Description: Every aspect of Distil reflects purity in its most elementary form. On offer is a choice of the most premium and authentic malt whiskies, vodkas and Cognacs.A unique feature of Distil is the Oyster Bar. Pink Diamond Oysters, Exclusive Petrossian Caviar and fresh sushi and sashimi present a delightful selection, along with the finest champagnes and wines from a walk-in wine cellar. Hand-rolled authentic Cuban Cigars are yours to enjoy together with drinks in the adjoining open-air Cigar Terrace. Enjoy the company of the cool set at this hottest chill out spot in Bangkok.The chosen venue for the high flyers and for those of us craving a place to enjoy that one cigar amidst the perfect surrounding, Distil stands out in this aspect alone. Throw in the oysters and caviar, we move up one notch.

Our intention was to go to the Sky Bar (which we did briefly) but preferred Distil instead. There is seating inside and out with comfy beds and the view is amazing. The cocktails are expensive but they aren't your average mai tai. The staff informed us about the construction and concept behind each one. I had a Sinor at 600 baht, it was a spin on a margarita with chilli ice cubes! Nibbles were provided throughout and the staff were very bubbly and professional.

Ended up here after the high altitude porch outside (The imaginatively named Sky Bar) was a bit of a mob scene...DJ was great...cocktails great ( and very inventive) ...champagne ( like every where else in Thailand) obscenely priced....but in the end, fun for a bit and we checked it off the list...

OK, so you are here in Bangkok, and you want to tell your friends back home that you went to this place where the Hangover Two film was made...but $20 for an OK Martini? I guess so, but I prefer the rooftop bar at the Banyan Tree Hotel that is a 10 minute cab ride away. That place is magical, this place is kinda Vegas...and the drinks are not great, so why? Yes, the view is amazing, but it's full of tourists and it's a 2 minute thrill. I don't know...for my money I'd rather go on a river taxi ride to a temple or to Harmonique and have a wonderful dinner, nice and generous cocktails and have it all for the price of my one Berrytini at Distil...but just sayin'!

It was expensive, but they know their drinks. The atmosphere is relaxed and the view breathtaking. Worth a visit!

We went to Distil after spending some time at the Sky Bar and we actually preferred this. For starters you can sit down [both outdoor and indoor] and they serve great food. Which makes this a place where you can spend the entire evening. Next time i'm at the Lebua will definitely spend more time here.
