A few days ago, I was invited for dinner in one of the restaurants of the Lebua hotel, the hotel that is part of the State Tower in Bangkok. The State Tower is the third tallest building (so far) in Bangkok, having 68 floors and culminating at 247 m, where the Dome is.
So before having dinner, I went first to the Sky bar, located on the 64th floor and where you can have a drink while having a panoramic view of Bangkok. Lot of people there and quite a strict dress code, so do not go with flip-flops, they won’t let you in.
There are a few restaurants on the top floor, one inside, in the Dome, and one outside, The Sirocco. It looks private but it is not really, lot of people at the sky bar in front of it ( I unfortunately did not get a good photo of it).
Some of the tables area more private, to a certain extent, they are on the side of the building, but still pretty close to the sky bar. It is anyway pretty dark in the evening, so that helps as far as privacy is concerned. And nice view.
This is not the cheapest place in town, by far, but reasonable considering the location and the view.
This is not where I had dinner, it was a few floors down, on the 52th floor. When out of the lift, you will access the restaurant by walking on a bridge.
A bridge that is changing colour, here is the purple version.
You can have big tables there but also small ones, same as in The Sirocco, but much more private, less people. And the view is as good as in The Sirocco.
One thing that you can’t really feel by looking at the pictures unfortunately, is the breeze, hence the name of the restaurant. There is quite a nice wind cooling you down and making the place, with the view, one on the most enjoyable place to have dinner outside, in Bangkok.
All the pictures, except the first one, were taken by the Canon 6D and the Canon lens 24-105mm at 24mm, hence a bit of distortion here and there.
