Batubar, is located within the stunning Lone Pine Hotel (the younger chic sister of the E&O). Known for its attractive setting and reasonable food and beverage prices, especially for a hotel, this cool location is a great retreat to hang out with your partner and friends on holidays, or for Penangites to chill after work.
Batubar’s resident DJ is one of the multitalented staff at Lone Pine Hotel. Running various restaurant operations, he also doubles as a super cool music mixer injecting rhythm and energy into the veins of those fortunate enough to catch a tune.
Every Friday is Ladies’ Night. Las Chicas can be pampered with free flow beverages – yay for the girls! The boys however, can still leave the bar without burning too big of a hole in their pockets as cocktails start from a very reasonable RM15. We tasted a few such as the popular, Sex on the Beach and Long Island Iced Tea. To my personal liking though was the Citrus Mojito – a bomb of fresh mint and orange… very tasty and a great un-inhibitor to start partying along with the tunes and let yourself feel the rhythm of the waves… hee, hee, Andale… Andale!

For those who are not keen on drinking cocktails, a mix of old and new world wines, alongside a handful of beers and spirits are available for your pleasure.
Reason to visit: excellent resident DJ, great service, Ladies’ Night with free flow beverages for the gals, a good place to relax after work
