This bar is located on Love Lane, in a lively backpacker area. It's a cool bar with graffiti on the walls and live music and is as popular with locals as it is with tourists.

Good place for people watching, lots of Expats hang out in this area. Good place for Night Life Street Happenings. Good food, lots of variety restaurants nearby to stroll and check out the scene. No need to dress up, nor for refinement. A very casual place to dine, especially if you were out exploring and sightseeing all day. A good place to graffiti your name and add in your history. They highly encourage it too! It started to rain hard as we were dining, but the weather cleared and the night life of Fun continued. A must experience.

Was there tonight with my wife. Had two meals and a bottle of wine. All normal.
Was then given a bill without asking for it. A while later was accosted by a member of staff who insisted we pay up. Very insistently, even though we still had not finished our drinks. Just to note that the bar was not particularly busy.
Basically we were told to pay up and get out. Really weird and upsetting. Never happened to us anywhere before.
Will never go here again or advise anybody else to do so.

Dear Sir,

We apologize for your unfortunate experience in Micke's Place recently. We take complains such as this seriously. The staff involved has been reprimanded over his actions. As info it is part of our SOP that we collect payment as soon drinks or food is served but that's during pub hours when the crowd turnout is high. We will strive to train our staff to have proper judgement's on situations like this. Sorry once again for the inconvenience caused.

Sat in here now, the place is alive, live acoustic set being played.

I just arrived in Penang an hour ago, stopped outside to ask for directions to my hotel, so I thought I'd pop back in and have a beer or two.

Decided to order food also. Went for the Malay Veg Curry with a side of rice. Really nice, packed full of broccoli, Cauliflower, peas, runner beans etc. Not too spicy.
I paid 15 Ringgit (£2.95)

Beer was in a half glass, I got Heineken which was also 15 Ringgit, bit pricey. Works out at £6 a pint.
Not sure if this is normal as it's the first bar I've been into at the moment.
