Imagine sipping cocktails on a helipad with 360° views of KL’s iconic skyline while watching the sunset? Helicopter pad turned Heli lounge bar in KL is one to add you your experience in Malaysia’s Kuala Lumpur. This helipad by day and heli lounge bar by night is a must-experience! Where in the world can you land a chopper on a helipad, only to have that same helipad turn into a helipad lounge bar after dark? Only in Kuala Lumpur!
The Heli Lounge Bar is quite literally a breath of fresh air. One of 5 helipads in the city but what makes this one special is that you can stand on it and sip cocktails as the sun sets into the horizon. After much exploring of Kuala Lumpur, I was not to leave without checking this place out.
Before you get too excited and rush to the stairs leading to the helipad on the 36th floor, you will have to buy a drink in the bar before being shown up to the roof. The Heli Lounge Bar sits on the on the 34th floor and comes complete with an aeronautical theme to the decor. You have panels from Boeing 737 and 747 turned into sitting booth and DJ console.
The best views in the city! You have 360 degrees of uninterrupted vies of the city of Kuala Lumpur.
The Heli Pad is 2 flights of stairs, also note that other than the light barriers around the helipad, you are basically on the roof of a building with no safety net. There is security on deck to ensure no one gets too close to the edge.
The drinks are surprisingly not expensive either, around $10 a pop and for that you are rewarded with a mind-blowing view of Kuala Lumpur with the famous Petronas Twin Towers staring back at you. The views and atmosphere were great when we visited but from what I had heard it gets super busy on the weekends.
I can’t recall if we visited on the weekend or not. Another note for all working as flight crew, oil and gas crew and banking professional get discounts on particular nights. They also have a ladies night, where the ladies get a drink for RM15.
Getting there: It’s fairly easy to get to and find. Although the building not so obvious. The is a monorail stop just outside but local taxi and uber are plenty.
Heli lounge bar opening hours: Monday to Wednesday 6pm – midnight, until 2am on Thursdays and Friday- Saturdays until 3am. On, 34th Floor, Menara HK, Jalan Sultan Ismail, KL
So beautiful! I was going to visit this bar but ended up at the Trader's Hotel instead. That bar doesn't have a view of needle so next time I am in KL I will have to seek this out! The view looks amazing 🙂
Definitely check it out, if for the views alone. Next time I will aim to get there before sunset as it looks like the best spot to see it.
No one visits these bars with his family for the reasons that are not difficult to understand. Scootamania
Hey Bee, do you know if the Heli lounge bar menu has food?
It was mainly drinking from what I remember. Its fairly small place.
Hey, do you know if the Heli lounge has a dress code?
Not as far as I am aware. People were dressed in fairly relaxed clothing. Just to be on the safe side I would at least be in smart casual.

This is such a cool place. We are heading to Malaysia in January and I am keen to check out the heli lounge bar in Kuala Lumpur just before we head out to Penang. Amazing pictures.
Yep the views are just a treat. Definitely make time to check it out.
Oh wow, my friend was only telling me about the heli lounge bar in kuala lumpur when I decided to google it as we are heading to KL in May next year. Just a cool place to hang out it appears. Can you tell me if there are any railings?
Hi there, there are no railings at all. There is a rope around and guards around but no railings am afraid.
The helipad lounge bar in kuala lumpur looks pretty cool. I am dying to visit when we are arrive in Malaysia for Christmas.
It was one of the highlights of our trip to Kuala Lumpur. You will love the views.
Hey, do you know if I can find the heli lounge bar kuala lumpur menu somewhere?
Hi Zaman, please have a look at their site. Its a small place so dont expect the helipad lounge KL menu to be super extensive.
