Leonardo's Wine Cellar - Jalan Bangkung, Bangsar (Formerly The Attic)

Add: 61-2, Jalan Bangkung, Bukit Bandaraya, Bangsar, KL

The Attic at Jalan Bangkung is no more ... it held many fond memories of my dear cousin singing, and many a wine evening ... but it has now been replaced with Leonardo's. This is my first visit here, and it was a wonderful chilled out evening with red wine.

There are lots of easy-reading books including titles by Bryson, LonelyPlanet guides etc on the bookshelf beside the bar, as well as gorgeous prints and paintings (Such as the large original piece at the stairwell by Singaporean-based Malaysian Eric Chan). I especially like the vintage safe from Melaka which houses more books, as Leonardo's believes that knowledge is precious!

I love the bare brick walls, which were exposed when the plaster and paint from The Attic's old decor was removed!


An Italian (under the same management) will soon open below Leonardo's bar, I can't wait! Watch this space ... February 2009!

Jar of Faith - No worries, it maintained the special smoke-free environment. I love the "new" walls with the bare-brick look ;-)
