3) Havana Bar & Grill
Little Havana had long been an anchor point of the whole Changkat experience, one of the first independent bars and clubs in the city from the late ‘90s onwards. It gave the crowd good beers, a place for some live music (occasionally excellent); it was where you went pre-Laundry days for a fix of indie sounds.
International DJs sometimes spin upbeat tracks for a predominantly young crowd but their slew of retro hits every Friday and Saturday night seeks to bring the nostalgic and the wallflowers out on to the floor. Also look out for Kizomba and Salsa every Tuesday.
