Best new rooftop bars in Bangkok
Crowning the iconic Centara Grand at CentralWorld, four levels higher than the famous Red Sky restaurant and bar, CRU offers mind-blowing views of the Bangkok horizon alongside drinks made in partnership with G.H. Mumm Champagne.
Hidden in quiet Soi Sukhumvit 20, no one would expect the Novotel Hotel to have this lovely rooftop bar. The compact venue combines a laid-back ambiance and nice views with affordable drinks, and offers a cool spot to unwind on weeknights.
Named after the mellow hue the sky took on when its owner first arrived at the location, Vanilla Sky is nestled on the 35th floor of Compass SkyView (aka that tower sitting right behind the Emporium mall), offering stunning views of Sukhumvit from every angle. The music is pretty chill, and perfectly complement the bar’s selection of refreshing cocktails.
