Kuala Lumpur - Marini's on 57

Last weekend, some of my school friends came up from Ipoh and we have a stay over in a rented unit in Sri Mutiara Apartment, about 3 km away from the city centre. The main activity for the night was to go to Marini's on 57.

Marini's on 57

Located on the 57th floor of the Petronas Tower 3 (hence, the name), Marini's on 57 is a high end establishment that boasts top notch view of KL skyline. Consists of a restaurant, a bar and a lounge, Marini's on 57 is definitely the 'It' place to be.

We made reservation for the bar as we just want to enjoy refreshments as well as soak in the awesome views. The atmosphere is relaxing and, as with most bars, the lighting is dim, with most of the light coming from the twin tower itself. Just imagine how close we are to the national landmark.

My friends are in awe with the skyline view

As for the drinks, we all ordered cocktails. Being cheapskates that we are, we went during Happy Hour (5pm - 9pm) to enjoy affordable alcoholic drinks. There are only five choices of cocktails listed for Happy Hour (Mojito, The 57 Sour, Marini's Sangaree, Bali Hali and Italiano) for you to choose from and all are priced RM 25.00. All of it are deliciously intoxicating.

Have to use Instagram photo as I failed to take a decent shot using DSLR

Comparison between Marini's on 57 with the KL SkyBar cannot be avoided. While I find the drinks in Marini's are better, the ones in SkyBar, especially during Happy Hour, are cheaper, albeit with much fewer choices. Atmosphere wise, the one in Marini's is simple and sophisticated while the pool in SkyBar offers an unique decor. As for the view of the twin tower, I still prefer the one from KL SkyBar.

We stayed there until around ten plus before heading back to the apartment for more fun and laughter. Seriously, good time + amazing friends = awesome memories!
