Meal with a view: Kuala Lumpur’s best sky-high dining experiences

Are you in an immediate need for a mesmerising pick-me-up?

Well, you know what they say; when you are feeling down, the best way is to look up.

With an abundance of tall skyscrapers located in the heart of the city, it’s not hard to look for a place where you can wine and dine with the pretty Kuala Lumpur skyline as a backdrop.

But to make things easier for you, here’s a list of some of the best and the grandest sky-high dining experiences money can buy in Kuala Lumpur.

Troika Sky Dining

Situated within Tower B of the Troika, you will be spoilt for choices here at Troika Sky Dining. This beautiful establishment features four distinctive sections: Fuego which serves tapas, Italian inspired Strato, fusion-oriented Cantoloupe and Claret which is a wine bar. You can choose to taste the flavors of the world at Cantaloupe or simply sip on your favourite drink at Claret – all while overlooking the industrial skyline of Kuala Lumpur. 

Marini’s on 57
If you are looking for the best view of Kuala Lumpur’s skyline, head on over to Marini’s on 57, which claims to be Malaysia’s highest rooftop bar, that also doubles as an Italian restaurant and cigar lounge. Take a sip of their signature cocktails or premium champagnes with your loved ones, as you enjoy the beautiful sight of the Twin Towers right beside you. However, should you plan to dine here, do take note of their strict formal attire dress code.

Heli Lounge Bar
Like the others mentioned in this list, this restaurant has become a popular option for those seeking a sky dining experience, though unlike the others, this one comes with a slight twist. Located strategically in the middle of the buzzing city, Heli Lounge Bar offers its patrons with a one of kind al-fresco experience to absorb the 360° panoramic view around them. As the name suggests, here you can enjoy your delicious meal while dining on an actual helipad (!!) on top of Menara KH.

The Roof
The Roof has quickly grown a reputation for being one of the finest luxury bars in the Klang Valley region, which features its now rather iconic infinity grassed helipad at Stratosphere. Be it a romantic date with your significant other, or perhaps just a fun night out with friends, The Roof seeks to cater to any of your intended desires through their various outlets which are designed distinctively to present you with a classy yet unique experience.

Dinner in the Sky
When we talk about sky dining, usually we mean a meal with a magnificent view of the skyline around us. However, this particularly unusual restaurant took to the literal meaning of sky high dining. Marking its first stop in South East Asia after having travelled to over 40 countries, Dinner in the Sky allows customers to enjoy a meal, courtesy of Hilton KL while being suspended in the air overlooking the gorgeous Kuala Lumpur view. However, Dinner in the Sky is sort of like a seasonal thing, so be sure to check out their website to see when they are coming back.
