Don’t stress about where to go for these beautiful KL night views, we’ve got you covered!
1. Marini’s on 57
Marini’s on 57 is the highest rooftop bar in KL located on the—you guessed it—57th floor in Menara 3 Petronas. It is a fine dining restaurant that serves exquisite Italian cuisines with an adjoining lounge and bar. The classy floor-to-ceiling glass windows offer an amazing view of the city, and paired with a luxurious candlelit dinner, it’s the perfect date night out.
There’s a direct view of the Petronas Twin Towers on the open-roof area where the bar is. If you want a group picture, the waiters are surprisingly proficient, skilfully balancing one phone for the flashlight and the other to capture the moment.

4. Bukit Tabur
If you are more of an adventurous person as opposed to the wine and dine type, Bukit Tabur is great place for night hikes. From the peak of the hills, you can see the lovely night views of KL and even the vibrant lights from Genting Highlands. When the mist rolls in, it feels like you’re standing in the clouds far above the tiny specks below.
You can also opt to stay and watch the magnificent sunrise with your friends!
Address: Hulu Gomback Forest Reserve, Selangor.
5. Dataran Merdeka
If you’re a history fanatic and/or don’t have the money to splurge on expensive rooftop bars, head on over to Merdeka Square for a breezy stroll around the recreational park with scenic night views. The vicinity is beautifully well-lit at night, with multiple historical buildings close by such as Royal Selangor Club Complex, the Old KL Train Station and the Sultan Abdul Samad Building.
Address: Jalan Raja, 50050 Kuala Lumpur.
