Long Table has something many other upmarket BKK rooftop bars are severely lacking in: atmosphere. Whether it’s the sultry low lighting, the long ebony bar, or the bangin’ beats, Long Table is all about understated sophistication. Classy.
Named after the 25-metre table that runs the length of the restaurant inside, Long Table is surprisingly generous with pricing and portions. BarChick practically got a pint of Red Silk made from Absolut, Grand Marnier, mint, grapes, cinnamon, apple juice and red fruit tea, which was our side of strong.
Long Table’s cocktail menu – or Long Tail – is refreshingly no-nonsense compared with many of the city’s other high-end watering holes, with Asian twists on old favourites and an Asian fusion menu of food to match.
Created by the same people behind Bed Supperclub, expect that kind of flashy vibe. Be warned, it gets so dark on the roof terrace you can hardly see who’s sitting next to you, which can make for some awkward encounters with strangers.
Book one of the tables on the edge of the terrace for the best views, or risk a bad case of seat envy.
