Golden Shower by ChinChin is the most hype bar at the moment in Penang. For One simple reason, because everything is nearly in pink. It is a bar that near every instagrammer is hitting on cause there locations are pretty.
Their grand entrance turns out to be a luxury toilet concept, which mark this the first location for shots. Upon walking through the toilet door, you are greeted with a dim room that is artistically painted like street walks in Melbourne, with Golden shower neon light above. After walking into the second door, that is where you are are transported to anther dimension of minimalist in pink.
Golden Shower by ChinChin is the bar that every one is talk of the town at the moment. A bar that sits right in the middle that is so busy with crowd.
Drinks menu for your reference and I think snacks menu which I forgot to took is slightly overprice.
Tried 2 of the cocktails. King Kong @ RM 39 & Monks Swizzle @ RM 39
CNY pre gathering at Penang first.
Was told by the lady diner next to me that their desert is a bomb. However it was Valentines day, menu were not available. Will check it out next visit.
However their dining menu (click here) that is being offered at ChinChin Gastrobar seems pretty interesting. I must say I am impress with the platting presentation. I guess chef in Penang have geared up a notch to chase the wild pack in KL. I guess I do not mind to give it a try when I am back again. Cuisine that the are offering in a concept of small plates izakaya style or even omakase is available too. Better term for it is Asian modern dining style.
I read up that, there are mix reviews on their dinner menu, some mention its good some mentions its so so. So really depending on your ingredient of the day. It seems that there are no fix menu as the chef will use the best ingredient to serve which is an omakase menu. By looking at other diners posting their dinner menu, If you do have slightly bigger budget for your dining, I guess you can give it a try. (Nope, I have not tried yet). Were there just to see what is the hype all about, and the drinks.
All I can say is that, if you are a person who love to #ootd then I guess this is the a place that you must come. If a place to chill, there are many other bars that you can consider. (click here)
