Waikiki Bar- Kelab Syabas PJ

Sat nite was some Waikiki experience. I've dined at Out of Africa many times and always wondered about the noisy bar above called Waikiki Bar. Told all my friends that we'll just grab some beer and catch the supposed fantastic live bands that plays there. If anyone doesn't know, Kelab Syabas is a shabby little place same row as the 24H A&W. When we got there, my friends were immediately skeptical, the shoddy walkway to the bar, the pathetic decor of the bar, one little pool table, and old MTVs playing on the screen. Frankly, I loved it that they play old MTVs....it's kinda rare and you gotta be a real oldies fan to have those. We sat down and wow, RM32 per jug ! Loaded in 4 jugs immediately- happy hour style. But I was in it really for the music, and waited patiently. The band SWV came in at about 9.45pm, and man, played all the great rock songs- Dyer Maker- Led Zeppelin, Born To Be Wild- Steppenwolf, Have You Ever Seen The Rain- CCR, etc. The place although small, is a gem in the heart of PJ.

Well, Waikiki is great if you love 80's. But it gets annoying when the DJ comes on and plays new songs - and on top of it all, we are "blessed" with Indians from estates all over Klang Valley every now and then...bloody irritating...

hey gallivanter thanks for introducing Waikiki to me- we truly enjoyed the great rock songs, and SWV played so well...what about other bands that play on other days? Any good?

Gallivanter said...

Yup, the other bands are not too bad too. Just avoid "Bala" at all cost. The rest are pretty unique. In fact I'm going there shortly since tmrw's a public holiday. :-)
