Update on popular Bangkok rooftop bar and lounge
October 13th, 2014
Rooftop bars continue to be an outstanding draw card in major cities across Asia – with Bangkok’s proliferation of the genre at the forefront of this trend. Among the notable rooftop bars in Bangkok – amBar has become one of the more popular rooftop bars in Bangkok since its opening in late 2010. And although not among the highest, an appealing blend of casual sophistication, laid back atmosphere, and reasonably priced drinks and food, attracts a solid following among knowledgeable locals and visitors to the poolside bar and lounge. Situated on the 8th floor rooftop of the FourPoints by Sheraton Bangkok hotel, in the heart of the vibrant central Sukhumvit area of Bangkok, the fashionable amBar is highly regarded for its well-executed cocktails and Thai -International cuisine, as well as for its monthly parties and special promotions.
amBar shares the outdoor garden space with the dramatic rooftop infinity pool – and offers a variety of settings – with comfortable sofa seating in the lounge area adjacent to the pool, and dining tables set across the timber-decked bar terrace. Expandable awnings above the bar area offer protection in the event of rain – while the lounge areas are completely open to the evening sky offering 360 degree views across the urban skyline.
Open daily from 4:00 pm (weather permitting), amBar offers a pleasant outdoor dining experience, transforming later in the evenings into a vibrant late night destination. Table bookings are recommended for weekend nights – particularly during the popular cooler and dry months of Bangkok’s “winter” season (November – March). Information on the regular parties, special events and drinks promotions are posted to the FourPoints Facebook Page.
