Live music has some exceptional ability to soothe someone’s soul. Perhaps the change of voice singing to a familiar tune gives it this ability. Alternatively, maybe this ability comes from the amazing sound quality delivered by the sophisticated musical instruments present at live music venues. However, regardless of the reason, live music has a soothing effect that people love. It seems to understand people’s stresses from all-day toiling and calm them down at the same time. This makes the evening better, and the audience simply relaxes due to its melodic, soothing tunes.

  1. Alexis Bistro Ampang


Alexis is a cool bar with a wood-fired oven offering a wide variety of western and Asian food, an extensive variety of wines to choose from, fresh cakes and pastries and live jazz performances that host local and international artists.

However, two factors bar Alexis Bistro from getting the best appreciation from its customers. First is the soft drinks offered here. After paying an enormous amount of money, you get served with a canned soft drink in a tiny glass full of ice. The dishes. Another trick employed at Alexis is a reduction of serving portions. Although everyone is out to make profits, the food served at Alexis is way too little than it was in the last years. This mainly happens in the Great Eastern Mall outlet.

However, although the serving portions are less, it gives you an opportunity of tasting their excellent cakes.

Despite having these bugbears, Alexis is still a cool, stylish bistro. The chefs are here well known for their skills that deliver nothing but delicious dishes.

If you’ve not visited Alexis, make a point of attending to enjoy the super cool jazz live performances.
