7 Incredible Rooftop Bars in Sukhumvit Area

7 Incredible Rooftop Bars in Sukhumvit Area

There’s no better way to take in the bustling atmosphere of Bangkok city than through a bird’s eye view on a rooftop with a perfectly crafted drink in hand. Up next on our series of rooftop hotspots is no other than right downtown in the Sukhumvit area where a lot of the action happens between dusk till dawn.

As most locations open their doors in the evenings, unwind your day by watching the sunset against the horizons and the skyscrapers light up the night.

With such a vast number of choices to choose from, we’ve curated a list of seven incredible rooftop bars that we feel serve a smashing combination of food, drinks, and a view.

The aptly named Above 11 on the 32nd and 33rd floor of Fraser Suites at the end of Soi 11 has gotten its name for their fine fusion of Japanese - Peruvian called Nikkei cuisine and Asian infused cocktail mixes.

The two-floored venue has glowing purple decals and artificial grass that line the edges for a very modern touch. It features a wide open bar that sits in the center of the first floor and a more intimate second floor with larger groups seatings. Happy hour is between 6 to 8 pm daily and features a 50% discount on selected drinks.

Recommendations include the Arroz con Pollo, Above Roll, and Mojito. We’d suggest reserving a table beforehand as Above 11 is a popular location that tends to be fully booked daily.
