Beautifully presented in charming ceramic bowls and glasses, Opium KL’s extensive beverage menu consists of single malt whiskies, Chinese rice wines, beers, spirits, and house wines, as well as uniquely-named signature and classic cocktails – Peking Man (vodka, puer tea, longan, lime juice, egg white, and orange bitters), and 50 Shades of Grey – just to name a few.

Pisco Bar's Pisco Sours @ Jalan Mesui
Located in the very heart of Kuala Lumpur, Pisco Bar serves up a Peruvian-inspired menu in a trendy, laid-back setting. During dinner hours, Pisco Bar introduces to KL a great range of unique Peruvian and Spanish Tapas. But it is definitely after dinner when, encouraged by the raw and industrial sexy look of the interior, Pisco Bar acquires its unique character. The Bar proposes a flexible layout which allows cocktail party, live performances with some of the trendiest DJs in town, movie screenings, and many more. If you have the chance to come by here, you really should try the signature cocktails of the bar. One of the must-try drinks is of course, Pisco Bar’s signature Pisco Sours. It’s a light, foamy beverage containing pisco, egg white and sugar to give a sweet taste, while adding lime to balance the sweetness with some acidity. We also like the Peanut Butter & Jelly shooter, comprising frangelico & cranberry! Click here for online reservations >

Ojos Bar's Taiwanese Cocktails @ Jaya One
Ojos Bar came up with very original and interesting concept: Taiwanese cocktails. The founders behind Ojos Bar believe that cocktail making is all about stimulation of all 5 senses: sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch. At Ojos Bar, their cocktails carry a lot of Taiwanese influence and are easy to drink and well mix up. Their famous one is the Cococabana – the glass is coated nicely with cocoa powder and topped with a homemade cotton candy. It is a great mix of smirnoff vodka, creme de casis, white wine, lime, Ojos ginger syrup, and ginger ale. You can also enjoy their Taiwanese snack to accompany those tasty and sweet cocktails. Every 2 weeks, a Taiwanese mixologist is invited to become a guest mixologist in Ojos Bar to work along with David, a Malaysian mixologist to serve the best concoctions to customers.
