With Christmas behind us and only a handful of days left before the need to swap calendars and to get accustomed to writing ‘2018’ instead of ‘2017’ arises, the hunt is definitely on for the best New Year’s Eve parties.
If you are spending the momentous moment here in Kuala Lumpur, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to deciding where you’ll be when the clock strikes midnight. Lined up below are some of the best picks of countdown events happening throughout the city.
KL Tower New Year’s Eve Celebration
Quite likely the highest NYE bash in the city, see in 2018 from the Sky Deck at one of Kuala Lumpur’s most-celebrated landmarks, the KL Tower. Perched some 300 metres in air, guests will be treated to spectacular views of the surrounding metropolis at this family-friendly celebration.
New Year’s Eve At Marini’s on 57
The classy enclave that is Marini’s is also a magnificent vantage point from which to gaze upon the vibrant city. With three distinct portions to this rooftop bar, Italian restaurant, and whisky and cigar lounge, expect it to provide a feast for the senses on the last evening of 2017.
Light And Motion Putrajaya (LAMPU)
A familiar fixture at the Malaysian administrative capital, LAMPU is a treat for the eyes, making it a wonderful way to welcome the new year. Illumination-based dazzlers, such as holographic visuals and 3D projection mapping affairs, will culminate in a unique fireworks show as 2018 appears.
Colours, and lots of them, are this NYE party’s trademark. The Neon Countdown calls for a pulsing good time; the gathered crowd at Sunway Lagoon Surf Beach covered with glowing paints and invigorated by the hottest dance tracks, cutting loose in anticipation of the New Year.
Zouk Mega Block Party
KL’s definitive superclub will be seeing 2017 out with a bang, throwing a thematic Lego party that is awash with plenty of festivity. Its rooms bedecked with the blocks in a great twist to usual NYE celebrations, Zouk is sure to build up the excitement for 2018 nicely.
