Cloud47 rooftop bar

A nice way to enjoy the skyline of Bangkok is to visit one it the many sky bars. Try to get there just before sunset and be amazed of the beauty the view will bring. Most rooftop bars will have a dresscode, so no shorts and flip flops allowed. If your not sure just give them a call before you head up to the place. During the weekends a reservation might be the only way to get in.

Cloud47 at Silom road is one of the best rooftop bars in town. Nested on the top of the United Centre tower it's about a 5 minute walk from BTS Sala Daeng. The entrance is not directly at Silom road and there is no sign pointing out to the entrance. If you stand in front of the United Centre tower just walk a bit to the back into the exit of the car park. Here you'll find some kind of reception with a nice lady helping you getting into the elevator to the 47th floor. No cover charge applied so it can get quite busy even though it can seat up to 500 people. 

Exiting the elevator you walk right up to the large rooftop area. It has a large seating area with a large part covered by some kind of roof. It has a bit of an industrial look with lots of concrete. Besides the open air rooftop bar there is an airconditioned wine bar which looks quite impressive.

The view of Bangkok is amazing even though it's not a 360 degree view. On the left side you can see the Chao Praya river and slowly turning to your right you can see all of North and East Bangkok. When the evening falls all buildings light up and the roads look like a web of light. Coud47 combines great views with live music, no dresscode and affordable prices!!

After you enjoyed the sunset and want some more action, just across the street is Patpong night market and it's infamous nightlife.
