If KL has one thing in common with London, it’s the grey sky — and Greyskymorning knows it. Could this be why they decided on glass-panelled walls and golden chandeliers? Natural light filters in though the glass, while the chandelier substitutes for the sun. We approve.

This pretty little cafe is a mix of old, new, and eccentric. The decor will make you think you’re back in a George Town-style colonial shophouse, with air wells, trees built into walls (or is it the way round?), and eclectic selected furniture. Grub’s tasty, too.

Nothing pseudo about Sudo Brew — this place is the real deal for digital nomads. The casual design with brick elements blends together the best of work and chill time. And if you’re the anti-social kind of nomad, there are individual work stations with adjustable lamps.
