The Bar KinugawaDamansara

Hidden in a secluded corridor, on the 1st floor of Empire, with no apparent traffic around, this place could easily go unnoticed, luckily it didn't do so completely.

2 masterminds are behind the project, Japanese bartender Osam "Sam" and his Malaysian partner Chin. Rumor has it that Chin met Sam at his previous workplace, in Meguro Jpaan, a bar called Bar Nems, and convinced him to come to Malaysia and open a bar.

The meta name, The Bar, already gives away a bit of what this venue is about. It's remarkably Japanese minimalist design, with humble details, makes you feel at ease right away.

The elevated seating at the counter, which puts you in eye height with the bartender, is designed to stimulate conversation. It has a slight feel of a sushi bar, albeit a very fine one.

About The Bar Kinugawa

The Bar makes it's own ginger ale, which is almost synonymous with Moscow Mule, a cocktail we highly recommend here.
As with everything else here, the menu is sophisticated, yet simple. Don't think that this means they can't make complicated cocktails though.

If you are a fan of mangosteen, you have to try the cocktail inspired by this very fruit.


There are plenty of parking spots in Empire Damansara

Dress Code

You'll want to dress nicely for this, not necessarily over the top, but accordingly.


The terrace here gives a delightful view, and is a great spot to stretch your legs.
