Bangkok Nightlife

In this big city you are lost without knowing where to find the best and most interesting places to go out. This page would like to help you and give you some tips on where to find great restaurants, bars, clubs and coffee shops. The site is called Bangkok Nightlife, but of course some restaurants and bars are also open during the day. This page is updated regularly with new tips and recommendations. Let me inspire you.

Restaurants

My tips range from typical Thai dishes and drinks (street food) to very exclusive cuisine (fine dining). There is no specific order and it is rather random depending on my experiences I have made and I personally tried out everything I write here.

Chef’s Table lebua

I’ll start with what is probably the most exclusive and best restaurant in Bangkok the Chef’s Table lebua at State Tower. Here we are with Bangkoks best fine dining restaurant at highly 61th floor where they serve you a delicious 7 course dinner marking an absolutly highlight for all gourmets.

I don’t need to say much about the excellent taste and the perfect service in this ambience. Everything is perfectly coordinated and created harmoniously. Simply wonderful to watch the chefs create these delicacies.

If you want to go out for a very special occasion and want to experience the finest quality, then you are in good hands with chef de cuisine Vincent Thierry, sous chef Pierre Chomet and pastry chef Guillaume Tournemolle.

Sky and Rooftop Bars

Since Bangkok is very famous for its rooftop bars, I will focus on this and introduce you to really great bars. In almost no other city in the world you have such a large selection of first-class bars. And some are relatively new and still unknown and therefore a real insider tip. I’ve recently written a blog article about my 5 favorite bars, but of course there are many more great bars. I would be happy if I can inspire you.

Skybar lebua at State Tower

The Lebua Skybar became famous through the movie Hangover 2 because some scenes from the movie were filmed at this amazing spot and is one of the highest rooftop bar in the world at 63th floor. The Cocktails are very delicious and the view is incredible.

Spectrum Lounge & Bar

This is one of our favorite new rooftop bar in town and opening was in March 2019 in the centre of Sukhumvit close to the BTS station Nana. Hyatt Regency stands for exclusive and sophisticated lifestyle and reflects this with its fine rooftop bar. The lounge is spread over three levels with a restaurant on the 29th floor and further up a bar on two floors. The team with Golf, Ploy, Opal and the colleagues around Bar Manager AJ does a great job and I therefore feel very comfortable. A daily changing DJ plays chilled electro music and creates a great atmosphere at sunset. I am a big fan of good wine and sometimes I go with the Hole in one Cocktail.
