Heineken throws five global parties – Rio de Janeiro, Tokyo, Amsterdam, New York & Malaysia

Skybar, Traders Hotel was the place to be last week, when Heineken threw a party with free flow beers and great music.

Second in a series of parties that are inspired by world’s top party cities, Heineken paints the town red and green this festive season. This December, KL and Penang will be rocking to the vibes of Rio de Janeiro, Tokyo, Amsterdam, New York and Ibiza. At Skybar this week, we were entertained by colorful Harajuku dancers, as the “bar in the sky” was transformed into a party place somewhat reminiscent of Tokyo.


The Skybar, at Traders hotel KL

And I really like what they have done with Skybar. The place has a totally spanking new look. Situated way up on the lofty 33rd floor of Traders Hotel, Skybar now has two rather swanky new bars, a revamped seating area and a culinary bay for food preparation. The signature 26m-long pool remains the highlight of the bar.. that and the gorgeous view of the Petronas Twin Towers of course.

So, if you’re wondering what’s been done so far and where the other themed Heineken Red & Green Celebrations will be held, the venues include:

14 December – 7atenine, The Ascott (Rio de Janeiro)

Renowned for its decadent carnivals and sinfully gorgeous locals, Rio de Janeiro is one of South America’s most festive cities. Get balmy with Heineken as Blastique & Calvin Clarke turn the heat on.

20 December – SkyBar, Traders Hotel (Tokyo)
The embodiment of a progressive Asian city – Tokyo is still one of the best places to party in this region. With an unmistakable view of KLCC, rev up with Ramsey Westwood at Skybar this December.


22 December – Bedroom, Pavilion KL (Amsterdam)

The birthplace of Heineken and a battalion of the world’s top DJs, Amsterdam is pure electricity. Fresh from Heineken Thirst, join Mr Nasty & GuruGuru as they rip off the roof at Bedroom.

24 December – Zouk KL (New York)
The Big Apple remains one of the world’s top destinations for partygoers. Celebrate Christmas Eve like a New Yorker at Zouk KL with crowd’s favourite – LapSap throwing in eclectic beats.


31 December – Sixty9ine Mansion, Penang (Ibiza)
Without a doubt, Ibiza is the ultimate party destination with annual clubber pilgrimages to Pacha, Amnesia and the likes. Ring in the New Year at Sixty9ine Mansion in Penang with Imma*bleep*youup on the decks.


Harajuku girls… sorta!


Red and Green.. Party colors!
