The cocktail bar scene in KL doesn’t seem to be running dry anytime soon, and we’re not-so-secretly happy about that. Moving on from hidden bars, we see a rising trend in specialist bars, especially gin bars. The scene also doesn’t fall short of experimental bars that aren’t afraid to push the boundaries of flavour — shiitake mushroom-infused liquor from Birch, anyone?
What these new bars in KL have in common, however, are interesting concepts and — more importantly — a solid repertoire of tipples. There’s something for every kind of drinking enthusiast out there. If you’re into adventure and love sussing out hidden bars decorated with neon signs, we’ve got one in our list. Or perhaps you crave a swanky drinking experience at the latest, trendiest, most upscale bar with high ceilings and pulsating lights — we’ve got that too. And if all you want is a good drink with a hip crowd in a cool space, scroll down for some suggestions.
With this list of 5 new bars in KL, we’re pretty sure your Friday night and weekend is all sorted out. Don’t forget to fuel up on some good food beforehand — perhaps our recommendation of new restaurants to dine at in KL this month will help you out.
