Wine bars and shops in KL

Sniff, swirl and sip your way through these wine bars in Kuala Lumpur

While cocktail bars were all the rage last year, we are slowly seeing a proliferation of wine bars in Kuala Lumpur. Whether you’re a wine expert, a newbie, or just someone looking for a nice place to uncork and unwind, we’ve got you covered.

Private Room
1/5

Private Room

Private Room is quite possibly the city’s first speakeasy wine bar. It is owned by seven wine enthusiasts and two of them are Private Room’s own sommeliers: Danny, formerly of Marble 8, and Justin, who used to work in the hotel industry. The founders wanted to create an outlet for the public to learn more about wine as they currently see wine-drinking culture in KL as a niche market limited to fancy restaurants and hotels.  The bar carries more than 200 labels from all over the world. When you get there, try not to ask for the wine list – there isn't one. Instead, Justin believes the wine selection process should involve recommendations from the bar's sommeliers, who would gladly assist you in picking the right wine.

Sitka Restaurant
2/5

Sitka Restaurant

Sitka has seen a few transformations since its inception in 2014. However, its current form as a wine bar could be its most successful yet. For one, there are more than 300 labels available, from both New and Old Worlds – certainly one of the most extensive in KL. Most importantly, the wines here are very affordably priced; you can easily get a bottle from just RM89. Food-wise, the menu features a well-edited selection of Asian-inspired, restaurant quality dishes that have the ease of a café fare. Think chicken and chive dumplings in chilli oil, buttermilk chicken waffle, pulled chicken peanut miso bao, ramen, rice bowls and more.

Wine Connection

International wine retailer Wine Connection has opened their flagship store in TREC. It’s a clean, sleek space – marble floors, and wood shelves filled with countless bottles of wine. The alfresco area is where the tables and chairs are at. Wine Connection is especially proud of their incredible selection of over 200 labels, and they should be. You can find a huge array of wines from countries all around the world – think whites, reds, champagne and sparkling from France, Argentina, New Zealand and more – all specially curated by their team of experts, who taste over 2,000 wines annually before selecting the top five percent to be a part of their collection. Doubling as a retailer and wine bar, Wine Connection also allows guests to enjoy a bottle or a glass on the premises.
