Loung­ing at Al­ti­tude

A unique kind of so­phis­ti­ca­tion high above Kuala Lumpur awaits the dis­cern­ing.

Golf Digest (Malaysia) - - The Golf Life -

arini’s on 57 is ar­guably Kuala Lumpur’s most pop­u­lar bar at al­ti­tude and with its prime lo­ca­tion im­me­di­ately ad­ja­cent to the city’s land­mark Petronas Twin Tow­ers, there’s prob­a­bly no bet­ter view of the city than at the sum­mit of what is known as Me­nara Three Petronas.

How­ever, not all parts of Marini’s on 57 are as well known as the pop­u­lar main bar with its floor to ceil­ing panoramic win­dows over­look­ing the Twin Tow­ers. Marini’s Lounge (Whisky and Cigar) is an in­ti­mate and semipri­vate in­ner sanc­tum with views over­look­ing Me­nara KL.

Ma pri­vate English men’s club. It’s not that this is an ex­clu­sive do­main for men but the deep leather chairs and a bar wall of whisky lends them­selves to a place to sit, chat and con­duct busi­ness. No doubt this is what hap­pens here too but it’s also an ex­cel­lent venue for those who en­joy a pre­mium bev­er­age in plush sur­round­ings while hold­ing a con­ver­sa­tion that doesn’t com­pete with the back­ground mu­sic which at Marini’s Lounge is a se­lec­tion of just dis­cernible jazz and Latin tunes.

With its el­e­vated po­si­tion over­look­ing down­town KL and pres­ti­gious sur­round­ings Marini’s Lounge is a per­fect lo­ca­tion for seal­ing a deal, cel­e­brat­ing and, for im­press­ing some­one. Out-of-town­ers will be favourably dis­posed should you take them here to in­tro­duce them to the vi­brant city that KL is. golfdi­gest­malaysia
