8 Jalan Kemuja, Bangsar, KL (03 2283 4698/www.facebook.com/ drincbangsar). Away from the buzz that is Bangsar proper is the slowly gentrifying road of Jalan Kemuja, home to DR.Inc (pronounced ‘drink’), a very cool café where distinctive coffee-based drinks and the creativity of Nala Designs pervades in the décor. For those who want a birthday party with an artsy twist, TH.Inc academy, located upstairs, now hosts birthday bashes perfect for three- to 12-year-olds, with a minimum of six party guests.
For RM150 per child, the party will get a buffet of delicious food catered for by DR.Inc and a unique art-based activity – anything from painting with marbles to bursting paint-filled balloons, all held in a nice open space upstairs above the café. The kids get to bring their masterpieces home after, which is also a nice memory of the party. This is a venue where the parents will actually want to hang out and have a coffee (or something stronger) while the little ones are being entertained and fed – the ideal birthday do! Package price includes an art activity, buffet and a simple cake (on request). Advance booking is required. Mon & Sun, 9am-7pm; Tue-Sat, 9am-1am.
