Bet you've never seen a bar so pretty and colourful like this! Plus points because it's a rooftop bar, something rare in JB! Even though it is only 3 floors high, you can still see the peaceful JB streets at night with cars cruising by and with music as your accompaniment...
Introducing Mad16° Rooftop Bar & Lounge by none other than One63 European Bistro & Bar! As promised, I'll be talking about the adjoined bar in another post and here you go! But first, have you read the food review at One63 here? Both are managed by the same people, both are a different concept, both serve different crowds but fret not, you can be sure to get the best experience from both sides of the room. Literally, because the restaurant and bar are just separated by a door and lift XD
PS: You can take this lift downstairs, right up to the 2nd floor to the rooftop bar, without having to climb stairs or go through One63.
Let's take a tour at the 1st floor of the bar first. Ground floor is off-limits btw, as renovation is ongoing for an upcoming project ;) This is a indoor dining cum drinking area and what I like about it is that it has ample space and bright lighting to make the place feel more homely. Somehow I also feel like this will be a good place to study in the afternoons, since no smoking is allowed? HAHA. Do note that currently you can only access this part of the bar from the rooftop bar, where you can take the lift up then the stairs down to this area.
There's even a pool table here to mingle and kill time while hanging out with friends!
Smoking is allowed in this outdoor area for smokers to hang out, but it is a little quiet. I've yet to see anyone sit here though, maybe because it's quite hot, so the bar counter is usually empty. The view is quite nice though, it's facing Double Tree by Hilton Hotel.
Me being me, I made my bf take a Carinn x OOTD shot for me (ignore the dustbin).

It was pretty early in the evening when I arrived, so the upstairs was still bright. Check out the huge array of liquor, whiskey, mixers etc at the bar!
Ample seating space available upstairs, great for parties too. Upstairs is really windy as well. I love this section the most, cos the tables and chairs light up at night and makes the whole place look colourful. The only downside is if it rains, there's no shelter.
Currently, Mad16° is having a Happy Hour promo (they call it The Great Hour) for 10 glasses of Tiger Beer at only RM100 NETT! Even more reason to bring your friends here to party right? The amount of beer you're getting is equivalent to a tower already.
Yes, a TOWER.
Mr Bartender cooked up a few drinks for us at the bar. Did I mention that cocktails are my favourite alcoholic drinks? These two drinks are not on the menu yet though, so I can't tell you their names. The green one is really minty and fresh while the pink one is more suited for ladies, with lemon and berries. Among both, I liked the green one better cos the pink one tastes a little like cough medicine XD
So if you're looking for a place to chill on the weekends, drop by Mad16° Rooftop Bar & Lounge! DJ Skinny J will be spinning at the bar every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday night as well. Happy Friday, guys!
