Sometimes, we all need a little pick-me-up after a long and hectic week and if you’re living around the city, it can be quite difficult to find a sanctuary that you can take pleasure in and let loose for the weekends. Given that you’re already here, why not enjoy the best fixation Kuala Lumpur has to offer? We’re talking about the wondrous and iconic view of the KL skyline that is often a must-see for all travellers who visit our beloved city. As Malaysians ourselves, we believe that you shouldn’t be missing out! Here are our suggestions for some of the best bar/restaurants if you want a top-floor view while enjoying your bites and drinks.

 

Helipad @ Heli Lounge Bar

Currently labeled as Kuala Lumpur’s best kept secret, the Helipad is merely two flights of stairs above the 34th floor of Menara KH, located strategically in the middle of the city. Although it is a little on the pricier side, we think that it offers, by far, the best 360° panoramic view of the entire Kuala Lumpur skyline. The Helipad is also unplugged and al fresco, making it the perfect place to enjoy the peace and quiet of the city while sipping on their fine selection of drinks and mocktails.
