VANILLA SKY BAR - FREE AS A BIRD
Planning to visit the luxury shopping mall Emporium or EmQuartier? Or are you just looking for a nice sky bar in the middle of Bangkok’s EM District? Then don’t forget to end the day at Vanilla Sky Bar! This rooftop bar opened in 2017 and offers its guests a beautiful 360-degree view of the city. The great thing about Vanilla Sky Bar is that this sky bar can be combined with another sky bar in the same building. You can read more about this and what you can eat/drink there further on in this article.
In some pictures you can still see the old floor of this sky bar. Today, the floor is covered with green artificial grass.
Where in Bangkok is Vanilla Sky Bar located?
Vanilla Sky Bar is located on the roof of the SKYVIEW Hotel Bangkok. This fantastic hotel is located in the middle of the trendy EM District, to be more precise on Sukhumvit Soi 24. Almost next to the hotel there are two modern shopping malls where numerous luxury stores (Emporium and EmQuartier) are located. Opposite the hotel is a small park, the Benjasiri Park.
From SKYVIEW Hotel Bangkok, you can get to the Phrom Phong BTS Station (sky train) in less than a five-minute walk. This makes Vanilla Sky Bar an easy to visit sky bar in Bangkok. Once inside, you pass through the hotel lobby after which you take a separate elevator that takes you to the 35th floor. After that you only need to take a small flight of stairs.
SKYVIEW Hotel Bangkok
In July 2022 we slept at the SKYVIEW Hotel Bangkok. An amazing accommodation, perfect as a base to discover Bangkok. Do you want to know how we liked it? Read our extensive review about SKYVIEW Hotel Bangkok.
Outside the roof terrace of Vanilla Sky Bar in Bangkok
After the stairs to the 35th floor, you arrive on the roof terrace with a bright green artificial grass floor. We had not seen this before during a visit to one of the many sky bars in Bangkok that we have now visited. We were kindly welcomed by a lady and gentleman who offered us a nice seat with a view.

Vanilla Sky Bar’s rooftop patio can accommodate about 60 guests, who can take seats on stylistic lounge sofas and high tables with comfortable bar stools. Like us, sit up high at the edge of the patio. Here the view of Bangkok is super beautiful , especially during sunset.
On the terrace is a large bar where delicious cocktails and other drinks are served. Next to the bar you will find the DJ booth where an (inter)national DJ regularly mixes nice records! Most of the music played here is electronic and lounge.

The nice thing about Vanilla Sky Bar is that this rooftop bar offers a 360 degree view over Bangkok, where you look out over the Sukhumvit and Phrom Phong area. For example, you can see the adjacent Benjasiri Park, but also the nearby luxury shopping centers Emporium and EmQuartier.
Great cocktails en other beverages at Vanilla Sky Bar
Vanilla Sky Bar’s cocktail menu consists of about 20 cocktails, eight of which are signature cocktails. The remaining cocktails are the well-known classic cocktails such as the well-known Mojito, Caipirinha, Negroni, Long Island Ice Tea and Piña Colada. Of course, we went for the signatures on the drink menu. Among others, we ordered the Vanilla Sky with gin, vanilla syrup, lime and pineapple juice and the Yorsang with vodka, lychee, guava, grenadine and lime juice.
In addition to cocktails, there are also numerous types (and brands) of spirits available, as well as wines and beer, of course. If you prefer to order something without alcohol then a fruit shake, soda, water or mocktail can be ordered. At Vanilla Sky Bar you can choose from three different mocktails, the Little Queen, Apple Mint and Lychee Soda.

It’s a good to be at Vanilla Sky Bar! Despite the fact that we were only here for a short time, we enjoyed the pleasant ambiance and good cocktails. It is truly a party to be a guest at Vanilla Sky!
The menu at Vanilla Sky Bar in Bangkok
The menu at Vanilla Sky Bar, like the bar itself, is not terribly large. At the time of writing (September 2022), there are thirteen dishes on the menu. The grilled scallops with mango salsa strike our fancy! Or the giant pasta shells with butter chicken or Wagyu beef. The only dessert on the menu is the crème brûlée, but we would have chosen that anyway.
Unfortunately, we didn’t get to taste anything at Vanilla Sky ourselves. It started raining just after we finished our second cocktail and wanted to order something nice to eat. Luckily, we were able to move to MOJJO Rooftop Lounge & Bar on the 32nd floor where they have an attractive indoor area.
DID YOU KNOW?
Some dishes are also “borrowed” from MOJJO Rooftop Lounge & Bar. In fact, this sky bar is located several floors below, on the 32nd floor of the SKYVIEW Hotel Bangkok. So we see the MOJJO nachos, MOJJO fries and tacos platter on the menu here as well. Read our article on MOJJO Sky Lounge & Bar.
