Closer to the Stars: the best restaurants and bars of Bangkok roofs
The fact that our brother served as Bangkok, Thais called Krung Thep, or City of Angels. In this cheerful nation has its risky traits - and not just riding a motorcycle taxi during rush hour. If you wish to have a meal or a drink came after the clock struck midnight, you need to look up. Roofs local skyscrapers are not idle idle: what is not the place for a bar, restaurant, lounge café or dance floor?
Moon Bar, Banyan Tree Bangkok
Purpose: to observe the stars
Address: 21/100 South Sathon Road
Phone: +66 26791200 or 1800 050 019 (free)
The Moon Bar can zackochit on a glass of wine on the 60th floor, and at the same time to look at the stars in the telescope mounted inside. The bar is open from 17:00 to 1:00 and is considered one of the most romantically-minded places in Bangkok. By the appearance of the visitors here are criticized not like men in sandals and shorts, and women in open vests can offer a handkerchief to cover her shoulders. If the situation with the dress code seems too manic, you can go down to 9 floors down. Latitude Lounge & Bar works the same hours as the garment guests here are more democratic.
Sky Bar and Breeze
Purpose: Cocktails at sunset
Address: 1055 Silom Road
Phone: +66 26249999
The notion of life Bangkok roofs will be incomplete if you do not visit the restaurants and bars in the dome, "Loeb" hotel on Silom Road. The most famous of those places - Sirocco - located on the 63 floor and is considered the highest located restaurant space in the world. On the same floor settled Sky Bar. It opened vistas to the city at night (the bar is open until the morning) and the Chao Phraya River. However, the absence of pre-booking tables makes sure guarantee of a good night. If you can not get to the Sky Bar and have no objection to marine reptiles, can be wrapped in a neighboring Breeze.
It is necessary to know that at the entrance to the tower, "Loeb" has a strict dress code: men must be in closed shoes - no sandals or flip-flops, however Italian and expensive they may be. style police catches offenders in elevators and sends them to the boring bar in the lobby.
The Long Table
Purpose: chic on Bond
Address: 48 Column Tower, Sukhumvit Soi 16
Phone: +66 23 022 55 79
The most original thing in the Long Table - actual namesake, very long low table with 70 seats. He crosses horizontally all the space of the restaurant and bar, which protrudes from the building at 25 floors. The rest of the interior is entirely in glossy white skin and low glass tables. For this table, certainly bent legs, I want to take a glass of ice-cold mojito and share experiences from the previous day. Wine room seem stuck at every turn and often empty. Those who are uncomfortable to conduct solo dialogues in empty space, it is better to choose a table on the veranda. Just need to book in advance as tables are in dire shortage.
Purpose: Budget river views
Address: Level 5, River City Complex, 23 Trok Rongnamkhaeng, Silom
Phone: +66 22364535
The shopping center is the usual food court, but it is better when crawling antique shops look up. From the roof of River City Mall is possible to observe the dense traffic on the Chao Phraya river brown water while sitting in the garden and turn a hunk of meat on a personal desktop grill.

The bar is located on the roof of a 17-storey department store Zen. Visit here - it's not just: prihoroshitsya advised not to fall face in the dirt.

Panoramic Bar provides a 360 degree view and the strongest impression at sunset. Climbing here is better by a glass elevator inside the store (open until 22:00), the bar itself is open from 17:30 to midnight.
