This lesser known bar in Chinatown is one of its kind. By that, we mean it sports gorgeous vintage vibes, delicious drinks and a no-profit system. The bar opens only by reservation in advance, and everyone who works there do so voluntarily so that all proceeds can be contributed to operational costs as well as a fund to help emerging artist friends. Meant to be a happy place to gather (Shuang Xi translates to double happiness in Mandarin), this is just the spot to take your favourite friends on a good night out. What's more, the prices are easy on the pocket! Cocktails begin from RM24 for a single shot, RM32 for a double and so on, allowing patrons to pay for their drink's worth. Try the Best Before, a summery concoction of Malibu rum and pineapple juice. Or let the other intriguing names surprise you, be it the Familiar Stranger or the Mood Swing. Alternatively, kick back with a bottle of Tsingtao beer (RM12) befitting of the bar's old-world charms.
Avg price per person: RM30
