Hotel drinks, dining and service on a budget
To call Bakita an upmarket Sid’s would be wrong but not too far off. It’s chilled out atmosphere is complemented by good service and a wide array of drink choices. Hotel-standard quality beverages are what you get here as this is probably one of the few outlets in town with a Walk-in Chiller to keep the fluids fresh. Head Bartender Jared should be given a PhD in mixology for his unique creations. Expect your German beer to be poured the right way (with froth) by all bar staff. The music is probably one notch down in terms of volume yet still loud enough to create that party vibe at the bar. If you prefer a more laidback setting with less music, you can chill outside under shaded trees and watch a match with a buddy. Not wanting to be left behind in the dating market, the 2nd floor of Bakita is a swanky cocktail bar with lush furniture and chic appeal.

Clientele Young professionals and people who appreciate humble, good service.

Drinks Prepared to be spoilt for choices. On tap there are (among others) Leffe Blond/Brune, Erdinger Weissbier Dark and Connor’s. German beers include Warsteiner, Fraziskaner Weissbier (our fav), Konig Ludwig, Erdinger and Beck’s. Others: Hoegaarden, Asahi, Savanna Dry Premium Cider, Foster’s, VB. Price range is about RM26-36 per pint and RM45-60 for 2 pints. Party drinks include Bakita Zing/Lemon & Lime Bitter, Asian Sun, Factory Grass, My Mama and Fire Traffic Light (Absinthe’s Flaming Lamborghini). We tried the tropical X-Ray (X-Rated vodka, onions, Japanese Oba leafs) which is a great aperitif, the shake-like Rosey Mexican (tequila rose, vodka, tea, longan) with chips on top and the Bakita Secret jello-shot. All were marvelous. From RM23+ onwards.
