Strut your stuff above the city with this new HI-SO Ladies Night offering
Located at the SO Sofitel Hotel Bangkok, there is a newly revamped rooftop venue for Bangkok to party at. Perched on the 29th and 30th floors of the Hotel, you have an unobstructed view of the sun setting over the city and Bangkok’s lush green Lumpini Park. Most importantly, with the new refreshed venue, HI-SO has launched a party calendar, and tonight I am here to party.
I arrived as the sun was going down and the city lights were coming up. I will admit, this is one of best views of the city. What makes this rooftop view so unique is that you can directly see the skyline. You are not too high up where you are looking down on the buildings, so it gives way to understanding the architecture that Bangkok has to offer.
I start on the 29th floor and grab a seat to get comfortable. Shortly after I sit, a gentleman approaches me and says, “Ladies night is on the next level.” This must be where the party’s at. I find out the details of the party and follow the gentleman upstairs. Hands down this is probably one of the best value Ladies Night you can find in Bangkok.
The party is called “Good Girls Gone Bad”—seems like an appropriate theme for many ladies I know. It is a 3-hour FREE flow with three different beverage choices starting at 7:30 pm to 10:30 pm every Wednesday night. There are two entry ranges, B300 and B850 for the gentleman or fashionably late ladies. My suggestion, get there early so you can be one of the 50 ladies that can get in for B300 and drink to your heart’s content.
Again, I am approached by the same gentleman from downstairs, and he offers me a drink. I find out that his name is Kishan Rampersad and he is the resident beverage specialist. Well, I trust specialists when it comes to beverages, so I have him make me one of the SO Signature cocktails. “Lumpini’s Pride” is what he brings me. Vodka-based with a sweet and savoury flavour, that is what pleased me the most. I hang out at one of the high top tables that looks straight out to that amazing skyline. While other guests sat in the low seating where I saw them munching away on bar nibbles. It is an international menu, so it has something for everyone
By this time the DJ’s are in full effect. Beats pumping to attract people from downstairs to come upstairs and I am digging the ambience. The party is full of young, beautiful woman from all over the world strutting their stuff. I am thinking, this is a place to be seen any night of the week. Swanky, stylish and sultry is what this rooftop brings to the mix. If HI-SO continues on this path of parties, you will not want to miss out.
