Heli Lounge Bar
A helipad by day and bar by night? Yes, that’s exactly what Heli
Lounge Bar is all about. When you’ve finally accomplished climbing a
flight of stairs up to the Heli Lounge, you’ll find yourself standing
out in the open surrounded by 360 degree views of KL and some mismatched
furniture. Downstairs, there's a club with a Resident DJ and
34th floor, Menara KH, Jalan Sultan Ismail, 50250 Kuala Lumpur, (03 2110 5034), Mon-Wed 6pm-12am, Thu 6pm-2am, Fri-Sat 6pm-3am.
View Rooftop Bar
View Rooftop Bar, located in G Tower, presents a view overlooking the
city of KL, Ampang Hills and the Titiwangsa mountain range. There are
three rooms to choose from: the GH Mumm Champagne Room, the Glenlivet
single malt lounge and Al Fresco ABSOLUT Bar. While the wooden decked
balcony is open air, parties can rage on under cover, rain or shine.
G Tower, 199 Jalan Tun Razak, 50400 Kuala Lumpur, Federal
Territory of Kuala Lumpur, (03 2168 1881), Sun-Thu 5pm-1am, Fri-Sat

Marini’s on 57
KL's highest rooftop bar, Marini’s on 57, sit within Menara 3 of the
Petronas Towers, shoulder to shoulder with the Twin Towers. There are
three venues – Italian fine dining, a lounge with a vast selection of
cigars and single malt whiskey and a bar with an in-house DJ spinning
throughout the night. The bar has a dress policy, so scrub up for the
Level 57, Menara 3 Petronas, KLCC, 50088 Kuala Lumpur (03 2161 2880), Mon-Sun 7pm to 11pm.
Aristo Roof Garden @ Zouk
Zouk is known for their upscale clubbing scene. A few years ago, they
revamped Aristo Roof Garden, creating a zen mood for a more laid-back
drink in view of KL Tower and KLCC. With regular themed nights and
surprisingly good value drinks promotions, Aristo makes up in creativity
what it lacks in height.
113 Jalan Ampang, 50450 Kuala Lumpur, Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur, (03 2171 1997), Mon 5pm – 1am, Tue - Sat 5pm – 3am.
Stratosphere @ The Roof
Stratosphere is another helipad-turned-bar, but with a modern garden
vibe. The grassy roof of First Avenue is adorned with glowing,
futuristic fixtures at night. Instead of overlooking the city of KL,
Stratosphere looks over Petaling Jaya. If the elements aren't friendly,
book a meal instead at The Signature restaurant which is also part of
First Avenue, Bandar Utama, 47800 Petaling Jaya, (012 691 0628) Wed-Sat, 6.30pm-2am.
