This is such a cool laid-back bar. The staff are like clients, mixing and chatting with the guests. They play an eclectic mix of reggae in the fabulous setting of the river at night. What romance!

Great spot to chill by the river and enjoy good company and cocktails. Ryan was super friendly and was a top host creating new cocktails and adding to the laid back party atmosphere. Would definitely come back.

Spent every night during my stay in Melaka. The service is easy and is always open for a chat. It's a quite big choice of different drinks, which you can enjoy direct at the river!
