Located along the Chao Phray River in Bangkok, Sirocco is the world’s largest open-air restaurant and bar. High up on the 63rd floor of the State Tower, the second tallest building in Thailand, the views are utterly amazing. It’s unquestionably one of Bangkok’s most iconic venues and you may even recall seeing it in the film ‘Hangover 2’. The bar, perched 247 meters from the world below, changes colors every 90 seconds, providing a soothing ambiance at this “most stunning rooftop bar you’ll ever see” (New York Times).
From 6pm to 1am daily, talented Mixologist serve up a multitude of creative signature libations, including the popular Hangovertini. Pair your choice with a beautiful sunset and you’ve got the makings of an unforgettable date night. I wonder how many one-kneed proposals happen here every week?
While the Sky Bar’s famous views undoubtedly draws crowds, don’t forget that the restaurant, Sirocco, also has those same breathtaking views and boasts an authentic Mediterranean menu. Recently named One of Thailand’s Best Restaurants, Sirocco is also the only restaurant in all of Thailand to receive a perfect 10 score in 2014 by the Thailand Tatler. The menu at the highest al fresco restaurant in the world was created to feature fresh ingredients from markets across the world. If you want to really get the full experience, try the Chef’s Tasting Menu – featuring a seven course meal hand designed by Chef Gonzalo Ruiz. Other options are the Heritage Menu; Oysters and Caviar Selections; or an A La Carte Menu of starters, main courses and desserts.
Chef Gonzalo has been mastering the culinary arts since the age of six and has worked for luxury Mediterranean beach hotels, cafés, bistros, brasseries and Michelin-starred restaurants, including a stint as Head Chef de Partie at the grand five-star Hotel Majestic in Barcelona.
In addition to 270 degree views of Bangkok, each night the Sirocco and Sky Bar feature a live band to accompany it’s culinary experience.
It’s important to note that Sirocco works to keep an intimate atmosphere and does not crowd the space with tables so seating is limited. It’s highly recommended that you reserve a table at least one week in advance. Sirocco also has a Smart Casual Dress Code so leave your beach digs and flip flops at home.
