Pattaya sunset 

Hilton Pattaya spectacular Sky Bar Hilton Pattaya spectacular Sky Bar is the perfect place to watch the sunset. Happy hour is from 5 to 7 pm offering a range of cocktails for only B330 for two or around $9 usd.

Big crowd

Hilton Pattaya spectacular Sky Bar Three reasons I guess, it’s happy hour, it’h high season in January & i’ts an amazing view of Pattaya.

Hole in the roof to watch the stars.

From a different aspect

Hilton Pattaya spectacular Sky Bar All through the Hilton the design & architecture is fabulous.

Electric blue mini bar

Looking west

Hilton Pattaya spectacular Sky Bar A few minutes after sunset the view is breathtaking looking towards Koh Larn island.

Full house

Hilton Pattaya spectacular Sky Bar It’s certainly a good idea to book a table in the high season.

 Aussies in paradise

Hilton Pattaya spectacular Sky Bar Wayne Croker with the rabbit ears is from Brisbane enjoying a short golfing holiday in Pattaya, & Hamish Elton lives & works from his home office on Pratumnak Hill. Here is the view Hamish has when laying by his pool. 🙂

Brewski Sky Bar Radisson Blu Bangkok

December 30, 2016 by David Herd

30 minutes before sunset

Brewski Sky Bar Radisson Blu Bangkok Brewski Sky Bar Radisson Blu Bangkok on Sukhumvit Road near Soi 25 claim to be the only rooftop craft beer bar in Bangkok. I’m not into craft beers however an Asahi bottle was reasonably prices at B160, or $4.50 USD.

Brewski Sky Bar Radisson Blu Bangkok

 photo Brewskis Raddison 5.jpg To state the obvious when visiting Bangkok Sky Bars it’s always best to arrive before sunset to get the benefit of seeing the city in day light, dusk & night.

Brewski Sky Bar Radisson Blu Bangkok

Brewski Sky Bar Radisson Blu Bangkok The crowd was building up, mainly Thai locals.

Abandoned building

Brewski Sky Bar Radisson Blu Bangkok I’m guessing this abandoned has bees sitting here for at least 10 to 15 years.

 Two Pattaya reprobates

Cielo Sky Bar is another spectacular venue to add to the many  “must do” places to visit in this city. Located between Sukhumvit 69 & 71 only five minutes walk from Phra Khanong BTS station.

City lights are coming on

Brewski Sky Bar Radisson Blu Bangkok A beautiful sight watching the city lights come on.

My favourite time of the day

Brewski Sky Bar Radisson Blu Bangkok There must be at least 25 sky bars in Bangkok, more than any other city I have been to.

Red Sky Bar Central World offers another breathtaking view of this wonderful city. Perched high on the 56th floor at Centara Grand Hotel above Central World shopping Mall.

 Wonderful sunset from Brewski

Brewski Sky Bar Radisson Blu Bangkok I must confess I’m a sucker for a sunset, check out THIS LINK for some great Pattaya sunsets.

Terminal 21 & Asoke station

  The Long Table sky bar is located on the 25th floor of the Colomn serviced apartments in Soi 16 Asoke.

Thanks for visiting my Brewski Sky Bar Radisson Blu Bangkok photo blog.

When I’m in Bangkok I like to stay in Sukhumvit Soi 11, here is an excellent budget hotel, if you USE THIS LINK you will get a great rate of around B1100 per night, or $30 USD.

Cielo Sky Bar Restaurant Bangkok

December 15, 2016 by David Herd

46th level Sky Walk Condominium

Cielo Sky Bar Restaurant Bangkok Cielo Sky Bar Restaurant Bangkok is another spectacular venue to add to the many other “must do” places to visit in this great city. Located between Sukhumvit 69 & 71 only
five minutes walk from Phra Khanong BTS station.

Cielo Sky Bar Restaurant Bangkok

Cielo Sky Bar Restaurant Bangkok

As usual with Bangkok Sky Bars it’s always best to arrive before sunset to get the benefit of seeing the city in day light, dusk & night.

Who is this guy?

Cielo Sky Bar Restaurant Bangkok

He greets you as you arrive at Sky Walk condominium, he could almost be saying “take me to your leader”. 🙂 

Here we are at the bar

Cielo Sky Bar Restaurant Bangkok If you fancy a cocktail Pina Colada, Mojito or Mai Tais are around 200-250 Baht.

OK, back to the wonderful view

Cielo Sky Bar Restaurant Bangkok The late afternoon traffic is starting to build up. 

Open from 6 pm to 1.30 am.

Cielo Sky Bar Restaurant Bangkok Compared to many of the other Bangkok Sky bars drink and food prices are quiet reasonable starting at B120 for a Singha beer.

The city lights are coming on

Cielo Sky Bar Restaurant Bangkok In my opinion enjoying a cold beer or a Margarita & watching the city lights come on in Bangkok is the perfect way to spend an evening.

Pra Khanong district

Cielo Sky Bar Restaurant Bangkok Pra Khanong district is a middle class residential area rather than a commercial district. 

Only 12 minutes by Sky Train from Nana.

Cielo Sky Bar Restaurant Bangkok I usually stay in Soi 11 Nana and it only takes 12 minutes by Sky Train to get to Pra Khanong station. Then take exit 3 and walk 5 minutes along Sukhumvit to the Sky Walk Condo.

 As you can see the restaurant is stunning

Cielo Sky Bar Restaurant Bangkok A small beautifully designed intimate room with chandeliers to add to the opulence.

Well worth a visit

Cielo Sky Bar Restaurant Bangkok On this occasion I dined elsewhere however I certainly will return to Cielo try out the intimate restaurant.

Casa Teo

Cielo Sky Bar Restaurant Bangkok This restaurant looks very interesting indeed, it’s located at the front of the Sky Walk condo. Check them out on Facebook. 

Lovely colourful fountain.

Cielo Sky Bar Restaurant Bangkok Also located in the forecourt of the Sky Walk condo, thanks for visiting my Cielo Sky Bar Restaurant Bangkok photo blog.

Long Table sky bar Bangkok

May 17, 2016 by David Herd

Great Bangkok bar

Long Table sky bar Bangkok Long Table sky bar Bangkok is located on the 25th floor of the Colomn serviced apartments in Soi 16 Asoke. Walk in the door and this is the fabulous view of Bangkok. Obviously not as high as many of the Bangkok sky bars but still offers an incredible view of this great city. Photo credit Asia Web Direct.

Use THIS LINK for a great rate of around $80 USD + tax for a 62 M2 serviced apartment.

Grab a seat beside the pool

Long Table sky bar Bangkok Happy hour is 5 pm to 7 pm, you get 2 for 1 drinks so two cold beers will only cost you B210.

 The Sheraton and Terminal 21.

Looking towards Sathon.

Even though it is only the 25th floor the view is exceptional.

Terminal 21

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.

Marriott Susunset          Marriott Sukhumvit          Marriott hotel Bangkok

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

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.
