Sky Bar 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. So there is no better place for a hangover than here. The Lebua Skybar is one of the highest Rooftop Bars in the world at Level 63 and have an amazing Skyline view. This is the place to be in Bangkok and should not be missed during your trip in the City of Angels.
Well, I tried some of the cocktails and it is clear to order one “Hangovertini” featured by the movie. Be aware that this Rooftop Bar is one of the world’ s best hence the dress code is Smart Casual and no flip flops, open shoes and shorts allowed.

Red Sky Bar
I was on a shopping tour with my friends in one of the large shopping malls at Center World and went to the amazing Red Sky Rooftop bar which is very close to the mall on lofty heights of 55th floor of the Centara Hotel on Bangkok’s Sukhumvit. We liked to relax after a busy shopping day, chill with music and cocktails and enjoy the breathtaking 360-degree skyline view. The bar opens in the day at 11:30 AM and is not much crowded in the day. But more beautiful in the evening by sunrise and night with light building window.
Open hours 11:30 am – 1:00 am

The Above eleven rooftop bar is one of my favourite bars. It is located in the area Sukhumvit at Soi 11 in the Frazer Building at 33rd and 34th level. The area is famouse for his many bars, restaurants and clubs. Well, what is now special on this bar? It is a combination of the the architecture of the lounge, the food and beverage menue and the amazing Bangkok Skyline view. This composition makes an incredible well feeling like in 2nd home. The rooftopbar itselfs is for me more restaurant then bar because they serve very delicious food. So if you go there then make a reservation via their website and try the outstanding food which is a mix of perivian and asian platterns. Try the sushi and sashimi, you will love it.
Open hours 6:00 pm – 2:00 am

Belga Brasserie & Bar
Last week we visited the Belga Rooftop Bar and Brasserie (formerly “L’ Apart ) in the Sofitel Hotel at the 32nd Level and met the Restaurant Manager Peter Laird . The Belga Rooftop Bar is the only belgian restaurant in Thailand which makes it very special. Now the bar has changed the concept to more casual bar and brasserie with food and drink specialities from Belgium like Shrimp Croquettes, Moules frites, belgian waffels and the famous belgian beer. The facility has two areas, an in- and outdoor bar and the indoor restaurant with an open cooking space. Surprise is the amazing skyline view and also the affordable price level for the very delicious food and drinks. Your stay in Sukhumvit area close to Terminal 21 makes it easy to get there or just stay in the Sofitel Hotel.

SEEN Restaurant & Bar
This bar is one of my absolutly favorite place in Bangkok and provides an amazing view of the Skyline and Chao Phraya river. The Avani Riverside Hotel and in close neigbourhood the Anantara Hotel is in the heart of Bangkok which is in the Thanboru area you need to take some effort to get there from Sukhumvit district. Take the BTS and step out at Saphan Taksin. From there it is just a short ride by Taxi to the Avani Riverside Hotel. The menue card offers international and portuguese food and the drinks are international style. You will miss nothing and the taste is very delicious. I tried the french Oyster and the Spider Roll Sushi with a “Lions Tail” Cocktail (Bourbon, Pimento dram, fresh lime juice, gomme syrup, angostura bitters ). Cool beats from a DJ are surrounding the bar and you feel like glamorous. In total a visit is highly recommended and a must.
Open hours 6:00 pm – 1:00 am
