It’s a two-in-one at Fatty Boom Boom: Firstly, they’re a cocktail bar serving quirkily named drinks (like The Brave & The Bold and Creamy Cat) fused with local ingredients; secondly, it’s a show lounge featuring stand-up comedy, music and dancing on Friday and Saturday nights. The lineup alternates every week; check their Facebook page to see who’s performing. We hear Madam Joanne Kam Po Po is a regular. Also, the performers do get interactive during shows, and apparently will take them off stage and into the crowd. So be a good sport.

Asian ingredients take centre stage in the drinks menu, including chrysanthemum tea, sea coconut and kaya, to name a few. The menu is split into four sections. Go Home or Go Hoe is their bubble tea cocktail series; yes, it’s served like bubble tea complete with a plastic-sealed cup and straw. There are also shots with bold names like ‘Kentucky Bondage’ that go for RM20, along with a selection of classic cocktails with a twist.

The Signature Teapots are perfect for groups as they each serves four; try the famous Boom Boom Tea – a combination of gin, vodka, campari, homemade ginger flower syrup, chrysanthemum tea and sea coconut. There’s no food served at Fatty Boom Boom at the moment, but we hear bar snacks will be introduced soon. We suggest having a meal at S.Wine before heading upstairs for the show.

To get there, head towards the back of S.Wine in Tropicana City Mall and go up the flight of stairs. You can’t miss the ping pong table in the middle of the room; it serves dual roles as a communal table for bigger groups, or as an actual ping pong table where you can play a game or two. If you’re looking for privacy, there’s a little corridor at the back with seats (also the smoking area) that’s tucked away from the crowd.
