Where everybody knows your name….
Like the TV show, Cheers, tucked away in the recesses of Jalan Batai’s double block of neighbourhood shophouses is something of a local watering hole. Neither trendy, nor try-hard, this reliable boozer attracts an older (30+) crowd of professionals, locals and expatriates who are never with an empty glass in hand. For the area, the beer is sensitive to the sad state of today’s wallet and the food is budget-conscious too. If a decent drink with good food and an easy-going crowd of regulars in a relaxed setting puts a spark in your smile then this is your kind of magic.
