Why SkyBar is special ?
Perched on the 33rd floor of Traders Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, this perennial favourite of KL’s party people has emerged from its chrysalis with two gleaming new bars and revamped seating area. In the day time, the afternoon sun plays hide and seek with the blinds, brilliant shafts of light spearing into the calm, cool bar interior. Overhead, an extraordinary fan whirls lazily as you sip your mojito.
Experience the award-winning SkyBar, named “Best Malaysian Bar” by the 2007 Malaysia Tatler Society, as well as “Best Bar in Malaysia” and "BEST HOTELBar” by the readers of Expatriate Lifestyle's Best of Malaysia Awards for four consecutive years. You've never been to KL, unless you've been to SkyBar!
What to explore at SkyBar?
The rooftop nightclub is quite possibly the coolest venue on KL’s nightlife scene – the place to see and be seen at. It is recommended not only for its good location and giddying views over the city, but also its excellent drinks.
Airy and sexy, the centrepiece at Sky Bar is a pool that is bordered by ‘cabanas’ (large sunken alcoves with chaise longues) on one side, and a bar area with sofas and woven rattan high tables and bar stools on the other.
Grab a cabana to make the most of the full height windows and get the best views of KL city. The panorama from the bar area is no less impressive – a skylight overhead makes you feel like you are on top of the world, with KL’s famous twin towers clearly visible.
Sky Bar has no theme or overplayed concept, but this industrial-chic bar has definite character and feels like a secret club with a refined, sultry vibe to it.
Sky Bar has good food – sure, it is mostly finger food, such as spice-crusted calamari and vegetable spring rolls, but these snacks come in generous portions. Try the tasty and stomach-filling buffalo inferno wings and crispy barbecue beef ribs.
Though there is a variety of wines, beers and spirits, the cocktails are the real stars here: the bar’s signature drinks such as the tangy-tasting Selangor Sling or the sweet and fruity passion fruit-based Mata D’ Or. The best night to visit is Monday and Tuesdays when Sky Bar has good deals during their Retro Happy Hour
A must-visit if you are planning on hitting the nightclubs in KL, resident DJs spin techno music at Sky Bar on select nights. On other nights tunes alternate from jazz, easy listening and soft rock to modern pop hits, but it plays discreetly in the background, allowing for easy conversation.
