Bangkok is known and admired for her beautiful skyline – especially when the sun goes down and the lights come on. If you are looking for the perfect sundowner or simply a place to enjoy a great night out with clients or friends, we look at our Top 5 favorite spots you must check out:
1. Sky Bar, Bangkrak
This is the bar from the famous Hangover Part II and situated 63 floors above street level. You can grab a beautiful meal at the acclaimed Sirocco before heading Sky Bar to enjoy arguably one of the best views in the city. We suggest trying the Hangovertini Cocktail.
The Dome at lebua 63rd floor, 1055/42 Silom Road, Bangrak, Bangkok
2. The Speakeasy Rooftop Bar, Pathumwan
The two-storey venue can be summed up as a more refined establishment in the rooftop bar scene in Bangkok. A great place to bring a date or, for some civilized drinks with clients & friends. You can choose to spend time in one of the three dining rooms, cigar room a roof lawn or the terrace bar. You’ll be in safe hands of Michelin star chef Jean Baptiste when it comes to food.

3. Above Eleven, Sukhumvit
If you want to escape the energy and crowds of Sukhumvit Soi 11 to enjoy a view from the top, then this is the spot for you. A beautifully carved out design invites you into a warm space that dishes out some incredibly delicious Peruvian Japanese fare. The bathrooms also double up as some insanely good viewing platforms.
Above Eleven, Fraser Suites, 38/8 Soi Sukhumvit 11, Khlong Tan Nuea, Khet Vadhana, Bangkok
4. Wanderlust, Thonglor
If you wanted a slightly more casual setting without breaking the bank, then this is it. The fake grass and eclectic artwork splashed around a groovy and slightly younger student type crowd, makes wanderlust a hip and affordable rooftop experience. The grub is pub-fare and very good.
Thong Lo 13 Alley, Khlong Tan Nuea, Watthana, Bangkok
5. Sala Rattanakosin, Rattanakosin Island
Situated close to the banks of Bangkok’s Chao Phraya River, the views from this rooftop bar capture that of the Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun) and Bangkok’s Old City. The headline eatery & rar serves an attractive combination of authentic Thai and Mediterranean-inflected international dishes. Take in the ‘vibes’ while experiencing a different view of the city
