1. Las Carretas Restaurant & Bar

Las Carretas is a popular name for Mexican fare in the Klang Valley. Here is also where you can indulge in eight (yes, eight!) margarita creations, one of which involves a bottle of chilled Corona or Desperadoes stuck upside down into your frozen margarita glass.

3. Joloko

Joloko is not only known for its Caribbean fare but also its wide selection of tequila and mezcal so it's simply common sense that they serve a mean margarita. In fact, they serve two versions of it: One made with the classic tequila and another with cointreau mezcal.

4. Skullduggery

This little steampunk-y haunt serves up some of the city's most crafty cocktails. Its version of the margarita is no exception. Say hello to the Toreador, what the bar calls a precursor to the margarita that is made with Ocho Blanco Tequila. 

Skullduggery | 2M Plaza Damansara, Jalan Medan Setia 2, Bukit Damansara, 50490 Kuala Lumpur | +6017 266 7335 | Tuesday-Thursday, 6pm-1am; Friday, 7pm-3am; Saturday, 8pm-3am

Every day is Tapas Tuesday and Tequila Tuesday at Pinchos. Amongst the long list of cocktails on its menu is the fantastic classic margarita.
