Skybar Just Got a Whole Lot Sexier

Aside from looking forward to Wednesday Ladies Night and Throwback Sunday Jams at your favourite bar or club, it is only ok to say you’ve officially partied when you have at least been to ONE sky bar. Criterias include placed on a level above 20 floors, serves the best cocktails and drinks and for bonus point purposes: has a pool that overlooks the city skyline.

And of course it would not be Edition KLFW if we don’t fulfil the criterias mentioned. Thanks to well duh, us, we have found the best sky bar in KL city to officiate and check off your party list. Perched on the 33rd floor of Traders Hotel, this go-to social scene just got a sexy and hot makeover with two gleaming new bars, a revamped seating area and culinary bay for food preparation. With its signature 26-m long pool remains as the undisputed centrepiece of SkyBar, it sets itself apart from all the other “rooftop” bars in Malaysia. In the day time, soak in the sheer sunny ambience through blinds, brilliant shaft of light spearing into the calm and cool bar interior. Don’t worry about getting sweaty cause you’ll have the Big Ass fan to thank for breezy wind while sipping on a refreshing Mojito.

As the sun sets into night time, couples in their fancy frocks and dapper suits sink into the plush cushions of the sofas to feast their eyes on the breath-taking views of the glittery KL skyline with non-other than the iconic Petronas Twin Tower as the centrepiece.

For casual party goers and those popping over after a long day at work, high chairs and table by the pool would be the best spot especially when catching up with friends. Sip on their signature cocktails as the gentle breeze from the open windows cool yourselves from the hot Malaysian weather. Feeling munchy? Nibble on some delectable morsels from the new tapas menu.

The two new lightup bars glow with bottles of the finest spirits while hidden in the fridges, bottles of champagne nestle to Sauvignon Blanc. KL’s best mixologists are in a measuring, tippling, muddling and pouring frenzy. Enjoy the refreshing zingy frozen margarita that’s subtly scented with lime or the sublime vodka-based Lychee Rose, made with lychee liqueur, lychee syrup and rose syrup. A SkyBar would not be complete without upbeat music as it gives way to classic dance as the night goes on and revelries are tuned up a notch as the people stop watching and come out to play. Music is in good hands with the place hosting international DJs from time to time.

No plans this weekend? Well, now you do. Head over to the award-winning SkyBar which was also named “Best Malaysia Bar” in the 2007 edition of the prestigious Malaysia Tatler Society as well as being voted by readers of Expatriate Lifestyle as “Best Bar in Malaysia” and “Best Hotel Bar” in the Best of Malaysia awards for three consecutive years. Traders Hotel is also one of the supporting hotel partners for Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week.

SkyBar has seating for 280 and standing room for 310. It is open from 10:00am to 1:00am, Sunday to Thursday, and from 10:00am to 3:00am Friday, Saturday and the evening before public holidays.
