Chynablack Bar in Kuala Lumpur

Cocktail bar along Jalan Ampang

Chynablack is a 1920s-style Oriental cocktail bar located along Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur. Its unique selling point is the fact that it is a real feel-good bar with staff members who are friendly, jovial and will eagerly dance along when the music really gets going.

Sister bar to The Hill in Damansara Heights, the atmosphere at Chynablack is fun – pure and simple. Continuously flashing neon lights and beer barrels used as tables give the place a ‘happening’ Los Angeles nightclub ambiance, but the interior design is chic and classy with suede-covered love seats, dark wooden shutters, Chinese lanterns, candelabra chandeliers and red leather booths.

On the drinks front, an extensive variety of by-the-glass spirits is available, ranging from vodka, gin and tequila to cognac and champagne; the RM4088 bottle of 25-year old Glenmorangie single malt whiskey is the most expensive on the bottle list. Alternatively, you can try standard shooters (with funny names like the Horny Bull and Electric Kamikaze) at RM18 a go.

We highly recommend Chynablack’s cocktails – all very fruity-focused, creative and delicious. Our favourite is the lychee and rose Mojito, a sweet, sharp and refreshing mix of rose syrup, Belvedere vodka, mint and frozen lychee.


Chynablack has a private setting above The Pool in the all-white Nihonkan complex: there is a private elevator to take you upstairs, where you head through a wide corridor with lots of potted plants to get into the bar. Inside, the first sight that greets you is that of the blackjack and pool tables which at first glance make the place look like a casino.

At one end of the club is a small stage where live performances take place, round tables bundled in the centre of the room and lots of little nooks hidden by fringe curtains for intimate conversation. With an eclectic soundtrack (think R&B, top 40 hits and techno tunes), a sexy vibe and inventive cocktails this no-nonsense lounge is a great addition to Jalan Ampang’s nightlife scene.
