Headed here for a drink one night whilst in Georgetown and a man (who we later found to be the owner) encouraged us to sit at the large table at the front of the bar to enjoy a free drink (ladies get free drinks every night between 5 and 7). As the night went on, more and more people were encouraged to join our table until there were 10 of us, all chatting amongst ourselves and getting to know each other.

Because of this, we made friends who we arranged to meet again the next night at the same bar. Looks like this is the owner's strategy for a full bar and return business, and it worked! Highly recommend this place! It's definitely worth the initial 5 minutes of awkward conversation :)

This bar is brilliant for cheap drink for the guys and free drinks for the ladies.. Think its between 5-9 pm everyday. Its an excellent place to meet other travellers and share stories. Open mic or karaoke at night is entertaining and fun to watch or if you dare join.

Small shop lot with a crowd of travelers. The chinese guy in charge does a good job of bringing in the tourists together. Albeit, sometimes he overdoes it. Beers are cheap, staff are decent.

I was invited for a free drink (all women are between 6 and 9 pm) and as soon as I sat down, other people sat down and the owner immediately encouraged us to talk together. Soon we were around 20 people from all over the world and in large age ranges talking together at the outdoor table. Everytime new people arrived, the owner got them feeling welcome and invited them into conversations.
I had garlic bread (very boring) and drinks are probably a bit more expensivet han elsewhere, but it does not really matter as the atmosphere end the experience is so much worth it!
