Bangkok Rooftop Bars

Bangkok Nightlife

The sheer size and magnitude of this enormous city is best experienced at one of Bangkok's trendy rooftop venues, from where you can enjoy a bird's eye view of this sprawling metropolis while sipping on a refreshing cocktail. The best time to go is late afternoon - just in time to witness the sun setting behind the magnificent Chao Praya River.

Park Society at Sofitel So on Sathorn Road Park Society Sofitel Rooftop

D'Sens Bar & Restaurant

Dusit Thani Bangkok - Silom

Overlooking Lumpini Park from the top (22nd) floor of Dusit Thani Bangkok, a prime and established Bangkok hotel, this elegant French-themed restaurant and bar comes highly recommended with its three Michelin stars in the dining category. It's possible to pop in just for a drink too, but make the most of your evening with the fine cousine of Jacques and Laurent Pourcel from Le Jardin fame. Views are panaromic, and this would be the right place to impress a date.

Opening Hours: 11:30 - 14:30, 18:30 - 22:00
Location: Dusit Thani Bangkok
Tel: +66 (0)2 236 9999
Dress Code: Elegant


Khao San Road

Gazebo is a rooftop bar-cum-club where balmy winds and nocturnal city views mix into a heady cocktail. It's all a little like the entrance to a half-built pleasure palace. Resist the temptation to turn back; views entertain while you sip cocktails in what feels like an upscale Moroccan loft. The plump cushions, the soft lamps, the shisha pipes (and the lack of air-conditioning…) are all heavily redolent of Cairo. Includes ‘The Zed Bar’ – a state-of-the-art DJ room where you can belly dance into the small hours. 

A sultry evening breeze heightens the Arabian Night's feel, while the live reggae band adds to the eclecticism. Then, once the cocktails have kicked in and your eyes glazed over, head next door to meet Gazebo's raucous alter ego: a small, dark club room thick with 3am nocturnes and loud dance beats. Entry is 300 baht after midnight.

Opening Hours: 18:00 - late
Location: Khao San
Tel: +66 (0)2 629 0705
Dress Code: Smart Casual
How to get there: If you are at the police station on Jakrapong Road in front of Khao San, keep walking toward Ratchadamnoen Road, Gazebo is on your left. Gazebo Khao San is highly rated as one of the Great Bars of the World in Singha-Lonely Planet 2009.

The Long Table

Column Tower - Sukhumvit

Residing on the 25th floor of Column Tower, Long Table is a hidden jewel in Bangkok’s crown. Standing tall over the city, the panoramic view is exasperated by the nostalgic house beats that roll from the glass facade into the night sky. The same group who brought the city Bed Supperclub returned with an even more modern and gimmicky gesture – sharing a meal at one table. Believed to be the longest table in the world, it seats around 70 people. The bar seeks to redefine the dining and drinking experience in Bangkok.

Comprising dimly light hallways, intricate lighting and the clever trickery of mirrors to create the illusion of more space, the décor is a real treat. With such a cutting edge concept you get the feeling that if Long Table were in New York the entry queues would be somewhere over in Sathorn. For those looking for a unique experience, a chic cocktail or chilled glass of wine, Bangkok’s newest rooftop bar will not fail to impress.

Opening Hours: 11:00 - 02:00
Location: Column Tower - 48 Sukhumvit Soi16, Sukhumvit
Tel: +66 (0)2 302 2557
Dress Code: Smart Casual (no beach wear or flip-flops allowed)



Le Fenix Hotel - Sukhumvit

Le Fenix Hotel’s rooftop bar ‘The Nest’ is an airy alfresco hangout in downtown Sukhumvit. Its slouch-friendly furnishings, soft beats and sultry evening breezes will ease you ever-so gently into the night, leaving you all set for a crazy night-on-the-tiles at one of the clubs below.

Bed down with your lovebird in a padded hammock or one of the ‘nest’ shaped chairs. Order a tangy cocktail, lean back and take in the blinking cityscape. Or get convivial with the clientele - suits and Thai/farang clubbers mostly - while you puff on a Cuban cigar.

Opening Hours: 18:00- 02:00
Location: Le Fenix Hotel Bangkok
Tel: +66 (0)2 305 4000
Dress Code: Smart Casual

Sky Bar

LeBua at State Tower - Riverside

Enjoy sweeping views from the top of Bangkok's second tallest building, the landmark State Tower with its highly visible golden dome. Tucked away in a corner of the award-winning open air Sirocco restaurant on the 64th floor, Sky Bar's counter is magically illuminated and changes colour every few minutes.

A favourite hang-out for celebrities and wannabes, this is where you'd find some of the best live jazz in Bangkok. Also located at the Dome is Distil, another place where everyone likes to be seen. Part DJ bar, part smoking lounge and part restaurant, Distil serves fine single-malt Scotches like Macallan and Glenmoranghie, accompanied by a small carafe of genuine Scottish water.

The oyster bar features fresh, imported oysters, as well as Iranian caviar. If you feel like puffing on a fine Cuban cigar, choose one from the humidor and light up on Bangkok's highest smoking balcony, overlooking the Chao Praya River. Drinks and food might be pricey, but the experience is priceless. Reservations are required for Sirocco.

Opening Hours: 17:00 - 01:00
Location: Lebua at State Tower (Silon/Riverside)
Tel: +66 (0)2 624 9999
Dress Code: Smart Casual (no beach shorts or flip-flops allowed)

Three Sixty

Millennium Hilton Hotel - Riverside

The latest addition to Bangkok's skyline, The Millennium Hilton Hotel on the Chonburi side of the Chao Praya River is a proud salute to cutting-edge design. Just a short ferry ride across the river from the River City Pier, or a ride on the hotel's hospitality boat from Saphan Taksin Pier (walking distance from Saphan Taksin BTS station), takes you to this spanking new hotel.

Take the elevator up to the 31st floor, and proceed one flight of stairs up to Three Sixty, a sophisticated jazz lounge that does justice to its name with unrivalled 360 degree views. Since its opening in March 2006, Three Sixty has become a popular hang-out for Bangkok's jet-set and tourists who have fallen in love with the views. Drinks are moderately priced and (despite being an indoor venue) there are demarcated smoking zones.

Opening Hours: 7:00 until 01:00
Location: Millennium Hilton Bangkok
Tel: +66 (0)2 442 2000
Dress Code: Smart Casual


Banyan Tree - Sathorn

This open air bar-cum-restaurant is 61 floors above the bustling streets of Bangkok; stylish, sophisticated, romantic and reaching for the clouds. Indulge in some of the world's finest champagne, exotic cocktails, wine-by-the-glass or non-alcholic beverages in the bar area, or go all the way for a memorable dinner of barbecued seafood.

The magical atmosphere makes for a memorable evening, weather permitting. A telescope is available for star-gazing, and on most nights there is live jazz too. Despite the heavy price tags, it's money worth spending. Due to its popularity, reservations are required for the restaurant. Read More...
