Great views from the this bar at the top of the Porn Ping building near Kalare Centre, particularly at night. Unfortunately it ends there. The food (mainly Thai) is well below average for Chiang Mai, and the service is slow and poor. Go up there for the views and photos, but don't stay.

We have watched some beautiful sunsets here over the years. You can get 360 degree views of this beautiful city. Located on the roof of the PornPing Hotel you take the elevator to the 20th floor and then up some steps to the roof. Photographers come here just for the amazing shots at dusk as the sun sets behind Doi... More

The Blue Bat situated on the rooftop of Pornping Tower would have some of the best night time views over Chiang Mai. A lovely spot to start the night with a drink or two. The band was mellow, and there was a cool breeze on what was a very hot day. Unfortunately, the air became a little smokey.

The Blue Bat is an open air restaurant on the top floor of the pornping Tower and enjoys great views across the city. There is also a competent and unobtrusive 3 piece band which makes for a nice ambience. But the food was poor, over priced and not as described on the menu. Aso,as another reviewer has pointed out it... More

We did not enjoy the food but the view was amazing. Three of us visited and no one enjoyed the food. The taste was ordinary and the meat chewy. Not a good experience at all

Positives: The views here are fantastic - you can see all of Chiang Mai from 360 degrees. The live music is also nice. This is what warrants my two stars, everything else was terrible. Firstly they didn't stock Diet Coke..ok, not a huge deal but that's a pretty mainstream drink when catering to westerners. One starter arrived. It was pork... More

Lovely restaurant and amazing 360 degree view of Chiang Mai city. Live band was quite entertaining, we very much enjoyed their own interpretation and pronunciation of well known western tunes!

Good view but no service at all. Waitress is not accommodating. Waiters and waitresses just walk around.

We celebrated my husband's birthday and threw another party for a friend here. The view is nice and it's cool and breezy at night. It's not expensive and they make good, tender, tasty beef bbq (skewers).
