Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral,
Set in KL’s new central business and transportation hub, Aloft KL Sentral is the largest of the Aloft hotels worldwide, and plays host to its trademark bar, the W XYZ. Designed for guests to meet, mix and mingle, W XYZ Bar is certainly one of the trendiest hang out spots in town.
Since the opening of its doors, W XYZ Bar has been enhancing the flavours of its cocktails by aging them in their very own, specially imported, five-litre charred oak barrels. A prime example of W XYZ’s aging practice can be identified in the Smoky Oak Barrel Manhattan cocktail, served on the rocks, with the added zest of orange peel, following an aging process alongside bourbon whiskey, sweet vermouth and Angostura bitters. In addition, the bartenders also whip up classic cocktails such as margaritas, mojitos, and martinis. Undoubtedly though, the highlight of
Eating & Drinking 2015/2016 W XYZ is certainly the
concoction. Served with a dash of fresh blueberries, kaffir leaves, orange and pineapple juice as well as grenadine syrup, this tipple is sure to leave the palates of its guests with a twist of flavors like never before.
W XYZ’s swanky interior features an assemblage of colorful, chic furniture and vibrant neon lights that echo’s comfort and style, perfect for an all-day sociable destination. Come nightfall, the bar space translates into a lively nightlife setting, as local bands entertain guests with smooth indie vibes. Together with W XYZ’s weekday Happy Hours from 5pm to 9pm, and from 3pm to 9pm on weekends, this is the perfect getaway following a long, hard day at the office or simply a place to beat the heat in the heart of KL.
