Time Out Kuala Lumpur - - Specialist bars -

First-timers at MAZE may feel like they’ve stepped into a Hollywood set that has all the stereo­typ­i­cal el­e­ments of a pre-com­mu­nist era Rus­sian-Euro­pean tea-room: long red drapes, suede so­fas and chairs, chan­de­liers, or­nate teapots and glass tables all work to­gether to cre­ate a sur­real en­vi­ron­ment. If you’re in any doubt that you’ve stepped into a gin par­lour, one look at the bar and its ever- ex­pand­ing gin list will put you at ease: there are over 200 la­bels of im­ported craft gins that in­clude hard-to-come-by la­bels like Buss 509, Hernö, Ki No Bi Ky­oto Dry Gin, Able­forth’s Bath­tub Gin and St Ge­orge’s. With so many la­bels at his dis­posal, the in-house mixol­o­gist is able to whip up sev­eral unique spe­cialty gin-based cock­tails such as The Re­viver, the Love Po­tion and red and white gin-based san­grias.

What sets this joint apart from the other gin bars is its ‘gin-sum’ cart (RM38): a push cart loaded with more than a dozen gar­nishes in­clud­ing ly­chee, wa­ter­melon and black­berry that you can add to your G&T.
