So you want to live the Hangover 2 experience? With our selection of the 5 best rooftops in Bangkok, you can order a nice cocktail while enjoying a stunning view of the city.
Our tip ? Don’t come with flip-flops and try out more than 1 rooftop. You’ll get different views and different experiences…
1- The Sky Bar at Lebua State Tower, where Hangover 2 was shot
Let’s say it’s not the most welcoming place on earth, but cocktails are more than decent and you get to enjoy the Hangover experience. It’s the highest open-air bar in Bangkok. Enjoy the 63rd floor !
Cocktails from 470B ++
Lebua at State Tower, 1055 Silom Road.
2- Vertigo at the Banyan Tree Hotel
Why do we love it? Because although the hotel is kind-of-getting-old-please-renovate-soon, the 360° view on Bangkok is breathtaking. Cocktails are amazing – the food a little less. Go there for a nice evening out !
Cocktails from 350B ++
Banyan Tree Bangkok – 21/100 South Sathorn Road – Sathorn
3- L’Appart at the Sofitel Sukhumvit
The terrace is not that big, but God, what a wonderful place to enjoy a glass of champagne, nice wine or a cocktail (Happy Hour from 5 to 7 pm). Don’t miss the amazing French restaurant l’Appart, right inside and very close to the terrace. You’ll love it we promise.
Cocktails from 340 B ++
Sofitel Sukhumvit, 189 Sukhumvit Road Soi 13-15 - website
4 – Elements & Bar Up and Above at the Okura Prestige Bangkok
Come for an amazing dinner al fresco at the beautiful restaurant Elements : the view is greate and what a creative Chef! (he worked for Joel Robuchon for a while).
You’d rather have a drink? The Up and Above Bar offers a great outdoor terrace (see the picture above).
Okura Hotel, 57 Wireless Road, Lumpini, Pathumwan, Bangkok 10330
5 – Park Society at the Sofitel So Bangkok
When it comes to a great lifestyle hotel, Sofitel So has it right. Designed by the French couturier Christian Lacroix himself, it also boasts a wonderful terrace called Park Society. Inside, a restaurant to .. let’s say, propose with a view. Outside, get the party going with a kind of “select” terrace and lounge bar, where you can also privatize an area called the Hi-So. Get your Amex now. It’s time.
