Don't miss these awesome cocktail bars. The hottest places to unwind after dark

For celestial views ascend to Moon Bar

1. Vertigo and Moon Bar

For celestial views ascend to Moon Bar

Our all-time favourite bar

It can be easy to forget to look up in Bangkok with so much going on at ground level, but for one of the most peaceful bars around, you’ll need to head high. Moon Bar at the Banyan Tree serves sophisticated cocktails on the rooftop of this 60 storey hotel with jaw dropping panoramic city views, making it the perfect spot for a sun downer in refined surroundings.

Taste the tantalisingly tropical cocktails

2. The Nest

Taste the tantalisingly tropical cocktails

Another reason to escape from the hubbub below, Nest is a hip urban hangout on the rooftop of Le Fenix Hotel serving everything from cooling beers to tropical cocktails accompanied by tapas or hearty snacks from the grill. Try one of their signature martinis for an ice-cold aperitif to the sounds of DJs and live bands who visit regularly.

Dress to impress

3. Enchanted Bar

Dress to impress

Pulsating in the heart of the up and coming Thong Lor area, Enchanted bar is a magical medley of modern white washed walls and twinkling lights under canvas canopies on a balmy Bangkok rooftop. Join the locals as they unwind after work, and smell the shisha drifting through the air as the party atmosphere builds up to the live band.

Rock out at Bar 23

Indie Rockers are welcome at Bar 23, so they say on the door, and this alternative watering hole certainly entertains the creative types from the city and beyond. Mingle with artists, journalists and photographers in this cosy find while you admire the eclectic décor ranging from art by the owner hung on the walls to Japanese action figures on the bar. There’s no surprise why it has been voted amongst Asia’s coolest bars.

You'll be back for more

5. Hyde and Seek

You'll be back for more

If you like a nibble or two to stop you from falling off your bar seat, newly refurbished Hyde and Seek bar is the spot for you. Offering innovative drinks made from exotic ingredients such as Coconut Pandan Air, a type of cappuchino-style froth domed over a martini glass, this is the kind of all day/all night place you won’t want to leave. The next morning, head back for their infamous brunch, and order the Eggs Benedict complete with lobster hollandaise. Divine.
