A helipad by day and bar by night? Yes, that’s exactly what Heli Lounge Bar is all about. When you’ve finally accomplished climbing a flight of stairs up to the Heli Lounge, you’ll find yourself standing out in the open surrounded by 360 degree views of KL and some mismatched furniture. Downstairs, there’s a club with a Resident DJ and aviation-inspired decor.
There are plenty of things that wow us when it comes to Heli Lounge Bar. First, there is the concept – a helicopter pad turned nightlife hotspot is definitely one of the coolest things we have seen or heard of in Kuala Lumpur in recent times. Secondly, there is the theme, with everything in the lounge aeronautically-oriented, like a booth made from the converted side panel of a Boeing 737 and a Boeing-747 turbine turned into a DJ console. Lastly, Heli Lounge Bar’s little-known status will make you feel like you are part of the super elite when you visit.
The helipad – one of only five in the city – is still in use during the day but at night turns into a rooftop bar with a portable drink station and some simple lounge chairs and tables.
