Classic and upscale rooftop cocktail bar, overlooking the Bangkok skyline and Chao Phraya River.
Distil Rooftop Bar Bangkok is a classic cocktail bar, located on the 64th floor of the 5-star Lebua at State Tower. A bit less known than the very famous Sky Bar Bangkok one floor below, but Distil was actually the first rooftop bar at Lebua, and is truly a 'senior' in the Bangkok rooftop scene.
The rooftop is quite small, but the seating available is really cool. Part intimate indoor lounge with a round bar, and part outdoor terrace, with edge sofas all around, getting you really close up with the impressive skyline.
From the elegant rooftop bar, you can order cocktails of the highest class, from classics to more creative creations. But, they do not come cheap, so be prepared to spend or just settle for one cocktail with an amazing view before moving on.
There is also an an exclusive selection of cigars and spirits, as well as a food menu with more bite-like dishes, such as sliders, oysters, sushi and caviar.
With Distil Rooftop Bar being a bit less known than the neighbor below, there might be a better chance to get a good spot up here. Try to arrive at opening around 5pm. This way you will both catch the best seat and the amazing sunset from the west-facing terrace.
Fun fact: On the top floors of Lebua State Tower you also find the rooftop bars Distil, Flute, lebua No.3, Alfresco 64 and Pink Bar, and many would argue that together they create one of the best and most impressive rooftop experiences in the world.
