The Best Places to Go Out on a Date in Bangkok

1. Lord Jim's at Mandarin Oriental:

Lord Jim’s is at the Mandarin Oriental, an internationally renowned-award winning 5-star hotel, so of course it will be classy, traditional and slightly formal. Although you are not required to wear black-tie attire, you will be expected to dress up a little for this restaurant. With regards to the food, they are best known for their seafood selection amongst other things but all the food is very delicious. A dining by the river experience at Lord Jim’s would surely impress your date.

Price: ££££

Location: right in the Mandarin Oriental hotel in the old French quarter, Bangrak-Charoenkrung area, next to Chaopraya river. Parking is available in the hotel garage, or you could get there by boat from BTS Saphan Taksin station.

2. Asiatique:

Asiatique might seem really touristy to many people, but in fact, there are many legit restaurants choices for you to enjoy. Wine, I love you – another local favourite Thai-Western restaurant, has just opened a branch there; Happy Fish is a fun seafood restaurant where you can chill outside, experience live music, and enjoy the riverside. The other side of Asiatique features some really tasty Japanese sake-bar styled restaurants – Kacha Kacha Teppanyaki, and Ibushi Ginjiro.

Apart from dining, Asiatique offers fun activities such as trying some local desserts and snacks in their food market section too. You can even go on a Ferris wheel for a beautiful view of Bangkok and have a little alone time up there. All in all, Asiatique is best for those who enjoy a little active setting and not so typical date. The place is outdoor, you will get nice breeze from the river, and if you’re lucky you might get a kiss by the pier.

Price: ££

Location: situated by the river which means you can arrive there by boat from the BTS Saphan Taksin station. They also have their own parking lot.

3. Sortrel Sathorn: 

Sortrel is definitely an all-time local favourite. The restaurant is perfect for decent authentic Thai food, drinks, and live music in a super casual setting. You have the option to sit inside with air-conditioning when it’s too hot, or sit outside in the open-air when it’s cool. Sortrel is recommended for more relaxed dates.

Price: £

Location: conveniently located on Narathiwas, just off Sathorn. Plenty of street parking around the restaurant.

4. Park Society Rooftop at So Sofitel Bangkok:

Park Society is an open-air trendy yet classy rooftop bar overlooking Lumphini park and the Bangkok cityscape, perfect for night-outs and cocktail dates. The fact that the bar is so close to the park, you can still feel comfortable and breezy during Bangkok’s humid summer nights and enjoy the scenery.

Price: £££ - international chain hotel standard, so a little pricy but worth it.

Location: So Sofitel is situated in a very central area of Bangkok between Rama IV and Sathorn. Easy access from the MRT Lumphini Station. Parking available in the hotel garage.

5. His balcony:

If your date has a good balcony view, why not? There are parts of Bangkok that have the most breath-taking cityscape, that way you can both relax in a cosy environment, get to know more about each other over a glass of wine and listen to his favourite playlist.

Price: -

Location: well it depends, isn’t it?
