Grab A Brewski!

In honour of Oktoberfest this month, we hunt down some of KL’s best beer bars and watering holes, where you can enjoy a cold one or two.

Bricks & Barrels

A real no-frills type, Bricks & Barrels is a gastro pub and beer garden lifted straight out of a European city, with a food and drink menu rife with classics. The interior features a diverse mix of modern and retro furnishing with brick walls and iron fixtures, while the al fresco seating outside has a relaxed casual vibe, complete with wooden chairs and potted plants.

The bar also boasts a regular live band, playing a mix of hits, making it the ideal destination for an after-work drink. Come during happy hour and enjoy RM10 pints together with the bar’s signature pizzas and burgers.


With no less than 33 flat screens and a few large screen projectors occupying this Bangsar hangout, Gridiron has been designed with the sports connoisseur in mind. Located on trendy Telawi, the bar stands out thanks to its neon lighting and futuristic décor.

An all-day happy hour promotion on pints of Tiger, Kilkenny and Guinness sees the place quickly filled up on Mondays, Thursdays and Sundays, while on every Friday night is Tiger beer o’clock, where customers can indulge in pints for as low as RM4.70.

Taps Beer Bar

Wholly dedicated to craft beer, the Taps Beer Bar offers an expansive range of craft beers from all over the world. Beerholics can find everything from pale ales and imperial stouts, to lagers and ciders from Japan, England, Australia and the USA to name a few.

The décor is simple but tasteful, featuring cement floors, exposed brick walls and a performance space where patrons can kick back and listen to live music every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night. The bar also regularly rotates their beers for diversity, so every visit here brings a new surprise!
