Sitting on the 64th floor of Lebua, the swanky Alfresco 64 makes up the latest addition to The Dome, which also houses a number of fine-dining restaurants and high-end bars. The whisky bar’s overall design is evocative of a luxurious yacht. Instead of views of the ocean, however, you get unparalleled views of the Bangkok cityline.

Set on the 40th floor of the swanky hotel, this open-air bar is cheery and colorful, yet maintains an air of class, thanks to the tasteful design of renowned architectural design firm Hassell. The space is an Instagrammers’ paradise as every corner is carefully designed for a photo-op. Bright-hued banquettes inject a fun, youthful vibe, while lush plants and pretty frond mural evoke the feeling of being in a tropical backyard. Prime spot would be the alfresco terrace, which offers breathtaking views of the Sathorn skyline and beyond.

Bid adieu to The Roof Gastro. The long-standing, sky-high rooftop bar at the quirkily designed hotel near The National Stadium has been given a facelift.

The drinks focus on refreshing flavor profile with a strong emphasis on zero-waste philosophy. Bar chows are courtesy of the innovative Thai rooftop restaurant Taan.

If you were recently on the other side of the river, you may have noticed that there’s been a little change to the rooftop of the Avani Riverside Hotel (now called Avani+). Attitude Rooftop Bar and Restaurant is no more (its departure doesn’t come as a big surprise), and has been replaced by the first Asian outpost of Seen, a popular restaurant and bar chain from Sao Paolo, Brazil. Headed by Portuguese chef Olivier da Costa, Seen brings a whole new look and vibe to the space—from the shimmering gold and brown décor, to a playlist of Latino music, to international-influenced food and cocktails.

Located on the 63rd floor of the State Tower, Sirocco & Sky Bar is a must-visit for both locals and foreigners visiting Bangkok.

Kick off your night in alfresco settings with an authentic Mediterranean meal at Sirocco before heading up to the Sky bar for an after-dinner drink. Whiskey fans will find more to love about this venue; the bar stocks up on many heritage bottles that are rarely found in Bangkok.

While the decor takes you almost a century back, the music, in contrast, at this double level Speakeasy is modern all the way; DJs play house on the rooftop (25th floor) and pop tunes on the 24th floor. Grab a table by the edge of the terrace to enjoy the best views of Bangkok’s city lights.
