New Year's Eve in KL

New Year's Eve in KL

Drive into KL early so you don’t get stuck in the inevitable jams, and settle in for a dazzling night of drinking, dining, and maybe eventually dancing, as you ring in the new year. And remember to bring an emergency hangover pack just in case.


Traders Hotel

Nothing beats a view of KLCC park and the fireworks against the Twin Towers at New Year’s. SkyBar have lined up Charlotte Devaney, Natalia Moon, Dennis Lau, and Ezzy on the decks to get you hyped for the new year, and you’re encouraged to book tables or cabanas for the night. Ranging from an intimate table for two on level 34 at RM1,800 inclusive of a bottle of Moët Brut and Singleton 12 Years Old or Belvedere (Package 1), all the way up to a cabana table for six with five bottles of Dom Perignon and with a view of KLCC at RM10,000 (Titanium Package). Otherwise, cover charge is RM150 and includes one glass of Moët Brut. Be smart and book a room at the hotel, because those roads downtown are going to be packed.
