View Rooftop Bar

An eagle's nest of a bar, with a soaring 29th-floor panorama of KL's skyline.

View opened this week, supplying an excellent escape from the city's evening traffic nightmare. It's a spacious hangout, split into three sections: an alfresco bar ...

... a whiskey lounge ...

... and a champagne room.

One highlight: customers are encouraged to customize their own cocktails. Simply name your choice of spirits _ vodka, gin, tequila, rum, etc _ then inform the resident mixologist whether you'd like it soft, silky, smooth or crunchy. For a creative twist, your own selection of herbs, spices & fresh fruits can also be thrown into the mix.

Our concoction was conservative but memorable: a creamy whiskey cocktail, laced with cinnamon for an aromatic potion of pleasure.

Mary's Melon (42Below Manuka Honey, muddled honeydew melon, De Kuypers melon liquor, rosemary syrup, vanilla liquor) & South China Sea Punch (Falernum almond-ginger syrup, passion fruit, orange, lime, Havana Club Rum).
