The 1920s-inspired bar located on the 24th and 25th floor of the boutique Hotel Muse in Lang Suan is like something out of prohibitian-era TV series Boardwalk Empire. With authentic cocktails, including takes on forgotten classics like Sazerac 1838 (B350) and Old Fashioned (B350), The Speakeasy rolls out a classy atmosphere to match the 180-degree urban view. Head there this week before the 25th floor closes for renovations from Jul 10-Aug 12; though the cute 24th floor balcony will remain open during this time.
The latest rooftop bar and restaurant to emerge on the Sukhumvit Soi 11 party strip, Above Eleven serves Peruvian-Japanese fusion fare, known as Nikkei cuisine, along with a refreshing list of cocktails made from Peruvian Pisco. The bar provides a peaceful space in the heart of the city, decked out with wooden seats surrounded by fake grass and a large glass wall that allows you to, again, embrace the 180-degree view.
A good compromise. Girls can let their guys catch all the big match action at Beer Vault on the ground floor, while they head up to the 8th floor to kick back by the poolside at amBar. Enjoy a few tasty cocktails or beers with friends while soaking up the chill house tunes, before reuniting for a post-game cocktail (with special deals every day).
Now that Central Ladprao is once again a hot shopping destination, the Blue Sky Bar up on the 24th floor of the Centara Grand is well worth returning to for nice and affordable cocktails in their alfresco zone. This month, the bar also offers a buy-one-get-one-free deal on standard drinks during happy hours from 10-11pm.
OK, it’s not on a roof, but it is cute and new. Months ago we mentioned that as part of the Sofitel Silom’s rebranding as Pullman Bangkok Hotel G, the longstanding V9 would become Scarlett Wine Bar and Restaurant. And rounding out the new additions, along with gourmet burger joint 25 Degrees, is a lobby bar called Playground, which is nicely decked out in an industrial style. A long dark wooden table fills the first floor, with the mezzanine laid out with white sofas and old-fashioned bric-a-brac. It’s as good place a place as any to hide from the match action, a refreshing cocktail in hand.
