Desire Bar In Damansara Heights: Seductive Red & New Cocktails

The recently opened bar has established itself as flaming hot spot for bar goers and cocktail enthusiasts in the area. Being the brainchild of entrepreneur and nightlife veteran Shawn Luke, Desire has set the path to recreating Kuala Lumpur’s nightlife in a new red light.

As you gracefully waltz into Desire the upbeat music will set you in the right mode for a fun night ahead! The dimmed lights and red around you make the space beam with a classy feel of red intimacy. And as Shawn Luke, co-owner puts it: “The bar’s interior is meticulously crafted to blend opulence with an intimate ambiance”. 

Desire only aims for unparalleled cocktails that can blow you away which is easily accomplished with the head of mixology & the industry veteran McKay Jiplin whose expertise is vouched for from some of Southeast Asia’s most renowned establishments. Setting your expectations on an unparalleled plane, Desire has crafted a selection of 12 cocktails featuring a fusion of flavors and introducing exotic ingredients such as Black Truffle and Vodka infused Jackfruit which make up some of their signature drinks that I think will appeal to a wide range of different palates.

During Happy Hour the crowd indulge in their new favorite concoctions and enjoy the relaxed space rewinding and chatting about anything but work and after dark the scene shifts to a vibrant tone with beats and dance moves and many cocktails off the counter!

With more than a decade of expertise in the Food & Beverage industry, Shawn has recently launched not one but two bars in the span of days. Desire and its sister speakeasy, The Record Speakeasy which from the name of it pays homage to the golden vinyl days. It’s quite the transitional experience when walking from Desire into The Record which sits right at back, it feels like two different eras. Time Travel made possible.

“Desire & The Record are eras apart, some have said worlds apart as they transition from either one of these beautiful havens. It was designed to bring two completely different vibes and cater to a class above.” Says Shawn.

Whether red is your favourite lipstick color or you’re someone who appreciates bold and new flavors. Look no further this is where you want to go!
