The first thing you ar­rive to when you step out of the lifts at Troika Sky Din­ing is Claret Wine Bar. Its sleek and min­i­mal decor by Mel­bourne In­te­rior De­sign­ers Hecker Guthrie takes you far­away from the wine bars of dark wood pan­el­ing, oak bar­rels and used corks.

HG has put to­gether a space of quiet so­phis­ti­ca­tion and with their clever de­sign and im­pec­ca­ble taste has jux­ta­posed a Carara mar­ble bar, black pantry sta­tions and grey stone floors with cool mint vel­vet so­fas, hounds tooth arm­chairs and om­bre car­pets. Claret is an el­e­gant bar with 9me­ter win­dows that over­look the city’s sky­line and plenty of cozy nooks and cor­ners for a per­son to re­lax with a glass of wine.

Claret brings to­gether a cu­rated list of wines from ar­ti­san vine­yards en­coun­tered dur­ing the owner’s trav­els in France. Their main fo­cus are on pro­duc­ers of in­tegrity who are pas­sion­ate about their craft and are com­mit­ted to pro­duc­ing wines that ex­press the ter­roir, posess pu­rity of fruit and dis­tinct va­ri­etal character.

At Claret you will find wines from the Loire, South West, Rhone Langue­doc-Rousil­lon, Jura, Cor­sica , Al­sace and Cham­pagne. You will also find pro­duc­ers like Le Clos des Fées, Do­maine Pla­geoles , Le Sang des Cail­loux, Cather­ine & Pierre Bre­ton, Tendil et Lom­bardi , Do­maine Vielle Juli­enne, Pithon Paillé and Do­maine Henry Pellé.

Claret con­ducts reg­u­lar tast­ings of the ex­pected and the un­ex­pected. Please check their web­site for the lat­est. Troika Sky Din­ing, Level 23A, Tower B, The Troika, 19 Per­siaran KLCC, KL (03 2162 0886/www.troikasky­din­ing. com).
