Drink up: Bangkok's best rooftop bars
Impressive panoramas well above the traffic fumes make Bangkok’s rooftop hangouts a popular option for drinks out. Hefty price tags often accompany the city skyline vistas, but when the vantage points, and the vibes, are this good, it's worth it.
Distil at Lebua Hotel, State Tower
1055 Silom Road
Situated on Lebua hotel’s 64th floor Distil bar is one of the best places to escape the stifling heat for a sundowner. Often overlooked for next door Skybar, Distil is the more laidback (and often less crowded) of the two but still dress to impress.
Three Sixty Lounge, Millenium Hilton
123 Charoennakorn Road, Klongsan
Perched like a UFO atop the riverside Millenium Hilton hotel, the Three Sixty Lounge commands impressive views over Bangkok’s skyline. Take the external glass-walled elevator for extra wow factor –- not for the faint-hearted.
Gazebo Night Club
Khao San Road
The budget rooftop option, Gazebo is a Lonely Planet staple, with cool tunes, Moroccan style shisha pipes and comfy cushions to lounge back on.
The Long Table
Sukhumvit Soi 16
Despite super slick décor and a stunning view, The Long Table is one of Bangkok’s lesser known rooftop spots. Situated conveniently close to the Sukhumvit strip, it channels understated cocktail chic.
