CAN YOU TELL US A STORY, A FAMOUS ANECDOTE ABOUT THIS PLACE THAT MAKES IT UNIQUE?

Inspired by the Gilded Ages, the Astor Bar located on Level 2 of the Hotel, is a bar and lounge combining modern-day glamour with old-world elegance, much like the city that it resides in, Kuala Lumpur. The brass-trimmed paneled entrance with its custommade hammered-brass door knobs, reveal an inviting bar area set against dark wooden shutters, brass accents, rich leathers, horsehair wall panels, luxurious black-and gold marble, and gold leaf ceilings. Set away from Astor Bar's main entrance, is a discreet entrance to a private room, offering the ultimate experience for those seeking seclusion. The Astor Bar's Cigar Lounge is equipped with a special air filtration system and private storage lockers for personal prized cigar collections. The richly layered and exacting detailed interior of the premier bar at The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur, convey the hallmark St. Regis heritage and legacy of the Astors. The bar and lounge offers an extensive variety of champagne, spirits and fine vintage wines, as well as The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur's Signature Bloody Mary.

IF THIS PLACE WAS A SONG, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

It would go perfectly with Dean Martin – 'That's Amore'

HOW DID YOU BECOME SO PASSIONATE ABOUT WINE & SPIRITS?

I started my career in the hospitality industries by working at the bar; and that was how I developed my passions about wines and spirits. Even though I was young and carefree back then, but I always believed that I have an old soul. And I do love the perfections of making wines.

HOW AND WHEN DID YOU FIRST DISCOVER LOUIS XIII?

In my father's wine closet – when I was 18 years old.

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY ABOUT LOUIS XIII TO SOMEONE WHO HAS NEVER TASTED IT?

Today is the day – take chances, raise a glass!

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST DREAM IN LIFE?

To have my very own brand of hotel.
