Marini’s on 57

This is my second time to set foot in Kuala Lumpur but my first time to be in its highest rooftop bar. I came across this bar when I did my research for the trip. Someone mentioned that Petronas Twin Towers is fantastic when viewed from this rooftop bar.
Marini’s on 57 is on the 57th floor of Petronas Tower 3 just adjacent to the Petronas Twin Towers and the shopping mall Suria KLCC. We had to ask the information person at the mall how to get to the place, and were directed to the area that links the mall to Tower 3.
We followed the corridor with “Marinis” signs on the wall which lead us to a staff member who pointed us to the private lifts that took us to a level called SL, we were then ushered to another elevator that took us to the 56th floor. The staff waiting by the door then showed us to another lift that we got in and very shortly after opened up to the entrance to the establishment (on the 57th level).
I had made an online reservation for 6.00 o’clock in the evening to watch the city views transition as the sun goes down. It rained that afternoon but it cleared a bit and we saw this view from our table positioned right in front of the floor to ceiling window.

We sampled some of Marini’s signature drinks until the twin towers next door lit up.

The bar also has an open area which shows an even more incredible view of the twin towers.

We had an amazing night! Til next time…
