What is Bangkok Best Rooftop Bar?

Bangkok Best Rooftop Bars list keeps getting longer, and no other city in the world can pretend to have more rooftops and sky bars than we do here. At this time, we count more than 30 ‘real’ rooftop bars and restaurants and a good dozen alternate ones. By ‘real rooftop bar’, we mean built at the top of a building with an open sky above, not a terrace with a view.

Sky Bar Rooftop Bar at Lebua Bangkok


Why this craze for Bangkok rooftops bars?

  1. The fascination people have for high places and their fantastic views, and the photos they can post on Facebook,
  2. An excellent weather condition most of the year that allows running all year round, (probably why there are not as many rooftops in Kuala Lumpur, seems to rain a lot at sunset time)
  3. Rooftop bars can be great money makers for a space the hotel owns anyway! Few seats, a bar and a sound system and here you go, 350 baht for a Singha please (plus 7% tax and 10% service charge), and we all are happy to pay.

Wherever you are in Bangkok, there is always a rooftop near you! (We know this list is not complete, but we are growing it fast!)

2. Sky Bar at State Tower

62nd floor in Silom

Sky Bar at State Tower Bangkok

Sky Bar at Lebua Hotel on top of the State Tower is, without a doubt, the most famous rooftop bar in Bangkok. It was already renowned since its opening for its excellent location close to the river, its height, and mostly for that iconic golden dome. But after being featured in the Hangover II, it suddenly became a must on every traveller’s list. Now is it my favourite bar? Not quite. While the views are great, there are way too many people up there to enjoy it. Wherever you stand, you are in somebody’s way. Read more

4. Mahanakhon SkyWalk

78th floor in Silom

Mahanakhon Skywalk Rooftop Bangkok

Mahanakhon SkyWalk in Silom is, without a doubt the most thrilling experience you can get in Bangkok these days. It’s relatively expensive, but the views from this 360˙open space at the top of the tallest tower in Thailand somehow justify the price. Built on the 78th floor of the iconic Mahanakhon pixelated building, this long-awaited rooftop bar offers an impressive viewpoint on the entire Bangkok metropolis. Read more

6. ThreeSixty Millennium Hilton

32nd floor on Thonburi Riverside

Three Sixty Rooftop Bar at Millennium Hilton Bangkok

ThreeSixty Rooftop Bar at Millennium Hilton is a superb but rather under-appreciated rooftop bar. This might be because seen for far; the bar seems to be inside an indoor panoramic cupola. This indoor bar has fantastic views indeed as it appears to hang high above the busy Chao Phraya river, but it would not qualify as rooftop if that were all. Read more

7. Yao Rooftop Bar

32nd floor in Silom

Yao Rooftop Bar at Marriott Bangkok Surawongsee

Yao Rooftop Bar is a striking addition to the growing collection of rooftops in Bangkok. It may not be much talked about (so far) but with its soft Chinese theme and stunning views, it is a new gem in our list. Located at the 52nd and 53rd floors of the Marriott Bangkok Surawongsee in Silom, Yao offers rewarding views of the city skyline with a good 360˙ panoramic view.

8. CRU at Centara Grand

58th floor in Siam

CRU at Centara Grand

CRU Rooftop Bar is the latest and maybe the most exclusive rooftop in Bangkok right now (pronounce it ‘cru’, not C.R.U. meaning a vineyard of recognised quality in France) a vineyard or group of vineyards, especially one of recognised quality.). The location is well-known since it is just three floors above the Red Sky Bar on the 55th floor of CentralWorld. CRU Rooftop wants to be for the Hi-So and Bangkok Elite people, serving mostly Champagne and selected grand crus (got the name now?). The 360˙ view from up there is simply superb. Note that CRU is not part of Red Sky, and there is a cover charge to go up there (apparently a lot of people tried). Read more

9. Red Sky at Central World

55th floor in Siam

Red Sky Rooftop Restaurant and Bar in Bangkok

Red Sky Rooftop on the 55th floor of the Centara Grand in Bangkok is an upmarket restaurant and bar with relatively better prices when compared to Sky Bar Rooftop or Vertigo at Banyan Tree. The name is wisely chosen if you get one of those amazing sunsets. Of course, some days it rains, or some days the sky is not very red, but we were lucky as usual and witnessed an amazing sunset. The popular part of the restaurant is the outdoor circular terraces but they of course planned for the rainy days with a beautifully decorated indoor room with large windows, so if rain starts, it’s not all lost.

13. Seen Rooftop Bar

27th floor on Thonburi Riverside

Seen Rooftop at Avani Hotel

Seen Rooftop Bar is the latest opening in Bangkok, and we all know it won’t be the last, but Attitude is worth a special mention. What makes Attitude at Avani Hotel interesting is the location on the Thonburi side of the Chao Phraya river, the side that most people only visit when they go to Wat Arun. It might be the reason this rooftop can afford to be so vast, and Attitude took full advantage of so much space. The place is well designed with a bar area next to a very cool open lounge. Further, you will even find a massive infinity pool, but it’s probably reserved for the hotel guests. Read more

16. Spectrum Lounge and Bar at Hyatt Regency

30th floor on Sukhumvit

Spectrum Rooftop Bar at Hyatt Regency Bangkok

Spectrum is the rooftop bar of the Hyatt Regency hotel, at the beginning of Sukhumvit Road, just next to Nana BTS station. It consists of three floors; a tiny terrace on the 53rd, the large main deck on the 54th, and a private party zone on the 55th. The view is nice, but the panorama is somewhat limited because of the immense glass walls built on each side. Note that the central rooftop is only open at 8 pm when it’s dark.

19. Siwilai City Club

5th floor in Ploenchit

Siwilai City Club is not on a very high floor (5th), but the location in Central Embassy shopping mall makes it a good stop for a short break and a photo. The terrace is immense but has a minimal view on the Sukhumvit BTS line because of a large number of plants in plot blocking the view. The tables by the edge always seem to be booked, so you usually end up sitting at a back table, which defeats the purpose.

20. Cielo Sky Bar

46th floor in Sukhumvit

Cielo Sky Bar

Cielo Rooftop Bar is another fantastic high spot at the intersection of Rama IV and Sukhumvit road in Bangkok. The panoramic view from the 46th floor of the Luk Condominium is surprisingly beautiful, considering that the building is on the outskirt of Bangkok. Prices are more affordable than Sky Bar, Sofitel So, and Banyan Tree Vertigo. Read more

21. Mojito Rooftop Bar

Vanilla Sky Rooftop Bar

Mojito is minimalist in design, but with a real 360 view, it is quite a nice place to hang after work. There is no riverside nearby to admire, but the Benjasiri Park is just below to add a touch of green and plenty of skylines to play the game of ‘Recognize that building over there?’ The location at a short walking distance from Phrom Phong BTS station makes it an attractive place to go after work.

Sky on 20 at Novotel Sukhumvit

Sky on 20 Rooftop Bar is the latest addition on the Bangkok rooftop scene, but at the rate they are popping up, this statement will be outdated in a matter of weeks. Built on the 26th floor of the Novotel on Sukhumvit 20 so you can guess that the name wasn’t chosen from the floor. Sky on 20 Rooftop Bar is not a top of the list since the view is so limited for Bangkok, but it’s well designed with a pleasant atmosphere if you stay in this part of Sukhumvit. Read more

Brewski Rooftop Bar is on the 22nd floor of the Radisson Blu on Sukhumvit, and while it is not the highest one in town or doesn’t have the striking views other Bangkok rooftops have, it claims to be the highest Craft Beer bar in Bangkok. The place has a relaxed atmosphere and appears to be hugely popular. Brewski Rooftop Bar is the next rooftop in town in the ever-growing collection; it seems to attract a pretty good crowd. The bar can accommodate a good 90 guests, and indeed, it’s busy with hotel guests and outside customers continually coming in and out, and not everyone gets to sit. Read more

25. Above Eleven

Above Eleven

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 impossible to get a table without a reservation, even a table for two, so call first to be safe. Located on the 33rd and 34th floor of the Fraser suite, Above Eleven is high but doesn’t offer great views of the riverside or the long avenues of Bangkok. However, you are still above most buildings around, and the atmosphere easily makes up for the missing panorama. Read more
