The Sky Bar Bangkok is a very popular restaurant and bar based on top of a building with a breathtaking view of Bangkok and the Chao Phraya River. Located on the 64th floor the views are something you don’t want to miss at sunset in Thailand. The location is very good and it is a cozy rooftop bar.
The drinks are pricey but the ambient and the views are well worth the money. The bar is much better than many roof top bars in Bangkok in design and the views are also better with lower buildings around and a massive river underneath which lights up at night. There is also the Zeppelin Bar & Restaurant in Bangkok as well.
Note that there is a dress code which means covered shoes for guys and dressier open-toe for ladies. They will turn you away if you do not meet this standard! Ok, so the drinks are incredibly expensive but if you do just one thing in Bangkok please do have a drink at the sky bar…absolutely amazing! The location is also excellent and if you are using the BTS you can get off at the BTS Surasak Station or at the Saphan Taksin Station in Bangrak.
There are some excellent hotels in the area such as the Shangri-La Hotel as well as the Centre Point Hotel and the Blue Elephant Restaurant in Bangkok. If you are staying at one of these hotels then you can walk around to the Skybar in Bangkok as it is less than 300 meters away.
