The new zen….
A stone’s throw away from the party hotspots of Jalan Sultan Ismail (opposite Equatorial Hotel), Neo Tamarind is a stunning oasis best described as ‘the new zen’, a domain where you can immerse yourself in the experience of global gourmet tapas, sensual house music and exotic cocktails. The sound of running water at the entrance will divert your attention from the piercing noise of the city below and the uber-cool green space within offers the illusion of being out-of-town. There’s no escaping Neo’s distinctly urbn vibe though. Hypnotic liquid walls, a colossal chandelier and the galactic bar – the longest in KL – are main features of Neo’s interior. Its biggest attraction has to be its Saturday residency, Stilletto which features some truly breathtaking aerial acrobatics – involving a pole. Sexy!Â Â
