Far from sleepy….
Unlike Asian cities like the jumping Hong Kong and Shanghai, and buzzing Bangkok and Jakarta, KL is pretty horizontal in its approach.Â Our pace is so steadfastly unhurried, why fight it? Bedroom hasn’t, instead choosing to embrace KL’s louche ways by taking it to a whole other level – Pavilion’s 6th level. Nestled behind adjoining resaurant Markethall, Bedroom is a where the city’s beautiful come to unravel after work/ shopping and watch the sun set on the business district through its floor-to-ceiling windows. For such a chic place – midway between Laundry and Rootz – Bedroom is surprisingly unpretentious, and its music policy as eclectic, experimental and exquisitely mixed as its cocktails.
