Breathtaking views, awesome ambience and sumptuous spirits – the sky bars in Bangkok have it all. Here are five rooftop bars in Bangkok to add to your must-visit list.
For a jazzy time with views of the Chao Phraya
Staying at Millennium Hilton Bangkok? Then don’t miss its two-storey jazz lounge with a rooftop terrace, ThreeSixty Jazz Lounge and Rooftop Bar (main picture above). Bask in the chilled vibes of live jazz while taking in the spectacular views of the Chao Phraya River.
At the lounge and terrace, talented mixologists create drinks with practiced aplomb. Their Signature Cocktails range from the ‘Citrus Mojito’ – a tangy take on the classic cocktail of lemons, limes and oranges, served in a pickle jar – to the ‘Robusto Mojito’, made from Cuban cigar-infused rum with fresh lime, mint and hazelnut syrup.
Embracing the elevated nature of this oasis, the ThreeSixty Jazz Lounge and terrace are perfect places to unwind and take in panoramic vistas.
