eslite spectrum Kuala Lumpur officially opened its doors at The Starhill on 17th December 2022 and stayed open until 1 am in what it dubbed a “Sleepless Saturday” to offer book lovers an extended opportunity to experience the grand opening celebration.
eslite now operates 48 stores in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Suzhou, Tokyo, and Kuala Lumpur. More than just a bookstore, eslite spectrum Kuala Lumpur is a cultural venue that offers diverse, multilingual reading experiences, exclusive stationery from all over the world, unique products that are both cultural and creative, lifestyle trends, art exhibitions, and performances, as well as world-class coffee, all under one roof.
Located on the first floor of The Starhill in Bukit Bintang, eslite spectrum Kuala Lumpur has turned to Italo Calvino’s iconic novel, Invisible Cities, for design inspiration.
The escalator rides up into a tunnel-like entrance, making it a befitting prelude to the eslite adventure that awaits, beginning with artist Benrei Huang’s rabbit sculpture Nini, who stands watch over the entrance to four themed spaces, namely the City of Arches, The Floating City, the City of Rippling Waves, and the City of Eternal Day.
One of the many outstanding features of eslite spectrum Kuala Lumpur is a unique urban literary trail that highlights 17 diverse authors from across the globe.
Also spotlighted are the cities that the authors are associated with; Victor Hugo and Paris; Haruki Murakami and Tokyo; Eileen Chang and Shanghai; Pai Hsien-yung and Taipei and Kuala Lumpur’s own A. Samad Said are just some of the authors featured.
