Vanilla Sky Rooftop Bar Bangkok offers the perfect spot for citywide views from Sukhumvit’s Phrom Phong area. Located on the 36th floor of Compass Skyview Hotel, the location of Vanilla Sky Bangkok is one of its real selling points, just a couple of doors down Sukhumvit Soi 24 from Emporium Shopping Mall and a few minutes’ walk from Phrom Phong BTS Station. The view is a genuine 360 degree vista, with the bustle of Sukhumvit Road and Benjasiri Park on one side and the Riverside and Sathorn on the other.
Vanilla Sky Bangkok has a choice of classic cocktails, several interesting gin and tonic concoctions and a couple of beers by the bottle. Cocktails cost between 320 baht and 400 baht. The layout is inviting, with high tables along the edge of the rooftop, and a group of couches in the centre, which are great for relaxing with your group. Don’t come to Vanilla Sky hungry though, because there’s no food menu at the time of writing and snacks are limited to nuts, popcorn and other nibbles. From the lift on the 34th floor, you have to walk through a club section, which promises funky club nights in the future.
