World’s Tallest Hotel Bar and Restaurant is…?

July 30, 2009 By:K. Clare Johnson

lebua at State TowerLooks like there's more than one hotel rooftop bar and/or restaurant vying for the title of world's highest. We wrote on July 27 about some great rooftop spots for dining, drinking and star-gazing. Banyan Tree Bangkok's spectacular 61st floor Vertigo Grill and Moon Bar was one of the luxury spots we mentioned as being the world's highest. Turns out that lebua at State Tower, also in Bangkok, has the Sirocco Restaurant, which they bill as the world's highest open air restaurant, located on the 63rd floor. We're big fans of their Sky Bar, too, which we highlighted a few years ago.

Rather than wade in to the fray about who is the highest, has the best views, or the best drinks/food or service, we'll just say that we wish we were enjoying the view from either one of them right about now.
