Skytrain Jazz Club is an edgy alternative to Bangkok’s polished rooftop bars. With a location just outside of centre (Victory Monument) this uniquely Thai rooftop bar and restaurant is mostly overlooked by tourism. The food is authentic Thai, no fusion and plenty of heat. Cocktails are good and strong (180baht). Rarely play jazz.
The 5th floor balconies of Skytrain Jazz Club sit alongside the cities skytrain lines with views of passing trains and the nearby Victory Monument station. The graffitied entrance and stairways add to the restaurants urban setting. There is no lift so be prepared to walk.
