Iron River Studio & Cafe @ Sungai Besi

This new 'experimental art gallery,' which aims to champion the work of unheralded local artists, houses a pop-up coffee bar that runs Friday through Sunday. Iron River is a very casual space that's like an Aladdin's cave of knickknacks; come in to chat with founder Kim Seng while sipping iced Laotian coffee & aeropress green tea prepared by Serdang-based Halalao Coffee.

Iron River Studio & Cafe
39-2, Second Floor, Jalan Tasik Utama 6, Medan Niaga Tasik Damai Sungai Besi, Kuala Lumpur.
Coffee bar operates Friday-Sunday, 2pm-9pm. Basic pastries are available.

  1. Just coffee and tea? Literal translation - imagine what we would call one here if located at Sungai Antu. :D

    1. Suituapui: they have a few pastries available for snacks, but no actual hot kitchen ;) haha, i think a Ghost River Cafe would also be quite a cool name :D

  2. Hahaha interesting name and deco! How come didn't order some snacks? :P

    1. CK: heheh, yeah; I think you'd be able to take some nice photos here ... There were some pastries available, but not really the main attraction here ;)

  3. I thought Iron River was cool until I realized it's Sungai Besi hah..hah... We have a place in Terengganu called Bukit Payung and we kids used to refer to it as umbrella hill :D

    1. Phong Hong: haha ya, at first I was puzzled about why they called it Iron River ... Until I looked at the address of the cafe ;) umbrella hill sounds like a good name ... Though I assume it also looks like an umbrella ;)

  4. The interior is like somebody's home, a very artistic home indeed :P

    1. Choi Yen: yeah, it does have a very homey feel, with a lot of books and magazines and other household items :)
