Starhill Gallery is a luxury retail mall located in the Bukit Bintang shopping district of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The mall opened in 1996 as Starhill Shopping Centre.

In 1999, when business was in decline, it was acquired by YTL Corporation.[1] YTL decided to do away with the anchor tenant-based business model and transform Starhill into a luxury brand retail centre.[2] It underwent extensive renovation led by architect David Rockwell and reopened in July 2005 as Starhill Gallery.[2]

The mall is connected to the JW Marriott Kuala Lumpur by a "Time Tunnel".[2] The link bridge also connects to the Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur.
