Secrets and rendezvous that these teak lined walls have witnessed inside the Sarkies Bar surely made their way into a classic tale of the Far East. Our legendary lounge continues to make memories, still the place to be in this city, sipping a Strand Sour or unwinding at the billiard table.

Smoking and non-smoking sections available. Service excellent if they are NOT too much busy. Price is okay, reasonable!! Myanmar beer served in bottle, no draft beer, only Dagon is an option for draft beer.
