On the 32nd floor, Above Eleven is my favorite rooftop restaurant in Bangkok. On the Sukhumvit Sui 11 party district, the vibe of this rooftop restaurant in Bangkok.

Above Eleven Restaurants & Rooftops
Perfect New Year celebration

This is the top 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. This is where we had our New Year’s Eve dinner and enjoyed an incredible Peruvian culinary experience on this rooftop restaurant in Bangkok.

The food, the drinks, the view, and the audience is a perfect rooftop restaurant in Bangkok experience! 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. Then, keep the party going at the downstairs bars and nightclubs or take a taxi home after a fabulous night among the stars. The best restaurants in Bangkok offer a vibe no other city has!

3. Atmosphere: 5

4. Design: 5

5. Service: 5

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

Can it get more romantic than this?

Although it doesn’t come cheap, the food here is outstanding, particularly the tornedau. The wine and cocktails list are as extensive as expected from a rooftop restaurant in Bangkok.  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 great rooftop restaurant in Bangkok.  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 is the scariest among the best restaurants in Bangkok. However, when you reach the final destination, this rooftop restaurant in Bangkok will be worth it!

3. Octave – The Best View in Town!

Octave is the new rooftop restaurant in Bangkok. It offers the best 360° view of Bangkok and if you ask me, it’s the place to enjoy the magic sunset. 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 like Asian-style tapas platters and a seafood bar along with a great wine and cocktail list.  This rooftop restaurant in Bangkok has a pretty unique dining experience. The setting and vibe make this one of the best restaurants in Bangkok.

Nothing beats this view!

Located in the Marriott Hotel Sukhumvit, it is just a 15 min walk from my favorite Bangkok hood, Thonglor. There, you’ll find more low key and local experiences, a perfect combination!

4. Hi-So, The Bar – A Luxury Lounge Vibe Spot

This lounge vibe rooftop you will find on top of the luxury So Sofitel. A truly cool design hotel with urban vibes and a luxury feel. The rooftop has a chill and relaxed atmosphere. Perfect for watching the sunset in some of the lounge sofas or if you arrive early at the front row with just a glass wall in between you and the bustling  Bangkok life down there. The roof top faces Lumpini park so gives you a bit of a different angel of Bangkok by night.

We had a light dinner and the food was good, even though not outstanding but the drinks made up for this. Creative mixology style cocktails perfect way to end the day at one of the best rooftop restaurant in Bangkok. The service is perfect here. Friendly, welcoming and professional so if you are looking for a chill end of the day, Hi-So is the place to be!

5. Sirocco – A Touristic Must-Visit

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 restaurant in Bangkok. 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.

Enjoying the view…

I have never eaten here so can not evaluate the food but this rooftop restaurant in Bangkok is all about the view and the setting. Walking down the big stairs with Bangkok at your feet make you feel like a celebrity. It’s the kind of experience that sets the best restaurants in Bangkok apart!

6. CRU Champagne Bar – The 360  Luxury Place For Bubbles 

1. Food: NA

2. Drinks: 4

3. Atmosphere: 5

4. Design: 5

5. Service: 4

A relatively new place located on top of the Central World mall,  CRU champagne baris a must on any list of rooftop restaurant in Bangkok list. A truly spectacular place where luxury and panoramic view of Bangkok are the red thread. The stairs up to the first floor bar is breathtaking but do not stop here. Continue all the way up to the 360 bar where angels are said to play.

Sky High Luxury !

We did not eat here but the restaurant looked great, also with a good view as long as you sit outside but it is the two bars above that makes you want to come back to this place. Champagne, caviar and the most stunning view of my favorite city – or just a beer and a glass of wine is also fine!

Good NIght Bangkok!

Some more 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 of the best restaurants in Bangkok to keep you entertained for a few evenings.

Badmotel – A Hip Local Cuisine & Bar

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, with nothing to envy to the best rooftop restaurant in Bangkok!

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. Easily among the best restaurants in Bangkok!

The Commons – The Coolest Place in Bangkok

The Commons is the coolest place in town, even more than whatever your favorite rooftop restaurant in Bangkok is. Full of restaurants, shops, and bars, this community mall is a meeting point for like-minded people. The focus is on fashion, sustainability, and entrepreneurship. You can find some of the best restaurants in Bangkok here!

Roast – The Best Breakfast in Town

1.  Food: 4

2. Drinks: 4

3. Atmosphere: 5

4. Design: 4

5. Service: 5

One of the best restaurants in Thonglor, it’s on the top floor of The Commons. Roast is perfect for lunch and brunch, with multiple options. I’m partial to their avocado toast, omelets, and smoothies. I love the ambiance as much as any rooftop restaurant in Bangkok!

The design is fun: industrial chic and modern, a unique combo uncommon in any rooftop restaurant in Bangkok. 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!

Brunch time…

With its exquisite food and rich flavours, Thai cuisine deserves an in-depth approach whenever you visit Bangkok. For a fun gastronomic experience, check out this Bangkok by Night Tuk Tuk Tour: Markets, Temples & Food!
