Hyatt Regency Bangkok has opened its three-level rooftop bar with the general manager hanging high above guests and at the end of a harness.
It’s not every day that we see a general manager of a hotel jump from the heights of a skyscraper to welcome guests at a new rooftop bar — but Sammy Carolus did just that in Bangkok the other week.
Designed by the Japanese design firm Super Potato, the Hyatt Regency Bangkok’s new Spectrum Lounge & Bar features three different levels with an expansive lounge and intimate spaces.
Given the venue’s name, lighting plays a pivotal role in setting the scene. The study and meeting room also has its own individual stage control, while the lobby space plays with a changing projection that can be adapted to a particular event.
“This story is told through the design pieces on display”
“The inspiration behind the new venue is a jet-setting couple, who have created a soulful, welcoming space to entertain guests,” explained Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit’s GM, Sammy Carolus. “This story is told through the design pieces on display, ranging from Thai art to musical instruments, and the variety of distinct areas within the venue, like you’d find in a luxury penthouse.”
With a total space of 280 square meters (over 3,000 square feet), Spectrum can host 80 guests for indoor gatherings and 295 people when utilising the indoor and outdoor spaces.
“Before Spectrum, you could not get this type of ambience in Bangkok,” said Super Potato’s vice president, Norihiko Shinya. “It’s hard to compare this with any other rooftop bar in the area as this type of space is quite special to have in the middle of downtown.”
