Best rooftop bars and clubs in 2013

Lets raise our glasses to the best in rooftop bars and clubs in the past year! 2013 has seen the opening of quite a few of our favourite hangouts. Here’s where its at!

The Roof
The Roof is one of the most exciting openings this year housing five different outlets under its “Roof”. The bar Stratosphere has the best view of out the lot as it’s located on top of a helipad. Then there is Signature, a casual lounge for cocktails and fusion cuisine. Those in the mood for some dancing can do it at Play where famous rapper Lil Jon recently performed. Score is their sports bar which showcases major events and Malt and Leaf is the more exclusive one for the cigar smoking whisky fans in us. The Roof looks really promising and certainly a place we’ll be spending time in 2014!

Address: Sky Level, 1 First Avenue, Bandar Utama, 47800 Petaling Jaya

Heli lounge Bar
The Heli lounge bar is one of the new additions to KLs skyline where one can sit and enjoy a 360 view of the Klang Valley. There are two parts to the place, an actual helipad on the roof and a bar on the 34th floor of Menara KH. If you reach here by 6 in the evening you can catch a stunning view of the sunset which is definitely Instagram worthy! This is certainly an urban adventure not to be missed.

Address: 34th floor, Menara KH, Jalan Sultan Ismail, KL kitchen+bar
Located on Changkat, amongst bars left right and center Twenty One surprises. TwentyOne Kitchen+bar does not expect such a place to produce food so good. Great drinks and good food Twenty One is one of our favorite new spots in 2013!

Address: 20-1, Changkat Bukit Bintang, KL.

Providence Kuala Lumpur is one of the most exclusive clubs in KL. If you want a classy night free from yuppie-club-kids or hipsters book a table here. They have a light feature installation on the ceiling of the club which is the first and largest of its kind in Southeast Asia. They don’t offer bottle promotions however if you do feel like spending they have deals like 50 bottles of Moët & Chandon for RM18,500 or ten bottles of Dom Pérignon for RM11,000. So, you get the picture.

Address: The Intermark, 182 Jalan Tun Razak, Kuala Lumpur.

The Circus has it all- a strategic location in Pavilion, an extensive menu and a cocktail lounge with over 60 different cocktails to boot. They seem equipped to cater to most GTs from business lunches to parties.

Address: Lot C3.10.01b, Level 3, Fashion Avenue, Pavilion, 168, Jalan Bukit Bintang, KL.
