Things To DO In KL
Having done sightseeing throughout the day why not finish it all off with one of KL’s most outstandingly designed Restaurants? We are a real treasure trove for travellers who want to immerse in a truly exotic environment. Opium KL is well-recognised as one of the most stylish Restaurant and Bars in Changkat Bukit Bintang. Situated less than a 10-minute walk from Bukit Bintang Monorail Station, this establishment serves a wide range of modernised Oriental cuisine and uniquely-named signature cocktails. Al fresco dining is especially popular in the summer season. Considering Malaysia is summer all year round, temperatures and weather are most favourable for such a dining environment. It is a style of dining that is casual and often party-like in its atmosphere. Besides that, you get a very good idea of Chinese history that is reflected in the interior design.
Interior-wise, Opium KL exudes a glamorous 1930s vibe with age-old artefacts adorning the entire establishment, including an intricate opium bed in the Rose Room, brass lion head door knocker, antique opium pipes, stained glass windows, and rows of Chinese wine pots displayed vividly in the communal area. The design of Opium Bar and Restaurant is so well executed that the scene is just about as stylish as you can get in this popular nightlife area in downtown KL.
Beautifully presented in charming ceramic bowls and glasses, Opium KL’s extensive beverage menu consists of single malt whiskies, Chinese rice wines, beers, spirits, and house wines, as well as uniquely-named signature and classic cocktails. Definite must-tries include the Peking Man (vodka, puer tea, longan, lime juice, egg white, and orange bitters), Shanghailander (whisky, peated puree, black tea syrup, lemon juice, and egg white), and Forbidden City (rum, grand Marnier, lime juice, orange juice, and five-spiced syrup).
Well-patronised for its exquisite and tasteful decor, prompt service, as well as unique food-and-beverage menu, Opium KL is also an ideal option for diners who want to enjoy a more stylish and comfortable dining ambience in the often overcrowded Changkat Bukit Bintang. It should be on your list of places to visit in Kuala Lumpur. On a daily basis, at 7.30pm and 8.45pm, catering to the dinner and after-dinner crowds, Live Oriental Music Performance is being played at the al-fresco stage area to accommodate the pedestrian activity and vibrancy of the night-life street. Instrumental music will be played with either one of these instruments; Guzheng, Pi Pa or Yang Qing. Come and experience this must visit place oriental atmosphere, in KL’s trendiest restobar with the best asian food and oriental cuisine!
