Marini's on 57 to Celebrate 10 Years with festivities during October

Multi-award winning Marini’s on 57 is celebrating a memorable decade of good food, fine wine and great company. Since its opening in June 2012, the luxury dining and entertainment establishment has become a preferred venue for numerous events and celebrations, as well as a beacon for international celebrities, tourists, and socialites.

This iconic rooftop destination which comprises a rooftop bar, lounge, and Italian contemporary restaurant sits 876ft (267m) above sea level in the heart of Kuala Lumpur City and offers the closest view of the Petronas Twin Towers and panoramic views of the city.

Founded by Cavaliere Modesto Marini, Marini’s on 57 is designed to offer guests a unique dining and sensory experience. It has and continues to make its mark in the local and global culinary scene as the finest hospitality and entertainment venue in Kuala Lumpur.

When we first started this culinary journey, it was to share my passion for food and my vision for a world-class venue with the Malaysian public and the world. In addition to that, I have made it a point to promote Italy in my life and my work because it is a part of me. I believe that food is love and my love for food has led me to where I am today,” said Cav. Modesto.

It has been a rewarding experience on many different levels and we are grateful for the many relationships we have built with so many over the years. We would like to extend a heartfelt ‘Thank you’ to our guests, staff and partners for their support and look forward to sharing many more delightful moments together,” he added.

This significant 10-year milestone will see the establishment marking the occasion with festivities in October to do just that. The anniversary theme is Viva Marini and the line-up of activities includes a founder's menu, a bartending competition, bartender guest shifts and an anniversary party to end the October celebrations with a bang. 



To showcase its fine contemporary Italian cuisine, the establishment is offering a tantalising 10-course Founder’s Menu at the Marini’s on 57 Restaurant. Guests will be able to savour reinterpretations of the 10 popular dishes which have been served over the years. This includes Pan-Seared Foie Gras. Hokkaido Scallops, Seared Cod Fish, a choice of pasta with lobster or truffles, and desserts. The Founder’s Menu will be available from 1 October 2022.

For cocktail lovers, look out for the Viva Marini Guest Shift Series which kicks off at the Marini’s on 57 Bar on 10 October 2022. The guest bartenders lined up are Rizal Junior, Bastien Michaud and Symphony Loo. Junior was the head bartender of the pioneer team at Marini’s on 57 and the Sabahan returns to his old stomping grounds on 10 October to work his brand of mixology magic for one night.

Michaud is Pernod Ricard’s brand ambassador for Martell, Mumm and Perrier-Jouet. The Frenchman is a food and drink enthusiast with extensive knowledge of wine and spirits. Catch him in action on 17 October as he displays his bartending skills – honed from working in trendy cocktail bars in Paris – to create delicious concoctions for the evening.

One of the rare roses among the thorns in the bartending community, Loo is the Campari Group’s Regional Brand Ambassador for Southeast Asia and the On Premise Channel Manager for South East Asia and India. She rose to prominence in 2017 when she was awarded the “Rising Star of the Year” at the Singapore Bar Awards and when she later won the Codigo Competition that same year. Loo will be showcasing her skills on 20 October at the Marini’s on 57 Anniversary Party.

Marini’s on 57 is also looking to shake and stir things up in October with the Viva Marini Bartending Competition at the Marini's on 57 Lounge. The top bartender will walk away with a cash prize of RM10,000 while second and third place will receive RM5,000 and RM3,000 respectively.

For the preliminary round, participants will need to send in an original cocktail recipe and a video of themselves making an open format cocktail of their choice. The videos may be submitted from 3 to 30 October 2022. Ten finalists will be shortlisted and the winner crowned at the final event in November.

The selected bartenders will have to present three original cocktails – two themed ones using certain spirits, and one open format cocktail – in a live event at the Marini’s on 57 Lounge on 14 November. A panel of judges will taste and vote to decide the winner of the Viva Marini Bartending Competition.

Those interested in participating in the Viva Marini Bartending Competition are advised to visit and follow Marini’s on 57 on Instagram for further information.

October is traditionally when Marini’s on 57 holds its anniversary parties and this year’s event is set to be big bash. The Marini’s on 57 Viva Marini 10th Anniversary Party on 20 October will feature guest deejay and Grammy Award nominee Timo Maas. The German deejay and producer returns to the Marini’s on 57 Bar to take over the decks for the night and will spin his brand of electronic dance music.
