Straits Quay is one of the latest attraction in Penang that located itself at Tanjung Tokong which can be access thru Island Plaza as it had just open for around 2 months and I believe it is going soon to be a popular place among all the locals and outstations. This place is build by the sea area that going to host alot of Restaurant and Bars to operate it. To me, this place is definately will boost Penang F&B industry to another level with its classy English look. Alot of Penang bloggers had flock and blogged about this place, now including me too. Hang out at Berlin’s Bier Houz .
A huge center area that in the future can host many events here and with seriously high ceilings that enable it to be more cooling.
I guess in this alley, if cafe’s and some fashion boutique open in this area, gonna make it more like foreign shopping feel.
When I walked in, I just got to know that, they have indoor shopping that only have 2 levels which more like other countries are doing.
For night view, I am certainly impress with the feel of it as in the future, in this middle area, all those nice and exclusive yatch are going to dock here, and at the last 6 levels are residential area that have its own style which is quite unique in interior.
At the side walk, it gives me the feeling more like a modern type of Gurney with its huge sidewalk and of course there are a few Bar already operating around this area like Finnegans Bar and not to be miss this German Bar.
Berlin’s Bier Houz is a German & European Bistro is one of the few bar is currently operating in the area.
A very cosy feel with wooden table, floor and dim lights on the ceiling with old style building painting at the wall do stir the ambiance up.
If you are looking for nice German Draft Beer to hunt for, I would say this is one of the bar to consider as they offer quite a range.
With at least 5 on draft to offer for German Beer Range, with the likes of Erdinger Weissbier, Erdinger Weissbier Dark, Erdinger Dunkel and a few more.
This is the pricing of their beer yet it is still cheaper than the one’s offering in KL. They do have happy hour rate and if you are looking for all night long, Sunday is their Happy Hour all day long. Hoegarden is available too but in bottle.
This is our 1 pint of beer and I brought Esther here as she was in Penang for a few days. .. We are happy with our Happy Hour Deal that comes to around RM26 for 1 pint. For those who love lighter beer and more aromatic and a bit sweet in taste, I would suggest to go after Erdinger more like our Tiger as in light in taste and those who love a bit more bitter and stronger taste, go for Weissbier more like Carlsberg.
Non Happy Hour is around RM30 per pint.
If you dont like to be seated in there and prefer some where outside to enjoy the sea breeze if it is windy day, then consider outside especially with smokers. I spend 3 nights over here and it is always near full house.
I guess this is one of the new place that I will stick on when I am back to Penang and going to be one of my recommended place for a bar to hang out at the moment. Food I have just not yet try. You guys try it out then share with all of us. 🙂
