Sirocco bills itself as the world's highest alfresco restaurant. Located high up on the 63rd floor of State Tower, Sirocco offers the breezy views one might imagine of the Bangkok skyline. The menu is Italian and much of the fare is imported as appropriate. Prices are not for the casual night out, but the views of stars and city, the live jazz, and the splendid drinks make Sirocco good for special moments and romantic evenings. Expect crisp formal service and be sure to dress on the formal side as well. Be aware that especially outside of the dry season, the restaurant is at the mercy of the weather.
