One of my 'splurges' during my trip to Bangkok was trying out Cloud47 in Silom area, one of the newest skybars in the city. We were supposed to go to Banyan Tree Hotel, but our Airbnb host Jesse suggested that we try this place instead because they are not too strict with the attire as opposed to Banyan Tree. He also mentioned that the prices of the drinks aren't that expensive, so we took his advice.
From our guesthouse, we rode the BTS to Sala Daeng (B2), took Exit 2 and walked towards United Center. Cloud47 is located on the 47th floor.
Seeing how spacious and not-so-crowded Cloud47 was came a bit of a shock for me, as most bars in Manila are really crowded. Mind you, we arrived around midnight.
It was completely laid-back, with this breathtaking view of the Bangkok skyline.
We opted to try their exclusive cocktails, mine is Cloud Martini (350Baht or Php 476) and my friend got Bangkok Summertime (350 Baht or Php 476).
Cloud Martini is a mix of Absolut vodka, blue curacao, apple, lychee, pineapple, lime juice & foam with fruit.
Bangkok Summertime is a mix of Havana 7 years, lychee, passion fruit & lime juice.
Both cocktails were served on ice cones on top of cocktail glasses.
I really loved how relaxing the vibe was, given the loud music from the DJs and the ever-changing colors of the lights.
The only downside was it closes at 1:00AM, another shock to me. Anyhoo, we needed to get home early anyway as we have a flight to Chiang Mai the next day.
More Thailand stories soon. :)
