I went during the day, not realizing that it wasn't open....but the manager very kindly let me in to take a photo. Really spectacular view, but it's expensive as it's a trendy exclusive bar.

This was a must do especially if you love the hangover films. However be aware of the dress code and no backpack rules. Also drinks cost a fortune and the staff stand around and hustle you away from the steps like security guards . If the staff calmed done and were more friendly I would have considered staying at this... More

This outdoor & indoor attraction has it all! A drinks bar with great service and a restaurant (booking essential) all with the most beautiful view across the city. Drinks and food are expensive, but for the experience worth it, even if you only do it once in a lifetime. To be outside at this height is an incredible experience.

The wide-open Bangkok City view at a high elevation is a fantastic sight for visitors specially in the evening when the lights are turn on. The State Tower is truly a landmark as a scenic viewpoint of Bangkok. The perception of Bangkok from the street level and the actual scene perceived at the State Tower's elevation is vastly different. A... More

We went to the top and saw the wonderful view, and afterwards, decided to have a drink at the poolside bar. Expensive, but so elegant. Wonderful staff and some many nice touches. It was pleasant to relax there after a warm day of sight seeing.

What an excellent view of Bangkok from up there - particularly at night. However, it doesn't really merit the £60 plus for five drinks in the Sky Bar. The restaurant is also extortionately expensive. Pity, it seems like the owners are just trying to capitalise on what is essentially a tourist trap.

This place is cool, you can see Bangkok view panorama, food was ok and really expensive but drink was acceptable not really expensive and tasteless. If you wanna enjoy view in the night from Bangkok, try sky bar, if you wanna try luxury life try Sirocco or another restaurant. Service was fine not special (I have better experience better service... More

Chic n beautiful place. The highest place in Thailand. Glamorous drinks. Try the different gin tonics n the "Lychee Refresher" (non alcoholic) , be sure you arrive before the sunset, the best time of the day to be there. Be aware that can be overcrowded of tourist sometimes, isn't chairs to sit down so, a good idea is to reserve... More

The building is a very clean, the staff are very polite an speak English well. Drinks are pricey.. But then again you are on top of a sky scraper with an open... More
