See how Bangkok actually looks beneath your feet at the city’s best rooftop bars.
Best rooftop bars in Bangkok
You probably think eating at a restaurant at the Millennium Hilton will cost you a small fortune, but rooftop bar ThreeSixty refutes this reputation. Offering casual Western cuisine with panoramic 360-degree views, ThreeSixty is perfect for couples and friends hoping to spend their afternoons in a luxurious yet laid-back setting. The venue is best-known for their rooftop picnics, even offering picnic hampers (B1800 net for two persons) stocked with gourmet delights such as lobster and shrimp cocktail salad and foie gras terrine. The basket also contains a serving of deep-fried prawns (packaged in a Chinese take-out box) and beef sandwiches. If you fancy a cocktail—or two—to liven up your picnic, we recommend the Isan Summer (Guatemala rum, orange, passion fruit, Thai tea syrup and kaffir lime, B450), pink sangria (chopped fresh fruits and rosé wine, B450), Bohemian Bliss (absinthe with apple juice, B450) or the Seduction of a Geisha (cognac, Japanese sake, green tea, fresh ginger and shitake syrup, B450), which comes with sashimi.
Located at Marriott Hotel Sukhumvit, Octave offers light, East-meets-West bites and tapas-style dishes for you to nibble on while enjoying signature cocktails made of local ingredients. A local DJ takes over the decks from 8pm until late.
The outdoor balcony of Park Society is one of the most famous rooftop bars in Bangkok, thanks to the sweeping views over Lumphini Park. Seeking even more stunning views? Climb up one floor to exclusive rooftop bar, Hi-So.
Soar up to Centara Grand at CentralWorld’s rooftop to experience 360-degree city views. Lights are dimmed after sunset in the alfresco section to effect a breezy, romantic vibe. If you’d rather see what’s on your plate, reserve a table in the airconditioned indoor section or at the bar.
After taking your fill of classic Thai food by British chef Tony Wrigley at Sala Rattanakosin’s restaurant, climb up to the hotel’s photogenic rooftop bar to enjoy the breeze and a bevy of colorful cocktails.
