A girl in Changkat

The following post is written by Marta, a reader from Portugal who lives in KL:

I am Marta from Portugal. I have been living in Kuala Lumpur for around three months now, planning to stay a few more!
When I decided to come to Malaysia I believed that it would be a good opportunity to get a “detox”. I mean, no alcoholic drinks for a while… or at least only on rare occasions. The idea that I had was that the drinks here would be expensive (yes that’s true!!) and that being a Muslim-majority country, it would not be common to drink around here (that is not very true!).
Anyway, I ended up living around Bukit Bintang, I guess that if you have been in Kuala Lumpur you are familiar with the area; it is not more than a really busy area with a lot of bars (mainly western style). At first I was not going out much but due to platforms like VibeHero I started discovering the best bars around the area!
Wednesday is “ladies night” around the area, translated as freeflow of cocktails for all the girls. So far so good, it is definitely a good break in the middle of a working week. I usually hit the bars with my girlfriends for some cocktails and dancing.
I would say that frequent (or even not so frequent) in Changkat know about Wednesdays, especially 21’s ladies night that seem to be pretty famous. But you know what? One thing that few people seem to know is that in Changkat, being a girl will get you free drinks EVERY single day. Yes, even on weekends!!

I will share my favorite’s list with you:
Temptations:  free EVERYDAY
In here you can get the house cocktail (different every day and usually pretty acceptable in terms of taste) as many times as you can. The environment is good as you can sit outside and chat with your friends or hit the dance floor if you’re in a dancing mood. They are the only bar that also gives you the pleasure of enjoying free drinks Fridays and Saturdays as well, with the only restraint that the offer ends at 11.


Elixir: Say Beer!!
From Tuesday till Thursday you can not only get into Elixir for free but also get a voucher with 4 free drinks.  To get this voucher you only need to give your contact information (I would advise you to ask and  put your name on the list so you don’t have to fulfill a new contact form every time you go there) and you can choose rum, vodka, gin or BEER, four times!! It is the only bar that offers beer so it is definitely one of my l favorites. The only negative point with this bar is that it does not have an outside area and inside the music is always loud (really, really loud). It is the place to go if you feel like dancing!!
Why not: My new fetish
This bar opened not even a few weeks ago and it’s already one of my favorites. So far I have not figured out how the offer works, if it is a daily or just a launching promotion  but the truth is that they offer the best free cocktails in Changkat and you can also choose wine(red wine from Chile). I am more of a wine/beer kinda  gal so this offer fits me like a glove. The environment is super cool and the staff are really nice. Top rate for this one!!
21: The classic
I would say that 21 has the original ladies night. Wednesdays seem to be the busiest nights in this bar. Girls can choose between four different types of cocktails (vodka or gin, melon or cranberry flavors among others). Quantity is up to you but my personal experience tells me you should try not to go over four cocktails in the same night and remember don’t mix different flavors!! (Being a weekday I can tell you that I learned my lesson!!).
With so many offers, it gets hard to choose and even guys needn’t worry! Some bars are already doing “Guy’s Thursday” –  that does not necessarily mean free drinks (yet!!) but it’s a 50% discount.


Guinness guzzlers, chew on this!

Happening right now in Bangsar South at S’Mores is the deal of the month!

Only $12 NETT for an ice cold Guinness Draft, all day, all nite. Goin on for the entire month of March.


And over at Jarrod & Rawlins (D’sara Heights), today (Thu) sees a St Patrick’s party from 6pm, with free/cheap Guinness, foodstuff, stand-up comedy & more.

'Perfect pint'?? Isn't that extinct? Very misleading term, GAB. It's not "responsible".

Go delve into the darkness of Guinness. Try and survive.


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


Party month’s here

Yup, the final month of partying for Party Season ’09. With so many three-day weekends dis month (FOUR if ur from Selangor), it’s gonna be unreal.

Some inexpensive booze always helps provoke the parties. Sid’s Pubs has a promo all month – happy hours from opening (11am!) all the way till closing at Sid’s Bangsar South & Sid’s Kenny Hills.

Dats how many barrels we raped at Sid's TTDI on Arthur's Day

Dats how many kegs of Guinness we raped at Sid's TTDI on Arthur's Day

At Sid’s TTDI, its happy hours until closing specifically for Tiger & Guinness, also all-month. Niice.

Get pissed yall.
