  • 10 Great Rooftop Bars in KL

    Rooftop Bars with Panaromic Views of Kuala Lumpur

    There’s no doubt about it – Kuala Lumpur is a vibrant, bustling city from sunrise to sunset. To gain a whole new appreciation for Malaysia’s capital, we recommend you get away from the busy streets and take in the view from a whole new angle – the rooftops.

    Best of all, Kuala Lumpur is home to numerous nocturnal hotspots, ranging from classy ristorantes to cocktail lounges, that are nestled atop high-rise structures. Our 10 Great Rooftop Bars in Kuala Lumpur offer great ambience for those who want to sit back and watch the sun set below the city horizon - with a drink in hand, of course.

    Marini’s on 57 is an exclusive Italian ristorante set on the 57th floor of Petronas Tower 3 (adjacent to Suria KLCC). It is divided into three sections, with a dining area, a bar with art deco furniture and neon lights, and a Havana-esque lounge with brown leather sofas. Paintings from Italian artist, Rosalba Mangione hang on the walls, while floor-to-ceiling windows and a glass roof provide great views of Kuala Lumpur. Read More...
