The best rooftop bars aren’t necessarily the highest. CHAR in Bangkok is “only” 26 floors up at Hotel Indigo’s rooftop, but the views of Bangkok’s skyline is absolutely breathtaking – especially during sunset. CHAR is a pretty small rooftop bar but well designed with private lounges by the glass facade. The music was good, the drinks were good. We loved it here!
We reserved the lounge in the middle section. To reserve, you’ll need to order a minimum of 3,000 baht in the bar – drinks or food. Since we were six people, it was not a problem. My wife and I showed up early because I wanted to take some pictures during sunset.
Spectacular skyline. The tallest building in the background is also the tallest building in Thailand; MahaNakhon (314 meters).
While waiting for our friends, we ordered some cocktails; a mojito for me and a cosmopolitan for my wife. The cocktails cost around 300 baht, which is a good price compared to other rooftop bars in Bangkok.

We ordered some scallops from the snack menu.
And toasted with white wine. It was a great night, and I must say this is my new favorite rooftop bar.
