Oops. They have moved to CapSquare in KL (since Dec 2008).
I have not been to their new location.... so my review is pretty much completely obsolete but here are the new contact details for you (just in case):
(New) Name: Urbanattic @ KL
Address: G-46 CapSquare, No. 7 Persiaran Capsquare, Off Jalan Ampang, Capital Square, 50100 Kuala Lumpur

I love the ambience here.... It's arty, airy and modern with funky furniture and cool colours with a stark contrast of a bright red chandelier near the stairwell:
I have been there twice and noticed that they change the art pieces periodically, which is nice.
There are also some delicious desserts to try there:
I can't remember the names but they were all very yummy.
They usually have 2 or 3 different types of pastries at a time (priced at RM10 each) and the selection is changed daily... There is only a limited amount though, so if you're not lucky then it may have run out by the time you go there for drinks at night.
(They also have an ala carte menu of Spanish/ Italian food here but I haven't tried it yet)
There is also a range of classic drinks as well as interestingly named drinks (some of the names are quite naughty! *blush*). Generally, they taste pretty good and are moderately priced (not expensive but not cheap either) at around RM18++ to RM28++ for cocktails.
The major plus point for me is that they are a smoke free bar.
(Yay - no second hand smoke!)
Smokers will have to puff on their cancer sticks on the adjoining balcony area.
Sadly, this is probably the exact reason why it's always so empty on Saturday nights....
Still, you can call me weird if you want but I really enjoy having lots of space and clean, smoke free air which adds up to a comfortable and conducive environment to catch up with friends.
(As opposed to loud, crowded and smokey clubs/ bars/ lounges)
Overall: Nice restaurant/ bar in Bangsar area that is smoke free! It has nice tasting and reasonably priced drinks and yummy desserts.
