THE A-LIST 2018 X SPEAKEASY BARS
EMBARK ON A HUNT FOR SOME OF THE MOST ELUSIVE SPEAKEASY BARS IN TOWN WITH A-LISTERS KYLE E, ERNEST LOH AND CURWEN CHAI
THREE X CO
Made out of brotherhood, craftsmanship and mixology, Three X Co is the latest edition in the speakeasy scene within the region where its concept is inspired by blending oriental cultures into the prohibition-styled “speakeasy” bars trending across the world today.
The idea started when three friends once dreamed about opening a bar of their own. After many years later with each having successful careers on their own, they came together to make their dream a reality. Wong Wai Hung, Managing Director cum Founder of Image Genius Sdn Bhd, co-owned with friends Eugene Yeoh and Daniel Gunawan, began putting things in motion and was introduced to Mixologist Consultant David Hans, Asia’s first World Champion of the Giffard West Cup 2017 Competition, making him partner and Hans’ first signature bar.
Carefully curated furnitures and lightings are placed within stylish decors of dark blue shades scattered across the surroundings of the bar that gives Three X Co a sense of class and warmth for patrons visiting the bar. The well-stocked bar not only serves unique crafted spirits sought from all over the world but also a specially curated cocktail menu designed by Hans himself.
Horror doesn’t get enough representation when it comes to the service industry (Certainly an odd thing to pay attention to), you can only imagine the surprise and excitement when people start to discover that a horror-themed bar is tucked comfortably in the center of one of the most happening cities in the world.
Dramatic, atmospheric and undeniably eerie, the ambience of the place is creepy enough with red mood lighting, but add in a few popping balloons and fake limbs here and there, you have the perfect blend of fun and frightening. With its creative attempting in fusing oriental and Malaysian ingredients, The Deceased’s cocktails are chillingly satisfying, crafted by mixologist Steven Wan.
Daring and creative, the team behind The Deceased is extremely committed to their craft. Whether is its shadowy staircase lit by bulbs wrapped in Taoist talismans, or its devotion in crafting a menu of unique offerings that evoke the theme it’s so committed to, The Deceased is destined to be a bar to be remembered.
Welcome into the world where east and west collides in a grandeur and seductive pleasure. Located in the heart of the city centre, tucked ingeniously amongst the buildings in Jalan Raja Chulan, getting to her is an ecstatic experience.
Behind the wooden door entrance, you are invited to a timeless archetypal English décor lounge, spaced perfectly with large Cheshire couches, wooded tables and statues where you experience the selections of liquor and beers from the bar. The granite bar top, warmed by the lighting and brilliant pattern sets a mystical atmosphere.
Next room offers an air of grandeur with sense of classic orient, grit and classic Hong Kong glamour. You will be greeted with over two-hundreds dazzling birdcages chandelier, an elegant 18 - feet high ceiling rock bar with medicine cabinet backdrop décor, cozy centerpiece lounge sofa. Dramatic draped stage with antique window panels from the 1950s Canto era as backdrop coupled with classy neon signage at the side gives an eclectic anticipation towards the shows that are ranged from live bands, acoustic acts, comic show and varieties of live performances.
