A footloose and fancy free rooftop cocktail bar with a pool in Bangkok, amBar serves the good times with a side of refreshing drinks, beer, and bites.

Located on the eighth floor of the fabulous Four Points by Sheraton Hotel in the heart of buzzing Bangkok, amBar is a relaxing rooftop retreat, complete with friendly service, quality cocktails, and even a refreshing pool thrown in for good measure. While many rooftop ‘bars with a view’ can suffer from taking themselves a bit too seriously at times, amBar is just the opposite: a fun and laid back place perfect for sipping drinks al fresco with friends old and new. And what an al fresco arrangement that have put together at amBar, with a gorgeous array of rattan day beds, couches, floor-bound lantern-style lighting fixtures and plenty of swaying palms. Of course, the centerpiece of the venue is the aforementioned pool, which can be swum in during their special daytime ‘amWet’ parties. During typical nights though the pool simply shimmers under a showstopping red arch, adding a truly special ambiance to the proceedings.

The cocktails on offer at amBar range from the usual suspects like mojitos, mai tais, pina coladas, and sex on the beaches to the more mixology-focused, best exemplified in a recent themed range called 7 Deadly Sins. This set of cocktails included Pride – premium gin, dry vermouth, elderflower, lime, and cucumber; Sloth – bourbon, French herbal liqueur, pomegranate and cranberry, and a quintet of similar sippers. In addition, a vast range of beer, spirits, and cigars from around the world are also stocked.
