Penang’s night scene is saturated with night clubs and pubs which largely includes binge drinking and vomiting your guts out the day after, at least for teens and young adults these days. We do not endorse such lifestyle and much prefer to just lounge somewhere without feeling the vibrations of loud music on our skin. Tree Bar is one of G Hotel’s baby which was launched not too long ago. It is in close proximity to the backdoor of G hotel, right next to Chilli’s.
Tree Bar is named so because the bar is designed to encircle this big rain tree with the species name “Albizia Saman”. It was intentionally built around it because good environmentalists from G hotel decided that it is a pity to cut off this beautiful 80 year old tree. We sure glad that they kept they tree because it adds so much character and uniqueness to the place. It looks absolutely chill and serene with its dimmed lights and hanging decor at night, simply gorgeous!
We love Tree Bar for many reasons. Apart from its tasteful lounge music, the food was what stood out for us. Most food from bars and pubs leave a bad if not horrible impression I believe, and Tree Bar completely elevates the idea of bar food to something that is not just edible, but sophisticated and good. They offer a myriad of bites and fillers which are priced from RM16++ onwards, which we thought was very reasonable for the quality of food they serve.
Only a fortnight old, Junk Cafe which is located at the heart of Chulia Street is now open for dining. The interior is decorated with antique clocks, manual film cameras, rusty looking musical instruments and wooden old school table and benches. Besides the rusty and old school settings, there were also a collections of the classic gramphone discs displayed on a piano. Behind the wooden door, Junk Cafe continue to surprise us with interesting pieces of “funky” antique and a corner selling the limited edition clothings, shoes and accessories.While on the outside is where the master chef is at work, making the tender and juicy burgers.
