Gypsy Bar,Changkat Bukit Bintang,Kuala Lumpur

Christmas Eve 2009
A rather good,fun night in Gypsy Bar to celebrate Christmas Eve.
Things started a little slow but you need to be early if you want to lay claim to some bar-space.
The music being played early in the evening was pretty dreadful with slow and miserable xmas songs but that changed at around 10pm when the crowds came.
The staff were all dressed-up in Santa outfits and handed-out goody bags and door gifts to everyone who entered. Silly-string,snow spray and party-poppers soon filled the air.
The atmosphere was great and the crowd very friendly with a good mix of locals and expats.
The service was very good-and very prompt.The staff didn't seem to get an order wrong and the bill was correct.
Scotch drinkers who bought a bottle were able to enter a raffle-to win more scotch! quite a good ploy and even non-whisky drinkers like us were given a small bottle "on the house".
It's also worth noting that the quality of the Tiger beer has improved quite considerably.There have been times when I've had to send-back a beer because it was either flat or too warm but I understand from one of the barmen that they now store the kegs in a chilled environment so hopefully bad beer is a thing of the past.
Also noted was that after serious alcohol-fuelled experimentation that it's more cost-effective to drink mugs of Tiger for RM10 rather than pints of Tiger for RM 18.
The water supply gave-up sometime late at night so clean glasses and flushing toilets became somewhat of a problem but that didn't seem to spoil the party atmosphere.
A top night out! and only an average hangover on Christmas morning.

New Year's Eve was even better!
