Elevate your evenings with a pool party paired with creative cuisine and cool cocktails here, run by the experienced founders of Pahang's Puteh Beach Bar in Kuantan and KL's The Crane in Chinatown.
Striking in white and turquoise, Puteh Rooftop Bar, located at Eco Tree Hotel, looks set to be one of Melaka's must-explore destinations, chilled out and mellow on weekdays, upbeat when the weekend rolls in.
Perched high with a bird's eye perspective of the historical city, Puteh Rooftop Bar is a wonderful wide-open space to savour the skyline at sunset. Head here before dusk and stay for a delectable dinner and drinks - or come earlier, since Puteh is open for lunch and tea starting 12pm everyday.
Comfortable corners beckon throughout Puteh Rooftop Bar, from plush seats for alfresco mingling to pleasant tables indoors for a cafe-style experience - complete with a killer view that remains captivating all the way to midnight.
With a genre-hopping playlist of great music and a diverse line-up of live performances each weekend, Puteh Rooftop Bar beckons guests to hop into the pool or lounge by the blue waters while clinking Champagne, cocktails and mocktails that embrace locally influenced ingredients.
