5 Dining Spots for Car & Bike Lovers
There are many concept cafés out there especially in Malaysia! These concept cafés are blooming until today. From pet cafés, to garden cafés, to car cafés, the possibilities are endless! Here are a few cafés that are towards the auto concept.
The Garage KL
This place is described as a petrolhead’s haven! You got that right. Located in Ampang Kuala Lumpur, the Garage KL is the brainchild of Tengku Azman. The built-parts are from stacks of containers with a unique landscape. This is the place where you can eat, shop, get a haircut, feast your eyes on vehicles and even send your car to the workshop! Talk about all in one. Not forgetting to mention, it is an “insta-grammable” spot as well. Besides all the activities, Garage KL also rents out event spaces for different types of functions.
Venue: Jalan Hillview, Taman Sri Ukay, 68000 Ampang, Selangor
The Gasket Alley
The ambience and design of this place is rugged and urban. This is the place for petrol-heads, custom motorcycles, dining and even getting a tattoo! In the evening, the place is filled with after-office hour peeps getting into the watering hole (If you get what I mean). If you are familiar with the famous “Tiffin & Riuh event 2019”, here’s where it is at. The Gasket Alley is a curated space founded by a group of friends in 2015. You can even test-ride the two oldest motorcycle brands at Moto Guzzi and Harley Davidson showroom.
Venue: Lot 15, 13, Jalan 13/6, Seksyen 13, 46200 Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia
The Bandar Sunway area in Petaling Jaya, Selangor is no stranger towards the automotive scene. The area is filled with car workshops and detailing centres. This is the area where gear-heads come for car tuning, modification and even just taking a look at supercars.

Inspired by the “Garage” concept, the owners of Garage 51 also owns 2 other cafés; Coffee Société & Underground Société.
