CHAR Rooftop Bar in Bangkok

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!

CHAR Rooftop Bar private lounge

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).

Cocktails at CHAR Rooftop Bar in Bangkok

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.

And toasted with white wine. It was a great night, and I must say this is my new favorite rooftop bar.

    Wow I go there all the time and sit anywhere I didn’t know there was a 3000 minimum. Probably because they know I will spend that anyway 😀

      Hi, Willy. It’s awesome to get a comment from you!

      Yep, that’s what they said when we called and booked. Perhaps it’s different when you just show up and a table is available. Or like you said, they know you will spend it anyway 🙂
