Marini’s on 57

Shoot up to the 57th-floor inside the Petronas Towers to Kuala Lumpur’s highest rooftop bar. Not only are the views from the floor-to-ceiling windows some of the best in KL, but the interior exudes luxury from its core. With simple décor, high tables and lavish cushions, Marini’s attracts the rich, famous and influential. Join the fun and taste fine Italian cuisine with a glass of wine or a cocktail.

Mai Bar

The Tiki-themed bar in KL Sentral provides a colourful and relaxing environment to enjoy sunset cocktails. Located on the 30th floor of Aloft, the design creates a relaxing atmosphere, with a choice between chilling on pink bean bags or sitting at the tall tables. The long list of exotic cocktails should tempt guests, but the real appeal is the location and enjoying the Kuala Lumpur sparkle after dark.

Bridge Bar at G Tower Hotel

Picture sipping a cocktail while standing on a glass floor looking down into the depths below. That’s just one of the experiences available at Bridge Bar. Located in the G Tower Hotel’s 28th-floor, the lounge boasts stylish décor with comfortable sofas, wooden floors and ceiling mirrors. The background music complements the style and design of the bar to generate a cozy ambience. Diners can relax inside or sit on the outdoor terrace, with the glass platform. Not only does Bridge Bar rate as one of the best rooftop bars in Kuala Lumpur, it also makes an ideal place for a date and romantic evening.

Sky Bar Kuala Lumpur

Skybar features a typical view of the city’s skyline–but with a twist. This spot is geared towards relaxation. Inside Skybar on the 33rd floor of Trader’s Hotel guests will find a long swimming pool surrounded by private booths and day beds. Luxurious relaxation is the focus here. The views of the nearby Petronas Towers along with the high-quality cocktails are favourites.

Fuego @ Troika Sky Dining

Among the most exclusive rooftop restaurants in Kuala Lumpur, Fuego sits on the 24th floor inside Troika Sky Dining. Featuring an extensive menu of Latin American dishes, including Kuala Lumpur’s tastiest guacamole, tapas and churros and a long list of wine and cocktails, diners can expect a high-quality experience. Fuego gets busy, making reservations essential.

Nobu KL

Enjoy sushi in one of the best restaurants in KL

Nobu is an international chain specialising in sashimi, sushi and tempura. It recently opened its doors in Kuala Lumpur and quickly became one of Malaysia’s best sushi restaurants. Located on the 56th-floor of Menara Petronas 3, up to 25o diners can savour world-class Japanese cuisine overlooking the city through the floor-to-ceiling windows. Nobu KL often features on lists of the most exclusive rooftop restaurants in Kuala Lumpur.


A great view of Petronas Towers while enjoying your meal

The Grand Hyatt in KLCC hosts a 38th-floor restaurant called Thirty8. With large floor-to-ceiling windows providing 360-degree views of Kuala Lumpur, and a menu filled with Asian and Western dishes, this bar offers both class and variety. Diners can select from an extensive drinks menu serving rare wines and cocktails, or just order a cold beer. The highlights of Thirty8 include the food, the exclusivity and the view of the Petronas Towers.

Subak Restaurant

Subak offers a different kind of rooftop experience in Kuala Lumpur. Rather than overlooking the city, this restaurant is next to virgin rainforest, providing a sanctuary from the noise and chaos. With a Balinese style, the menu offers traditional Malaysian food as well as Western dishes at relatively affordable prices. Subak promises to live up to any expectations for a quieter culinary experience.

Dinner in the Sky

According to Forbes, Dinner in the Sky is one of the more unusual restaurants in the world, and the only one of its kind in Malaysia. A crane lifts the table up to 50 metres (164 feet) into the sky. With a three-course meal prepared at the Sheraton Imperial and served by waiters along with live entertainment, dining here promises to be an unforgettable meal in Kuala Lumpur. If this incredible experience sounds appealing, tickets are available on their website or at the Dinner in the Sky outlet in Bukit Bintang.
