The for­mer 7ate­nine has been trans­formed into the re­fined Tujo, with Modo chan­de­liers, floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows, and Mid-Cen­tury fur­ni­ture. The kitchen adopts a vi­brant ap­proach to fu­sion cui­sine, serv­ing gutsy dishes such as veni­son rolls, liver ter­rine, grilled seafood, and piz­zas. Look out for a se­lec­tion of ta­ble games from yes­ter­year such as five stones, bot­tle­caps, coun­try game, and the pen­cil race. There’s a hot cock­tail list – sip on rose­mary mar­ti­nis, blue­berry mar­gar­i­tas, and other mis­chievous con­coc­tions like the bour­bon-based Fu­neral For Jack and New Fash­ion­ista (a mix of tequila, wa­ter­melon, and lime). Tujo is per­fect for af­ter-work drinks or that ex­cit­ing first date. As­cott Kuala Lumpur, 9 Jalan Pi­nang, Kuala Lumpur. Tel: 012-210 3055. Strictly an un­der­ground bar – dis­creet and hip – for se­ri­ous drink­ing and canoodling. It prides it­self on its eclec­tic list of cock­tail con­coc­tions, mixed and stirred by two of the city’s most in­no­va­tive bar­tenders. Or­der an elder­flower mar­tini (Tan­queray, elder­flower, white wine) or Jalisco es­presso (Don Julio Re­posado, Kahlua, sugar, es­presso). Packs in just 35. Ming An­nexe Build­ing, 9 Jalan Am­pang, Kuala Lumpur. Here, the bar­tenders know you by name and you’ll en­joy a range of South Amer­i­can-in­spired cock­tails from mar­gar­i­tas, san­grias, Cuba li­bres, and caipir­in­has to mo­ji­tos, pisco sours, and flavoured tequi­las. Snack on ce­viche, grilled sar­dines, cod fish frit­ters, and breaded jalapenos. 1 Jalan Se­ti­a­puspa, Da­mansara Heights. Tel: 03-2095 7437. Find brews from Amer­ica, Nor­way, Den­mark, Eng­land, and In­dia to quench your thirst. Try the sam­pling por­tions of three beers served in tast­ing glasses – a great way to fa­mil­iarise your palate with indie brews in a hip, in­for­mal at­mos­phere.
