Bangkok Riverside Rooftop Restaurants & Bars
Bangkok has over 60 rooftop bars, each stunning in their own way. But there is something unique about riverside rooftop bars and restaurants. They offer incredible riverside views, fresh breeze and incredible ambiance.
Let’s look at some of the best Bangkok riverside rooftop bars and restaurants that will not only leave you in awe but also satisfy those wine and dine cravings.
The Deck by Arun Residence
The Deck by Arun Residence is one of Bangkok’s most popular dining spots next to the Chao Phraya river.
Firstly, it is one of very few that have a direct view of the magnificent Wat Arun that shimmers against the sun and reflection of the river.
The relaxed and intimate ambiance, delicious Thai and international cuisine as well as an amazing customer service are a few other reasons it is highly revered as an excellent riverside rooftop restaurant.
Make sure you come at sunset for a romantic dinner or at night with friends and family.
View ARUN Restaurant & Bar
Just around the corner from The Deck is another rooftop bar that is slightly on a higher floor and with an undisturbed panoramic view of the Chao Phraya River and the beautiful Wat Arun.
It is a minimalistic restaurant and bar but with chic and stylish decor, creating a relaxed atmosphere for couples, family and friends.
The food consists of creative Thai cuisine that is both delicious and visually appealing. To wash it down, View Arun offers uniquely crafted signature cocktails made by specialist mixologists. Try their Message From a River as you look out on to the Chao Phraya river and the scenic views.
River Vibe Bar & Restaurant
This is one of our favorite riverside bars by far. For starters, it has the best panoramic views of the Chao Phraya River and it’s only on the 7th floor of the River View Residence.
Here you can see the river curve and wrap around, which creates amazing view and photo opportunities.
The food and drinks are also the highlight at this restaurant and bar. It offers a wide range of Thai and international dishes, including seafood, meat, and vegetarian options at reasonable prices.
River Vibe Bar & Restaurant is a great spot to enjoy delicious food, scenic views, and live music in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. It is excellent for groups of friends or even a romantic date.
342 Rooftop Bar
While there are dozens of bars on the east side of the Chao Phraya River, 342 is one of very few that lies on the west side. This means the views consist of tall buildings and Bangkok’s downtown skyline.
The bar itself is quaint and feels like a local oasis, away from the city’s hustle and bustle.
342 rooftop bar offers a wide selection of cocktails, beers, and wines, as well as non-alcoholic beverages. The drinks are well-crafted and reasonably priced.
While there are decent food and snacks available at 342 bar, the highlight of this place is definitely the drinks, view and ambiance.
They also feature live music performances, creating a lively atmosphere.
Three Sixty Lounge
Three Sixty Lounge is not only considered one of the best riverside rooftop bars, but actually it is one of the top rooftop bars in Bangkok. Period.
Perched high up on the 32nd floor of the Millennium Hilton, 360 Bar towers over other riverside restaurants and bars, allowing the ultimate 360 degree panoramic views along the Chao Phraya river and beyond.
The food and drinks are also top notch here.
It is the perfect setting to relax, unwind, dine and sip on delicious cocktails or beer.
If you are looking to impress your friends, coworkers or a date, this is the place to go.
Seen Restaurant & Bar
If we were to save the best for last, there is no other than Seen Restaurant and bar at the Avani riverside hotel.
This spot exudes sophistication and magnificence in every single way, from the incredible river and city views to ambiance and service to the food and drinks.
Seen is the place to see and to be seen as it attracts some of the top echelon and socialites from Bangkok and around the world.
We hope you have a good time checking out some of these riverside bars and restaurants on your next visit to Bangkok.
