To some, the mention of Bangkok at night leads to thoughts of touristy dinner shows and adult entertainment. But in recent years, forward-thinking owners and operators have modernized nightlife in Thailand’s largest city across various categories.
Take your nighttime fun in the sprawling metropolis to a higher level with a visit to the Tower Club at lebua, home to the vertigo-inducing Sky Bar. From an open-air perch 63 stories above Bangkok, the bar provides a show-stopping place to enjoy craft cocktails inspired by the solar system.
For a sexy speakeasy experience, head to the Thonglor neighborhood, where Rabbit Hole lurks behind an unassuming wooden door. The veteran bartenders mix classic drinks featuring daring twists and creative infusions.
Vesper—one of the Silom district’s coolest places for a nighttime rendezvous—provides a stage for Supawit “Palm” Muttarattana’s modern art-inspired cocktails. A mix of stylishly dressed locals flock to the green-marble bar while enjoying drinks such as the Flower Carrier (gin, rum, chardonnay, lemon, osmanthus, and bitters), inspired by the 1935 Diego Rivera painting of the same name.
