It doesn't get much better than this when trying to combine dazzling cityscapes, fine drinking, and suave nightlife venues. CRU Champagne Bar is a new elegant and elevated bar which is now the highest drinking spot in town. The Red Sky Bar several floors below it is nice enough, but you'll need to pop into the private elevator and head up another three flights to access this skyline gem. The bar has teamed up with GH Mumm and is the only place in Bangkok you can get their #1 edition pink champagne, or if you dare, a bottle of Bollinger James Bond 007 Spectre Limited Edition. You can toast to the heavens with this fine bubbly, or else opt for the cool signature drinks such as the Perfumed Lady, mixed with Beefeater gin, passion fruit, lime, mint, and vanilla foam, or a Bangkok Bellini, concocted with mandarin Absolut vodka, mango, ginger, and champagne. The views up here are beyond sublime, with all of Bangkok spread out in front of you on all sides. You can see the Golden Mount, the Grand Palace, the Chao Phraya River, all of downtown's major skyscrapers, and the nearby Baiyoke Tower II even looks on equal footing. Come here for sunset, sprawl out on the comfy seating, and if you get hungry, there are foie gras yakitori chicken skewers, caviar, cheese platters, and plenty of other snacks to get you through the transformation from day to night in Bangkok's most lofty drinking zone.
- Best Nightlife: "You'll need to get to the Centara Grand (behind CentralWorld), take the elevator up to the 23rd floor, change to another elevator for Red Sky (55th floor), and then the final lift up to CRU."
