While The Attic Bar doesn’t claim to be a speakeasy, it certainly has the attributes of one. It’s located discreetly on the rooftop of the Travel Hub flashpacker guesthouse, with no signs on the street level indicating its existence. To get here, you need to be buzzed into the first floor guesthouse, head to the back and then take the spiral staircase two floors up – where you’ll find a cosy, relaxed little space, complete with sofa and beanbag corners. There’s a quaint DIY charm to bar, with bare brick walls and a feature chandelier made from wooden birdcages. Walk out to the balcony and you’ll find a decent view as well, looking out to the KL Sentral developments and the Moorish rooftops of the old railway station. But the best part about The Attic Bar is the price. Beers start from only RM10, classic cocktails are priced no more than RM20, and the signature cocktails are all RM22 each.

Friendly staff, prices are reasonable and

drink menu is great.

The view is actually nice, nothing spectacular, but if you are looking for a place to go out with friends and have a few drinks, then you can't go wrong with THE ATTIC BAR where its easy to make a fantastic memory!

 Really just for the backpackers who happen to stay at the hostel. Service is really lackluster, about on the level you'd expect considering the crowd that it attracts, but I guess it's not that expensive if you're looking for a drink or two.
