Description: COOLEST restaurant bar in town! Located right in the heart of the Historical Melaka which has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site makes Bucket Bar so magical and memorable for all travelers. After a day of touring the amazing city, it is time to see the beautiful people get together who loves and needs music with an ice cold beer in hand in the cosy and air-conditioned bar or sit outdoors. Hangout with a your buddies or come meet new fellow travelers! For the gastronomically adventurous, try some of our fantastic local Nyonya and Chinese food or even some spicy Portuguese and Spanish tapas! Shoot some pool or listen to live music on Fridays and Saturdays! If you have not been to Bucket Bar Melaka, you have not seen Melaka.

We reached there at 12am, little hungry. leaving the kids at casa del rio.

The owner offered us pretty hotdog buns and fries. As his chef has left, we were happy with the food.

The ambience was really good with nice music.

The plus point was the friendly owner, very chatty and cool guy. We drank quite a bit, carlsberg.
If not a beer lover, there is the honey wine which is very yummy.

We stayed till 230am, enjoying the rain and companion!

Will give it excellent, if the owner did not perists on getting his 10cents change. Hahaha.

Love this place, a good chill out after the hectic Jonker street.

Great place to relax and chill. We came after jonker nite mkt and arrived at almost 12am. It was a quiet nite and thought we'll just have 2 beers and head back to the hotel. Ended up we engaged in a very entertaining conversation with Yong the boss. We talked like we've known many years! He is very friendly and chatty. A decent place to play pool games and chit chat, restrooms are spotlessly clean! Very well maintained. It's located just opp the tourist police outside jonker walk, first shop nearest to Christ church. Not as rowdy and crowded like the bars in jonker walk. Will definitely go again in our nxt trip to Melaka!!
