This bar, housed in a new space all to itself after moving out from DR.Inc, has one thing on its mind: cocktails. It should be known, though, that the cocktail menu at Coley is one that CK Kho – a talent in KL’s cocktail circuit – tightly edits and changes every three months, with a core selection of classics that take on contemporary twists. Certainly deserving of its spot in Asia's 50 Best Bars of 2018.
Coley’s Saffron Sour, for instance, is made with saffron-infused bourbon and mixed with lemon, sugar and vanilla syrup. Look to its ‘Koktel’ menu for kopitiam-inspired drinks leaning towards local ingredients – they’re served in kopitiam glasses too.
We’re enjoying a cocktail renaissance, where classic revivals, egg foam trends and elbow bands sidle up to the bar. Here are the best cocktail bars in KL that are leading the charge, from classy joints to secret bars to concept speakeasies.
