Have you ever heard about the Jungle Bird Cocktail? Well, Jungle Bird is a notorious tiki cocktail from Kuala Lumpur. It was made in 1978 at the Aviary bar of the Kuala Lumpur Hilton, as a welcome drink that becomes popular in no time. Therefore, you can find it served in a lot of places nowadays. One of those places is even named after it, and this Jungle Bird flies high. Not only that, it is one of the best cocktail bars in Kuala Lumpur, but it is also the number 44 on Asia’s best bars in 2019. Now enjoy our JungleBird Bar Review.
This tiki bar is only a few minutes away from Sofitel Damansara but in a more quiet part of the KL. Creative solutions are visible on every step of the JungleBird Bar tiki bar. Rattan furniture, bamboo, rainforest wallpaper, and rather disappointing plastic greenery will surround you.
It can happen that for a moment, you might even forget you are still in a metropolitan city. At JungleBird Bar in Kuala Lumpur, you’ll be at ease in no time. We only missed windows, which would make conditions for real greenery and a fresh air provider.
JungleBird Bar Menu
Tiki cocktails and in-house creations were our primary focus. Nevertheless, if you prefer something else, you’ll be happy to hear they serve beers, ciders, spirits, as well as red and white wines. In addition to that, you’ll also find the abundant rum section on the JungleBird menu. On top of that, add the alcohol-free mixed drinks and commercial soft drinks that everybody loves; tea, coffee, juice, fizz? You name it!
Daily from 5 PM to 9 PM, and on Sundays, the JungleBird KL caters to the Jolly O’clock menu. On the happy hour, the JungleBird menu is a handful of cocktails, rums, spirits, and tap beer. Really, this is just the limited addition to the regular menu at a happy price.
This tiki cocktail is sweet and quite strong on Diplomatico Mantuano rum with apparent Campari bitters. We immediately got the idea of a hot and humid place, where something direct is needed. Our cold indoor situation pointed us towards solving a mystery of bittersweet Campari liquor.

JungleBird Kombucha Coolers
Kombucha is tricky and probably the reason why this mocktail is made in small batches. Also, fragrant lavender, lemongrass, chrysanthemum, and camomile, need some time to develop such a divine smell. Honestly, floral fragrance is part of a wonderful aftertaste that gets wings on kombucha fizz.
And the last words for our JungleBird Bar Review… The reason for such a success of the JungleBird bar Kuala Lumpur are great drinks. With creative mixology comes music, and passion evolves. No wonder this bar is a great addition to Kuala Lumpur’s nightlife. It is unique and away from prying eyes. Still, I can’t stop dreaming of this being the rooftop bar… Hopefully, someday it will be.
However, as a downside, we should mention no side snacks with our cocktails, and a few fails in a presentation.
