One of the quiet bars here! Beer is rather normal priced!! Expensive crackers(obligated??) which you can get a pint of beer!!! No live music on that day!!! A place where you will just want to have a drink and go off!!!

I like Cowboy. It's refreshingly...normal. KK is filled with overpriced nightclubs and tourist bars, or MDNP (Malaysian Duty Not Paid ;-) ) street cafes... Cowboy bar is a genuine bar. It has a wooden floor, cigarette smoke, a pool table and a sign over the...More
