Red Sky is a beautiful bar on the 55th floor in the Siam district. It offers you a 360 degree view over Bangkok’s skyline. You can walk around the building in a circle. Red Sky is not the highest sky bar of Bangkok but it has the most central location. It is part of the Centara Grand Hotel which is again part of the shopping mall Central World located in the middle of the shopping area and therefore an excellent combination with a day of shopping in Bangkok!
On the 54th floor is the luxurious Spanish restaurant Uno Mas. And if really want it luxurious, there is also the CRU Champagne Bar on the 59th floor. Although Red Sky can be busy, the atmosphere is relaxed, the service is friendly with the typical Thai smile. The sky is not always Red but sometimes green, blue or purple because the lights are constantly changing. Nice, because this always creates a different ambiance while enjoying your stay at the Red Sky Bar!
A lot of people like to close their last day in Bangkok with a drink in a sky bar, but when it rains on your last day this idea literally falls in the water. This because most open air sky bars are closed when it rains. If you really want to visit a sky bar it is wise to go as soon as the opportunity arises and not postpone it until the last night of your visit to Bangkok or even Thailand.
Prices Red Sky Bar and CRU Champagne Bar
No sky bar is cheap in Bangkok, but the Red Sky Bar is certainly not among the most expensive. A glass of soda costs 180 baht and for a Heineken or Hoegaarden (yes Dutch beer is well represented here) you pay 260 / 320 baht. For a standard cocktail like a Mai Tai or Pina Colada you pay 430 baht. This is excluding 17 percent tax and service costs. There are also several snacks for sale with prices between 300 and 900 baht. In the CRU Champagne Bar on the 59th floor a Champagne cocktail costs around 500 baht and if you really have something to celebrate, such as winning a lottery, you can buy a bottle of champagne from 5,000 baht.
