The lights and sounds of Christmas have been making Kuala Lumpur livelier than it usually is, along with the rush of holiday festivities and New Year celebrations. During this crazy time of the year, you might find yourself frequenting the same bars and restaurants to attend company Christmas parties or annual gatherings with your mates.
So, before you get tired of the venues you’re probably going to be rushing to next month, we have some good news to share: at least six new bars and restaurants are scheduled to open at TREC KL — the largest entertainment as well as food and beverage estate in the heart of KL.
Following the official launch of Cafe Society and China Bar KL in October, the scheduled openings of Drop and Fu Luck Bar this month are another welcome development for those tasked to plan end-of-the-year events and other office functions around this time of the year. The new venues brings the total number of brands at the entertainment compound along Jalan Tun Razak to a total of 40 brands. This comes after multi-faceted Korean bar and restaurant YG Republique as well as 1960s-themed Gasoline Bar and cocktail bar The Mojito Man opened its doors to the public at TREC KL’s Alcove block earlier.
