Located at the busy street of Changkat Bukit Bintang, Opium KL’s interior was renovated with inspiration from the Opium regimes of the east. Be surrounded by the romance and mystique of the 1930s-1960s oriental east, inside the dimly lit Opium KL was furnished with artifacts such as an opium bed in the Rose Room, opium pipes and huge Chinese wine pots displayed vividly at the Communal area.
