This might either scare or excite you. If you are a thrill-seeker, then meet The Deceased Bar, a speakeasy bar in Kuala Lumpur which is inspired by the darker side of life…think ‘death,’ ‘superstition,’ ‘sorcery.’ Certainly not for the faint-hearted, dining in the otherworld is almost possible at this speakeasy bar cum restaurant located in Chinatown. Sample the quirky, spooky fare such as The Curse of Ghost Chilli, The Last Meal and I Spit On Your Grave, and sip on cocktails like Janin (featuring a ghastly-looking baby offering a vodka concoction) and Ilmu Hitam (served with a heart and a brain).
With amazing cocktails, you’ll definitely get to taste the spooky drama while you’re here, with masks, incense sticks, half Barbie bodies, wooden ancient slippers, a popping balloon all making their way to the overall look and feel of the cocktails. Interestingly, The Deceased used to be an old Chinese drugstore. The bar itself is backed with a wall of vintage Chinese herbal medicine doctors’ apothecary cabinets, which showcase the collection of spirit while resembling its historic past. Definitely more suitable for older teens and adults, this creepy bar and restaurant above a backpackers hostel requires reservations via Facebook as walk-ins are not possible. And You need a password to get in. Good luck!
What: Certainly not for the faint-hearted, welcome to the Deceased Bar, a speakeasy bar in Kuala Lumpur which is inspired by the darker side of life.
When: Sundays to Thursdays from 6pm to 10pm; Fridays and Saturdays from 6pm to 11pm
