Penang's best bars with a view
The best places in town to drink in the scenery
Penang's best bars and pubs
Located on the second floor, this restaurant by day and bar with live music by night gives an overall view of the party street in Auto-City. Decorated with red lamps suspended from the ceiling and wood interior, it has a cosy but chic ambience as well. Happy hour runs all night long here and beers start at RM12.
Well, you’re on an island so needless to say, the mellow, swinging-in-a-hammock-by-the-beach vibe pervades most bars. Take the bohemian inspired The Canteen at ChinaHouse. Be it a casual round of drinks with friends, an open-mic comedy evening or head-bopping to live bands (on weekends), you can have it as you wish within this eclectically designed colonial shop house. Go early to grab some comfy, mismatched seats and if it gets too crowded later in the evening, you can move on to the open-air courtyard without missing a beat. The selection of margaritas and mojitos are a must try or you could raid the Vine & Single room for some exclusive bottles of vino imported by Frenchman Sebastien.
