Char Rooftop Bar Hotel Indigo Bangkok

January 29, 2017 by David Herd

Char Bar

Char Rooftop Bar Hotel Indigo Bangkok Char Rooftop Bar Hotel Indigo Bangkok in 81 Wireless Road is yet another addition to the growing number of rooftop bars in Bangkok. Open at 6 pm in time for the sunset.

Impressive view of the city

Char Rooftop Bar Hotel Indigo Bangkok Bangkok at night is rather stunning, when the lights come on it’s like a fairy land.

Wireless Road

Char Rooftop Bar Hotel Indigo Bangkok Just a seven minute walk down Wireless Road from Ploenchit station.

Location

Char Rooftop Bar Hotel Indigo Bangkok Close to Sukhumvit Road & Ploenchit station & Central Embassy shopping Mall.

The bar offers unlimited choices of alcohol.

Char Rooftop Bar Hotel Indigo Bangkok As you would expect anything your heart desires is here at Char Rooftop Bar Hotel Indigo Bangkok.

Whisky & Bourbon

Buy by the glass or by the bottle. At B850 a glass I may give the Johnny Walker Blue a miss. 🙂

Back to the magnificent skyline

Char Rooftop Bar Hotel Indigo Bangkok I hope I have convinced you at Char Rooftop Bar Hotel Indigo Bangkok is worth a visit. 

How are the beer prices?

Char Rooftop Bar Hotel Indigo Bangkok

Well I’m glad you asked. B160 for an Asahi or Heineken & B150 foe a Singha is quite reasonable for a rooftop bar of this quality.

But my girlfriend drinks cocktails.

Char Rooftop Bar Hotel Indigo Bangkok

You are breaking my heart, either pay the B280 for a Margarita or find a new girlfriend who drinks beer. 🙂

 photo Hotel20Indigo204.jpg Grab a front stalls seat and order some cocktails & snacks, then just sit back and enjoy the stunning view of the Big Mango at night.

Talking about snacks…

Char Rooftop Bar Hotel Indigo Bangkok

There are some interesting choices on the menu at fairly reasonable prices.

Octave Rooftop Lounge Marriott Bangkok

November 2, 2015 by David Herd

 Sunset cocktails Octave Rooftop Lounge

Octave Rooftop Lounge Marriott Bangkok Octave Rooftop Lounge Marriott Bangkok is where I decided to watch the sunset on Halloween night at Octave, which is the roof top bar at the Hotel on 2 Soi Sukhumvit 57.  I actually started the day with breakfast at the JW Marriott at Soi 2 Sukhumvit just near Ploenchit station.

Panoramic view

Octave Rooftop Lounge Marriott Bangkok If you want a front row seat you better arrive early.

Sunset at the Marriott

Octave Rooftop Lounge Marriott Bangkok Of course everyone is waiting for sunset when the city lights come on turning the skyline into a fairyland.

Happy hour cocktails

David Herd Pattaya The drinks are quite expensive at most roof top bars however  here you get two for one cocktails at happy hour before 6pm.

On come the lights

Octave Rooftop Lounge Marriott Bangkok There is nothing nicer than sipping a cocktail while watching the lights come on in this remarkable city of angels.

Sky turning bright blue

Marriott hotel Bangkok This time of the evening is a great time for photos, just turn off your flash and capture the moment. They call it “the blue hour” and the results are often spectacular.

 Sukhumvit Road

Octave Rooftop Lounge Marriott Bangkok Sukhumvit is one of Bangkok’s busiest roads so catch the sky train to Thong Lo station and walk 5 minutes.

It’s Halloween at Octave Rooftop Lounge Marriott Bangkok

Octave Rooftop Lounge Marriott Bangkok Time to go up to the 48th floor for the Haloween party.

 First a stop at 47.

Octave Rooftop Lounge Marriott Bangkok Another great bar to relax with a cocktail or three.

 Could this be the stairway to heaven?

Stairway to heaven?

What a great bar

Marriott Hotel Sukhumvit The party hadn’t quite started when I arrived so I was able to take some nice photos before the crowd arrived.

Changing colours

Octave Rooftop Lounge Marriott Bangkok The fabulous kept changing colours.

Let the games begin at Octave Rooftop Lounge Marriott Bangkok

Time to check out my 2 minute movie.

Ok, so I’m no Steven Spielberg but not a bad job for an amateur. 🙂

Marriott foyer

Octave Rooftop Lounge Marriott Bangkok Marriott hotel Bangkok is quite luxurious as you would expect from this well known world wide chain. They have purchased the Queens Park hotel in Soi 22 and are renovating the 2000 room hotel from top to bottom. They expect to open in 2017 which will certainly add to this chains Bangkok footprint.

For an excellent room rate here just use this link to book and you will be very happy with the result.
