Time Out says
Local DJs in a New York-style rooftop bar
Bangkok’s sweltering heat doesn’t stop a bunch of expats and tourists from enjoying the last rays of sun over happy hour at multi-level rooftop spot, Octave. Located at Marriott Hotel Sukhumvit, Octave offers light, East-meets-West bites and tapas-style dishes for you to nibble on while enjoying the bar’s signature cocktails. What makes this New York-style rooftop even cooler is how it serves moreish finger food in a transparent chest of drawers resembling skyscrapers. We recommend the waruoro platter (fresh oysters, tuna salmon nigiri, California roll and rainbow roll, B1200) and the enothini platter (prawn and bacon sliders, marinated chicken with mango coriander salsa, tuna tartar and sesame wafers, goat cheese with caramelized onions and crab-cake pops, B1200). Meanwhile, local ingredients are used to create cocktails like a Thai-style mojito (Thai rum, lime, mango and basil) and Shining Sun (rum, tamarind, pomelo, lime shrub, mango and pineapple juice). The menu is rotated every four months and promotional menus crop up every month. A local DJ takes over the decks from 8pm until late.
