Man Tao Bar – The Latest Rooftop Bar in Kuala Lumpur
During our stay at Hotel Stripes Kuala Lumpur (full review here), we also checked out their rooftop bar, Man Tao Bar located at the 21st floor in the evening before dinner. This new rooftop bar is facing the iconic KL Tower and the Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve/ KL Forest Eco-Park, the only green lung of KL city centre.
We wanted to swim and hang out by the pool before chilling at the bar, but the weather turned so quickly that suddenly a thunderstorm was upon us. So we decided to have a round of drinks at Man Tao Bar before we headed back to the room. This bar specialises in the Tsingtao Cocktails, which they make from the famous chinese beer, Tsingtao beer. I was intrigued so I ordered the Tsing Tini (RM40), a combination of elderflower liqueur, watermelon juice and basil leaves with Tsingtao beer. The cocktail was light and refreshing, even though I didn’t need one for such a rainy day. Still I enjoyed the cocktail while Big Teddy was sipping his large Tsingtao Beer (RM35).
Unfortunately, the rain didn’t stop in time for us to enjoy the sunset over KL Tower. Therefore, we will have to return another day to enjoy the view and take our time with our cocktails on a good weather day. So, tell me where is your favourite rooftop bar?
