    I come here often to watch the sunset over the stunning buildings here in beautiful George Town.

    The staff is always friendly, and there is always an interesting mix of locals - both native Penangites and long stay travelers - and tourists.

    It’s a must visit if you want to enjoy a few drinks, some conversation and meet interesting people.

    We were there for a family holiday. Went to The Bank for a drink. The live band plays and sings all the popular songs. The DJ was awesome, playing all the upbeat music to get yu into the mood to party.

    The crowd was very well behaved and the staff were very friendly. We had a wonderful evening/night to finis off the day tour.

    This is a cozy, eclectic bar, speakeasy-like (behind a non descriptive metal panel door) located in the Hin Bus Depot. It’s great find, with chill music, and the BEST original cocktails at an amazing price (weekdays 2 for RM 50 promotion). The creative mixologist/bartender Kelvin/Calvin helps customers find their ideal drink. He has great instincts. Most of cocktails are his creation and they are fantastic using local flavours like longan, cinnamon, chai spice, passion fruit, calamansi, and interesting liqueurs like frangelico, aperol, sake, and jagermeister. Love this place. Will be back.

    Great location on Chulia, large outdoor street side patio.

    This place would clearly be a fun spot to hang out in the evenings with live music, plenty of booze, and tapas.

    But we came for an early dinner after sightseeing and not the greatest experience. Food was so-so and fairly priced. Upon entering the staff told us their happy hour was buy 2 cocktails, get 1 free. We all ordered 2 cocktails and when we asked to order our 3rd for free, we were told that our drinks were not considered cocktails. WHAT???

    Our server was awful. We think it was his first time serving, period. Did not understand any of our questions, requests, missed on some of our orders, and sadly became the butt of our jokes as an SNL skit character.

    Seriously, for an establishment this size and in its location, they need to do a better job training their serving staff. Seriously. Awful.

    The Lobby Lounge, as the name suggests, is tucked away in the Lobby of the Evergreen Laurel Hotel. It is open from 4pm to 1am daily and has the local band playing from 9pm 6 days a week.

    Pricing is reasonable and the waitress will mix any cocktail or drink request to perfection. Beware the Evergreen Special, it is so good and very addictive.
