The city centre welcomes its finest hideaway yet
Nestled on the 8th floor of Pavilion Elite, Saro Lounge is the newest lounge and restaurant to open its doors to the city’s eclectic mix of patrons. Whether you’re looking for an intimate escape with your closest friends, or a place to catch up with your friends and colleagues after work, Saro offers an exquisite setting for any occasion. Saro, which is Italian for “I will”, is more than just its namesake, but also a testament to its commitment to providing guests with memorable experiences and quality service.
“Our vision for Saro Lounge is to offer our patrons a hideout within the city that isn’t just about the food and drinks, but the entire experience. An exquisite cocktail paired with flavourful dishes, complemented by eclectic tunes and a comfortable setting for you and your friends – it’s about offering a combination that elevates all five senses,” commented Kesavan Purusotman, one of the partners behind Saro Lounge.
The lounge is an embodiment of the finer things in life, boasting sophisticated wood finishing, and elegant leather seats to complement the elaborate bar showcasing a variety of premium and craft spirits. However, Saro Lounge’s architectural highlights is its state-of-the-art light feature that has been cleverly integrated into the ceiling – the first of its kind in Malaysia. The light feature boasts an impressive multitude of configurations to suit any mood, adding to the overall ambiance of the main lounge area. Larger groups that would prefer a more private setting will be able to enjoy the comforts of Saro’s Private Room, equipped with karaoke facilities and its very own restroom.
With a collection fit for any discerning drinker, the bar offers a delectable range of cocktails made of the freshest ingredients and inspired by Asian flavours. Saro’s signature cocktails bring their own unique twist on the classics, with drinks such as the Saro Sour and the Rum Negroni. A refreshing favourite is the Signature Monkey 47, which combines fresh and floral flavours into a simple yet flavourful cocktail.
Fruitapalooza consists of coconut rum dry shaken with dark rum and sweet & sour puree, topped up with a touch of sprite, served in a chilled glass & garnished with a fresh lemon slice while the Mischefier blends dark rum with cocoa liquor and pineapple juice, topped with a touch of angostura & garnished with cherry blossom and strawberry.
Inspired by his Thai background, Head Chef Nopporn Nutto along with Chef Faizal have conceptualized a menu showcasing a contemporary variety of small plates and main course dishes. For those looking for hors ’doeuvres to accompany their drinks, Saro’s Signature Shells offers 6 bite-sized pieces of Crispy Fillo pastry topped with different toppings consisting of Beef, Chicken, Tomato, Mushroom, Avocado and Smoked Salmon or go for the Pizza Quesadillas, pockets of cheesy goodness filled with Peppers, Tomatoes and Onions, drizzled with Guacamole Mayonnaise and stuffed with Beef or Chicken.
Those seeking a more substantial meal can opt for pasta sautéed in Saro’s homemade Fusion Pesto sauce served with either Chicken or Soft-Shell Crab. Meat-lovers would appreciate the Grilled Australian Beef/Lamb on Skewers marinated with Garlic, Pepper and Capsicum, accompanied by a bowl of fragrant Garlic Fried Rice.
Apart from offering an impeccable combination of delicious food, decadent cocktails and eclectic music on a daily basis, Saro Lounge is an ideal venue for hosting private parties and events. Equipped with a quality sound system and LCD screens upon request, the lounge is able to accommodate events for about 130 – 150 pax.
