Bangkok’s New Spectrum Rooftop Bar Set to Open on March 20th

Award-winning Japanese architecture firm Super Potato tops off Hyatt Regency Bangkok

BANGKOK – As sprawling and glamorous as a luxury home,
Bangkok’s newest rooftop bar opens its doors this week as a sparkling new gem in the
crown of Bangkok’s top-shelf night spots.

Designed by the Japanese design firm Super Potato, the Hyatt Regency Bangkok’s new
Spectrum Lounge & Bar is a multi-faceted venue that quickly parts company with
expectation. On three different levels, the expansive lounge features a collection of really
cool, intimate spaces.

“The inspiration behind the new venue is a jet-setting couple, who have created a soulful,
welcoming space to entertain guests,” explained Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit’s
GM, Sammy Carolus. “This story is told through the design pieces on display, ranging
from Thai art to musical instruments, and the variety of distinct areas within the venue,
like you’d find in a luxury penthouse.”

Spread over three levels the journey begins on the 29th floor. Handcrafted basket-weave
doors lead into a plush gathering space with marble floors and an open kitchen,
surrounded by earthy wooden walls. The Thai influence comes through with a scene of
the Chao Phraya River decorating one wall and backlit panels with local patterns
shedding light over the space. An intimate study room with a shared table features a flat
screen TV for presentations, and at night it metamorphoses into a private dining facility
with a floor-to-ceiling outlook on the city’s skyline.

The spacious living room entices guests to linger with deep, cushioned chairs and
wooden tables spread out over a velvety blue carpet. Above intricate Thai patterns
etched into gold panels are an ode to the iconic gold Thai Buddha’s hand. The nearby
indoor bar creates an edgier vibe with a sleek, black marble countertop.

Sliding doors allow each room to be separated from the others or all can stay open in
order to create a more flowing space. Like the hotel itself, the sum of all Spectrum’s parts
evokes a cozy, residential atmosphere.

A spacious alfresco terrace spans level 30 and 31, the eclectic area features a large open
deck with seats for two and alcoves framed by verdant trees with huge daybeds and
private tables. There are pops of lime green in the seats, as well as more nautical-themed
chairs and tables, and seating for more intimate conversations.

Given the venue’s name, Spectrum, refers to a range of colours, lighting plays a pivotal
role in setting the scene. The overall lighting is designed to create a warm and cozy
ambiance, a feeling of being at home, with the functionality to change to several scene
settings depending on the occasion. The study and meeting room also has its own
individual stage control and the lobby space plays with a changing projection – that can
be adapted to a particular event.

“Before Spectrum you could not get this type of ambiance in Bangkok,” said Super
Potato’s vice president, Norihiko Shinya. “It’s hard to compare this with any other rooftop
bars in the area as this is type of space is quite special to have in the middle of
downtown.”

A selection of premium tapas such as smoked Scottish salmon & Russian caviar atop
bagels, wagyu beef sliders, and crispy soft shell crab with tamarind sauce on a taro fritter,
are available at the lounge & bar. Craft cocktails, wine, and a comprehensive beer
selection make up the drink menu with concoctions such as Mad Mango, chili-infused
vodka, mango puree, spicy mango, elderflower, lime, chili and salt; and Giant Pandan, a
blend of vodka, Midori, grapefruit juice, pandan (a common plant in Southeast Asia), lime,
egg white & bitters.

With a total space of 280 square meters (over 3,000 square feet) Spectrum can host 80
guests for indoor gatherings and 295 people when utilizing the indoor and outdoor
spaces.
