Couple of visits in the evening, perfect ambiance, reasonably-priced drinks (including classic cocktails) and a strong mix of new and old music. Always made to feel welcome and lots to look at.

Stopped off here last night for drinks on way back to our hotel. Bar has a nice vibe and drinks are a good price. More evidence that lebuh chulia appears to be the place to got for drinks and food in Georgetown now.

Ordered two carlsberg beers, they were most likely watered out. Tasted really bad. The music was too loud to have a conversation. The bathroom was really gross.

We visited this bar every night we stayed in Georgetown. Filled with eclectic 'junk' over every wall, shelf and surface - this is a bar with brilliant character. Each time you look around you spot something new. The staff truly made this place for us...More
