Drop KL, the latest addition to The Terraces, TREC Kuala Lumpur, is expected to soon becoming one of the best destinations for remarkable molecular cocktails and hand-picked organic wines, beyond just as KL’s very first modern American restaurant.
The strong team behind the bar, which made up of mixologist experts Tim Clark, Imrani Hossain and certified sommelier Alison Christ, give us enough reason to drop by for a drink last week.
Drop KL is situated at the more quiet corner of TREC, away from the happening main street which has better foot traffic. The extra minutes we spent looking for this place all turned worthwhile, when we walked up the easy-to-overlook staircases (*beside Wine Connection) and get welcomed by a beautiful view of Royal Selangor Golf Club at their al-fresco dining area. So pretty but too bad we couldn’t get a picture of the real scene during our visit, as it was raining heavily.
Moving indoor, thoughtfully designed spaces continued to give us some Wow moments – sleek, stylish bar; cafe like corner for intimate drinking session, Japanese zen-style dining booth, dining floor furnished with marble floorings, high tables and chairs, everything modern contemporary.
