With the walls of this brand new tavern plastered with interesting beer-oriented decor and teeming with all things Guinness, it is no wonder why Phat Barrels KL is heralded the ‘House of Guinness’.

This latest addition to Publika’s line-up of watering holes had a seemingly cosy your-local-neighbourhood-pub setting to it, with dark wooden furnishings, exposed brickwork, bare granite walls, tall beer barrel-shaped tables and olden-day, monochrome artwork illuminated by dim spotlighting.


By the bar of Phat Barrels! Cool


Yes, you peeps totally should. Why? Read on. 😀


Last Thursday, I was invited to the soft launch of Phat Barrels for a night of live music, delicious pub grub, imported/micro-brews/hand-crafted beers and an engaging atmosphere.

New kid on the block is looking packed on the first day!


Let’s give this new watering hole a little tour, shall we? Big Smile


 Celebrations always seem synonymous with balloons, streamers and bright colours!

The popcorn machine  piqued my interest!


And we only know good things can pop out of that machine!

 Most people flock to Phat Barrels for three main things – to dine, tap and chill!


 And that’s exactly what we did all night.


On to the first – DINING!

Here are some of the European pub grub we had for dinner, courtesy of Phat Barrels.


 Lamb Shank

The portion was of a sizable wonder! This was tender, delicious and definitely marinaded very well too.


 Spaghetti Aglio Olio

I didn’t taste it but my buddies who did had no complaints!


 The Bavarian Platter

Strictly for sharing unless you have a the appetite of the whole African continent

It probably doesn’t look huge from the photo but trust me, it is! Several of us shared this with delight.

It consisted of chicken fillets, beef back ribs, beef short ribs,

two different kinds of sausages, and a serving of fries.


Beef Sirloin Steak

This was done medium. Loved how juicy this was! The sauce complimented the meat superbly.


Second – TAPPING!

We had free-flow of Guinness towers and other beers by the Guinness-Anchor group.

What I’m sipping on is a tall glass of Tiger Radler!

Check out what Guinness did later in the year at their AMPLIFY Live Tour here if you’re into soulful music and good beer!


On to the third – CHILLING.

Cue the party pictures for the night with some of my fave girls and boys. Enjoy!



We dined, tapped and chilled the night away over live entertainment by local band 9 Lives.

I had fun singing along to their crooning of popular R&B, soothing Blues and contemporary Pop Rock numbers!

Lead singer Joy’s melodic voice and the band’s instrumental skills

was the perfect musical accompaniment of our evening.


Thank you Phat Barrels, for having me on a fantastic night of celebration and weekday evening escape!
