Tucked away in a basement and founded by talented duo Shawn Chong and Karl Too, Omakase + Appreciate captures one’s attention even before one pushes open its ventilation cupboard door. Ranked number 10 on the inaugural Asia’s 50 Best Bars 2016 list, this speakeasy bar promises a spectacular night with craft cocktails.
A multiple award winner for Malaysia even before he turned 30, Shawn Chong is one of the nation’s pride and glory in the bartending scene. The talented bartender was just a waiter at Hilton Kuala Lumpur’s Senses restaurant when he took home his first Diageo World Class title in 2009.
