A new hidden bar have surfaced up in KL. With your least expected area as The Curiousity Iron River 好奇鐵河 is operating at Chan Sow Lin, KL. Indeed a hidden gem for the area. If you are a person who loves to be in a second-hand kind of furniture shop, run-down ambience as I called it a rustic heritage building, then this place is a place that you would want to be.
We came here because of Petai Pizza and little did we discover further its a hidden bar. This place has great classic furniture pieces is also because the owner operates a second hand antique furniture shop.
Discovering this place would be a pain in the ass as waze will bring you to a location here you cant park your car. Best is to park your car at Jalan Satu and walk in this bright one-way street alley.
Looking at some blog posting, they have definitely light up the whole place to a new level. More vibrant and captivating. A neon blue sign board and a deck up Avatar kind lighting garden.
This is one of my favourite walkway. I felt that would be a nice instagramable spot.
little did we know that it is actually a nice bar place. We were here quite early, as bout 7.30pm for dinner. Love the ambience of this place as it is like a modern touch up of a Chinese 60’s herbs medicine shop.
We sat in this little room that is filled with unique furniture pieces.
Since we are here, trying out one of my favourite Negroni Cocktail @ RM 33. For this, I think it is more on the sweeter side. Not really my kind of taste or compare to the usuals that I usually have.
Smoked Duck Spaghetti – a better dish for the night compared to the rest.
Petai Pizza is indeed done nicely and the taste of petai is a bit prominent. Just that the dough need some improvement.
Nothing to shout out for the mushroom truffle pizza.
Burnt cheese cake
I would suggest to come here for drinks and enjoy the ambiance.
Indeed a perfect place to hang out as after 9pm, the disco ball is turn on. Totally switched the ambience. They also turn on classic Shangainese songs and also the 60’s and 70’s English songs. Indeed perfect music to be in. Do not mind to come back for round of gathering with friends here.
As they are a newly operated bar, food-wise they still have room for improvement. they need time to adjust and will go back again.
