There is one place I feel the most at ease in KL. That’s sitting on the swing chair in Mantra with a pisco sour in my hand!

If you want to pose (oh dear!) then you can do that here.

If all you are after are great-tasting, well-made cocktails this is also the place to visit. They don’t come in stupid glasses with plastic umbrellas, but are made simply and correctly. Try the pisco sour, agua fresca and classic margarita, to name but three.

If you just want to relax, this is jewel of a place to come after work.

The staff are friendly and helpful and the food is great for a bar.
Recommended.

Great atmosphere and rooftop view but was very disappointed with the DJ. I requested for a song but instead of politely saying no he responded by saying, "what do I look like to you? I have a playlist and do not play songs of youtube". As a paying customer I retain the right to request for songs. A little word of advice drop the attitude and work on your people skills. I do not know the DJ's name but he played last Friday night (19/01/2018), if the management is serious about addressing customers complaints and confronting the DJ about his poor people skills. Thank you!

I am not the kind to bother with bad service, especially when it comes to F and B. I suppose everyone can understand why, we shouldnt complain about any establishment that serves us food and drinks. But this time, i believe i must. I am disappointed with Mantra the new rooftop bar above bangsar village 2. Service was appalling apart from the fact that one of its waiters poured a cocktail drink all over a friends' dress and bag, we had to haggle for them to pay for dry cleaning bills and restitution,  3 friends did not receive their drinks, we had to ask for water several times before they brought the water and did not bring the glasses. When they served food, it did not come with cutleries. Had to ask for them. We repeatedly asked for napkins and eventually had to take it ourselves. We asked for them to serve the cake that had been delivered to them and they served it w its box. But great thing is they brought plates but were short of forks. But these were not the worst. We accept that mistakes happen, but when we complained to its manager Warren he handled it with intimidation. Very disappointing indeed. I organised this birthday celebration and have been promoting the place to everyone, but the arrogance of the manager leaves all 10 of us with a bitter after taste. Disgusting that though we've paid our attached bill he tried to stiff us with another bill of a more inflated amount out of shere spite. Very unprofessional indeed!

1. Smoking ban already in effect for this visit.

2 weeks ago the the bartender was smoking Vapes behind the bar (they set a nice example don't they). Vapes may or may not be allowed, I am not sure. But why do I have to breathe that smoking during a smoking ban?

Now we visit again. Waiter tells us that after 11pm, they allow smoking cigarettes and cigars.
What is the smoking ban for? This still forces me to breath second hand smoke.

The table next to me during this visit, had a Shisha (Hookah) brought to their table at 8:45pm. The Shisha has nicotine in it and is additive. So it is Smoking!! This is a banned item. So Monday I will report all of this to the Government Hotline.
I am a Cigar smoker, so if I can't do that, no other types of smoking should be allowed. Follow the law. Yes, you want to please the customers so they stay late and buy more alcohol. Too Bad, the law is law.. The Mantra is clearly finding excuses to allow smoking, even though they are breaking the law.

We were having a few beers in the evening and all of a sudden, one of the staff came shouting at us(we were seated having the drinks and our conversation) asking us to "get out" (exact words). We were stumped and did not know how to react to this and after a few exchange of words we left as we were embarrassed by this uncalled for act. We called for the manager who acted as though nothing happened.
Be ready for such gangsterism in the premise.

Mantra rooftop bar is a beautiful place to visit, the service is outstanding all the waiters and bar attended were very attentive and professional. Drinks are bit expensive but good however the food wasn’t as expected. Just make sure you book a table before you go.

We went to the rooftop bar for drinks with friends. The view is amazingly great and so is the vibe. It was fantastic to see the city lighting at night. The cocktails we had were really really good with reasonable price. The atmosphere inside and outside were exclusive. The music wasn't really loud so we were able to have a great conversation and good time with each other. It was so chill and relaxing. I can't wait to go back there again. Awesome experience totally recommended.

This place has a nice vibe / feel to it, casual environment with friendly staff and great food, slightly over priced, they also offer sheesha which is nice, only one problem was when it came to the bill, we came in a large group and they told us we could not spilt the bill, but only waited to inform us at the end rather then mention it when we arrived, otherwise we would have asked to spilt it from the start

Environment is great and staff are very helpful.

We plan to give our friend a birthday surprise and staff there collaborate with us.

Free liquor drinks for those who are birthday on the day.

Personally, i am quite picky when it comes to drinks, particularly cocktails. I savour my drink bit by bit and ingredients in the concoction must be in precise ratio. So my girlfriend and i checked this new bar out in May since we were living just around the corner, and we were astounded by the interior. The bar is beautiful, exuding a beach vibe and overlooking the skyline of Kuala Lumpur, at the same time the neighborhood of Bangsar. They offer a few cabanas in an open space along with normal seatings so you get to choose where to dine in or have a few drinks.

However i was not impressed with our drinks at all. I had a whisky sour that was extremely sweet, and sour, can't taste egg white at all but was surely visible in my drink and wasn't very chilled to begin with. So i gave their drinks another shot and ordered old fashioned. Again i was equally disappointed if not more as the cocktail tasted like the one i ordered before! I thought the waiter made a mistake but i was reassured that i was indeed having an old fashioned, not another whisky sour.
My second drink was sweet , void of citrus rind, tasted a lot like lime juice, not sure if there's any alcohol in it, it was horrible.
All in, i wouldn't go to this bar ever for drinks, but wouldn't mind going again for food and to spend a cozy evening with family and friends .
