VELA offers you a vantage point from the rooftop, where you can gaze out at the buildings around BTS Sanam Pao at night.

The venue is divided into outdoor and indoor areas. The interior has a raw industrial style with dark-toned furniture and decorative plants that peppered the place.

Feel the chill vibes from the live bands of various genres like jazz, acoustic, indy folk, pop & funk, soul, and R&B, on each night. The food concept features ‘Thai Taste Twist’ - original recipes by Chef Bus, one of the top four contestants of Top Chef Thailand Season 1. Among the options are spicy (and non-spicy) salads, soups, fried & grilled snacks, spaghetti, steaks, and other tasty single-dish meals.

There are options of whiskeys, rums, liqueurs, gins, tequilas, vodkas, wines, and soft drinks. Plus, you should definitely try the cocktails; they’re a unique concoction from VELA’s expert mixologists.

The bar is open daily between 18.00 - 01.30.
