Brewski is the rooftop craft beer bar on the 30th Floor of the Radisson Blu Plaza hotel, located on the corner of Sukhumvit Road and Sukhumvit Soi 27, less than ten minutes walk from the Asoke BTS Station or Sukhumvit MRT Station.
From Sukhumvit MRT Station, take Exit 2 up to street level. As soon as you reach the top of the escalator at street level, take an IMMEDIATE hard left, and climb the few steps up to enter the passageway that goes back into Interchange 21 Tower. In photo below, Exit 2 from MRT is on left, passageway into Interchange Tower is at right.
You will pass a series of Citibank ATM machines. As soon as you are past the ATM’s, turn right through the sliding glass doors and descend the stairs, bearing left – go toward and to the right of the Dunkin Donuts stand.
Proceed down the tunnel for 200 meters, then climb a few steps to the exit on Sukhumvit Soi 23. Turn right, and walk 150 meters to Sukhumvit Road, then turn left in front of Jasmine City Hotel.
If you travel instead via BTS to Asoke Station, exit the Station via Exit 6 – this will take you about 200 meters across and above the Asoke/Sukhumvit Intersection. As you near the far end, turn left toward Interchange Tower 21, and then bear left to use the Exit stairs to descend to street level:
At street level you will walk right into a moto-taxi station. Turn left, and walk 150 meters past the Shell petrol station, and the cross Soi 23, which will put you in front of the Jasmin City Hotel.
From the sidewalk in front of the Jasmine City Hotel, walk east behind the bus stop and to the left of the stairs that descend from a pedestrian overpass, cross Soi 25, and continue ahead. Within about 100 meters, before you reach Soi 27, the Radisson Blu Plaza hotel will appear on your left. Walk up the driveway and climb the light-colored steps to the hotel foyer,and the enter the hotel. Proceed straight ahead, and slightly to your left, pass in front of the check-in desk, and proceed to the left rear corner of the lobby, which is a passageway back to the elevators. When you enter a lift, you will see:
Push the red button, and the lift takes you to the 30th floor. Exit the lift, turn right, and walk toward the light:
Once you emerge, if you walk to the rail, you are looking at:
Or, at night:
If you look to your left, you see:
Walk that way, and you will reach the point where you can look to your left, and see the bar:
The draft beer taps, close up:
Bottled beers are in coolers down low, behind the bar:
They normally have 12 draft beers on tap. The day that I stopped in, they had only 11 draft beers: about a third were Belgian beers – two Vedetts, and two La Chouffs – then there were Rogue Dead Guy and Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar, Mahanakorn White Ale, Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA, a bourbon barrel stout, a Zeffer Cider from New Zealand, and a Pale Ale from Little Creatures in Australia.
They also have about 60 bottled craft beers – the following two menus display most — but not all of them:
An important note on prices:
So – no ++. You pay only what you see on the price list.
They also offer food. Upon arrival, each guest is served a small complimentary bowl of spice peanuts.
They have daily specials:
And – they also have a regular bar menu:
They appeared to be able to seat about 100 people. Seats along the bar are non-smoking – everywhere else smoking is OK, and there were plenty of ashtrays.
Near the center of the rooftop, there is a doorway in front of a small hut that covers a stairway that descends to the Brewski Executive Lounge that is located indoors, on the 29th floor.
I spoke to the bar supervisor, Khun Dai, and he indicated that rainy season is a problem for them. Because of high winds, they cannot put up umbrellas. They have a system of tarps that can pulled straight down from the roof over the bar, to isolate the bar from a storm – but this would cut seating to maybe 15 customers seated, or 25 customers standing.
The music here is played a bit louder than in most bars, because of the open space – it was very well chosen pop music of the past 15-20 years. Of all craft beer bars that I have visited, this one had the best chosen playlist, in my opinion.
Two video screens above the bar, generally tuned to sporting events.
Toilets are back immediately adjacent to the passageway in from the left/elevator lobby:
Toilets were modern and spotless, but the men’s room had only one urinal, and one sit down toilet.
Service here was very good – the staff are attentive, and attractive – and they are knowledgeable about craft beers.
Bar supervisor Khun Dai reported that clientele is about evenly split between Thais and foreigners – with local expats significantly outnumbering hotel visitors.
The hotel offers parking.
You could tell that this was a five-star hotel. It had a feeling of classiness.
