PENTHOUSE ROOFTOP BAR

The intimate rooftop bar on the roof of Park Hyatt Bangkok

A side benefit during our fantastic stay at the majestic Park Hyatt Bangkok was that we could immediately cross another rooftop bar in Bangkok off our list. We always get very happy with a hotel with a rooftop bar, it’s so easy to get from your own hotel room to the roof in just minutes and enjoy the magical view that this kind of bar offers!

Where in Bangkok is Penthouse Rooftop Bar located?

Penthouse Rooftop Bar is located in the Phloen Chit district, also known as the area where many embassies are located. Opposite the Ploen Chit BTS station, the station where the sky train stops, is the upscale Central Embassy shopping mall. Atop the mall is the phenomenal Park Hyatt Bangkok, which includes Penthouse Rooftop Bar on the 36th floor.

The interior and design of the Penthouse Rooftop Bar

Designed by renowned New York design firm AvroKO, the interior of Penthouse Rooftop Bar in Bangkok is inspired by the opulent penthouses in Chicago and New York. Penthouse Rooftop Bar is part of Penthouse Grill + Bar, found in the upper floors (34th – 36th) of Park Hyatt Bangkok. Each space has a unique design, aiming to create a seamless transition between them.

On the 36th floor is the Penthouse Rooftop Bar. It is a small rooftop bar with a custom-made street lamp-inspired light fixture and a bar made of teak and slate. In addition, tropical plants and small trees in large pots have been placed throughout. There are plenty of seating areas around the various low round tables and here and there are benches where you can sit back and relax.

Breathtaking panoramic views from Penthouse Rooftop Bar

Visitors to Penthouse Rooftop Bar are sure to enjoy a 360-degree view of Bangkok’s skyline. In fact, you can walk all around, offering a fantastic view of Bangkok both during the day and at night. As the sun goes down, the city transforms into a pulsating spectacle of flashing lights and large illuminated advertisements. We love it!

Intimate ambience at Penthouse Rooftop Bar

Penthouse Rooftop Bar is a lot smaller and thus more intimate than many other sky bars located in Bangkok. It is mostly Park Hyatt Bangkok hotel guests who come here for a drink. The visitors are therefore mostly a mix of Thai who are on business and tourists who have chosen an extremely good hotel in Bangkok.

Special Spanish-style cocktails

For us, and many others, a visit to a rooftop bar cannot be without one or more cocktails. The menu features a number of “highlights” and several “Bartender’s Selection cocktails.” Of course, a popular well-known cocktail, mocktail, good glass of wine, soda, water and various types of spirits can also be ordered at Penthouse Rooftop Bar.

We went for the “Penthouse Cocktail Bar Highlights” and first ordered the Catalonia Calling and the House on the Khlong. The House of the Khlong cocktail immediately reminded us of the fun tours we do with The Other Side of Bangkok. Regularly we have cruised past cottages on Bangkok’s tributaries with their amazing tours. The House on the Khlong is prepared with rum from the Isaan enriched with a touch of coconut, butterfly pea syrup, chamuang juice and kaffir lime syrup. The Catalonia Calling, the best seller, is mixed with Xoriguer gin, a rosemary-infused sherry, Patxaran, carrot shrub, syrup of rosemary, lime juice and Arbequina olive oil from Spain.

For our second round, we ordered two more “Penthouse Highlight” cocktails, namely the Reina de la Pasión and the Golden Boy Addiction. This Golden Boy was pretty feisty, wow, what a spicy cocktail that was! The Golden Boy Addiction consists of Bulleit Rye whisky, a special Park Hyatt Bangkok signature coffee liqueur, sweet and dry vermouth, absinthe and homemade coffee bitter. The Reina de la Pasión is made with Don Julio Tequila with a blend of the mate plant, Fernet Branca liqueur, chimichurri syrup, Cointreau, aloe vera and lime juice. A complex, but delicious cocktail.

Out of nowhere, we got another treat, a kind of Spanish delicacy, which reminded us of a sweet specialty we once had in Mallorca. A kind of doughnut filled with a delicious lumpy vanilla/hazelnut cream. With that, another cocktail was placed on the table, The First Step, to end our evening. This delicious cocktail is made with a bourbon (whisky) infused with tonka beans, egg white foam, corn syrup and grapefruit liqueur/juice. Super tasty!!

All the cocktails we tasted were expertly prepared, looked beautiful and tasted heavenly! It was another exceptionally good evening during our stay at Park Hyatt Bangkok. The rooftop of this majestic hotel is also a very good place to be!

Super service (as we are used to from Park Hyatt Bangkok)

Finally, the service, which is identical throughout Park Hyatt Bangkok, including at Penthouse Rooftop Bar, is exceptionally good. We are used to high quality service and know that hospitality is an important aspect for a great stay at a hotel or resort. The staff at Park Hyatt Bangkok is professional without coming across as excessive. They are themselves and take a genuine interest in their guests. A big 10 for Park Hyatt Bangkok’s service!
