UPDATE- 7 atenine closed in 2013 for redesign and re-branding- now operating as TUJO
March 30th, 2011
Occupying a prominent position at the street level frontage of the Ascott Residences in central Kuala Lumpur, behind luxuriant foliage and an open glass front, 7atenine projects a welcoming presence. Originally opened in 2006, and having undergone a facelift in 2010 to freshen up, 7atenine is a unique, award winning concept for social lifestyle entertainment- blending drinks and dining, with chill lounge and the more energetic clubbing experience later in the evenings. Owned and operated by the same group behind the uber-popular WIP in Bangsar, and SOUledOUT in Desa Sri Hartamas, 7atenine , like its sister establishments, has become one of the most acclaimed dining and socialising destinations in KL.
The space itself is divided into two levels -with the main ground floor area consisting of a large central bar, lounge area and stage; and the mezzanine level also featuring dining tables around the curved floor, and a private room at one end. The entire space is fronted by full height glass and is partially open to the outside environment. Large transparent roofing panels extend out from above the mezzanine level accenting the “openness” of the space- and providing views across the road of the iconic KLCC “Twin Towers” . The design is sleek and modern- with mostly white furniture and finishes, contrasted with features such as old railway sleeper timber floors, a huge metal bladed overhead fan fitted to the mezzanine ceiling, and striking metallic gold “champagne” back-bar designs- the main bar on the ground floor is shaped to resemble a champagne cork, whilst the one on the mezzanine level is shaped like a champagne flute. Color changing LED lighting adjusts the mood during the course of the evening, and complimented by a robust sound system that transitions from an early evening chill ambiance to a more upbeat tempo later in the evenings.
The chef at 7atenine has prepared an extensive menu of cosmopolitan dishes- with an emphasis on clean, simple tastes and fresh ingredients. The menu includes “Social Dining” – selections designed for sharing around the bar such as lamb meatballs, beef estofado, feta cheese & fruit, tempura maguro, moorish kebabs, pizzas, and soft shell crab. Then for the full dining experience on the mezzanine level -the house specialties include fresh oysters, soups and salads, fillet steak, angel hair pasta, fresh seafood, and desserts such as date cake and tiramisu.
The bar offerings are highlighted by house specialty cocktails, an extensive selection of wines by the glass, vintage wines from the cellar, champagnes, premium spirits, and beers- bottled and draft. Notable cocktail highlights include the “Classic Mojito”, “Thaipirinha” and “Lychee Martini”, plus many varieties of margarita, daiquiris, etc..
There are special drinks promotions and events held nightly- see details listed below.
Either for after-work gatherings of business colleagues for drinks, dinner with friends, or late night partying, 7atenine is admirably fulfilling it’s concept as a unique lifestyle destination for socialising and dining in the urban heart of KL.
