July 2014 After visiting the Jim Thompson House we were thirsty and made a stop at the Mercure Hotel Siam. The building is shared with the Ibis Hotel Siam. While the Ibis is on the lower floors the Mercure occupies the higher floors of the new tower. The Sky Lobby Bar is located on the 9th floor. The interiors are cool, understated and contemporary. There are floor to ceiling windows and a fully furnished balcony. The views over the National Stadium, the surrounding area and Bangkok are stunning. We had a look at the menu and when we were ready to order nobody was behind the bar counter. I went to the reception to tell the staff there we would like to have some drinks. They were a bit surprised, but said somebody would be with us soon. A couple of minutes later the bar tender was with us. At the time the Sky Lobby Bar offered a North Thailand special. There was for example a sausage dish, but since we weren't hungry, we went for the coconut smoothies, which were also on the North Thailand section, and a water. The menu had a coconut theme for the season. We could watch how the smoothies were made from scratch. It included opening a fresh coconut. The drinks were generous and good value. Our bill came in at 290 THB (ca. 6.80 Euro or 9.10 USD). Should we be in the area we definitely stop for a drink and maybe even a snack. Would we recommend this Bar to a friend? YES! Would we visit this Bar again? YES! Thank you and Safe travels.
