    First time I went to LOS we stayed for our first night as a stop over to Patong at the Grand China Princess Hotel in Chinatown. It had a roof top bar with a pool right on the edge of the building. Talk about vertigo , yikes.
    But the thing I found the weirdest was one floor down from the rooftop was a restaurant that had a Rotating floor. So as you had dinner or drinks you would get a great view of most of Bangkok.
    Anyone stayed there?

    One of the most in rooftop bars currently in Bangkok is the rooftop bar at Marriott Suk 57
    I stayed there last year and it's the real deal

    Not really touristy, more Thais and 30ish expats

    One level is really big with seating and the top level is where the DJ is.....can get loud though.

    Another favorite of mine, although not a rooftop bar but all open on thr window side is

    Long Table
    Great place to go with your gf.....good tapas type dishes. Chill music and a good crowd, although a bit youngish

    Mrs M and I sat in the right hand corner nearest the camera last March .... a bit near the sound systems speakers for my liking I recall .... have been to that bar twice now, would go again and recommend it for the view but whilst I can accept that the drink prices in such a place will be high, there is no excuse for those drinks to be rubbish as well .... nice place to visit but I wouldn't want to drink there all night ....

    My favourite atm is Above 11....top floor of Fraser Suites on Soi 11...it is cool rather than touristy and has a DJ who plays to the crowd with nice laid back stuff earlier on building up to some more dancey but not deafening stuff later on in the evening...the food is Peruvian/Japanese also very cool...pricing is way better than the usual rooftop tourist traps and the crowd is much younger, hipper and more Thai than you usually find at these joints....iirc it is run by the (former) Bed/Supper group guys....my all time favourite joint in BKK..I really miss it along with Q Bar

    It comes in at #6 on the OPs Article/link........ Above Eleven Rooftop Bar - Bangkok.com Magazine

    Unfortunately Nest and its hotel Le Fenix have had their day....much groovier places have come along and usurped them..they are way overdue for an expensive refurb

    I'd still recommend it and say go even if you have to pay for the water. It is still the Marriott so the service is excellent and certainly not pushy so even if the mixed drinks are so-so average and overpriced, get a bottled beer for you and a water for her and admire the view.

    Been to Zeppelin last year with a lady friend. The view is good, the prices are premium, getting my friend to walk over the glass floor was impossible, going by taxi from Soi 6 was a huge mistake.

    Ozzy, stayed at the Pullman G in Silom when we did the trip to Hua Hin late last year for a couple of nights, and there is a great bar up on the 37th floor. Has a smallish outside area where you can eat and drink plus huge bar and eating area inside. City Views down to the river from the outside area,. but better views from the window tables inside.
    Best Wine Bar In Bangkok - Scarlett Wine Bar & Restaurant

    The food that we had there was really good as they have an extensive type of Tapas style menu along with some really good quality cold meat cuts and some excelent cheeses. Not cheap, but it is my type of food, so no problem for me with the type of menu that had there.

    I was very suprised to see so many Thai's (young & older) getting stuck into the platter boards of cold meat/cheeses, it was something that I would not have expected to see.
    To me the bar had a great vibe, and even if I did not stay at that hotel again, I would pay the bar a vist as I really enjoyed it

    If anyone ever thinks of staying there, it is well worth paying a bit extra and getting the Executive Package.
    On top of the room, you get private check-in, Breakfast in the Executive lounge that is served to the table, access to the Executive Lounge all day, and at the end of a hard day, 2 hours of beautiful complementary Canapes/Cheese, hot snacks etc as well free beer wine & ****tails.

    Has anyone been to the number two on the top 20 list

    Sky Bar Rooftop at Lebua

    its close to my hotel so works well,

    Not really interested in the food its more of a place to relax taking in the view for a drink or two before heading out. As silly as it may sound to some we don't really like to eat at fancy places much rather plastic chairs, markets and bbq places.

    I will go to Above11, I got a feeling I went before a few years back not sure.

    ^ Thats about what I was guessing, But you would not want to go on a bender at those prices . Nearly $ 9.00 a beer. But Im not surprised either.
