Once again, we’re back with another list of new bars, this time for March 2020.

The past few months since the new year started have been rife with tension. From the Australian bushfires to the Covid-19 virus and even a political nightmare in our own backyard. Be that as it may, it shouldn’t deter one from going about your life. After all, there’s more to life than what happens on a global scale.

Meanwhile, throw back a drink or two at these new bars around town. Check out the full list of new bars this March 2020 below.

1
JIS Kuala Lumpur

JIS Kuala Lumpur is Malaysia’s first-ever social lounge, hailing all the way from Sapporo, Japan. This one-of-a-kind concept bar allows you to mingle, socialise, and network in a modern and contemporary setting while offering great food and drink to go along with it. The best part — every day is ladies night.

This will complement the already existing Bo All Day Dining, concluding a full circle on having a restaurant and a bar in one central location. Banker Bar & Lounge offers exciting cocktails as well as some old classics, ensuring you leave with a smile on your face.

Bottega Lounge

EQ Kuala Lumpur is steadily becoming the go-to place to be for a good drink and a good time. With Blue being its rooftop bar with panoramic views of the KL city skyline, Bottega Lounge exudes a more sensual and intimate vibe. This collaboration with the prosecco brand showcases its worth with velvet and plush furnishings as well as an extensive wine list and menu.

PostScript Bar KL

PS150’s sister bar PostScript Bar KL will be taking over the streets of Chow Kit. Specifically, hidden inside Instagrammable cafe Tapestry. With PS150’s oriental charm and appeal, PostScript Bar KL draws parallels from that with a more Edwardian approach as well as a creative cocktail menu.
