Bakita @ Berangan


Aren't there enough watering holes already around Changkat Bukit Bintang? Absolutely, but it's still nice to see a new outlet here with sparkling potential.


Bakita takes over the location of the late, lamented La Terrasse on Jalan Berangan, becoming the latest neighbor of Bar Italia and Albion.


It's a breezy, casual space, with welcoming service that put us instantly at ease.


Food will be served starting next month, but for now, there's beer aplenty, including Tetley's & Leffe Blonde. Seemed like popular choices for World Cup watchers here.


Cocktails are available too: Long Island Iced Tea & White Russian.


Bombay Sapphire & Tequila.






Bakita,
Jalan Berangan, Kuala Lumpur.

    lemongrass: ya, it's a different look compared to changkat's other outlets. i'm hoping more restaurants will open at jln berangan soon, to ease the crowdedness at changkat's main street :D

  6. "Our Bar"? That's rather nice, actually, even if you're joking. Kinda like Cheers, where everyone knows your name? :)

  9. Tng: ya, but u know what, earlier this year, they were supposed to open shortly after Chinese new year! But I guess logistical problems delayed it. I wish they didn't specialize in beer though, since I'm not a fan of that :D

  13. leo: yep, but too bad there's no air-conditioning downstairs (only large fans), so the best time to visit is on cool nights :D
