A great rooftop bar by Bangkok riverside
The Three Sixty Rooftop Lounge at Millennium Hilton Bangkok 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 indeed fantastic views as it seems to hang high above the busy Chao Phraya river, but it would not qualify as a rooftop if there was no outdoor area.
You need to walk behind that cupola to find the real outdoor terrace and its dedicated bar with plenty of super comfortable sofas to hang and watch boats and barges gliding down the river, and the day light fading away on the Bangkok skyline.
They even used to play old Chaplin movie nights and serve Valentine picnic baskets with Champagne, that was really creative and super fun. Their choice of wines by the glass and fun cocktails is excellent. The dress code is smart casual, no flip-flops, sleeveless tee shirts and short pants. Prices are what you can expect from a 5 star hotel rooftop, a beer was 250 baht and a glass of wine starts at 500 baht, all prices come with 7% tax and 10% service charge… while that seems to be expensive, that’s pretty much the norm for such venue.
Three Sixty Rooftop Lounge is still one of our favourite rooftops in Bangkok because it’s a little less hectic than Sky bar at State Tower or Vertigo at Banyan Tree, and you get to ride a little boat across the river to reach the hotel, nice little romantic touch.
