Sky Bar rooftop at Lebua State Tower offers one of the best views in the city. 63 floors
up and overlooking the river, it has become a must-do for a sundowner cocktail. Around
ten minutes’ walk from Saphan Taksin BTS it is very easy to find, just look up and walk
towards the tall cream building with the gold dome on the roof. It may not be the most
relaxed experience as people will flock here on a clear day and it gets crowded, but the
vista is one you won’t forget in a hurry. You can still have a drink and enjoy the view
from Distil. This comfortable oyster and whisky bar has an outdoor terrace with
a comfortable cushioned sofa area.
There are plenty of other original cocktail choices, as well as a good range of beers
and wines. If you are coming for a special occasion it is worth considering dinner at Sirocco,
where you can enjoy a romantic dinner at the world’s highest rooftop restaurant. Although
the crowds at Sky Bar and the lack of seating don’t make for a relaxing drink, the unusual
cocktails and arguably the best views in Bangkok make a visit here well worth the trip.
