THE GEM OF KUALA LUMPUR

At the heart of the trendy Bukit Bintang district lies the perfect reason to indulge in fashion, food and urban leisure. Experience the excitement of this 1.37 mil sq ft retail haven with over 550 outlets offering the finest fashion and home furnishing to entertainment and culinary delights. Let the endless appeal of Malaysia’s premier shopping destination awaken your senses the moment you arrive at its doorstep.

Pavilion Kuala Lumpur is KL’s haute couture shopping Mecca. It takes a lot to stand out in the city’s mallscape but this shopping centre, which occupies prime real estate along Jalan Bukit Bintang, does just that. Opened in 2007 it has three major sections – a retail mall, an office block and two residential towers.

 

Keeping the city’s fashionistas looking polished, this KL staple is the perfect example of how extravagant some malls can be. It features almost the same staggering square footage as Mid Valley Megamall and 1 Utama and the 1.37 million-sqft white marble complex is a combination of indoor and outdoor shopping venues.

It resembles an oversized Grecian temple with post modern pillars, but instead of torches and an altar with a statue of Zeus, it houses over 450 snazzy stores. With hip dining options, big-box retailers and access to both international designer labels and local specialty retailers, Pavilion KL is a favourite among KL-ites. Popular no matter the day of the week or time of day, the seven-storey lifestyle centre has six shopping ‘zones’ and a row of street boutiques.

There is a food court (Gourmet Emporium) on the lower ground floor where you can get reasonably priced Korean, Japanese and local fare. Strategically placed around the food court are upmarket restaurants like Manhattan Fish Market, Dragon-I, Tony Roma’s and Madam Kwan’s. Cosmopolites usually dine at Connection, an outdoor strip with restaurants such as Tom, Dick & Harry’s Live and The Pressroom Bistro. These places provide entertainment (think live local bands and televised soccer matches on projector screens) and alcohol to go with their meals.

Those looking for brands that do not carry such hefty price tags can head to Fashion Avenue where brands like Laura Mercier and Victoria’s Secret can be found.
