The World's Highest Outdoor Whisky Bar Has Opened in Bangkok
Sip scotch 64 floors above Thailand's capital.
Nearly 250 metres above street level sits Bangkok's newest attraction: the highest outdoor whisky bar in the world. Opening at The Tower Club at Lebua, Alfresco 64 takes sipping on Scotch to towering extremes — and pairs its tasty tipples with quite the killer view.
Located on the 64th floor of the building immortalised in The Hangover Part II, the sky-high whisky haven isn't just about drinking any old beverage while taking in the city's scenic sights, though. Alfresco 64 was designed to showcase the hotel's very own drop, the Chivas Regal Exclusive Lebua Blend. Made from whiskies from 1985 and earlier, it's a limited and expensive drink, with each one of the 96 bottles made only available at the bar for a price of US$7ooo each.
No wonder the whole 200-square-metre space is decked out like a luxury yacht, including the outdoor counter and indoor VIP room, which comes complete with a captain's seat. Alas, to hop inside, you have to part with enough money to buy a bottle. Don't worry — other varieties are available outside for those who can't part with such a huge chunk of cash for some whisky, i.e. most people.
