Neo-Victorian style bar-restaurant for gentle debauchery….
If it’s a quiet place you want but one that’s not far away from the action, then JUICE recommends Red Victorian. Perhaps inspired by the B+B of the same name in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury area, The Red Victorian KL is located in a cul-de-sac next door to Havana, and is decorated in a neo-Victorian style with gilded picture frames and mounted animal heads set against flock wallpaper. Armchairs and low tables lit by chandeliers and lamps provide intimate areas for wining and dining and beers too, and there’s a patio area outside.
