Living the High Life: Rangoon’s Best Rooftop Bars

By THE IRRAWADDY 31 March 2017 Rangoon’s expat hipster enclave of Sanchaung is home to Penthouse, an upscale rooftop bar situated eight floors above the corner of People’s Park. Penthouse boasts funky design, attentive staff, an extensive menu, and regular visits from international DJs. It is a strong contender for the award of swankiest rooftop in the city. Half of the rooftop itself is inside, providing a welcome refuge from Rangoon’s famous rain/heat. Outside, you’ll have to choose your seat wisely as only a handful offer that coveted Shwedagon Pagoda view. Though the heavy beat of house music has permeated all seats in the establishment each time The Irrawaddy has visited. The menu is in the upper echelons of Rangoon dining, with prices to match. There’s lobster, oyster, and tenderloin steak to be washed down with wines from all corners of the globe and perfectly mixed classic cocktails. Parkside One Building, 271-273 Bagaya Road, Sanchaung Township
