It's 6:30 pm, just after sunset in Bangkok, Thailand. I'm standing in the Lebua Sky Bar with my boyfriend. From the 63rd floor, we look at the lights of the city and the river as I sip my hangovertini. In the article I tell you everything you need to know for your visit to one of the highest rooftop bars in the world - height, location, arrival, opening hours, prices and dress code.

Lebua Sky Bar Bangkok: location of the movie "Hangover 2"
It is the Rooftop Bar ( open daily from 4pm to 1am ) of the 5 star Lebua at State Tower . You can book the hotel via Booking.com.
In the movie "Hangover 2", the wolf pack with Chow visits the roof terrace, where the Sky Bar is located next to the outdoor restaurant Sirocco.
Even then I was fascinated by the view. It is one of the highest rooftop bars in the world . The New York Times raves about "the most breathtaking rooftop bar you'll ever see."
State Tower: Location height of Lebua Sky Bar
"Good that I'm not afraid of heights," says Carsten as we look up from the Chao Phraya River to the golden dome on the State Tower. Thailand's fifth tallest building, at 247 meters, is located in Bangkok's shopping and business district of Silom .
In the morning we arrived from Germany in Bangkok , checked in at our hotel and slept until 17 o'clock. We set the alarm because we want to be at the Lebua Sky Bar relatively early.
I have been to Bangkok many times before, also in the Lebua Sky Bar. For Carsten it is the first visit.
Getting to the Lebua Sky Bar
We find good to the Rooftop Bar Bangkok, which we can already see from our hotel - the Millennium Hilton . The way:
- by boat we drive to Sathorn (Taksin)
- then we walk for 10 minutes
- through the hall on the ground floor up to the elevators, here is already a long line
- Welcoming by the staff (important: comply with dress code, eg no flip flops)
- Take the elevator to the 64th floor
- go left outside
- the large staircase (you remember the scene in the movie?) going downstairs in the open to the rooftop restaurant and bar in changing colors
Dress code in the Lebua Sky Bar
You can feel like a movie star as you walk down the stairs and sip a cocktail in the rooftop bar.
As I look around, I realize: Especially the women have made very smart. Most wear long summer dresses and high shoes. The men are more likely to wear casual clothes.
It is a smart casual dress code. According to the dress code, you will not be admitted if you have the following:
- Flip flops
- in men, sleeveless clothing, shorts or open shoes
I'm wearing a turquoise tunic, long black pants and black ballerinas. Carsten is wearing a shirt, blue trousers and closed shoes.
We can easily get through the entrance control. Unlike my first visit a few years ago, my friends and I were not let in because we wore flip flops.
By the way, you can borrow or buy something at the booth in front of the building in case of emergency.
Prices in the Lebua Sky Bar
We take a look at the extensive drinks menu . I order a Hangovertini for salted 690 baht, Carsten a beer for 400 baht. With taxes and fees, we come to a total bill of 1,200 baht.
My cocktail was created for the film crew of "Hangover 2". It contains green tea liqueur, apple juice, martini and honey with rosemary. It tastes refreshing and fruity.
Update from October 2019: As a reader reported, the Hangovertini now costs a whopping 1,275 baht.
The atmosphere in the Lebua Sky Bar
The roof terrace I feel as very chic and stylish , just with the golden dome. The atmosphere is not stiff, but quite loose .
It is very crowded : we hear many Germans, Italians and French around us. Most of them are jostling on the ground to shoot photos. Or they are at the bar.
Near the bar are also the tables of Sirocco. Here you can enjoy a romantic dinner in the highest open-air restaurant in the world - but with quite a few people around you.
You can also sit in the Distil Bar on the 64th floor. There is much less going on here. But you have discs made of window glass in front of the fantastic view.
My conclusion to the Lebua Sky Bar
The view from one of the highest rooftop bars in the world is beautiful! I think you should visit the Lebua Sky Bar at least once . However, we found it very crowded and the prices for the drinks were very high.
