Ever heard of Ada Coleman? Working for a total of 23 years, she was an exalted head bartender at the Savoy Hotel in London. “Hanky Panky” is a cocktail of her own invention, and is hence held as one of the speciality cocktails in Coley Cocktail Bar. Armed with experience and training, the bartenders promise to bring only the best potions to the table. They have one simple aim: to give their patron’s night a fun spin.

The Social, whilst first beginning in Bangsar, has vastly expanded its area of influence into other places in Klang Valley – Empire Shopping Gallery, Desa ParkCity, Publika, and TREC. Past twilight, many locals in Bangsar will tell you that this establishment is amongst their trusty late-night social spots. This place is praised for many things – their cold draft beer, cocktails, food, music, service, and even cleanliness!

It’s exactly the kind of sports bar that you might imagine off the top of your mind – the ones with screens broadcasting sports channels atop the bar, along with designated areas for patrons to enjoy their snooker tables and dart boards. It’s a rather well-known place for those who enjoy watching football and the UFC on screen whilst swirling a cocktail in hand.

And how can we not mention WIP? Being one of the most well-known restaurants as well as priding in their intense cocktails, it is of no surprise that this place has gained a large following over the years.

Are you ready to sample their Dragon’s Breath in a dimly lit night fogged with mystery? Anno Domini Bar (also known as AD Bar) is aptly named for the theme of which they thrive in. With the purpose of giving patrons a throwback to somewhere around the 15th century, this bar’s tavern-like interior design is complimented by the design of the cups of which hold their uniquely named cocktails.

I’m still waiting for the day to reply to “where do you want to eat?” with “Knowhere”. This restaurant and bar has received raved reviews online, with many singing commendations in writing for both their food and their cocktails. Some would go as far as to say that Knowhere attracts the right kinda crowd. This gives opportunities for business networking to be done. Of course, given the fact that such a thing can be said for Knowhere, it goes without saying that their services and ambiance beats many of its competitors!

8. Mercat Barcelona Gastrobar

by @ mercatgastrobar (Instagram)

Mercat is as much known for its Spanish tapas as it is known for its gin and tonic. The more the merrier, as with larger groups of friends, you can try a little of everything that they have to offer there! Any you gin and tonic connoisseur, this place is also a must try (their Spanish Siderit and Seagram’s Gin are especially good)! Wine-tasting is also something that is held regularly here with a fair price.
