“Great view with hostile staff”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

We really enjoyed the view from the tower. Excellent "kodak"moments. The drinks are very expensive, but there's no other entrance fee. The staff is not very helpful, not to call them hostile. Be there at opening if you have kids with you, otherwise they will send you down the elevator again. Dress properly. Still worth a visit though.

“A have to see”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

What an amazing place, the cocktail bar on the 65th floor is a reall experience, the view is stunning over the city at night, as well as all the towers the dinner boats on the river can bee seen cruising up and down. The cocktails are amazing, if a little expensive. But if your visiting Bangkok this is a must on your list of things to do.

“A very cool place”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Trendy and cool. Go there and look over BKK in style. Can get crowded but grab a drink and enjoy the view.

“Rude and unfriendly staff.”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

We went here for dinner and drinks on one of our last nights in Bangkok, and could not have been more disappointed.

While the view from the rooftop bar was amazing, and should be experienced, the staff were outright rude and snobby.
I could not believe the gall of the hostesses on the 64th floor (bar and restaurant), who seemed to talk down to everyone we got off the lift with.
Having such an attraction feature in a major hollywood movie should make people want to go there and feel welcome, but we found quite the opposite. I could not believe that taking photos on the stairs was prohibited.....

Pick your game up State Tower - we would have spent more money than you could realise if the service was good, but instead left after one drink and decided to go elsewhere for dinner.

“You'd better be well dressed.”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Not allowed access on our first try in the 38 degree heat as we were wearing shorts - smart designer shorts and designer shirts - but not up to their high standards of dress. So, be warned!
