Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sen­tral,

Time Out Malaysia Eating and Drinking Guide - - SPECIAL FEATURE -

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.
