Ultimate Access to Kuala Lumpur


Zhongshan Building

Jalan Kampung Attap, 80 - 84, Jalan Rotan

A refurbished dilapidated row of shop lots turned vibrant arts, design, music and fashion hub. The Zhongshan Building plays home to a mini gallery, studios, research centers, cafes, a library, a record store and many more. This is one of my favorite spots to chill at and immerse in.

Catch a breath at the little hole-in-the-wall cafe known fondly as PiuPiuPiu. Its namesake stems from its head honcho Unagi’s love of water.


The Alibi KL

Lot G2-1, Taman Tunku

Another day, another gem! Embracing a Latin flair, the newest speakeasy bar in Kuala Lumpur. Brainchild of three entrepreneur-brothers Roen & Jee Cian and Kesavan Purusotman. It’s a no-brainer that Alibi KL would be a crowd pleaser too. Its elegance and style is truly reminiscent of glamorous elite clubs we’ve seen in films, except in this case, it’s accessible to all.
