KUALA LUMPUR – 20 September 2022: V’s Bar, a unique Whisky and Cigar lounge under PETRA Lifestyle, has been recognized at Malaysia’s Top 30 Bar Awards 2022, a platform to recognize and raise the standards of bars and beverage service in the country.
President of PETRA Lifestyle, Roberto Guiati said winning the award was truly an honour. “Winning an award like this within our first year in operation is a great recognition and all of us are highly motivated by it. The recognition has also given us great passion to continue providing a wonderful dining and entertainment experience for all our customers,” he said.
Besides providing an array of carefully crafted food, including imported fresh oysters and premium caviar, there is also an extensive beverage selection, which includes over 100 premium whiskies, a line of signature cocktails made by some of the best mixologist in the country and an exquisite selection of French and Italian wines.
Located strategically at Menara Amplewest Kuala Lumpur, V’s Bar is just above another of PETRA Lifestyle’s premium offerings, Zenzero Restaurant & Wine Bar. Incidentally, V’s Bar came to fruition out of PETRA Group Chairman Datuk (Dr) Vinod Sekhar’s love for whisky, cigars and entertaining. Managing Director of Top 30 Bars Awards, Alvin Sinclair said that the awards were created with the aim of identifying and enhancing the standards of the country’s best bars. "As Malaysia’s Top 30 Bar Awards will be an annual occurrence, it encourages the previously awarded bars to maintain a certain standard of knowledge, creativity, and service to make it into the following year’s list,” he said.
The rankings and awards are exclusively based on a poll of over 50 bar enthusiasts, beverage influencers and industry experts. The 2022 award programme kicked off with the nominations of 220 bars listed throughout Peninsular Malaysia. It was shortlisted to 100 bars where a group of industry selected juries evaluated the bars to make the final cut of 50 bars before the full list of Top 30 bars were presented at the final gala award, held at Mandarin Oriental Hotel.
Malaysia’s Top 30 Bar Awards is presented by Chivas Regal with other partners including Martell, Jameson, Heineken, Guinness, Absolut, Beefeater, The Glenlivet, Lillet, GH Mumm, Perrier, Monin, Fiji Water and Umai.
