The Cielo Sky Bar & Restaurant is surely a strong contender for the best sky bar in Bangkok city. The bar and restaurant is located high up on the 46th floor of the highest building on Sukhumvit road with great food, incredible ambience and without question some of the best rooftop views in the city.
In fact, once you’re up there, you’ll get a full 360-degree view of the city below as you sip your lovingly prepared drinks or enjoy a sumptuous dinner in the rooftop restaurant. The setting at the rooftop is 1960’s sophistication, with a relaxed atmosphere and great service.
You can order from a wide selection of wines, beers and of course, delicious and inventive cocktails such as Mojitos, Pina Coladas and the all-time classic Mai Tai.
There are a wealth of great dining options to choose from, from the traditional to the modern. Enjoy amazing dishes such as the succulent fin de Claire oysters or the super fresh soft shell crab. You can enjoy classic flavours such as pork belly or roasted duck, all served with an Eastern twist.
Or if you just want a few light bites instead of a full four-course meal, why not try the deep fried shrimp dumplings and spicy sweet sauce, the deep-fried vegetables with salted egg yolk and pickled seaweed, or perhaps share a plate of the amazing chicken wings in a Thai herb sauce.
The chef’s special selection includes pomelo salad with grilled tiger prawn and coconut powder or the grilled pork with sunflower sprouts, Thai spicy sauce, and pickled watermelon. The food is a great value and always big on flavour.

There’s also a Secret Zone, a secluded paradise where you can enjoy an intimate and romantic dinner on the rooftop for smaller numbers. The Secret Zone can sit up to 50 people for dinner, 100 people for cocktails or up to 60 people for a buffet.
If you really want to feel the thrill of being up on top of the world, the Skywalk is a great place to visit.
