, starting at 1,100 baht. No happy hours here, but the first glass of wine starts at 290 baht, which is a lot cheaper than Vertigo at Banyan Tree or the Sky Bar at Lebua. Music is good, not intrusive, and it is just so fascinating to watch the city lights appearing as the  natural light dims. The view from the Hi-So terrace located above the Park Society is even nicer so don't hesitate to climb the stairs that state "Hi-So Only" since everyone is now welcome up there.

SO Sofitel Bangkok

There are 238 chic rooms in four different styles that spill out into the corridor, making each floor feel like a different hotel.The lowest floors are the metal zone, with bedrooms so white and futuristic, the bright space contrasting with Bangkoks jumble of colour and noise.For a more Zen-like experience, continue upwards to the warm, wood-inspired rooms; a twist on traditional Thai accommodation that has a Japanese feel right down to the Bonsai tree.Earth rooms are painted Klein blue with paintings inspired by Thai mythology.Fighting fish feature on the top floors in the rooms themed around water with marble walls recreating the colours of the sea.
