Dinner on Top of Bangkok


This enormous city can be best described as one of the most trendy rooftop venues in Bangkok from where you can expressly enjoy the eye view of a bird on the sprawling metropolis as you sip a refreshing cocktail. The best time to get in is the afternoon as you will witness the sun setting behind the scenic Chao Phraya River that attracts many tourists.

D’Sens Bar and Restaurant


This elegant French-themed bar and restaurant is highly recommended with its three Michelin stars, perfect view of the Lumpini Park from the 22nd (top) floor of the Dusit Thani Bangkok. Order some Jacques and Laurent Pourcel from Le Jardin fame. Most of the people who come in here are young high earning professionals.

Gazebo


This is a restaurant club cum bar that will give you’re the real upscale Moroccan loft ambiance. The shisha pipes, soft lamps and plump cushions are very Cairo. Add to this the belly dancing performer and it is like being transported to another time and place. They also play a reggae music which makes the place a bit more eclectic.

While the reggae adds much to the eclecticism, the sultry evening breeze gives you a taste of an Arabian Night’s feeling. You can then move on to the next door to meet the raucous alter ego in Gazebo once your eyes glaze over. After midnight, the entry is 300 Baht to some small dark club room with loud dance beats and nocturnes at 3am.

The Long Table

This is a hidden jewel in Bangkok’s crown that resides on the Column Tower—25th Floor.

The concept of the restaurant is unique. They have one long table that sits about 70 people. It gives people who dine here more chances of meeting new people. However, it is important to note that the long table is spacious. You don’t have to worry about being crowded by people you don’t know kno.

The walls are glass which makes the place look bigger than it is.

Three Sixty


The Millennium Hilton Hotel is the latest addition to the skyline of Bangkok. It is located on the Chonburi side of the Chao Phraya River. You will need to take a short ferry ride across this river from River City Pier.

You have to take the elevator all the way to the 31st floor and then go up one more floor through the staircase. It is a sophisticated jazz lounge with 360 degree views. There is a smoking area.

 

Vertigo


This open air bar-cum restaurant is raised 61 floors above the great and bustling streets of Bangkok. You will enjoy the sophisticated, stylish and romantic scene. You should actually indulge in some of the world’s finest exotic cocktails, champagne, nonalcoholic beverages in the bar section, wine by the glass or you get on for the most memorable dinner composed of some barbecued seafood.

There is also a telescope is available for most nights if you want to go a bit closer to the stars. During the weekends, they also have a live jazz band but don’t worry, the band is not too loud to put you out of your peaceful zone.
