Perfect New Year celebration

On the 32nd floor, Above Eleven is my favorite rooftop restaurant in Bangkok. On the Sukhumvit Sui 11 party district, the vibe is amazing, more relaxed than most Bangkok eateries.

This is the best spot to have some drinks and dance under the stars or just enjoy a delicious dinner with a magic view of one of my favorite cities. We had our New Year’s Eve dinner here and enjoyed a top-notch Peruvian culinary experience.

The food, the drinks, the view and the audience is perfect! Built on 3 levels makes this place feel personal and cozy, yet with a luxury touch! Mix it up with locals and tourists, all ages – and then keep the party going at the downstairs bars and nightclubs or take a taxi home after a fabulous night among the stars!

Vertigo and Moon Bar

1. Food: 5

2. Drinks: 4

3. Atmosphere: 5

4. Design: 5

5. Service: 5

Of all the places to eat in Bangkok, Vertigo is the most romantic one. Built to resemble a ship on the heights, this is the coolest rooftop  I have ever visited! Located on the 62nd floor, on top of the Banyan Tree hotel this place is for sure a must visit!

Although it doesn’t come cheap, the food here is outstanding, particularly the tornedau. The wine list is extensive and the cocktails extensive.  You can also skip the food and just chill with some drinks at their Moon Bar. The service is a perfect blend of Thai friendliness and the professionalism you can expect from a place like this.  The staff are also professional photographer and knows how to get the perfect photo even though the sun and light long disappeared!

True to its name, Vertigo is not a place for those with a fear of heights. The last stairs to the 62nd floor can be a bit scary but when you reach the final destination, it will be worth it!

Octave

Octave is one of the newest luxury rooftops in Bangkok. It offers the best 360° view of Bangkok and if you ask me!  This is the best place to enjoy the magic sunset over vibrant Bangkok. Built in a cool way, as a multi-zone outlet with a restaurant in lounge style and with a magic rooftop for cocktails and drinks, you can easily spend your evening here. 

The food is new-age fusion food such as Asian-style tapas platters and a seafood bar along with a great wine and cocktail list. The setting and vibe makes this one of the best restaurants in Bangkok.

Located in the Marriott Hotel Sukumvit, it is just a 15 min walk from my favorite Bangkok hood of Thonglor with some more low key and local experiences, a perfect combination!

Found my favorite sunset spot
Sirocco

1. Food: NA

2. Drinks: 3

3. Atmosphere: 4

4. Design: 3

5. Service: 3

One of the most iconic luxury restaurants in Thailand, Sirocco is the most visited rooftop. To me, its popularity has made it lose authenticity, as it’s now very touristic but it is still worth a visiting.  The view is  magnificent, plus the chance to see where The Hangover Part II was filmed. On the day you visit Sirocco, drop by the Mandarin Oriental too, as it’s a 10-minute walk away.

I have never eaten here so can not evaluate the food but this place is all about the view and the setting. Walking down the big stairs with Bangkok at your feet make you feel like a celebrity!

My favorite restaurants in Thonglor

Shabby as they might look outside, there are some really hip restaurants in Thonglor. Also called Sukhumvit Soi 55, it has enough cool places here to keep you entertained for a few evenings.

Badmotel

1. Food: 4

2. Drinks: 4

3. Atmosphere: 4

4. Design: 4

5. Service: 4

The food in Bangkok tends to be really good, and Badmotel is exceptional! Offering modern and spicy Thai flavors surrounded by cool, shabby and industrial design, Badmotel is self-described as “demolition chic.” It’s a bar, restaurant and art gallery!

I love their small backyard where you can eat outdoors without the noise of the outside traffic. Here you get a true Thai culinary experience with modern influences and the relaxed hipster vibe makes me return to this place over and over again!

The Commons

The Commons is the coolest place in Bangkok. Full of restaurants, shops and bars, this community mall is a meeting point for like-minded people. The focus is on  orfashion, sustainability and entrepreneurship.

Roast

2. Drinks: 4

3. Atmosphere: 5

4. Design: 4

5. Service: 5

One of my favorite restaurants in Thonglor, at the top floor of The Commons. Roast is perfect for lunch and brunch, with multiple options. I’m partial to their avocado toast, omelettes and smoothies!

The design is fun: industrial chic and modern. The local and hip crowd hangs out here, working or just enjoying the day, so the vibe is amazing.  This is a very popular place so you might have to wait between 10 to 15 minutes for a table but it is worth it! The staff is amazing here. Very professional and yet friendly in an authentic way, making your experience perfect!

  1. I always love rooftops! It’s a good mixture of enjoying the time with a drink or a bite, and having those beautiful views on the city!

  2. There is always some sophistication that comes with roof tops! I like you ratings of the different restaurants and clearly you have a keen eye for details and appreciate fine things in life!

  3. Looks like you had a blast in Bangkok. Good views and vibes. And the food dishes looked so savory. I think I’ll be eating Thai for dinner. 🙂

    This is a lovely post on Bangkok! Love all these places, but Badmotel is definitely my favourite, if just for the name!

  5. This post came to me just in time, we are planning to visit Bangkok later this year! I really like the look of Roast and also The Commons – the rooftop restaurants look great too but I really like the low key vibes better – will definitely need to reference this on our trip!

  6. Great review. I love romantic rooftops especially with great food and drinks. Nice views from roofs in Bangkok .
