On a recent trip to Bangkok my husband and I visited both Redsky bar on the 55th floor of the Centara Centralworld hotel, and also the Sky Bar on the 63th floor of the Lebua State hotel (Famous due to the Hangover 2 Movie). Overall we actually preferred this bar at the Centara due to the less crowds, relaxed atmosphere and cheaper prices.
Located in the central shopping district of Bangkok we arrived just after 5pm when the bar opened. There is a happy hour between 5-7pm where you get the second same drink for free. Although they do not offer cocktails as part of this deal we found the drinks to be good value for the location and views. My husband had a Gin & Tonic which was B300 (around £6.50) but for this he got 2 drinks as the second was free. I only had a fresh coconut juice which was B180 (around £4), but the same offer applied.
We sat here on the chilled out sofa's for over 2 hours enjoying the sunset views. The service was good and the furniture is a little worn but this doesnt matter. We didnt find it crowded at all but nearer to 7pm more people started to arrive so it is recommended to visit early to get a good spot. Please note that at the Skybar at Lebua State tower, there are no seats for guests having a drink. We visited the Lebua the second night and found it very expensive and full of tourists, we also felt extremely rused in comparison to the Centara where we were left to relax.
Overall, the views are more spectacular at the Lebua as it overlooks the river but this hotel rooftop bar was perfect for us all round and to be honest we will return here on our next visit to Bangkok.
