Why it's special
JungleBird has carved a unique avenue for itself by being a 'rumah rum' or a house of rum. If the idea of endless rum doesn't sound enticing enough, JungleBird's tiki-inspired interior, complete with fern-printed walls and rattan furniture will seal the deal for you – just think of all the Instagram opportunities! The friendly in-house bartenders along with the ol' school dance music also add to the easygoing, tropical vibe of the bar.
What to order
The bar's namesake cocktail, the Jungle Bird (RM40) is a definite must-try. Fun fact: the Jungle Bird drink was actually invented right here in KL back in the 1970s, so no better place to try a local concoction than in a specialised rum house, right?
Made of Diplomatico Mantuano rum, Campari, fresh lime and pineapple juice and garnished with pineapple leaves, the Jungle Bird is refreshing and light with just enough kick. Have your phones ready; this cocktail is definitely #Instaworthy.
A chill night out with family and/or friends or as a vacation-replacement, thanks to its hidden paradise vibe.
JungleBird has an amazing ladies' night deal on Thursdays from 9pm to midnight. Stop by to indulge in free selected rum cocktails and feel your blues fly away.
