Drinking the Night Away in Penang

Penang has enough nightlife to keep even the most determined hedonist happy and the island’s main downtown destination, George Town, is home to innovative and award-winning bars and clubs. One of the most attractive and interesting things about a night out drinking in George Town is that the town itself is home to so much fascinating architecture from the colonial days of British occupation. As such some of the bars which can be visited are quite stunning buildings which contribute to the fun of an evening out.

One of the most popular of these types of bars to be found in downtown George Town is Mois, which is based in a colonial era white mansion which resembles a miniature version of the USA’s Presidential White House. This bar is popular with both locals and tourists thanks to it covering all kinds of entertainment bases – guest DJs appear each Wednesday, Friday and Saturday to spin tunes for the dancing and clubbing crowd, other nights host live bands from all over the country and beyond and at the entrance there is a small bar dedicated to showing sports so that fans can always catch their team’s match over a few cold beers.

Always not far from your guesthouse or hotel Penang will always have somewhere to offer to grab a cold one or have a cocktail mixed up for you as you watch the sun set over the ocean. One of the other favourite venues to be found in George Town is Soi II Unplugged bar and restaurant, based on the famous Upper Penang Road. This bar is a really chilled out place to kill hours of an evening and offers some great imported bottled beers. Food here is good too with high quality bar snacks to be had for reasonable prices.

Penang is all about being laid back in the evening and there is nowhere cooler in George Town than the new Levo Jazz Bar. Jazz makes for the perfect backdrop to a picturesque sunset and this bar offers all manner of western imported bottled brews to suit all palates. The bar opens at 5pm and stays through until 2am, so having watched the sun go down you can continue knocking back beers and cocktails to your heart’s content.

Some of the best bars in town can be found within the fine accommodation Penang has to offer. One such of these is the famous Farquhar’s Bar which is located within the famous Eastern and Oriental Hotel in central George Town. This bar serves up high quality cocktails in a colonial environment and the building itself is a throwback to the days of British occupation. Don’t forget to check out the bar’s special concoction, the Eastern and Oriental Sling, for a cocktail with a difference.
