View Rooftop Bar at G Tower Hotel KLCC
One Of Kuala Lumpur's Best Rooftop Bars0
View Rooftop Bar is a nightclub with three distinct sections on the 29th floor of G Tower Hotel KL. A popular after-work bar, from its outdoor deck you can see the famous Petronas Twin Towers, Ampang Hills and the Titiwangsa mountain range.
People do not just come to the cool and classy View Rooftop Bar for the views or the luxury environment – they also come for the great cocktails and music. With a laidback feel to it, it has a bit of something for everyone, combining elements of an al fresco bar, champagne room and whisky lounge.
The Al Fresco Bar, Champagne Room and Whisky Lounge
By far the best seats in the house are at the al fresco bar. The no-fuss, airy wooden terrace beside the long bar offers a fantastic panorama of the city. Here, the décor is very NYC chic, with white and beige oversized sofas and lots of potted plants.
Then there are the two stylish and modern indoor bars. The furnishings in the Champagne Room are modern but minimal, with standing tables by the bar and light panels in the walls that change colour and wash the place in neon green as well as blue and pink light, giving it a futuristic feel.
Music & Drinks
The music alternates between jazz and easy listening favourites in the early evenings to techno and pop as the night wears on. There is a strict dress code here (no sneakers or ripped jeans) but the club’s friendly and down-to-earth service has you feeling completely at ease.
Besides wines, beers and spirits, View Rooftop Bar has a neat list of inventive cocktails, like the teh tarik cocktail – a sweet creation with a smooth, milky taste that is very refreshing. For more traditional cocktails, the Absolut south beach (a lemon-infused cocktail that is really sour) and the Absolut pineapple cardamom martini, which is sweet and sour with a slightly-spicy kick to it, come highly recommended.
Meanwhile, the Whisky Lounge has oversized leather sofas that make this area a great place to chill out at for a while with a cocktail in hand. There is an artistic centrepiece here – the Glenlivet Spiral (an arrangement of whisky bottles hanging from the ceiling in the shape of a corkscrew) – that makes for a great photo.
