Stories From The Road

The Sky Bar, Lebua Hotel

THE SKY BAR – LEBUA HOTEL, BANGKOK, THAILAND – During our time in Bangkok, we had one night to truly enjoy the nightlife of Bangkok without having to worry about being out too late and getting up early. We decided that the best way to spend this night was to go to the highest bar in the city. This bar happens to be located at the Lebua Hotel and is called the Sky Bar. Many people may recognize this bar from the Hangover Part 2, which made it famous during the infamous breakfast scene between Mr. Chow and Leslie as the gang searches for Teddy. The bar is located on the top of the hotel and is extremely classy. A word of advice for guys is to wear pants, they won’t let you into the elevator if your not wearing them.

The top of the bar offered breath taking views of Bangkok. After the filming of the Hangover Part 2 the bartender created a drink for all of the cast members called the Hangovertini and it is still available. It cost 490 Bhat (approximately $16 USD), a little pricey for a drink, but totally worth it. It tasted of cinnamon and apple and possible a few other spices, definitely a foo-foo drink but worth trying if your only in Bangkok once. The only downside was that the bouncers were very specific about where you could take pictures.
