We do love to escape Bangkok’s brutal heat by sipping a few cocktails atop a building overlooking a gorgeous skyline view of the bustling city as much as the next tourist..well, that is until we receive the bill!
Expensive and Skybar has become synonymous in Bangkok, which is not totally unfair considering the food and drink is generally excellent, but the idea to “pay” for a view can get tiring, especially if you’re a local.
Enter… AIRE BAR! A new Skybar on the floor of the brand spanking new Hyatt Place hotel which pits itself as a place for the “self-reliant traveler”, which is code for “budget”, but still with mod comforts and without the over-service bull.
Saraid Carey, local Wonderwoman / General Manager behind the record opening ( 4 Months ) Hyatt Place, gives us the first run-down on the AIRE BAR concept which claims to be the first of its kind in the Upper Sukhumvit area, with cocktails not to exceed 300 THB! And if you’re looking for a fantastic Skybar deal to rein in the New Years, Saraid’s also got the deal for you.
A day to give thanks to so many supporters, families near and far, our owner, our company, my colleagues and our first guests.

BKF: Please give us a little summary of the Hyatt Place model?
At Hyatt Place Bangkok Sukhumvit we are focused on creating a place that offers 24/7 conveniences; it’s a stylish brand which focuses more on casual modern comforts.
The brand is designed for the self-reliant traveler in mind that wants to seamlessly go in and out of our hotel, be it work or play with ease.
The Hyatt Place brand is a welcoming place and intends to be uncomplicated in each interaction or experience. Basically, convenience and comfort without the fussiness.
BKF: What will the Aire Bar will offer and what would attract punters to go there?
AIRE BAR is ideal for guests and locals looking for after work drinks or weekend escapades.We are located in the new CBD district of Sukhumvit 24, AIRE BAR features two open-air terraces that looks out onto the dazzling cityscape of Bangkok’s city skyline and Benjasiri park.
The bar has a fresh and breezy space which is an ideal spot for those in the neighborhood in dire need of “fresh” air or showing a visitor around to take in the impressive views.
Sometimes, as locals, we don’t stop or get the opportunity to relax at skybars due to price and inconvenience or either the setting feels too formal or it’s geared toward tourists.
But AIRE BAR provides a setting which is simple and stylish indoor/outdoor without over-pretension. A perfect haven for an after work drink with colleagues or friends or even a romantic, chilled evening.
For refreshments, the customers can select from a wide range of classic drinks or more inventive cocktails, created especially for AIRE BAR, or choose from a full list of more traditional beverages or wines by the glass or local and craft beers.
The food, we are still finalizing but we guarantee there will be affordable; small plate tapas and bar snacks, such as olives, cheese and charcuterie platters and other delectable bites.
For entertainment the AIRE BAR will provide chilled out tunes until late and energizing party and live music elements on Friday and Saturday evenings.
Our focus is on great taste and good value! From early evening until late at night. AIRE BAR will deliver fun and style with a comfortably simplified but unique experience.
