FAQ Bangkok Rooftops

The age limit at most Bangkok rooftop bars is +20, as the legal drinking age in Bangkok and Thailand is 20 (source). The more high-end the rooftop venue is, the more likely are the chanches you will be asked for ID. As a foreign visitor, not looking to young, most casual bars will probably not ask for ID. During daytime, rooftops with a pool are usually open to all ages, and children can usually visit rooftop bars if accompanied by an adult.

Most Bangkok rooftop bars are non-smoking venues. Since 2019, Thailand and Bangkok introduced stricter smoking laws, which does not only prohibit smoking inside public areas, but now also at a 5-metre ‘exclusion zone’ outside public entrances and exits (source). So while more and more rooftop bars are now non-smoking, some still allow smoking in designated areas. However, note that E-cigarettes and Vaping is banned in Bangkok.

While there is no general standard, most Bangkok rooftop bars have a dress code of no sports attire and no sandals/flip-flops or sleeveless shirts for men. Think 'smart casual', with well-fitting and neat, yet comfortable clothes. During daytime the dress code is usually more casual, and venues with a rooftop pool can be visited in just shorts and t-shirt. You can find the specicifc dress code for each rooftop bar in Bangkok by clicking them above, or read more in this article.

Yes, the majority of Bangkok rooftop bars has a free entrance. So while you usually do not have to pay anything to go up and enjoy the Bangkok skyline views, expect prices that are higher than at a regular Bangkok bar. If there is an entrance fee at the rooftop bars, it is usually in connection with an event, like a rooftop party with DJs and entertainment, or something even more special, like a New Year's Eve event.

The best time to visit a Bangkok rooftop bar is in the early evening. Most rooftop bars open around 5pm, when the daytime heat starts to settle, and we recommend arriving just about opening hour. This way you can enjoy both a fantastic Bangkok sunset, and hopefully enjoy the rooftop bar without to much of a crowd. Daytime visits to Bangkok rooftop bars is only recommended if there is a rooftop pool.

No, usually you do not have to be a hotel guest to visit a Bangkok hotel rooftop bar. At least not during night time, when almost all rooftops are open to the public. During daytime it is more common that sections of the rooftop (or the while terrace) is exclusive to guests staying at the hotel. If there is a rooftop pool, this is most likely only available to in-house guests.

We usually make a distinction between a sky bar and rooftop bar, where a sky bar is all indoors and a rooftop bar offers an open-air terrace. However, in Bangkok, an open-air bar on top of a building is often referred to as both sky bar and rooftop bar. So it is hard to tell any difference between a sky bar Bangkok and a rooftop bar Bangkok.
