SIX Cocktail Lounge, situated in Kuala Lumpur’s Bangsar suburb, is a trendy bar that serves an extensive array of whiskies, wines, beers, and creative cocktails all in some rather laidback settings. A great place for after-work drinks and casual gatherings, SIX draws a steady stream of mostly expats and locals staying in Bangsar and Petaling Jaya. Perched above La Creperie de Caroline along Jalan Telawi 3, SIX Cocktail Lounge is a quiet gem compared to most of Bangsar’s plethora of often overcrowded bars and pubs.
Holding up to 100 people, the spacious and fully air-conditioned lounge is presents a mix of high stools, dark wooden furnishings, and plush leather couches. Fronting the open bar is Imran Hossain, SIX’s award-winning mixologist, who concocts some deliciously unique creations for the more adventurous of drinkers, as well as a range of signature and classic cocktails for those that like to play it safe.
Out of six quirkily-named cocktails, we decide to indulge on its two crowd-favourites. First up is Sweet 6teen (RM36), a fragrant blend of bourbon, homemade cucumber syrup, Dom Benedict, and the classic Angosutra bitter, served with a generous sprinkling of fresh lavender buds. While its unique lavender flavour might not be everyone’s cup of tea, it has just the right amount of sweetness and booziness for a refreshing thirst quencher.
Our favourite SIX cocktail is the 6 Wrongs ‘Do’ Make A Right (RM36), a delightfully tropical cocktail consisting of dark Caribbean rum with a splash of Aperol and homemade grapefruit bitter, gula Melaka, tangy lime juice, and topped with green apple foam. Presented with a delicate fan-shaped design of green apple slices, this drink is a definite must-try.
SIX Cocktail Lounge also offers an impressive total of 22 whiskies and a good range of wines that are available by glass and bottle. Best of all, all drinks on the menu come in nett prices – a rarity that makes SIX Cocktail Lounge a standout from most night spots in Kuala Lumpur. Do note that SIX doesn’t serve food at the moment, though hungry guests can enjoy a tantalising array of sweet and savoury crepes from La Creperie De Caroline downstairs.
The easiest way to get to SIX Cocktail Lounge from Kuala Lumpur City Centre is via LRT: alight at the Bangsar stop and from there you can grab a taxi or take a 20-minute walk via Lorong Maarof. Ample parking spaces are also available in front of the bar.
With a winning combination of friendly staff, extensive drinks menu, an award-winning mixologist, and a very welcoming vibe, SIX Cocktail Lounge is all set to become a favourite hangout spot for locals and visitors alike when the sun sets in Bangsar.
