You know you're too young to be lurking around here when my post title didn't get you humming to a certain 80s song. Go away.
Best library ever!
There are 5 Carnegie bars in the world - US, Taipei, Hong Kong, Perth and KL. The KL bar opened in late 2004 and is the most recent addition to the Carnegie family.
Like an art gallery. Only better.
The interior of Carnegie's reminded me a little of Hard Rock with pretty much the same concept - a bar, restaurant, loud music, lots and LOTS of framed pictures and posters on the walls and psychadelic (bad) lighting. Dark enough to make everybody look good. Great ambience for drinking and making merry with friends.
I know that my photo taking skills are teh noob. Farkoff.
Simon & Garfunkel.
Rocking live band. Great singing voices, except they were playing songs from Light & Easy FM, slow easy listening for the over 50s. Not too appealing to, well, kids like us. This was on a Thursday (vodka shots night), and it was pretty quiet during the later part of the night with only the old angmoh men left. Maybe because it was a Thursday. Maybe the music chased everybody away. Hee hee.
Ladies night is on every Wednesday and starts from 9pm onwards. First 4 drinks are free and subsequent drinks are 50% off and unlike Wednesday it is PACKED with young executives. The really, Really, REALLY nice owner of the bar personally goes around distributing the drink coupons to the ladies... a bit hamsap also if you think about it... 'cause he gets to check out ALL the chicks in his establishment too. Heh. Gotcha!
.... and the whole of Sunday is Happy Hour. This makes Carnegie's = Church of alcoholism and all things alcoholic. Henceforth, we shall congregate at this holy venue and baptise ourselves in the sweet nectar of the heaven's on this sacred day of days. *hic*
A view of the DJ console.
Word of advice - NEVER go there on an empty stomach. EVER. I don't know which zoo the REALLY NICE owner picked up these servers from but they have a memory of a dying goldifsh and reflexes of a 100 year old tortoise. Sometimes they forget your orders. And sometimes it take an average of 30 minutes for orders to come. Service is serious absolute CRAP. I mean they are really nice and apologetic about fucking up and stuff, but if you're going to consistently FUCK IT UP then you're not REALLY sorry are you?!?! ARgh! Thinking about how SHITTY the service is makes me want to stab their eyeballs out with a fork.
Cocktails can get a bit weak too which is excellent for wussy drinkers, but I like mine a LITTLE BIT stronger thanks.
Oh, mind the steps to the toilet. It's one flight of stairs DOWN, with big spaces in between like a makeshift fire exit. A feat which can be a little tricky when you're a little tipsy.
Did I mention that the owner's really nice? A very pleasant jovial caucasian man with his really pretty wife. He's there all the time. Man, it's great to be the wife of a bar owner. No wait, it's GREAT to BE the owner of a bar! DRINKS EVERY NIGHT FOR FREE! Well, sorta, I mean you did pay for them as part of your stock didn't you? Shucks.
Chicks dance for free.
On Wednesdays they have a couple of chicks wearing tight white tees and shorts so tight it contricted MY breathing shaking their booty like Beyonce ON THE BAR. The owner asked me if I wanted to join them. I'm all like.. ernothanksbye.
I wonder how much they get paid...
Just chug it.
That's a PINT of Hoegaarden. DRAUGHT. Muahahaha! Carnegie's, I think, is the ONLY PLACE in Malaysia which serves DRAUGHT HOEGAARDEN. That's FIVE GOLD STARS for this place. Sucky servers? Whah? Who? *hiC*
Just look at it! The fucking pint glass is almost as big as my HEAD I could almost DROWN in this shit!! WOOT!
