With Kuala Lumpur the perfect jump off point to Europe and Asia, it makes a great spot for pre-wedding festivities. Expedia’s Aussie travellers spend two to three nights in KL – a night on the town to celebrate the wedding countdown with your favourite people? A spot of ever so masculine pampering to have you looking your wedding best?
Here’s the Groom’s Guide to 48 hours in KL.
Drink all the cocktails
If there ever was a bar that makes one feel like a gentlemen (or gentle lady) then The Smoke House, on the grounds of The Majestic Hotel, is it. Think bar tenders in white dinner jackets and bow ties, modern hits remixed into jazz favourites and a cocktail list of classics with Malaysian inspired tipples. The Smoke House has a private room with private chef for something extra special and downstairs? A private screening room showing black and white movies all day, a card and cigar room and a grooming suite.
Tailor all the suits
Last minute suit shopping? Head to Lords Tailor in Bagsar Shopping Centre for the perfect fit. The team here is renowned for their workmanship and attention to detail. Carrying major brands such as Ermenegildo Zegna and Dormeuil, they’ll even create a bespoke suit for your suit loving heart (or sweetheart).
But if you’re looking for a full-bespoke suit experience, word on the street is that Ah Loke Tailor is the place to go. The deceiving shop front, located at 26 Jalan Yap Ah Shak is a treasure trove of finely milled fabrics waiting to be turned into suits for that very special occasion. Each suit meticulously fitted and measurements precisely taken before the final fabric is cut for a suit, this is a suit that’s made just how you like – right down to the lining, buttons and lapels.
