Damansara Heights is another ritzy neighborhood north of Bangsar but more residential. It started out as housing for civil servants and slowly grew to become a thriving and popular place to live in Klang Valley. It is well connected to the city with the two MRT stations on the Kajang line: Pusat Bandar Damansara and Semantan MRT station and the coworking space Common Ground also has a location here. And there are two shopping malls in the area: the bigger and newer Damansara City Mall in the south and Hartamas Shopping Centre in the north.

Plaza Batai is an alternative to the two malls, along with Jalan Batai with many new restaurants and small cafes openings. The 385F Cafe has an extensive western and Asian menu with a metallic interior good for a great brunch and morning work. Damansara is also home to some exquisite restaurants. Notable ones are the French fine dining Chateau Dionne, contemporary European and Asian fusion restaurant Soleil, and Japanese fusion Tokio Restaurant and Bar.
