Cloud 47 Bar & Bistro is another newly opened (2013) rooftop bar in Bangkok, located at United Center Building on Silom Road. It is somehow different from the other competitors as this rooftop bar is located above an office building and not a hotel building. It is also the biggest / largest rooftop bar in Bangkok currently.
However, finding Cloud 47 can be quite challenging, hence I would like to walk you through the way up to the Cloud (Cloud 47)!
Enter the building and keep to your left. You will see true. Walk all the way straight.
You will exit this building and see another entrance. This is where you take the lift up to Cloud 47.
You will be greeted by the clouds as you exit the lift.
You will be amazed by how huge this place is.
Let’s take a look at the scenery offered.
At Cloud 47, there are several places for you to sit.
Outdoor, near the edge of the rooftop.
Upper deck, with super comfortable seats. Best for chilling out with a big group.
Indoor with air conditioning.
The open area, with the most seats. Open-air with high rise ceilings. With no high rise buildings blocking the wind, it can get extremely windy here.
Sun is setting! What a magnificent view.
Alright, enough of enjoying the scenery. Time for some food and drinks!
The food and drinks here are relatively cheap as compared to those at hotels.
Absolute Sun Seeker (Absolut Citron, Lime Wedges, Simple Syrup)
This drink is extremely sour and I actually don’t taste any alcohol. Maybe the bartender forgot some ingredients?
Absolut Cosmopolitan (Absolut Citron, TripleSec, Lemon Juice, Cranberry Juice)
Ah, at least this taste better and it was very pleasant to drink.
In general, the alcohol level on the cocktails are on the light side. So if you are those who enjoy alcohol, do request for stronger alcohol.
Pasta Garlic & Dried Chilli with Seafood
This dish is actually Aglio Olio and it’s spicy and flavourful. Those who love garlic will definitely love this. The pasta is cooked al dente with a nice bite and the seafood served is extremely fresh.
The garlic bread perhaps would be better if served with a soup as it’s very crispy. Dipping the bread into the soup allowing it to soften will be much better.
It comes with an extremely crispy skin and the pork is very soft and tender. It is lightly seasoned and it’s delicious even if when eaten on its own. The mashed potato was very smooth and a little sweet.
Cloud 47 also has a flying wine angel to take your wine from the air-conditioned glass wine cellar.
