Time Out Kuala Lumpur - - Gig venues -

This two-storey pi­ano bar was the brain child of Ed Soo, co-owner of Bangkung Row Restau­rants. Want­ing to in­ject mu­si­cal el­e­ments into his new din­ing ven­ture, Ed brought in Malaysian ac­tor and mu­si­cian Sean Ghazi to be the artis­tic direc­tor, over­see­ing the mu­sic pro­gram­ming here. Sev­eral big names have graced the stage such as Ning Baizura, Ja­clyn Vic­tor, Adibah Noor and even Sean Ghazi him­self; so the range of gen­res you’ll find here is ex­ten­sive – from jazz and soul to clas­si­cal mu­sic and old-school Malay hits. A guest per­former comes in ev­ery Fri­day and Satur­day so you can ex­pect names like Eve­lyn Feroza, Melissa In­dot, Elvira Arul and more to make an ap­pear­ance.

Much like the mu­si­cal of­fer­ings here, the menu at the 60-seater restau­rant down­stairs boasts a good mix of lo­cal and Euro­pean dishes as well as a de­cent se­lec­tion of wines. When you dine here, know that you’ll be do­ing so among a dis­cern­ing crowd that en­joys good food and good mu­sic.
