DUMBO the rooftop bar in Bangkok, a hidden gem | VIDEO

Tanutam Thawan



Located in the heart of Bangkok City, Thailand. Just a few metres away from the Saphan Khwai BTS station, ‘DUMBO BKK’ offers a fine mixture of jazz, great food and original cocktails. Bringing you back to the urban tenors of the late 1940s – early 1950s, New York. Som, one of our new Thaiger Vloggers sneaks in, and brings us her impressions of the place. Let’s check it out!

    Dumbo might well also reflect the intellectual direction Thaiger seems to be heading in lately. Sad to see.

      Why always so negative? I understand the criticism of Thailand’s “democratically elected government”. But even a video about a rooftop bar is not good? If you don’t want to watch it, there is no one to force you.

      Robert B, I couldn’t agree more.

      Aren’t bars in Bangkok closed, so WTF is the point in this?

    I didn’t know Saphan Khwai was the heart of the city.

      Heart of the city is Nana. Everything else is suburbs.

    One day roof top bars are being raided by gold helmets. Another day they’re being promoted in the media. Wtf?

    Garnishing one’s report with juicy words such as “fascinating”, “awesome”, “captivating” won’t conceal the bitter truth behind all that decorative entourage…in fact, people just consume poison via alcohol, smell and inhale toxic smoke and pollution from surrounding area, listen to somewhat “intellectual” music and never ending street noise, see multiple concrete and steel walls, thus rapidly destructing themselves…while being convinced they’re relaxing, progressing and enjoying life.

    Not my kind of place, but ok, I’m not the arbiter of taste here. The mixture of alcohol and narrow stairs doesn’t appeal to me; neither does the mixture of non-alcoholic drinks and PM 2.5. Don’t much care for the absurd name and 100 dollar bill either, but that’s just me. To each his own.
