View From Heli Lounge Bar In Kuala Lumpur

Sipping cocktails on a helipad with 360° views of Kuala Lumpur’s iconic skyline while watching the sunset?

As the Travel Correspondent at Bespoke Unit I’ve had the opportunity to check out some pretty amazing rooftop bars all over the world, but Heli Lounge Bar was truly unlike anything I’d ever seen before…

Drinks At Heli Lounge Bar

I had just touched down in Kuala Lumpur with Bespoke Unit Founder Paul Anthony and we were in search of a rooftop bar where we could grab some drinks while getting a bird’s eye view of the city.

Our standards for drinks with a view were set quite high after our recent visit to Sky Bar Bangkok in Thailand so we were interested to see how this secret rooftop bar in Kuala Lumpur would compare.

The following review of Heli Lounge Bar KL covers everything you need to know about Kuala Lumpur’s best rooftop bar including the hours of operation, how to get there, the dress code, drink prices, photos and more.

Everything To Know About Heli Lounge Bar KL

Heli Lounge Bar is a fully functional helipad by day that converts into one of the world’s coolest rooftop bars by night.

The complex, located inside the Menara KH building, is made up of two separate levels: a nightclub on the top floor and the helipad bar on the roof above.

After taking the elevator up to the 34th floor you’ll enter the nightclub area which has a distinctive black and white color scheme with blood red accents:

The aviation theme is apparent throughout the entire nightclub which features furniture made from of old airplane parts, as well as a bar menu that’s full of creatively named cocktails like the “Fizzy 747” and “Chopper.”

There’s even an old Boeing 737 side panel that’s been converted into a seating booth and a DJ table made from a Boeing 747 turbine engine!

Opening Hours & What Time You Should Go

The roof of the Menara KH building is a fully operational helicopter pad during the day so the bar doesn’t open until the late afternoon / early evening.

Here are the official Heli Lounge Bar hours:

Monday: 5:00 p.m. – 12:00 a.m.
Tuesday: 5:00 p.m. – 12:00 a.m.
Wednesday: 5:00 p.m. – 12:00 a.m.
Thursday: 5:00 p.m. – 2:00 a.m.
Friday: 5:00 p.m. – 3:00 a.m.
Saturday: 5:00 p.m. – 3:00 a.m.
Sunday: 6:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m.

Note: The helipad bar opens at 6:00 p.m. for drinks and appetizers during sunset and then turns into more of a nightclub at 9:00 p.m. with the dress code (discussed below) becoming much stricter.Sky Bar In Kuala Lumpur

We arrived at 6:00 p.m. sharp on a Wednesday night just as the helipad bar was opening so we were able to get a table near the edge with a great view. However, the helipad fills up quickly so make sure you get there early if you want a table close to the edge with the best views.

How To Get To The Menara KH Building

Heli Lounge Bar is located on the 34th floor of the Menara KH building in the Bukit Bintang District of Kuala Lumpur. For directions to the Menara KH Building on Google Maps, click here.

The Menara KH building is located near many of Kuala Lumpur’s main attractions in the heart of the Golden Triangle District, but the building is quite unassuming from the outside and Heli Lounge Bar is not advertised at all from the street.

Note: The fact that the rooftop bar is not advertised from the street adds to its secret and exclusive vibe, but it can also make it a bit difficult to find.

How To Get There By Taxi / Uber

If you are going by taxi then you can ask your driver to take you to the Menara KH building. The ground floor of the building is home to the INTI International College of Kuala Lumpur so you can mention that if your driver doesn’t know about the Menara KH building.

You can also get to the Menara KH building by taking the KL Monorail to the Raja Chulan Station (MR7). After getting off at Raja Chulan Station head north on Jalan Sultan Ismal and the building will be about 60 meters ahead on your left.

Dress Code Policy

The dress code at Heli Lounge Bar varies depending on what time you plan to arrive and how long you plan to stay.

If you are just going for the sunset then the dress code is pretty relaxed (i.e. shorts are fine), but it becomes much stricter starting at 9:00 p.m. when the nightclub experience begins.

The official dress code policies at Heli Lounge Bar are as follows:


  • NO slippers, flip-flops, sandals and crocs
  • NO Bermuda pants and for men, NO sleeveless attire or rolled-up pants
  • NO caps, beret or any sporty head gears



  • NO Bermuda pants, and for men, NO sleeveless attire or rolled-up pants
  • NO slippers, flip-flops, sandals and crocs
  • NO caps, beret or any sporty head gears

Heli Lounge Bar Drink Menu & Prices

A variety of drinks are on offer at Heli Lounge Bar including classic cocktails like mojitos and martinis, as well as some in-house specialty cocktails including:

  • Dine In The Air – Rum, Angostura Bitter and Celery
  • The Chopper – Vodka, Apple Syrup and Green Tea
  • Star Kiss – Vodka, Vanilla Syrup and Pineapple
  • Fizzy 747 – Vodka, Mint, Ginger Ale and Lime Wedges
  • Hellusion – Vodka, Coconut Rum, Triple Sec, Pineapple and Lemon Juice

The bar also serves a wide range of domestic and imported beers.

How Much Do Drinks Cost?

The drink prices at Heli Lounge Bar are quite affordable for rooftop bar standards – especially when you consider the fact that you’re drinking on a helicopter pad!

Most of the cocktails and large beers will cost you 30 Malaysian Ringgit. While the drinks may seem a bit expensive for Malaysia, you’re really paying for the unrivaled views and overall experience.

Note: If you arrive after 9:00 p.m. you will be required to purchase two bottles of wine or liquor in order to get a table on the helipad, but there is no minimum spend requirement if you are just going to catch the sunset like we did.

After purchasing a drink at the bar on the 34th floor you will be able to climb two flights of stairs to access the helipad bar area: Stairs To Roof Of Menara KH Building

Views Of Kuala Lumpur From The Helipad Bar

One of the most important characteristics of a great rooftop bar is the view that it offers and this place will not let you down:

Views From Heli Lounge Rooftop Bar

With nothing but a retractable rope separating you from the edge of the helipad you’ll have unobstructed views of Kuala Lumpur’s impressive skyline.

The helipad is perfectly situated between the Petronas Towers and KL Tower which are the two most iconic buildings in Kuala Lumpur.

Make sure you arrive early so you can watch the sunset and stay for at least an hour after the sun goes down so you can see the city lit up at night.

Final Thoughts On The Heli Lounge Bar Experience

A visit to Heli Lounge Bar is a must-do when in Kuala Lumpur. Enjoying cocktails on a helipad while watching the sunset was truly an unforgettable experience and has become one of my main recommendations for people visiting Malaysia’s capital city.

    Loved the heli pad bar! It was one of the highlights of our trip to KL. We enjoyed drinks and snacks which were reasonably priced. We caught ubers to and from the heli pad. We actually directed a few lost looking tourists where to go as it was a bit tricky to find. Brilliant 360 degree views of KL. A most unique experience on a stunning, clear, warm night!

    So if you arrived at 6pm, you can only stay until 9pm? since it’s stated that the dress code and requirement to enter helipad is different

    • Paul Anthony January 29, 2018 at 7:21 am - Reply

      We didn’t stay until that late, so not 100% sure.

      Best thing to do is reach out to the bar directly.

      Thanks, Paul

    Thanks for this! Will be heading here this weekend and I just wanted to confirm : customers will only need to buy 1 drink to enjoy the view on the helipad right? Do we at least get a table to put our drinks up there or must we carry them :p

    • Trevor Guilday March 20, 2018 at 8:51 am - Reply

      Hi Avinesh,

      Yes, you will need to purchase a drink in order to enjoy the view from the Helipad Bar. There are several tables and chairs available on a first come, first served basis so as long as it is not too busy you should be able to find somewhere to sit and put your drinks down.

      That being said, you can also reserve a table ahead of time if you’d like.

      Have fun!

    Can we just go to catch the sunset view?

    • Paul Anthony August 15, 2018 at 1:03 pm - Reply


      But this is a business, so you should look to buy a drink and support it.

      We all have to work and make money. You’ll be getting an amazing view by them “supplying” the rooftop from which to enjoy it.

      Enjoy – Paul

    Thanks Paul,

    We have been to KL many (many!) times over the years but we have never been to the Heli Lounge.

    When we travel we love to find new things to experience. This is now on our list to do during our upcoming trip in January.

    Love the information you have provided,

    cheers and Happy New Year,

      Hi there,

      I honestly don’t know but I don’t see why Muslims wouldn’t be allowed! There are non-alcoholic beverages and likely some dishes that don’t go against Halal.

    do i need to reserve table or can walk in straight away ?

      You could probably walk in straight away if it isn’t a busy night but I would still recommend calling ahead.

    Monday night and we’ve paid 50myr each but it did include a free drink. It *seems* as though free entry has gone. There seem to be more lax on dress code, quite a few people on flip flops etc

    Hi guys, I visited the place on 11 April 2022. The cover charge is RM50 per person offering 1 free drinks. Sorry to say that this will be my first and last to come to this place. I was suppose to meet up with 2 of my friends, so I was early and paid for the cover charge(for myself). Unknowingly my other friend paid the cover charge for 3 persons. So when we asked for refund they refuse citing company policy. Well we even suggested that why not the extra cover charge to cover the cost of food, to our dismay this was also rejected. The place was run down and with such service I am taking my spending on other place. BOOO…

      Hey John,
      Thanks for sharing your experience, it’s unfortunate that it was not a pleasurable one. This review was made more than 5 years ago so I can see how things could’ve changed, especially over the last two years which have affected many businesses and especially those that thrive on tourists. Hopefully yours wasn’t a new norm for the Heli Lounge.
