Balco Bar


Alfresco rooftop bar by the riverside, good alternative to classy hotel rooftop venues surrounding it. Offering the same stunning view of Chao Phraya river but without the price tag.  This rooftop bar is different from all other sky bars in the city, aside from it is pretty amazing, people can just be themselves and just let their hair down and enjoy every minute. 

The atmosphere is casual and pleasant without worrying about dress code or pricey drinks. Soothing bossa nova tunes begin the evening before it shifts to house beats later into the night.  The rooftop is shared with Rivercity Bar BQ restaurant. Open Tues - Sun 7pm - 2am

Located on the 5th floor rooftop of Rivercity, which is home of the main pier for dinner cruise events. Rivercity offers many features for tourism, restaurants, bars, souvenirs. From the the open rooftop bar and BBQ restaurant you can enjoy an overhead view of the tour boat activities as well as sweeping  views of the river.
