Hidden behind a block of beat-up lockers on the first floor of a nondescript shophouse in Damansara Kim is this speakeasy bar. The industrial vibe favoured by many bars and cafés in the city is given an interesting twist here – the addition of exposed metal pipes lining the ceiling and jutting out from the beaten-copper bar and walls, an obvious nod to the steampunk aesthetic.
The drinks menu is a mile long with lots of whiskies, rums, gin, vodkas and such. The cocktails here feature inventive use of local and Asian ingredients - they have their own menu for cocktails. Jacked-up is a gin, mustard, jackfruit, Cointreau and honey mix. The best part is, cocktails are very affordably priced.
The food menu, consisting mostly of finger food and bar bites, is just as interesting. Tex-Mex-inspired dishes have been reinterpreted with local ingredients – so expect punchy flavours. We highly recommend the spicy yet addictive mutton varuval quesadillas with mango chutney – a perfect accompaniment to the drinks. Other highlights include their Nasi Goreng Haram with lap cheong (RM23), Tempe Meatballs (RM16) which is vegan, and the interestingly deep fried Potato, Bitter Gourd and Jackfruit Pakora that comes with a mint yoghurt dip (RM15).
