Fantabulous Marini’s on 57
Looking for glamour, an unusual view on the city and the Petronas towers, our feet naturally dragged us to Marini’s on 57 in KLCC. The name says it all; it’s italian, it’s classy and it’s… on the 57th floor. The view on the twin towers is amazing, you are so close and feel you can almost touch them. All the skyline seems so remote and tiny compared to the height you are – even the Troika towers have a lilliputian aspect.
We went there for drinks hence I will have to come back and try by myself the apparently gorgeous italian restaurant run by a renowned chef.
The cocktails are prepared with all the expertise and creativity that only real mixologists can infuse to your drinks. Of course the good old classics such as Bloody mary, Dry martini and Negroni are on the menu, but a variety of in house creations is also available – I highly recommend the Sangaree Marini’s, a perfect balance of Gin, thyme and port. Wines are also very well picked – the Montepulciano at RM25 is perfect for sunset hours. You can share a plate of chocolate or any other mise en bouches to go with it – should you be too astonished by the Petronas towers vicinity that you don’t want to leave your spot and go to have dinner.
Don’t forget to be dressed beautifully and formally – flip flops are a no go – and you don’t want the bouncer to ruin your evening
During the month of October, Marini’s on 57th is generously inviting customers for mixology classes every wednesday. It’s top quality and a good way to learn more about your favorite poison.
