Wanted to have a drink with a view, but left quickly because the overall atmosphere is rather unwelcoming and clearly targeted to profit maximising. Great view, of course, but drinks prices are downright crazy. My advice: do not go

I've never spent that much on a drink before and I've been to some fancy spots in the US. I guess I would have thought it was worth it, if the drink tasted good, but it was just alright. The venue has great views of Bangkok!

I had a fabulous night at Distil, thanks to their amazing mixologist, Franco. He was absolutely delightful to watch! He is so passionate about his work that it's just pure joy on his face. His drinks were amazing and he made it a wonderful experience all around!

Overpriced and overrated. Ridiculously expensive drinks and snacks and very ordinary to rub salt in the wound. Also be aware it gets super windy up there, not pleasant. View is amazing and helps make up for the rest.

I rarely go to this high-end places - I usually find them overwhelming, pricey, unfirendly and not fun. But Distil at Lebua is bit different. Starting from the amazing view - the Big Mango Bangkok is at your feet - to the drinks: Distil deserves spending there an evening. As I am rather a non-percentage drinker, I choose a drink... More

The view is stunning and definitely worth coming for - once! However the poorly made cocktails which are around 700 THB don't want you to stay for another round or come back...ever

The view was nice but the price you pay is extremely high. Shocking cocktails that are poorly made and very expensive. I paid 1,506 baht for two drinks. Don't bother.

For those who gave negative reviews over the drinks in the past, I can understand, especially at what are high prices. Distil's ownership recognized this deficiency and recently brought in Mr. Franco as the new "cocktail chef" to reinvent the menu and Distil's approach to the cocktail. Iit is a tremendous success. My wife and I stopped in as most... More

Decided to visit Skybar on my last night in Bangkok. Arrived for sunset, and Distil was opening at 5, so went there for sunset cocktails. Amazing view. Compared to the rest of Bangkok, drinks are pricey here. But it was a rare splurge, and the view and atmosphere are well worth it. Great hospitality by Noon and the other staff.... More

Description
Every aspect of Distil reflects purity in its most elementary form. On offer is a choice of the most premium and authentic malt whiskies, vodkas and Cognacs.A unique feature of Distil is the Oyster Bar. Pink Diamond Oysters, Exclusive Petrossian Caviar and fresh sushi and sashimi present a delightful selection, along with the finest champagnes and wines from a walk-in wine cellar. Hand-rolled authentic Cuban Cigars are yours to enjoy together with drinks in the adjoining open-air Cigar Terrace. Enjoy the company of the cool set at this hottest chill out spot in Bangkok.The chosen venue for the high flyers and for those of us craving a place to enjoy that one cigar amidst the perfect surrounding, Distil stands out in this aspect alone. Throw in the oysters and caviar, we move up one notch.

Staying in Silom

Neighborhood Profile
Silom
Despite the lack of any major tourist attractions, this lively neighborhood is a favorite of many. Whether it's the (somewhat naughty) nightlife of Soi Patpong, the various handicraft night markets or the plethora of dining options that tickle your fancy, a night out in Silom is a must on every itinerary. It's worth a stop during daytime, too: join office workers on a quest to tasty street food during lunch and shop at Silom Complex for a great mix of Thai and international stores. After a day of strolling around the congested sidewalks, a visit to Silom's Lumphini Park, Bangkok's answer to NYC's Central Park, is a welcome change of scenery.
