Avoid this place at all costs. Friends were bashed there by their security upon leaving the club. They were extremely lucky not to end up with fractured skulls. Keep away

Myself and my friends had drinks there recently and as we left we were attacked viciously by local thugs. We were lucky to avoid serious injury even though we suffered thumps and kicks to our bodies and heads. This place should be avoided at all costs.

Do not go. the owner and the people running it enforce thuggish behaviour, beating up customers senselessly while under drug/alcohol influence.

I've been there on three separate trips, first two i witnessed them beating & chasing people down the streets. Didn't think much of it then but was not so lucky the third time i went there. My friends and I got threatened, kicked out & punched.

This bar turns up super hard. Loads of people gather here past a certain time that sometimes it runs out of place to move around. But past that its a great experience here. Tip if u cant hold your liquor, ask the bartender to make it mild. They have one setting most times, which is ' strong liquor"

The club plays great music and serves pretty much cheap and good alcohol. The place was full of youngsters partying in a full mood. The club offers good drinks but no food after 10. We stayed here 4 in the morning and had to leave because of all the smoke in the club. It’s a pretty small place and non smokers can feel like they’re stuck in a chimney.
No bouncers or security overall but the crowd was decent.

It was a nice place to have fun, enjoying and relaxing with friends but sometimes it was too small inside

Yawn yawn yawn!!!... This bar is slower than a wet week.. Terrible 80s music that I never understand why is stil a "thing"... ((the 80s sucked FYI))

Annnnywho.... Got a drink... Said would have to wait 10 minutes for change... That was OK.... 10 minutes came and went.... No change... So i asked.... "please wait 10 more minutes!".

That's OK... ((I'm a super chilled person as a rule - for context))

Ten minutes later......

No change... Thing is I gave 50 myr for a user and a beer... Excuse was no change... But there was at least 10 other people buying drinks...

" sorry sir, early! Wait ten more mins, no change"

It was 1230am.... Whens an appropriate time to get my change 0345? in two days? Two months?

Ten minutes later.............

Finally got my change... From the disgruntled boss....

All to the sound track faded American reganomics dreams as the sun sets on a crumbling empire of the self.

Yeah nah.... Terrible bar.... Don't bother......

I went to this bar a few times and it was plesant. My friends and I enjoyed the live music and had some good drinks. There is a pool table to play on as you walk in. One night I did meet a foreigner from the Middle East who was beat up around 4am. The man told me he was a student studying in KL and went to Langkawi for vacation. I walked passed him while I went to get food and he said the locals ripped apart his shirt because they wanted to steal his iPhone.

I didn't believe the reviews at first because I've lived in Asia for 2 years and have never seen something like this before but I guess it is true that some of the locals beat up foreigners. Although I don't know the other side of the story, it is strange that so many people say the same thing as what I have witnessed.

I would say if you are on vacation its safe to come here but leave around 2am because thats when I've heard lots of stories.

Thanks and best of luck
