Above Eleven Rooftop Bar
Above Eleven on Sukhumvit 11 is more than just a rooftop: it’s a great place for a party with great music, great cocktails, friendly staff, and excellent food. This rooftop has become so popular it is literally impossible to get a table without a reservation, even a table for two, so plan in advance. Located on the 33rd and 34th floor of the Fraser suite, Above Eleven is high but doesn’t offer great views of the riverside as on Sky Bar or the long avenues of Bangkok as you can see at the nearby Octave. You are still above most of the buildings around, and the great atmosphere easily makes up for the missing panorama.
The food is particularly good with Japanese-Peruvian influences, starting at 250 baht. The talented mixologist will prepare some delicious cocktails also with a Peruvian twist to go with but beware! Below their gentle taste hides a lot of alcohol, and you might end up in full-scale party mode without knowing it. (First prices start at 180 for a draught beer)
It is always worth mentioning, especially after a few of those treacherous cocktails mentioned above, are the panoramic gentlemen toilets: the men’s urinal is in front of a floor to ceiling glass from where you can enjoy a superb Bangkok view while doing your number one. Of course, potential people living in nearby towers can only see your upper body, but they know what you are doing while standing in front of that bright window, looking back at them with a satisfied smile on your face. Of course, this is not why you came, but it adds a fun touch to it.
Above Eleven is definitely a great place to come with friends at the end of the day. It combines all the elements you need to enjoy until late. Just remember that the dress code is strict and won’t allow open shoes and sleeveless shirt so keep that in mind when you book in advance, which is almost a requirement.
