Tiger Tim's Pub, Tengkat Tong Shin, Kuala Lumpur

Not so much of a new bar but more of a relocation.
But still,it's good to see something open on Tengkat Tong Shin that isn't a Backpacker's Hostel, Foot-Massage Place or a bloody Convenience Store.
Tiger Tim's Pub is the new location for that hole-in-the-wall place "Uptown Bar" aka "Billie's Bar" that has been going for years on the less fashionable part of Changkat Bukit Bintang; close to Jalan Alor-next to the Dry Cleaners.
They've moved it lock,stock and barrel (even the tacky wagon-wheel bench) to just around the corner in Tengkat Tong Shin, between Carrefour and Mutiara Ville, if you're interested.
Which I'm not.
I never liked Uptown Bar...and Tiger Tim's looks the same dark,dingy,grubby and over-priced dump that it's predecessor was.
A mug of Tiger at Happy Hour until 9pm is RM12. and about RM15 thereafter.
And, there's nothing happy about that is there? as you can get it for RM10 just around the corner along Changkat Bukit Bintang.
I guess it's a place you'll either like or hate and some people hang-out in places like this to relax, shoot some pool and flirt with the grubby looking girls that occasionally drop-by.
Ah well, having said that, I guess for a change,it might be OK for a beer or two.....
It's certainly non pretentious and non-posy.
Apologies if you met your future wife in a place like this but I just can't see the attraction here.
