The Cielo Sky Bar and Restaurant is an amazing roof top bar located on the 46th floor of the SkyWalk condominium building at Phra Khanong. Not so central as many of the other sky bars, Cielo offers the best views of all of Bangkok and has a unique 360 degree panorama high above the city!
With a dedicated entrance you are whisked up to the 46th floor on their private elevator and as the door open you will immediately noticed the refined elegance of the Cielo roof top.
The inside restaurant (it does rain sometimes in Bangkok!) is tastefully furnished and the large windows give a feeling of being outside even during inclement weather. It also features the unique ‘Sky Walk’ that gave the building it’s name. This is a glass walkway over the atrium of the building and looking through the glass you look straight down more than 30 stories to the fish pond below. Not for the squeamish!
However it is outside that Cielo excels. As you walk outside you will be astounded by the vistas spread before you. You look down on Sukhumvit, the centre, the port and the airport. Comfortable seating is spread around the entire floor with a lot of space between the tables allowing a high degree of privacy.
The waiters and bar staff are superb. Extremely friendly, proficient and knowledgeable with a vast range of drinks and cocktails to suite every palate.
Excelling in view, ambience and drinks, Cielo continues this trend with their attitude to fine dining by hiring a new start Chef who is fast on the rise, “Chef Ping” or Surakij Khemkaew. His signature dishes combine Modern Western and his take on Thai Fusion especially combining salmon and duck to create alternative flavours, all beautifully served!
The menu is not large but offers an excellent range of choices all of which will be prepared individually to provide the best flavours. Cielo offers an extensive wine list with prices to suit every pocket.
Our impressions: An amazing roof top bar, incredible views and excellent service. It is relatively expensive but is certainly a contender for those special, romantic evenings.
