Park Society Rooftop at So Sofitel 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 HI-SO Rooftop Bar at So Sofitel 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 SO Sofitel Bangkok 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.

HI-SO Rooftop Bar is a bar, but you can order a small selection of tapas, starting at 1,100 baht. Sundowner at the Park promotion from Mon – Thu, 5:30pm – 7pm offers Buy 1 Get 1 free for selected cocktails, 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 Rooftop Bar located above the HI-SO Rooftop Bar is even nicer so don't hesitate to climb the stairs that state "Hi-So Only" since everyone is now welcome up there.
