Pisco Bar is one of the most happening and busiest bar in Bukit Bintang. This place is always packed with a multitude of office crowds, tourists, expats and locals. The spacious two-storey establishment can accommodate up to 250 party goers and it hosts a myriad of events throughout the year.
Pisco Bar is also very creative when it comes to organising parties. They have had white party, pisco beach (they brought in tonnes of sands just to create a “beach”), movie nights, tropical Sundays and other fun themes in the past. Make sure to follow their instagram @piscobarkl for the latest happenings.

Pisco, the national drink of Peru is a potent brew! Containing about 45 percent alcohol, the drink still has a mild enough flavor that it can fool beginners. Love how this small glass packs a punch in terms of flavours.
More than just a drinking place, Pisco Bar offers a great range of unique Peruvian and Spanish Tapas.
Fresh, raw fish & seafood quick-marinated in lime juice, onions and chili peppers.
The acid in the juice denatures the proteins in the meat, hence the meat gets “cooked” to some degree. The flesh becomes opaque, the texture firmer and dryer, yet the flavours remain spanking fresh: it’s the perfect zingy dish for a warm weekday night in KL. Nocolas, the owner taught us to down the tiger’s milk like a shot – the citrus-based marinade that is leftover after you finishes the meat. It is the perfect hangover cure, he said.
Assorted Tapas (2 pax, RM 68)
The chopitos (deep fried baby squid) were really delicious and addictive! Love the breaded too – great flavours and textures. You can’t go wrong with the creamy mushroom croquetas and deep fried battered chorizo lollipops. So delicious! We find the grilled chicken skewer a tad too dry for our likings too. All in all, the assorted tapas platter were good and great value for money!!
Oreja de Elefante (RM 42)
Grilled thinly pounded beef steak topped with tomatoes and capers – a classic example of simple dish with great flavours and textures. Also known as “elephant’s ear” due to the wafer-thin pounded beef slices, the combination with a spritz of lime, tomatoes and capers made the meat really delicious.
Paella Mixta (2 pax, RM 80)
It was very well-executed. There was a generous amount of chicken, shellfish and a good smack of good smack of fishiness in the rice, which is consistently cooked without having become dry and hard.
Churros (RM 18)
It was moist and light on the inside with a crispy exterior coated in cinnamon and sugar.
