State Tower Skybar @The Dome Bangkok

After dealing with Riverbird that if he accompanies me to the moon (Skybar) I will accompany him to the river (Dinner Cruise). FYI, Riverbird have Fear of High Open Places phobia (Aeroacrophobia).

We are going to The Dome, a famous Skybar in Bangkok. Opened in the winter of 2003 and it is located on 64th floor of the State Tower in Bangkok (the second tallest building in Bangkok).

My black old dress
bought it 14 years ago :P

Warning!! They have dress code policy and won’t let you in with slippers, sneakers or shorts. I'm wearing a simple black dress and Riverbird is wearing Topman long sleeves shirt with jean.The best time to go is late evening before sunset and we managed to reach there just in time to witness the sun setting behind the magnificent Chao Phraya River.

Take the elevator up to the 64th floor

Finally we reached on top of The Dome at State Tower, 64th floors above the hectic streets of Bangkok. The rooftop bar boasts 360 degree views of the Bangkok city in every direction, as far as the eye can see.

Good Evening Bangkok!!!

I heard the food is expensive and we just order a cocktails and stand around the bar for its view and wind. The waiter and waitress are friendly and polite.

We are not allowed to take photo from the staircase looking down at the bar. According to one of the waiter, they afraid the flash from the camera will disturbing their guests during dinner. But they allowed us to take photos from the bar itself.

Prominent architecture

Then we walked down to the open Skybar also voted as "one of the world's highest bars". The oval-shaped bar just out over the edge of the building with barely a barrier to separate the imbibers from the street some 800ft below.

Beware girls, tied up your hair before come here

It's definitely one of the cooler places I have been to. No wonder everyone is saying "It’s one of the most unique places in Bangkok, if not in the whole world".

Skybar is a walk in venue. There is no need to reserve a seat.

Open daily from 6.00pm - 01.00am
How to go there: Just tell the taxi driver " Please drive me to Lebua at State Tower 1055 Silom Road, Bangrak, Bangkok.
Tel:02 2624 9999

After the drinks, we went back to Pratunam for dinner.

After filling up our tummies, we went to Boiyoke Sky rooftop, the tallest building in Bangkok and have great views of the city, especially at night. Remember to go after 10.30pm cause there no more charge for the entrance fee. Boiyoke Sky also has open air-revolving observation deck but closed at 10.30pm. I 'm going to blog about Boiyoke Sky revolving view point in another post.
