Bangkok- Drinks at a riverside swanky bar before chow-ing?

My husband and I will be in Bangkok just one night- his birthday! We both love great street food
and I think the stalls in the Saochingcha district sound perfect for dinner but I'd like to take him
for a fabulous cocktail (or two) beforehand. We're staying at the Navalai Riverside on Pra Artith
and would like somewhere fairly close that we might get to on foot or ferry- one of the fancy hotel bars (like Shangri La or Oriental) perhaps? Thanks in advance.

  1. The Bamboo Bar at the Oriental is one of the classic saloons of the world along with the Hemingway bar at the Ritz in Paris, and the rooftop bar at the Rex Hotel in Saigon.

    Go there, have a gin and tonic, and know that you part of drinking history.
