Il Lido (located off Jalan Yap Kwan Seng, Kuala Lumpur) launched its rooftop lounge on 26 November 2010 with a cocktail party for invited guests and media.
As the restaurant was right opposite my office building I took the opportunity to attend the event with my colleagues while waiting out the horrible jam caused by the heavy evening shower.
To get to the lounge you will need to go to the back of the building where there is a doorway that leads to a lift. Or you could just climb the stairs. I recommend the lift.
The lounge itself is semi-covered (which is definitely important in Malaysia) with sofas lining the perimeter and high cocktail tables towards the centre. On this night we were treated to an array of canapes, cocktails, pizzas and a mountain of bread and cheese.
Definitely a nice spot to have a drink after work if you don’t want to be stuck in the jam.
