About
For Reservations -> +60321101219 https://www.instagram.com/helipadkl When night falls, this functioning helipad on the 36th floor of Menara KH, transforms into an upscale rooftop bar. The sunset views at golden hour are a highlight; it's also when the bar is the busiest so try to reserve a table and get there early to snag seats along the outer rim of the open-air terrace. You'll get unobstructed views of the Kuala Lumpur skyline as you indulge in craft cocktails, local beers, international wines, and succulent foods.

    I recommend!
    Came alone for a couple drinks on my last night in KL. The view was absolutely beautiful. Both of my drinks were tasty and I sat with a worker Daniel who was very kind. Recommend you to check this out whilst you’re here!

    A Unique Experience in Kuala Lumpur
    I went to the Heli Lounge Bar because I was intrigued at it once being an active helicopter landing pad that was converted to a bar. The reviews and pictures were also intriguing as I have never been to such a place before. Upon arrival, after getting off the elevator, you pay an entrance fee that includes the cost of two drinks. You then have to climb another 3 flights of steps to get to the rooftop bar. Once there, the views are spectacular. I felt like I was floating on a heli pad. The waiter comes over and takes your drink order. I went at dusk and watched as night fell upon Kuala Lumpur. You can also see the Petronas Towers light up in the skyline. I didn't order food, but there is a small bites menu. I highly recommend the Helipad Bar as a unique experience while visiting Kuala Lumpur.

    View made it worth while
    The view was great and it is a unique experience to have drinks at a heli pad. However, service was slow and rather careless and the drinks were just average. I think the IG reputation has kind of ruined this place and made it feel on the touristy side rather than a must do experience.

    Helipad bar KL honest view
    The building its based in looks derelict, so one could easily walk past and we nearly did.. The building its based in has seen better days, but we persevered and took the lift to yhe 34th floor. We entered the bar and was given a pre rehearsed script all a little clichéd. I am your first officer, proceed to flight deck etc; mildly amusing I suppose. Then 100 Rinngit each which allows access to the deck, which includes 2 drinks, limited to Tiger Beer, choice of 3 or 4 cocktail and fruit juice. So basically 40 Rinngit per drink and 20 Rinngit entry fee. The views are uninterrupted around 360 degrees and the service was pretty attentive. The music playing was pretty good, think ibiza back ground chill. Reason for 3 stars, its seen better days and at the end when I paid cash for done extra beers, the guy tried to short change me, only 8 Rinngit, but he knew what he was doing, so soured it a little. We arrived at about 5.30 pm and left about 9pm, so saw the light go down and KL light up. There are many better rooftop bars in KL. But as a novelty probably OK..

    A pleasant surprise
    Stepping out onto the helipad the view is just amazing. The level of service, willingness to help and other suggestions on where to get the great photo form all the staff we spoke to was outstanding. May not be the highest roof top in KL, but certainly the best.

    Breathtaking view!
    The best thing about this place is of course the view, which is breathtaking. The personnel was also very friendly and they made our stay pleasant. The food and the cocktails were OK although nothing special. All in all, the experience was worth it and we had a great time at Heli Lounge.

    The best night in KL!
    This was the most exciting experience we had in KL!! So we paid 100 RM per head, which included two drink from a set list. If you wanted something else you would have to pay for it. The view was absolutely stunning, there was a DJ. At no point did we feel we were being rushed out or anything, it was a very chill evening. We reserved via instagram.

    Great Views and Good Fun
    Pretty cool here, a bit of a fuss to get to the helipad and you have to either buy a drinks combination which grants you access or a ticket. We took the drinks as we intended to stay for a while but the staff were a little unsure what to do as it looked like rain which never came. The views are amazing and you have unhindered views of the Warisan Merdeka Tower (2nd tallest building in the world), the Petronas Tower and the Menara Kuala Tower plus a really good view of the sunset. We had some bar food which was pretty decent too although a little expensive. Service was good once the staff had decided it wasn't going to rain. I can recommend this as a good tourist spot for party goers and photographers as it's a lot of fun, especially as the night moves on. Its a good idea to ring ahead and book a table.

This is our 4th visit to the Heli Bar in 4 years. Each time we come they up the ante and the prices. This time we had 17 people and each person was charged 50rm to enter which gave them one drink. We went up to the helipad and went to order a beer only to be told they were 40rm each. We left.
This is such a disappointment and we will not be returning.

What a terrible experience! The downhill started with an unassuming and uninviting elevator lobby with no signage or anyone from the bar there to escort or guide the guests.
You arrive at a dingy restaurant and need to order from the menu shoved into your hands. Only after ordering the drinks, one is allowed to go upstairs to the roof top above.
The inexcusable part.
My wife wanted to start with a Mocktail first...but they didn't seem to have any mocktail in the menu. We were suggested to order a cocktail sans the alcohol...but they would charge the price of cocktail. A complete rip off!!
The terrible part.
I handed over my credit card for the two drinks we ordered. I was expecting my Cc to be returned back after the charge as is normal in other establishments. But NO! In exchange of my Cc to be returned I was asked to deposit RM 200 as hold money. What a dis-respect to the customer and what a shame for an establishment that claims to be one of the best in KL.
This made me boil over, had a heated argument with the floor manager and left the venue immediately.
After having been to Vertigo at Banyan Tree, Marini's on 57, Skybar at Traders etc. ; all having beautiful views and excellent customer friendly service the encounter at Heli Lounge Bar was such a big big let down.
Wish there was a zero or negative ranking available for reviews.

This place is a total disappointment and a rip off. My husband and I went are tourist in KL, Malaysia. We arrived at the entrance of Heli Lounge Bar at 7.10pm today, Sat 02 July of 2022. At the entrance, the bar has a hand-written note that said that an Entrance Fee of RM100.00 per person is payable and it comes with 2 drinks. No food for the RM100.00 Entrance Fee. We paid RM200.00 in total and was asked to selected 2 types of drinks listed in the Entrance Fee. We were then told that can go up to the rooftop after both of us placed order for our drinks. While I went to the washroom, my husband went up to the rooftop to get a table and seat. To my horror, he came down to inform me that all tables are taken / reserved. We felt that the hosts / servers should inform us if there is no tables available for us to drink and eat our food. At 7.10pm, it's dinner time and we are there to drink, eat and enjoy the night sky of KL from the rooftop. They should let us know that there is no tables available at the rooftop. When we left at 7.20pm, we saw about 8 people quening to get into the bar. They were like us, no clue that there are no tables available at the rooftop for dining. We told those people in the Q to forget about this place and we are happy that they listen. As we arrived at the ground floor of the building, an elderly couple said that they told us that there is no booking for table - only walk in. We told them that there are no tables available. It's better for them to spend their money elsewhere.

The view was great and the rooftop terrace had a nice ambiance. Basically all the tables were already taken by the time we arrived a bit after half past six (the sunset is at 19:30), so be prepared to snatch the first available chairs.
We were surprised by the 50RM/pp entrance fee. It did include one drink though, but the cocktails were rather watery. There was a list of about ten items to choose from, a few cocktails, beer or a soda.
I could visit again, if the entrance fee was lower or the cocktails better.

Terrible doesnt even sum the experience, u pay 50 for cover charge and get a drink out of it, that wasnt even a big deal, as u r paying for the view and assumed they need to cover their loss post mco, felt just helping a business out.. But the moment u step ur foot ontop, the crowd up there is unbelievable, there is no physical distancing at all, tables are close to each other, forget 1m, ur chair is touching another table person's chair, a table that should sit four pax is packed with 8, when u ask the waiter for clarification he is rude, and ya most of the waiters were not even wearing mask.. A cluster waiting to happen, really unsafe.. The ambience that was there previously is not there anymore.. Extremely dissapointed.. They should limit their visitors, not allow more than they can accomodate..

A bit of a hidden gem in the city. The entrance and elevator downstairs are somewhat dodgy but the platform itself is very nice. Entrance is 100RM for which you get 2 drinks (standard beer or limited choice of cocktails). We were there at the end of the afternoon and watched the city go from daylight to dark, which definitely made it special.

Staff is somewhat special… can’t say friendly or proactive came to mind. But you know what: once your drink has arrived and you enjoy the view with good company, it doesn’t even bother :-)

Looked forward to enjoy a drink and the beautiful view . Unfortunately, me and my guests each had to pay RM 100 as minimum consumption charge. Such a pity . We always liked to go there. Not any more now. Actually all people who came up with me in the elevator left immediately after hearing about the super high charges... Luckily many other choices of rooftop bars on walking distance..

The concept seemed great: a rooftop bar with 360 views of KL.. but it is very disappointing. One couldn’t mess up this wonderful concept any more than this: from the outside you can barely find the place, no signs no lights, just an office building… after riding up by elevator you arrive at a reception. It looks like a cheap dump: decor is shabby, reception is rude and cheap. It is three levels below the helipad.. attendant demands up front payment before you can go up, presumably because they know how lousy the experience is. Then you climb three floors up in a dark and dirty stairways and you arrive at the top. No lights, just cheap chairs and piped music.. in the stairways are waiters busy texting on their phones instead of serving customers. it’s near impossible to get attention of attendants, can’t order water (?), and after some finger food and BEFORE leaving, attendant rudely demands to be paid immediately.. waiters barely speak English... other people coming down from the pad all had disappointed puzzled look. Like saying: oh well, we won’t go here again..

In summary: insulting, incompetent, cheap and not enjoyable…. If you are looking for an amazing night out, look elsewhere..

Been told it's a bottle policy on Fridays - you order a bottle then get in.
I was alone so they proposed me to buy two drinks for 100 RM - that's too much, but I walked a long way to turn around at that point.
So I entered

The view is breathtaking, but that's it

The first drink(whiskey sour) smelled like dish washing fluid
The second one was okayish but they decided to make another one by mistake and asked me to pay for it - never ordered anything extra, I just asked my two drinks that I paid for on the entrance.
So I refused, and I was stubborn and finally they let me go

The toilet smells like hell.
