Fashion TV’s F Vodka arrives

At Bedroom Club in Pavilion KL last Thursday, a new vodka hit our shores, created by Michel Adam, founder of Fashion TV: The “Elixir of fashion”, F. Vodka.

Taken neat, it’s kinda sweet n a lil rough. Reasonably ok for shots.

But then again, some people probably consider themselves too cool for neat vodka.

Mmm mmh.... Fresh meattt

Its quadrupled-distilled in Poland from fine Polish wheat & rye, with water from artesian wells. The vodka (and the eagle wings logo) is based on a traditional recipe served to the White Eagle Legion in the American War of Independence, 1783.

Must have been an interesting war.

RRP is between $168 and $200 retail, above $300 in outlets. However, it’s exclusive to Bedroom for the next two months. It’s brought in by TWE.

More options in d market, better for consumers

The F Vodka party started a lil slow, but was soon heaving. Cool funk house tunes, none of ’em cheesy electro shite. And before i realized it or aimed for it, i was pretty gone. Must have been the shots. Thanks Vince.

Dont remember much bout gettin home! I guess that’s what happens when u forget to eat.

Service with a smile

That’s three Thursday nights in a row that i been bent, rather than Fri/Sat.

What’s goin on??

Refreshing hits

Last Thu was the F party, Thursday before that by buddy Paulie wuz in town, and we started at 6pm @ Overtime in Kota Damansara. Decent happy hours – about $35 for two pints of Starker unfiltered beer before 7pm.

Bring it, dont stop

Then shifted butts two minutes away to Movida, for an even more amazing deal. $36 nett for your first Kilkenny/Guinness, then a buck each for the next two! So 38 bucks for three. And the rounds kept comin!

So bengkok there. Pushed on to Frendscino in Damansara Perdana, where on Thursday, two pints of Erdinger are $40 nett.

Tall ones

Followed by Es Para Ti for some Jack Daniels. And Jagerbombs (yuck), then Tom Dick & Harry’s for Franziskaner ales. A nice tour over five outlets in one evening. Number of drinks: Uncountable.

Me n Paulie had a major brown-out.

The previous Thursday i randomly strolled into 42East in TTDI, unsure what was up – some Jose Cuervo cocktail promotion. I ended up havin three pints of weissbier, six cocktails, and six tequila shots, including the 1800. Yummy!

Some really interesting tequila cocktails were featured by the distributor Fortier via Remy Cointreau. Will talk about them later.

There’s actually a Jose Cuervo margharita ‘Slurpee’ machine behind d bar. I’ll be featuring 42East soon.

Thursday became the new Friday. Hopefully not dis week.


Brain damage: 8/10


Great football drinks

World Cup 2010 South Africa is here – one month of consistent happy hours and late-nights.

There goes gym.

Bars will be the main financial beneficiaries of d tournament. Its a great windfall for them. Competition is stiff. Good.

Btw, the offical World Cup tune n video below. Called Waving Flags. Performed by K’naan, some African dude. Enjoy.

Anyway, some real sweet deals for drinkers goin on, especially at the newer establishments. Mostly for beers of course. Thank God for competition. (Note: All prices i post is always the nett price.)

Many outlets have been given exemption by city hall for one month to open till 5am. Kitchens are also open late for snacks n shit.

Probably the best u’ll ever get is at Movida (Sunway Giza, Kota D’sara, PJ). They got one-for-one deals from NOON till 10pm! And then again from 2am to 5am. Daily.

Here it is –

Drink dat, u alcos!

Paulaner & Kilkenny at $36.80 nett for two pints ($18.40 each) is pretty good. And $33.35 for two Guinnesses ($16.70 each). I doubt it can be matched at the moment. Its got a super-sized screen inside. All HD of course. Will most def checkitout.

Close by, The Beer Factory (6141-6450) (which will be featured soon) has a big-ass screen n beer deals too –



Erdinger, Stella, Hoegaarden, Franziskaner at $46 for two pints, until midnight. Definitely whoops The Library’s fat ass. ($36 for a Hoegaarden is insane.) Carlsberg is $34.50/pitcher at the Factory.

Over in TTDI, there’s good action too.

At PUBLIC (7729-9650) in TTDI Plaza, u can get a 2-liter special hand-blown Winner’s Trophy glass from Germany filled with Tiger for $180. Or a limited edition pint glass (5 designs) with Tiger for $25 net. Am sure there’re other deals too.

Deutsches Gasthaus on Lrg Rahim Kajai 14 has $25 nett for a pint of Hoegaarden, Franziskaner, Stella of Leffe. All nite. No fat screens as far as i know.

At Sid’s, its $19.55 for a pint of Guinness all nite. Also for Tiger. Its $10 nett i think. From noon. Full HD.

S’Mores at The Sphere in Bangsar South has a variety of bottled beers and get this – TWO pints of Guinness for 20 bucks net, from 5pm-7pm daily! The most awesomest. Other times, its $50 net for three pints. Also, for bottles – $50 for 3 Hoegaarden, and $75 for any three of these – Erdinger, Ludwig, Franziskaner, Erdinger or Weihenstephan. I dont think there’s a large screen tho.

Frontera (7958-8515) @ Jaya One has a variety of deals.

5pm till closing:

Tiger mug @ $10 nett
Tiger jug @ $33 nett
Guinness (2 Pints) @ $33 nett ($16.50/pint)

Fridays (5pm-8pm):
Tiger Crystal Beer @ $1 nett per btl (1st btl at $28)

Bubbles has 3 pitchers of Tiger for $90 net. Guinness & Kilkenny is $18 for a pint and $50 for 3. Paulaner is $23 net.

Still, overall, Movida is recommended, coming out tops by far in terms of variety and hours.

Lower prices are always welcomed, coz thats higher consumption. Am sure there’re other promos dat am gonna come across – will update in d comments section.

Feel free to add-on any good promos, until July 11. Appreciate the feedback if u go to any of the above joints.

Goddam i wish it was World Cup all year!


Brain damage: Should be pretty dam extensive


Cheaper stout

D price of Guinness draft has been dropping steadily since it was introduced. There were quite a few promos before St Paddy’s Fest. Fear not, u can still get some deals at these four outlets, among others.


A lot more common now

Btw Connor’s Irish Stout has a promo at Deutsche Haus in TTDI (and i think DP) – $34.50 for two pints all day, everyday. = $17.25 NETT a pint. And there’s kick-ass pork knuckle!

Fitou by the chillout lake in Desa Park City has d best afternoon happy hours gig as all drafts (incl Guinness) at $50 for three pints, which is $16.66 NETT each. 12pm-5pm including weekends. Niice.

Sid’s (all outlets) Guinness is $19.55 NETT all night for April.

PUBLIC in TTDI Plaza has d sweetest deal coz its permanent – $18.40 NETT – all day, everyday, all year!

But d best price for a pint at d mo is at Tex-Mex specialist Frontera in Jaya One – only 15 bucks NETT from 10pm until closing DAILY. When other’s happy hours have ended, Frontera’s is just beginning! Until May 5th. (A pitcher of Tiger is $30 NETT.) Real tequilas & margaritas too. And killa chili cheese burger.

Still, d prices could go lower. Its only beer after all. Look forward to when its closer to ten bucks than 20. Am sure we’ll all drink a lot more!


If u like Guinness…

Dark magnet

…u’d luuv Spaghetti Grill (2287-2220). They serve it ice-cold, like Chilis, but without the complimentary ‘people-haters’ managers. It’s located at Megamall, facing The Gardens.

And the price is ridiculous – $11.95++ or $13.75 nett a pint. Cool thing is, happy hours is all day, all nite! And it aint just for Guinness – other beers & liquor too. You can get a Scotch whisky (Grouse) for 7 bucks.

Bites called 3D

U know when you’re halfway or nearing the end of your pint of beer/Guinness, and it starts to taste crap coz of the rise in temperature? Dat really sucks, and seriously affects the taste of the drink, making u less likely to order another. This problem dont exist at Spaghetti Grill, cos the thick-glass mugs are stored in the freezer until needed.

It remains real cold till d last drop! No shit.

Now that what i call a COLD ONE

Now that what i call a COLD ONE

Its got a full bar

The outlet is owned by the same company that owns Chilis, hence the similar set-up. But the manager here, Ashok, is a nice guy. He could teach Chili’s managers a thing or two, or a thousand.
