Pinchos Tapas Bar,Changkat Bukit Bintang

Pinchos has been open for about 12 months now and is fast becoming a popular hangout.
When I used to walk past a while back,it always seemed a bit empty and devoid of atmosphere,especially during the week.Weekends were a little busier but still not that great.
over time and word-of-mouth recommendations,Pinchos is now pretty much packed every night and has built-up a crowd of regulars, mainly expats with a few locals arriving later. So get there early if you want a table.Sitting outside is a bit more comfortable than being inside.
Happy hours are priced at RM11 for a mug,which isn't too bad but after 9pm rises to RM14.
As with lots of places on Changkat Bukit Bintang,the beer quality can sometimes be open to question.
The tapas (non halal) is pretty damn good though-no,on second thoughts it's excellent! and averages about RM16-RM25 per plate,which seems a bit on the steep side,but you get good quality and tasty snacks...leaving you hungry for more and perhaps with a bigger bill than you first anticipated!

The decor is plain,simple and comfortable, the service is very good and the staff are polite,friendly and knowledgeable.
It can get quite warm inside and surprisingly noisy with a slight,annoying echo as everyone raises their voices to be heard over everyone else. The Latin music can also become a bit tedious but what else do you expect from a Tapas Bar?

Definitely a welcome addition to the local scene.
