Do you like rooftop bars with an awesome view? Yes? Then this place is for you!
During my visit to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia I visited one of the coolest rooftop bars ever. Let me introduce you to The Heli Lounge Bar, a functioning Heli Pad by day and the coolest rooftop bar by night.
You can find the Heli Lounge on the 34th floor of the Menara building, next to the Raja Chalan Monorail station. The Lounge theme is aviation inspired and turns into a busy club by night. To visit the rooftop you are required to purchase a drink from the bar, Cocktails and Beer cost 30myr (roughly $10aud). I recommend the Frozen Strawberry Daiquiri, it goes down a treat in the hot Malaysian weather!
I unfortunately lost all my iPhone photos from this trip so this photo below is the only one I have of myself there.
Once you’ve made your purchase take the two flights of stairs to the 36th floor, where you’ll find tables and chairs and the most incredible 360 degree view of Kuala Lumpur, including the spectacular Petronas Towers.
The staff weren’t the friendliest and very pushy for you to continue purchasing drinks so if you’re on a tight budget drink slow.
I recommend arriving as soon as the bar opens at 6pm so you can beat the crowds as it gets very busy. It’s a great place to watch the sunset but everyone else has the same idea so you want to get there early to secure a table.
Entrance is free between 6pm-9pm, after which it becomes a nightclub.
Does the Heli Bar look like a place you’ll visit?
