The Swimming Club Makes a splash in the heart of Kuala Lumpur


Kuala Lumpur, get ready for an exciting new pool bar with the arrival of The Swimming Club at The Kuala Lumpur Journal Hotel. The eclectic pool bar at The KL Journal Hotel officially opens this September 2018. Located on the 11th floor rooftop, The Swimming Club is the perfect place to get sun-kissed, unwind with friends, and share sundown moments with classic cocktails with a local twist in hand.

In-line with the hotel’s approach to independent design, the newly revamped pool bar takes cues inspired by a tropical Mid-Century look with a retro Malaysian touch. Think Palm Springs, Penang Island Architecture and Wes Anderson. The resulting aesthetic with striking splashes of colour, eye-catching details and motifs sets this unique pool bar apart from other rooftop venues in Kuala Lumpur.
