Dining in the sky
Emerging onto the 29th floor of Hyatt Regency Hotel Bangkok, diners are greeted with an array of food, music, art pieces on display with access to a double-decked rooftop right in the centre of town.
Resembling a couple’s penthouse living space, Spectrum is a casual dining rooftop that offers much more than great food, good music and a view.
Each section of Spectrum Lounge & Bar presents different purposes that can be tailored to fit everyone’s needs whether it is a private dining room, a business dining occasion, a corporate event with facilities supported like the drop-down projector screen or an open expanse of the rooftop areas that can host from company parties to romantic dinner for two.
The menu here is designed to be fulfilling so be aware that they don’t come in small portions when you order. A parade of signature dishes began with a hearty serving of delectable and crispy soft shell crab with sweet and sour tamarind sauce and taro fritter (B410).
Next up was the imported cold cuts—a plate of five different delicately sliced cured ham and salami that offer delicious salty bites (B410); followed by the fresh and juicy rock lobster tail that comes with aromatic confit garlic and parsley (B580).
Must-not-miss dishes include the perfectly grilled BBQ Wagyu beef finger ribs with delicious mushroom spinach salad (B850), followed closely by the savoury lobster roll that comes with big chunks of fresh and sumptuous lobster meat served with creamy sauce and a side of fries (B790).
Since Spectrum is also a bar, diners have a variety of cocktails to choose from but the diners’ favourites include signature cocktails like Mad Mango—a chilled and infused Ketel One vodka with mango puree mixed with spicy mango, elderflower, lime and chilli and salt on the glass rim (B280); or Hole in One—a cocktail with Tanqueray gin base mix with Cointreau, refreshing lemon juice, lemongrass, honey syrup, fresh orange juice and kaffir lime leaf to finish (B330) to name a couple.
The lineup of DJs here will kick off the evening with relaxing yet upbeat house and lounge music that will gear toward more dance and electro beats as the night waned. With the breathtaking view of Bangkok skyline in the background, this surely is one easily accessed rooftop bar to visit.
