Nest 1-1Nest is perched on the roof surrounded by the cityscape

Nest rooftop lounge, located in the contemporary Novotel Fenix Hotel off of Ploenchit Road on Soi 11, with Q Bar and Bed Supper Club in close proximity. It is popular with both hotel guests and a trendy crowd of locals, alternatively the hotel bar Flow has an interesting array of drinks on its menu. Nest is one of the most recent rooftop venues to emerge on the Bangkok scene, it is an open-air space that takes up the roof of the Hotel Fenix with a retractable cover to enjoy a spectacular 360-degree view of the city literally surrounding you, with part of the space devoted to sandy surfaces, beach chairs and chaise lounges. Guests can sit back on couches or the nest-style wicker beds and enjoy a variety of drinks and cocktails.

I ordered a Batida de limão Leblon made with Cachaça and lime (named after a beach suburb close to Cococabana where I stayed with friends at one time). It is the best rendition I have tasted outside of Rio on one visit, and suffered on another try.
