Whether you’re the kind of traveler who likes to get to the airport hours early or a seasoned jetsetter who times it to the minute, there’s a great new reason to enjoy your journey through klia2 with the launch of newly refurbished Bar Metropole, a new whisky and cocktail bar.
Located just before you enter the Eraman duty free store, Bar Metropole is a haven for whisky lovers, with a choice of over five blends from DEWAR’S, crafted with a unique double-aging process for additional smoothness making it the world’s most awarded blended scotch whisky.
If single malt is more your style, choose from a wide range of award-winning single malts such as CRAIGELLACHIE, AULTMORE and ABERFELDY, the hottest single malts in Malaysia right now. There’s also ROYAL BRACKLA the first whisky to be awarded royal warrant status, giving it the nickname, The King’s Own Whisky. Every single whisky behind the bar carries an age statement, so you can enjoy every drop while appreciating that with quality comes time.
Offering an international menu of international cocktails, wine, beer and soft drinks including freshly brewed coffee and mocktails, this is a vibrant, contemporary space to take a pause from the busy terminal and enjoy the time before your flight. The extensive cocktail menu features signature brands GREY GOOSE vodka, BOMBAY SAPPHIRE gin and the wide range of BACARDÍ rums.
And if you’re not drinking, try out the glass dome vapour machines that transform the incredible whisky range on offer into liquid vapour for the ultimate multi-sensory experience. There’s also a neat bar game, DEWAR’S double whisky pong, inspired by the American College game. The bar menu features classic burgers and fries.
