Skylounge @ The Ascott Kuala Lumpur


Grab an elevator ride to The Ascott's 22nd floor for nice nibbles and cocktails with the proverbial bird's-eye view of our city.


Skylounge isn't as glitzy as SkyBar or Luna Bar, but it's better suited for a casual evening. Plus, the place is well-hidden, so it's perfect for a secret rendezvous.


Poached shrimp with lettuce, melon balls & cocktail sauce. Fresh & tangy.


Mesclun salad with smoked salmon, croutons & tomatoes. A hearty serving.


Irish Coffee (John Jameson, coffee) & Granny Smith Mojito (apple-infused rum, fresh green apple, mint leaves, soda).


Bramble (gin, creme de cassis, fresh lemon juice) & Orange Martini (gin, cointreau, orange marmalade, lemon juice).








Skylounge,
Level 22, The Ascott.

  13. Hi,

    Would like to know what type of cuisine they have and what are the standard price there?
    Is it I can have a nice view of KL by have a seat near the window/balcony area?

    ReplyDelete
  14. cupcakes: it's mostly simple western cuisine, ranging from salads to sandwiches to pasta. a meal for two people should total about rm50-80 without drinks. and yes, u'll get a good view of kl.

  15. Beside sandwishes and pasta, did they have heavy meal like chop? ..Average how much I need to spend for a drinks??? RM 20 per drinks?? Feel like wanna visit next week

    ReplyDelete
  16. cupcakes: yes, there are heavier meals, including lamb and chicken. if u order alcoholic drinks, then it'll cost more than rm20.

  17. Hi Sean, can I know how to get access into skylounge from the carpark??

    I mean where I should park? I notice that the first floor of the parking floor dont have lift to go up. Isit just park at 2nd or 3rd floor and straight go to level 22 from the parking area?? Or need to go to G Floor first?

    Isit the atmosphere is very quiet? Do they play music?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Cupcakes: yeah, u can park anywhere, but u need to go through the ground floor security first, and they'll get someone to bring u up to the lounge,. It's quite quiet if u r there early in the evening ... They have some soft music, but it's not really noticeable...
