Cocktail Price: $24 USD
Vertigo & Moon Bar is perched on the 61st floor of the Banyan Tree Hotel. It is the ultimate rooftop bar in Bangkok, and amongst the best high-class bars in the world.
As expected, the views are spectacular and overlook the city of Bangkok from the sky.
Entry is free, but purchasing anything here is extremely expensive. We purchased a couple of cocktails here for about $24 USD, making them the most expensive cocktail we’ve ever bought. Sure, they were perfect. But we were absolutely paying for the view.
Interestingly, we did see a number of people come up for photos and leave without purchasing anything. If we didn’t manage to get a table we might have done the same. So not being able to afford a $24 cocktail isn’t an excuse, make your way up here for a few pics then sneak away.
If you are here for a fancy tipple (once a drink costs over $20 it’s no longer just a ‘drink’), then come early. They open at 5pm (with no entrance fee), we got there at 5.30pm and were lucky to get the last table. Fortunately, if you do get a table it comes with bar snacks – the best bar snacks we’ve ever eaten.
The restaurant opens a bit later at 6pm. Book a table and I’m sure it will be one of the most impressive meals you’ve ever eaten. Otherwise, come by before 6pm and the security guard may let you walk through the restaurant to take some photos at the other end of the rooftop.
What We Loved?
The views here are spectacular. It’s not as busy as Lebua making it our first pick for the best rooftop bar in Bangkok.
