Bangkok is breathtaking at night. As we stood on the 83rd floor of Baiyoke Sky Hotel’s Rooftop Bar, also the highest point in Bangkok, we were utterly amazed by the beauty of the city’s skyline.
And Bangkok’s amazing rooftop bars are a must-visit when you travel to the Land of Smiles. There are more than 10 rooftop bars in Bangkok city, but we picked out a handful of the best for you to spend your nights at when in the city.
This list of 5 Rooftop Bars in Bangkok With Breathtaking Views Of The City might help with itinerary-planning for your next trip to Bangkok.
#1 BAIYOKE SKY ROOFTOP BAR
As the tallest point in the city, you can only expect panoramic views of the cityscape here. The 360 degree view of Bangkok from Baiyoke Sky’s revolving view point took our breath away. Surprisingly, drinks are not expensive here and a standard cocktail costs an average of THB150 (S$6). The only downside is that if you are not a guest of the hotel, you have to pay an extra THB400 baht (includes one basic drink) as an entrance to the rooftop bar.
The drinks here are kept simple and the complimentary drinks range from house pour liquor shooters to traditional cocktails.

#2 PARK SOCIETY, SOFITEL SO BANGKOK
This rooftop bar might not be perched atop a towering skyscraper, but what Park Society at Sofitel So promises is great drinks at reasonable prices, with an ambience to beat. Rest and relax after a day of shopping, and bask in the sexy mood here at Park Society.
Drink prices start from THB290 (S$11.60) for a glass of house wine, and while it may be relatively expensive, think of how Park Society has an intriguing oriental-inspired interior that emulates vibes like no other. The experience will be worth it.

#3 RED SKY ROOFTOP BAR
Located at Centara Grand Hotel at Central World, Red Sky Rooftop Bar is one of our favourite rooftop bars ever. The funky and edgy design of Red Sky, coupled with great cocktails, made it a sure-win for us.
You can choose to have some food indoors, then head out to the open-air bar for a great selection of drinks. Prices here start from THB300 (S$12) for a decent pint of beer or a simple cocktail.

#4 SCARLETT WINE BAR & RESTAURANT, PULLMAN G
Situated on the 37th level of Pullman G Hotel in Bangkok, Scarlett Restaurant & Wine Bar is known to be one of the best places to take in the city vibes with its 160 square metre open-air balcony.
The alfresco seating is extremely popular and is often booked out daily, so reservations are a must. Scarlett is also known for their delectable range of sweet treats that you can have alongside your drinks from the bar.

#5 VERTIGO & MOON BAR
Vertigo & Moon Bar in Banyan Tree Bangkok is the pride of the city, according to our bubbly cab driver. We can see why – Banyan Tree is a beautiful luxury hotel in Bangkok that offers top-notch and excellent service.
As the rooftop bar and restaurant is extremely popular, we were greeted with a full house at the bar on a typical weekday evening, much to our surprise. For a bigger group, reservations are most necessary. Although the drinks here are pricier at THB500 (S$20) onwards, the stunning view alone was enough to wow us. A night here with their drinks is definitely worth the “splurge”.
