Hidden along a back alley in Plaza Batai is an inconspicuous white spiral staircase that leads to a mysterious speakeasy

To enter, you need to go through a 'hole in the wall', up the spiral staircase, and dial a passcode on an old school payphone.

The passcode, which can be retrieved on their Instagram, changes every week, so be sure to check before heading there.

As you enter, you'll be greeted with an interior surrounded by brick walls, decked out in vintage mismatched furniture

Perfect for an evening out with friends or a date night, the bar serves an array of small bites and meals, including pizzas, pastas, chicken wings, chicken parmigiana, meatball parmigiana, and Cliff's Philly Cheese Steak, all priced below RM20.

Their specialty cocktails are what many gravitate towards

Some of these include the Sugus, which is Bulldog Gin, Creme De Mure, blended fresh blueberries with a dash of soda, and Macham Macham, which is Kopi O cold brewed, Kahlua, and Captain Morgan, topped with teh tarik foam, among other unique concoctions.

If cocktails aren't your thing, they also offer draught and bottled beers, regular alcoholic drinks, wine, as well as non-alcoholic beverages.

So if you're looking for your next hangout spot, get the passcode and drop by this cool space!
