Great rooftop bars in Kuala Lumpur range from classy ristorantes to cocktail lounges, all nestled atop high-rise structures. Our favorites offer great ambience for those who want to sit back and watch the sun sink into the city horizon – with a drink in hand, of course.

    There’s no doubt about it – Kuala Lumpur is a vibrant, bustling city from sunrise to sunset. To gain a whole new appreciation for Malaysia’s capital, we recommend you get away from the busy streets and take in the view from a whole new angle – the rooftop bars.
