Synonymous with live jazz and Champagne brunches, Shook! is cemented in many a Malaysian's early memories of fine dining in KL. But nostalgia alone won't guarantee return customers; as such, the all-day dining restaurant is shaking up its offerings to stay ahead of the curve in today's competitive market. Little has been revealed about the menu, save for the promise of "globally inspired gourmet experiences."

What's certain is this: Shook!'s cooking will be spearheaded by chefs Mo and Rafizan, previously of Enak KL.

Furthermore, Shook! will prioritise private events, hence its two exclusive spaces titled The Living Room and Shook! 118.

Besides Shook!, The Starhill Dining is also breathing life into the following: Luk Yu Tea House, which is inspired by Chinese tea culture; The Alchemy, a gin-centric bar for fans of botanicals; Tarbush Lounge, a specialist of fine Arabic cuisine; and Jogoya, once home to KL's most coveted Japanese buffets.
