If you want to experience the feeling of being on top the world with a cocktail in your hand, this is the place to go..
An amazing view over the city and no need to hike a mountain to be able to be here. Not bad right? All you need to do is go up 61 floors up in the sky and you’ll find yourself in one of the best bars in the world: a place surrounded by the moon, the starts and and a blue glowy light.
When you get here you get a menu that lights up as soon as you open it:
You can enjoy this moment of looking at the menu for a while, since there are so many choices there is just no way you can decide in 2 minutes. Sure, this is coming from a person who can spend an hour in the supermarket and ages to decide what to eat a restaurant.. But trust me, it’s simply impossible!
After a while I decided it was time, this cocktail was finally gonna be ordered! When it got to me it was kinda bubbling and steaming in the glass below the cocktail and ‘smoke’ was coming out. I still don’t really know what happened, but hey, everything to make it look interesting right? 🙂
Honestly, this is not the place to stay and drink the whole night, unless you want to spend lots of money. It’s definitely high priced for Bangkok standards, but obviously… with this view.. it’s definitely worth it to visit.
I felt slightly sad leaving this place and going back to the ‘normal’ world on the ground..
The Moon Bar is located on top of the Banyan Tree Hotel in ‘Sathon’ area of Bangkok. If you ever visit Bangkok and want to enjoy the 360 degrees view of the city, go here:
21 Sathorn Road (MRT Lumphini)
It’s open from 5pm so you can go watch the sunset too! Just make sure to dress up for the occasion, no flip-flops or shorts allowed! For more info, check out their website here.
