Looking for a hidden bar to quietly welcome 2020? Then Backdoor Bodega might just be the right speakeasy bar for you. Locating the bar is no easy task too but look for the Backdoor logo as a key hint. Did we mention how much we love the unique cocktails here? Go for the Chrysanthemum Tea for a taste of their one-of-a-kind menu. This is the kind of bar that lets you chill while sipping on your drinks and truly enjoy the company around. Quality over quantity guys.

Since our previous listings include several Chinese dynasty themed bars, we’re not gonna stop here. 1874 is a new bar located at Bukit Mertajam and it is the epitome of retro. Aside from drinking from bowls like back in those days, there’s also a full-fledged area with a retro design that makes a great spot for photo-taking. Live band performances here create an awesome drinking experience. The ambience also makes it suitable for a countdown spot.

When we hang out in a club, aside from the overall ambience and music, sometimes we just wish there’s like a game section for us to play it out with our friends right? And this is actually available in W Pub as there is an entire pool table here for you to kick off a game or two with your friends when you need a break from all those drinks. In addition to that, you can also sit back and relax on luxurious leather seats (that kind that you see on TV while they puff on some cigars, classy).
