A rooftop bar is always the best place to count down to the new year. Not only will you get a vantage point of the fireworks, but the city view is also a gorgeous one to drink to. Ring in the new year at The Lido Rooftop Bar KL in Alila Bangsar with flutes of bubbly champagne, strangers in high spirits, and a special guest DJ French Chris from – you guessed it – France.
You can choose to join the party for a cover charge at RM80 per person inclusive of one drink or pick from two other packages ranging between RM500 and RM1,800.
Ring in the new year at one of the newest hotel bars to open in the city centre: Jann. The hotel has included a pretty good deal at RM120 per pax for unlimited soft drinks, wine, beer, and house spirits. All this plus a DJ spinning tunes make for a pretty great way to count down to 2020.
Boasting some of the best views in the city, Vertigo will probably be one of the hottest spots to catch the fireworks. Your cover charge will get you either a Mumm Brut Cordon Rouge NV Champagne, Beefeater Gin, Ballantine Whisky, or Absolut Vodka. If you want to make it a big party with your friends, you can get a table package for six and eight people at RM3,350 and RM4,850 respectively.
When it comes to partying, W Kuala Lumpur knows how to do it best. Boasting not one but two in-house events, those who want to party with a view can head to Wet Deck where UK-based DJ Huxley will be spinning house music until the fireworks are released. Simply pay a cover charge of RM180 which will come with a glass of champagne, wine, spirits or beer.
Following the hotel’s many themed celebrations, this New Year, Sofitel Kuala Lumpur Damansara is throwing a Moulin Rouge themed bash with specially curated dishes from the team behind Kwee Zeen. Prices vary between RM258 and RM498 with the latter boasting a free flow of beer, wine, and sparkling wine.
Counting down to the new year doesn’t necessarily need to mean loud music, dancing, and way too many people stomping on your feet. It can also be a classy and elegant affair, and you’ll be able to find that in the Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur hotel. Themed “A Night at the Big Top”, choose to celebrate at Thirty8 or JP Teres. Both will serve an international style buffet, while the former will have live performances by Bob the Trumpeter and DJ Miss Newell as well as lucky draws.
If you love the food at OpenHouse KLCC, you’re going to love celebrating 2020 with the restaurant. Sit by the private balcony and you’ll be able to enjoy a spectacular view of the countdown fireworks. Feast from the grazing table and carving station, enjoy the music by a DJ and stay entertained with activities leading up to midnight.
Another one of the newest spots in town that will be showcasing a great view is the rooftop of EQ Kuala Lumpur. Start your evening at the Equator Club lounge with a fantastic selection of food, cocktails, and live music. Later in the night, you’ll be ushered to the Sky51 after-party at Blue to count down with a live band and all-night-long DJ. Internationally acclaimed singer Donny Ray Evins will also be performing throughout the evening.
Alternatively, you can also choose to have a contemporary European 8-course dégustation menu prepared by Michelin star Chef Hans Boren at Sabayon prior to the after-party.
For a more private and intimate way to usher in the new year but still hanging with the cool crowd, head to WooBar in W Kuala Lumpur instead. Sip on specialised cocktails by the team behind WooBar or try out its boardgame-themed menu – it’s going to be a fun one with friends.
Every year, The St. Regis KL never fails to pull off some of the most spectacular fireworks display in town. This year’s no different with the hotel planning a 600-shot fireworks display running at eight minutes. The cover charge is RM98 and includes a welcome drink, but there are also private tables and cabanas if you’re planning on bringing a group of people.
If you’re raring to make 2020 a unique one, make sure it happens by ushering it in the most unique way at Joloko’s celebration of the extraordinary. There’s no entrance fee and no dress code limitations – come as you are in the best possible way. The night will be hosted by Kumela Kumslut with DJs Renry Hollins, Rizki & Yugo T spinning throughout.
Celebrate the new year fashionably with Vogue Lounge KL by catching the fireworks display from a 360º rooftop, champagne in hand. You will be entertained by music from DJ Hard Lights and DJ Nica who will be spinning till 3 AM – now that’s a hard party.
Another location with an incredible vantage point of the fireworks is Claret at Troika Sky Dining. With your cover charge, you’ll be served an aperitivo while you graze on the Venetian snack bar comprising assorted housemade pickles and cured meat on pizza bianca crackers, beef prosciutto, and more.
Ain’t no party like a block party at Concubine KL, they say. It’s no swanky club or rooftop bar, but the people at Concubine KL promises a good time with DJs playing from Kwai Chai Hong’s balcony and lots of booze.
