Bangkok is known for having some of the best hangout spots in the world. Better yet, these places serve up fine liquor selections that include gin, rum, whiskey, and vodka. Lovers of the latter can now rejoice with this new rooftop bar sitting high on the 25th floor of the Novotel Sukhumvit 4.
The RedSquare Rooftop Bar not only offers a vast collection of international vodka for us to enjoy, but also an unmatched view of Bangkok city lights that will make any night a memorable one.
The swimming pool area is spread with sun beds and red umbrellas during the day, however, transforms into a cozy, relaxing Vodka Bar from 6 pm onwards.
The overall red color tone was inspired by the RedSquare in Moscow, Russia (which vodka happens to be the national drink as well!) The modern-industrial interior blends with the laid back wooden furniture with a popping red and black tone.
You can choose to take your seat in the pool zone that offers a full view of the concrete jungle in Ploenchit-Wireless area or the much more private bar zone facing Sukhumvit road.
RedSquare prides itself as Bangkok's only Vodka Rooftop Bar with over 30 Vodka labels. The menu concept for the drinks is presented as the Journey Menu.
The aim is to have guests venture and taste vodkas from all continents. During the Journey, you'll get to visit labels from North America, South America, Europe, Africa, and Australia.
Last but not least, a must-try is their creative vodka infusions with flavors like Tom Yam, Chamomile, Chocolate, Thai Spicy herbs among many others as their infusions are always being updated.
The Mojito Skyy (320 Baht), their top-selling cocktail consists of an American vodka-based "Skyy" mixed with soda, mint syrup, cucumber syrup, and strawberry syrup. The concoction gives off an extremely refreshing sweet-sour flavor that's perfect for Bangkok's hot weather.
The Caipirinha (250 THB) uses Brazilian-inspired ingredients and an infused vodka as its primary base with cinnamon and ginger mixed with lemon and syrup. Served in a wooden glass and a paper straw (this is a no-straw venue, or as an alternative, paper straws), this cocktail has a fresh, yet slightly bitter taste, at just the perfect intensity.
The Angel (250 THB) is a Kenyan inspired Vodka Cocktail. Being an original cocktail from Kenya, the RedSquare Mixologist fusioned this cocktail into a vodka base one with, black tea, Guava Juice, Sweetgrass extract, and lime juice. Served in a glass lined with Umeshu powder, this yellow cocktail leads in strong with its sourness.
Other highly recommended signature cocktails include the Siam Sunray (350 THB) made with Thailand's very own Kristall V. The ultimate Martini Twist (350 THB) is made with Ultimate Vodka originating from Poland and is blended with potato, rye, and wheat.
Along with the curated vodka cocktails, the food at RedSquare will satisfy palettes of all tastes. A variety of menu items from Western choices, Tapas, Sliders, cold cuts, Skewers, Pizza and Steak.
