From posh spots for sipping wine to inconspicuous corner for a bottle of beer, Bangkok is a barfly’s haven. Though liquor ban starts at 2am, you can find a place to quench your thirst anywhere in Bangkok. Apparently, I saw a multi-cab turned into a mini bar by the street road at 4am in Sukhumvit Soi 11. That tiny bar with wooden chairs and tables, mini disco light, and a chillin’ music serve beer and cocktail drinks…it’s “Whoa!” when I saw it.
So here are some posh places to have some romantic talks while sipping wine or just beer booze while having fun.
Vertigo at 61st floor of the Banyan Tree
Moon Bar is the cocktails area of Vertigo
Latitude Lounge is al fresco bar at 51st floor of Banyan Tree. I love the glass-like chairs and tables with flowing water under the glass-like floor. Do I make sense? Hahahah!
Skybar at Sirocco located at The Dome. This has been tagged as the world’s highest al fresco dining and bar in the world with the view of the whole city of Bangkok and the Chao Phraya river.
The Roof Champagne and Wine Bar located at the 25th floor Siam@Siam Boutique hotel. After your Hot Stone Grill dinner at The Roof Restaurant, you can transfer the wine bar for some great talks while chillin with the view of Bangkok.
Spring Summer at Sukhumvit Soi 49. Set in an old house transformed into a chic restaurant, you can have cocktails in the lawn on big big cushioned pillows.
Tawandaeng Brewery. If you are a “beer person” then this place is for you, I am not but I liked their tangy sweet beer (they have 4 selections) and finished a pitcher. They brew their own beer and best matched with crispy pork knuckles. Tawandaeng is located at Rama III.
Where to party?
Bed Supperclub. This upscale club is located in Sukhumvit Soi 11, this club is divided into 2, the dining and clubbing. Dine in or drink wine on a “breakfast in bed” tray while the DJ spins some chillin’ music. Food selection is divided into a 3-course meal (price: 1500-2000Baht/per head). On the other room, a thumping music welcomes you as you open the door. Do not forget to bring your passport ( I’m just not sure if this applies until now but I remember the last time I went there, I had to go back to the hotel to get my passport–strict with foreigners eh?).
Q Bar. Just another “farang” club in Sukhumvit Soi 11 is where I first met “Jager bomb” some few years ago. By the way, Jager bomb in Bangkok is called “Up all night”.
Flix/Slim in RCA. Gone are the days when I go to “farang” clubs, this is my most frequented club in Bangkok. Most club goers are locals so you’ll get the feel of the real Krungthep atmosphere. I would say Flix/Slim is like Manila’s Ascend and Encore, if you know what I mean. Hahahaha! How to get there? Just hail a cab and tell the driver the magic word “RCA” and they’ll know right away where to bring you.
Shock 39. A newly opened club in New Petchburi Road. Cool music, awesome local DJs, and a rockin’ sound system. I love the cocktails here too. While clubs in Bangkok closes at 2am, Shock 39 is open until very very late.
Muse. Been there only once but I love it when the club is full of locals (for this particular bar– hi-so young locals) so I will definitely go back. Located at Thonglo in Sukhumvit.
Fly, fly! You, Barfly, you!
