Sky Bar Rooftop at Lebua

The best river views in Bangkok

Made even more famous by hosting the Hangover II boys during filming in Bangkok, Sky Bar rooftop at Lebua State Tower offers one of the best views in the city. 63 floors up and overlooking the river, it has become a must-do for a sundowner cocktail. Around ten minutes’ walk from Saphan Taksin BTS it is very easy to find, just look up and walk towards the tall cream building with the gold dome on the roof. It may not be the most relaxed experience as people will flock here on a clear day and it gets crowded, but the vista is one you won’t forget in a hurry.

If you arrive before 18:00 (when Sky Bar opens) you can still have a drink and enjoy the view from Distil. This comfortable oyster and whisky bar has an outdoor terrace with a comfortable cushioned sofa area. The view isn’t as good as the main restaurant and bar but it’s slightly more relaxed as no-one is pushing and shoving to take pictures. Because of the popularity of Sky Bar it can sometimes feel like you are at a cattle market. The staff usher you down the steps at an impressive speed, and won't let you take pictures from the top of the stairs. Once you are in the bar area there are no seats and if you are only having a drink it can feel a bit claustrophobic.

If you are a fan of the movie try a Hangovertini. The mixologist at Lebua created it especially to celebrate the film, and although many people did not like how Bangkok and its citizens were represented on screen, the blend of green tea liquor, apple juice, Martini Rosso and rosemary honey, goes down much better here than the movie ever did. There are plenty of other original cocktail choices, as well as a good range of beers and wines. If you are coming for a special occasion it is worth considering dinner at Sirocco, where you can enjoy a romantic dinner at the world’s highest rooftop restaurant.

Although the crowds at Sky Bar and the lack of seating don’t make for a relaxing drink, the unusual cocktails and arguably the best views in Bangkok make a visit here well worth the trip.
