There are plenty of bars and clubs all over the swanky metropolis of Bangkok, from the trendy neighbourhood of Ekamai and Thonglor to the red light districts of Nana and Patpong, and the backpacker haven down Khaosan Road. The buzz and excitement of those places is something else, but something is missing – an incredible view of Bangkok.
As entertainment venues officially opened today, here are five classy rooftop bars we recommend you should visit, all with an amazing 360 degree view of Bangkok.
The 61st-floor Vertigo & Moon rooftop bar at Banyan Tree Bangkok offers a spectacular 360-degree view of the city. It’s a partnership between Vertigo, serving as the restaurant, and Moon Bar where the drinks are served. The venue has everything you might want in terms of refreshments. Fancy champagnes, unique cocktails, beer, wine, and non-alcoholic beverages can all be ordered from the illuminated bar.
Opening Hours: 5pm to 12am
Location: 21/100 S Sathorn Rd, Khwaeng Thung Maha Mek, Sathon, Bangkok 10120
CRU Champagne Bar is one of Bangkok’s best and most talked-about rooftop bars. It is located on the roof of the Centara Grand in Central World, one floor above Red Sky, another well-known rooftop bar and restaurant. There are some amazing drinks and libations available, including a wide choice of trademark champagne cocktails. There is also a gourmet bar snack menu available for those who like a nibble. We recommend booking a seat in advance, but you have to pay a deposit. The price depends on the seat itself. For example, a table for two by the edge costs 6,000 baht, and a table for 7 costs 21,000 baht deposit.
Opening Hours: 5pm to 12am, 7 days a week.

Tichuca Rooftop Bar
Tichuca is a relatively recent addition to Bangkok’s rooftop scene, but it has already impressed the sky bar audience. The 3 story jungle-themed rooftop bar is located on top of the T-One office skyscraper in Ekamai. There is plenty of green and wooden furniture, all of which is encircled by spectacular panoramic views of Bangkok. While there are several reasons why many people keep coming back, one of the most notable is the LED “tree” that lights up the bar.
