What is an evening at Sirocco like? It’s an experience best taken in with all five senses—difficult to describe, but we’ll try. Its sights are iconic: lebua’s imposing golden dome above you, the twinkling lights of Bangkok around and below.
Its sounds: the live jazz band and audible gasps as guests emerge from the dome and catch a first glimpse of the view. “Wow.” We hear that a lot.
Its smells and tastes also tend to elicit appreciative gasps: authentic Mediterranean cuisine cooked to perfection. It’s so perfect, in fact, that the food, wine, ambiance and service all received a perfect ten from Thailand Tatler.
Take a Mediterranean voyage without moving from your seat, and experience flavors from Mykonos, Nice, Rome, Barcelona, Tunis and Beirut, all imaginatively interpreted. For the full taste experience, make sure to add our sommeliers’ recommended pairings.
An evening at Sirocco has become so iconic—so synonymous with Bangkok fine dining—that it might surprise you to hear that it almost didn’t happen.
When lebua was getting its start, we were told by many that a rooftop restaurant where Sirocco now sits was a bad idea. There was no view. Believing in our vision for the world’s highest alfresco restaurant, we used 100 tons of steel to elevate the floor, ultimately creating one of Bangkok’s finest views and most celebrated dining experiences.
Finally, how about the sense of touch? How does a night at Sirocco feel on the skin? It’s a pleasant balmy breeze—none of the hot stickiness you might find 64 floors below. Or, maybe, goosebumps. Not from chill, but from the whole experience—a little bit of moonlit magic. But don’t take our word for it. Like we said, it’s something you need to experience for yourself.
