Located at the 61st floor of the luxurious Banyan Tree Hotel, Vertigo Moon Bar is the perfect spot for sunset lovers looking for a classy and sophisticated ambiance. The open-air bar offers a dazzling 360 degrees views over the Bangkokian skyline, whilst the remarkable height of the venue allows you to distance yourself from the incessant clamour of the metropolis.
The bar has a great selection of drinks sure to delight any taste and I have to say that our Guava juices were good enough, even though my attention was so completely drawn by the show-stealing panorama that I didn’t even finish half of it. A must try for the cocktail fans seems to be the “Vertigo Sunset” – a mix of Malibu, pineapple juice, cranberry juice, lime juice ( Baht 380/ 10 euros ) or one of the New Inspirations of Mixology, the Orange Oasis – Rum, D.O.M Benedictine, Orange, Ginger Ale ( same price ).
The staff is razor-sharp and used to the photo mania that seizes all ( and I repeat ALL ) the clients and even offer their services as professional photographers, taking multiple pictures in different angles and poses 😀
The best time to go is around 5:30 pm as after that it becomes pretty crowded and the only available seats are in the restaurant right below the bar platform ( which doesn’t sound so bad after all ). The dress code is smart casual so it would be better to leave your flip-flops at home.
The Vertigo Moon Bar is located in the business and embassy district of Bangkok, close to the Australian Embassy and Lumphini Park.
