Base Camp

This rooftop cafe bar is located on the 2nd floor of The Row KL, within the urban jungle of KL. It has an open-air concept with camping tarps and foldable camping chairs that give it a camping vibe. If you are worried about the outdoor heat, you don’t have to because there are a couple of fans and an occasional breeze to cool you down.

Then on the wall, you can see camping gear and cameras on display. Not only is this camping-themed cafe 🚫🐷pork-free (alcohol is served) but, it is also 🐶🐱pet-friendly. So if you have always wanted to bring your pet with you on a camping trip but are unable to, then this is the place for you! You can now spend time “camping” with your furry friend at Base Camp. The atmosphere here is casual, and the cafe is clean despite being a pet-friendly cafe.

Keopi & Sul. is a small Korean cafe bistro with less than 20 tables. So you are advised to come earlier to secure a place for lunch! Keopi (커피) means ☕coffee, and Sul (술) means 🍶liquor and from that, you can deduce that this camping-themed cafe mainly focuses on these beverages. There are also lots of 🤳Instagrammable drinks like the Butterfly Cotton Candy, Lychee Rose Romance and Magic Yuzu.

Here is another outdoor cafe in Penang with a camping theme. Upon stepping your foot onto this outdoor cafe, you’ll see fake grass underneath. Then, as you look up, you’ll find white tents lined neatly in a row. In the tent is an air-cond unit and you can sit and relax with the soft pillows.

However, you can book the tent only with a minimum spend of RM150. On top of that, you are only allowed to spend a maximum of 90 minutes in the tent so that other customers can also enjoy this unique camping experience (well, more like glamping actually).

Besides the outdoor seating, Fly Me To also has indoor seating with glass windows which is equally interesting because you can see Penang’s skyline, including KOMTAR. There is no denying that every corner of this camping-themed cafe is Instagrammable. However, this cafe is not mobile-friendly because after taking the lift, you’ll still have to climb 2 more flights of stairs to reach your destination.

Just because you don’t see yourself whipping out your tent or sleeping bag from the closet, that doesn't mean you can't enjoy the camping experience at these cafes. While it is true that not everyone caters to these themes, these ⛺camping-themed cafes serve as a contrast in an otherwise monotony-ridden coffee culture we have today. So if you want to get away from the same old, why not try camping-themed cafes?
