The Red Sky Restaurant in Bangkok Thailand is one of southeast Asia's premier dining locations for one important reason; the views. Perched atop of the 54th and 55th floors of Centara Grand Hotel Centralworld in the heart of Bangkok, the outdoor dining area of this swanky restaurant provides guests with great cuisine and 360 degree panoramic views of the Bangkok skyline at night; views which are truly breathtaking.
If you are seeking a venue for a romantic dinner while you are visiting Thailand then you can't go past this restaurant. I first visited the Red Sky in 2010 and absolutely loved it, and in my opinion this is one of the best places to visit in Thailand.
The restaurant is conveniently located in the heart of Bangkok near Siam or the Pathumwan district where the largest and trendiest shopping malls can be found including MBK, Siam Paragon and Centralworld.
The Red Sky Restaurant (or the Red Sky Bistro and Bar) which opened back in 2008 boasts both an indoor and outdoor dining area, and establishes a romantic mood by offering live jazz music, gentle night time breezes (if you dine outdoors), soft LED lighting which change colour along with the glittering lights of Bangkok at night.
Chest high glass panels surround the outdoor dining area and these help to subdue any strong winds which may be felt at this height.
However, the Red Sky is also about the delicious food and drinks and with a professional chef on board (see below) you will not be disappointed by his creations.
The cuisine includes fresh produce including fish, lobster, steak, chicken, rosemary and Parmesan fries, while the drinks which include vodka, champagne, beer, cocktails and soft drinks.
While dining here comes at a premium it is well worth the expense to enjoy freshly cooked meals (including large portion desserts, see below) and to experience fine dining at high altitude while staring into the eyes of a loved one.
For the drinkers there is also a happy hour each day between 5 PM and 7 PM when the cost of alcoholic beverages are reduced although expect to pay around a $100 and more for dinner for two; much more if you dine here as a family.
The Red Sky Restaurant which opens daily from 7 PM to 1 AM is located on the 54th and 55th floors of Centara Grand Hotel Centralworld at 999/99 Rama 1 Road Pathumwan district, in the heart of Bangkok Thailand.
The best way to travel to the Red Sky Restaurant is by taxi or if you are taking the BTS Skytrain exit at the Siam Station.
