Iconic rooftop bar marks 20 years as a premium nightlife destination in Bangkokmoon bar bangkok

May 6th, 2022


Since its opening in early 2002, Moon Bar and Vertigo restaurant have set the standard for rooftop drinks and dining in Bangkok. Located on the 61/F rooftop of Banyan Tree Bangkok on what was originally a helipad, Moon Bar has been acclaimed globally as one of the world’s iconic rooftop bars – and has become a must-visit destination for visitors to Bangkok.

Recently refurbished with new sleek decor, Moon Bar and Vertigo offer guests a variety of experiences with its Vertigo dining courtyard, private party lounge, and stand-alone Moon Bar. 

Constructed on elevated open-air platforms to optimize panoramic 360-degree views across Bangkok’s dramatic skyline – taking in famous landmarks such as the Grand Palace, Royal Chapel, Chao Phraya River, Wat Pho Temple, National Museum, and the Emerald Buddha. And of course, the spectacular Bangkok sunsets are not to be missed.

Complementing the breathtaking views, the bar menu offers an extensive selection of premium drinks including signature and classic cocktails, champagne, wines, craft beers on tap, and refreshing fruit drink concoctions.

Arriving at the bar before sunset is recommended – and bookings are always a good idea.
