Bangkok can be an overwhelming city, bursting with colour and candour at every turn. In a city that revels in noise and activity, finding a place like the Penthouse Bar + Grill in the Park Hyatt Bangkok seems like a godsend.
The undulating waves of the Park Hyatt are unmistakable from a distance, and the hotel’s brand of restrained, understated luxury spills over into the sprawling leisure complex of the Penthouse Bar + Grill, which spans three floors and consists of six different concepts.
The intimate whiskey room – tucked away at the back of the complex for absolute privacy – is drenched in dark woods, moody lights and a baby grand piano, looking every bit the quintessential gentleman’s club from days long past.
If you’d prefer to soak in Bangkok’s convivial atmosphere – albeit from a distance – the rooftop bar offers wraparound views of the city along with an excellent selection of cocktails. ◼
