Bangkok has more rooftop bars than any other city in the world. They have done a really good job of allowing areas on the roofs to the tallest buildings to be dedicated to bars and restaurants. Bangkok has an amazing skyline and some amazing sunsets, so what better place to sit back with a cold drink and enjoy the views! Check out the best rooftop bars in Bangkok (this is only a small amount of the total amount of bars)
Vertigo Grill and Moon Bar are located on the roof of the Banyan Trees Hotel in the Sathorn business district of Bangkok. Vertigo Grill is a very classy restaurant. You can just go for drinks at the Moon Bar which takes up the upper section of the rooft, right at the far end which is the best part of the roof to watch the sunset over Bangkok
I highly recommend you go for the full dining experience at Vertigo Grill. The service is very impressive and the food delightful. Book in for around 6pm, get there early for a drink at the bar, watch the sunset, then settle in for some awesome food.
