Set on the 40th floor of the Ananara Bangkok Sathorn Hotel, this relatively new, but highly established sky bar with a 360 degree view of Bangkok is worth a visit. The main advantage, its different angle to the usual Sukhumvit sky line and its freshly squeezed drinks. The atmosphere is extremely chilled and not pretentious in any way, making you feel comfortable from the moment you walk in; up those brightly, illuminated stairs.
The bar covers the entirety of the roof, therefore there are plenty of seating options available, and different seating styles. You can sit at high tables over looking the sky line, perch on high stools at the brightly lit central bar, lounge on sofas with dining tables or even chill on saloon style seating over looking the sky line. The clever lay out of Zoom, sets it on many levels allowing for an unobstructed and private view from any area.
The bar is right in the centre of the restaurant, and brightly lit, fitting with the setting of the bar. Staff were friendly, efficient and helpful and the drinks were delicious. The juices were clearly freshly squeezed, and despite having dinner reservations at another place, we stayed for another drink due to the flavours. Bar snacks of nuts were also provided. Their happy hour deal with two for one drinks between 5.30 – 8 pm is an excellent deal. We didn’t dine here, but the menu had some incredible options.
We think there may even be a dance floor and DJ booth, but when we were there no one seemed too keen to show off their moves!
