The Venue at Pavilion is fast becoming, well, THE venue for fans of live performances.
The music kicks in at 9:30pm nearly nightly; in recent weeks, the likes of Junji Delfino, Melissa Indot and the AZ Samad Trio have been among the attractions here.
For now, a very limited snacks menu is available. But stop scoffing at the chicken wings; they're pretty much perfect _ crispy outside, succulent within and flavorful throughout.
Vegetarian spring rolls, heavy on juiciness, light on greasiness.
Martinis play a major role here: pop the Cherry (vodka, frangelico, maraschino).
Valencia (gin, dry sack, orange). Cocktails cost slightly under RM30.
Hot chocolate, featuring Comprital cocoa with steamed milk.
Can't resist the affogato, made with Haagen-Dazs ice cream.
The Venue seems to be smoke-free. Its kitchen opens by seven, when the place is still peaceful, with soothing melodies to keep the mood relaxed.
