PS150 – Nice Hidden Cocktails Bar in Kuala Lumpur
Hidden behind a faux toy shop in Chinatown Kuala Lumpur, or better known as Petaling Street, PS150 is the swanky hip bar that many cocktail lovers cherish. This row of shops was used to be brothel, house and warehouse, now the vintage darlings for a perfect speakeasy cocktail bar.
Divided into 3 spaces, this dimly lit bar is the place to go if you fancy some nice cocktails. Push open the first door, ‘Vintage’, which is the Pre-Prohibition era is the 1st space set up in vintage single booths. This is the quieter place to have more of a private conversation away from the hustling background noise of people in a bar.
The next space is ‘Tiki’ which is the Post-War era, which is a bigger and more open space with greens climbing across the walls.
Last but not least is the main bar, and it is called ‘Contemporary’ which is the Revival era. The neon-lit “Petaling Street” sign in Chinese is the most pictured part of PS150. This room is the liveliest, noisiest and the most crowded (probably because it’s air-conditioned too). Table reservations are highly recommended if you want a space of your own, else you will likely be standing through the night. PS150’s cocktail menu here is divided into five eras much like the 3 spaces in the bar: Vintage (1850s-1910s), Classic (1920s-1930s), Tiki (1940s-1960s), Disco (1970s-2000s) and Contemporary (late 2000s-present). I personally love the ‘Asam Boi Margarita’ from the Classic menu, a sweet & sour margarita combo with strong & long finishing. Here, most of their signature cocktails price around RM40 each and trust me they are worth it because they are very strong doses of cocktails.
