    Geographer Cafe: Main Cafe cum Bar in Jonker Street

    by machomikemd Updated Jun 25, 2014

    at the middle of the historic Jonker Street corner Jalan Hang Jekir lies a two story Cafe cum Bar in an ambiance of pre-war Malaccan Shop House Architecture is the Geographer Cafe, which was opened in 1999 and since then draws practically all kinds of crowds. You will not miss it as it is the only structure in Jonker Street with palm leaves around the building.

    this place has smooth jazz and light music playing and has an extensive selection of malaysian and international dishes (halal) and quite costly beers and cocktail (beers starting at RM 32) and is the most popular nite spot in Jonker Street and Jalan Hang Jekir (where most of the bars in Chinatown is located).

    Hours

    Mon - Sat: 10:00 am - 1:00 am

    Sun: 8:00 am - 1:00 am

    according to their website:

    Geographér Café is conveniently located in a conspicuous corner pre-war shophouse right in the heart of Chinatown, Old Malacca. This eatery with its warm ambience reflects the gracious old charm of the seasoned traveller and truly maintains the tradition in a place where East meets West.

    Visitors are provided a window with a "Living Museum" as they keep an exciting look-out for the bustling activities that pulse through the many narrow streets nearby, which are lined with shops, houses and buildings, centuries old. Within walking distance from Geographer Cafe, history is alive in abundance from Geographer Cafe. The oldest Chinese Temple and Muslim Mosque are located on harmony street, a short stroll away. This beautiful old architecture respond to cultural and spiritual expectations from the glorious past till the present day.

    Tofu Cafe.: My favorite beer spot in Melaka.

    by cachaseiro Written Jul 15, 2012

    Tofu cafe is a small cafe in the heritage part of Melaka and really just a small hole in the wall cafe, but it's a very nice hole in the wall if you ask me and very friendly.
    It's a small cafe run by a chinese family that serves drinks all day long and most of the night too.
    Prices are very resonable for malaysian standards and the family who runs the place are really nice.
    They also have a computer that you can use free of charge if you are in the cafe aswell as they have free wifi.
    this little laid back place is my favorite place in Melaka for a late afternoon cold beer.

    Harpers restaurant and lounge.: Drinking spot with a view.

    by cachaseiro Updated Jul 15, 2012

    Harpers restaurant and lounge is a nice little bar/restaurant situated right by the river in the heritage part of Melaka.
    It's slightly upscale and has a very good selection of spirits for those who like that and also a resonable selection of beer.
    The place seems to be quite big on wine and they had some specials going there for wine when i visited, but i opted for beer though.
    If you get one of the tables by the windows then you are almost sitting with your feet in the river as it's right below the house.
    The house it is in is an old chinese house that is being restored at the time writing and it's a nice looking place.
    If you don't mind paying a little over average then this is a cool spot to go for a few drinks.

    Other than the usual tourist spots such as Jonker Street...Geographer or Ringo. Try Pure Bar, they have live band upstairs and they are open every Wed-Sat. Live local bands and some from the Philippines play the latest songs and some older ones from Rock to R&B. In-house DJs spin R&B and hip hop. Every Wednesdays are ladies' nite so free cocktails for the ladies.

    Ringo Classics and Antiques: Rod Stewart just here ;)

    by ukirsari Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The interior of this cafe is full with oldiest things. A truely vintage atmosphere. Like banner and logo of Coke, F&N and Tiger. The table made from old sewing machine 'Singer' [remind me of my Granny's :)].

    Then the only singer, Ringo performing the songs of 80s and several of Rod Stewart's. He also playing keyboard and guitar by himself. And hearing his voice is sooooo cool. He can sing exactly as the real singers.

    When I ask about his ability, his answer is, "I learn by myself. Hear the song first then recorded it with my tape. If there's close to the real, it means .. 'Okay, I can sing this song for the guests'." And especially me, Ringo sang 'Too young to be married'. Terima kasih, Man! :)

    Geographer Cafe: On Jonker Street

    by Willettsworld Written Aug 22, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Melaka's nightlife centres around Jonker Street with a handful of cafes that double as lounges once the sun sets. In a corner shophouse, The Geographer Cafe is the classiest of the lot and attracts a mature crowd with soft jazz, cocktails and high-quality cuisine. If you walk down the street that runs down the side of it, you'll come to a few more bars.

    D'Arts Cafe: Great Place for Beer & Snacks

    by Jerry6570 Updated Jul 15, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Great place to have beer. After scouting for an hour my verdict was that beer sold at this cafe is priced lower as compared to other place around Jonker St and surrounding areas.
    Sam who owns this place is a great host. Also the chef who works here wips up great nibbles for your beer. And I must admit great tasting too. Sam has got some great collection of music. There is a pool table and free WiFi for patrons.
    Overall experience is absolutely tops. I would certainly recommend this place to anyone visiting Melaka.

    Jonker Walk is an open air night market held every weekend ( and recently extended to eve of public holidays ) evening to late night. Have a leisure stroll along the street, observing the locals' life, catching a free performance and shop for some local souvenirs can be a wonderful and unforgettable experience.

    Melaka raya: Which Nightlife

    by vinc_bilb Updated Feb 4, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Excepted some nightclubs in hotels (Bayview, ...) nightlife seems to be flatt, excepted for those who like Karaokes. If so, most of the well-known Karaoke are located in the hot spot of Melaka, Melaka Raya streets (one night club also, end of the street).
    Sometime good live musik also, but verry strong.

    Dress Code: No restrictions in my view

  • Dutch Harbour Cafe: Memorable Night in A Dutch Garden

    by traveller_addict Written Oct 26, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is unbelievably different. Relaxing while drinking a thirst-quenching Caribbean Perrier Mocktail in a gorgeous garden. I can smell the roasted coffee and my buddy Espresso Segafredo is on its way. One thing I really love this place is the place. Very nicely done. To add its uniqueness, it is located by the river. You can choose to sit by the river and also in the garden. I chose the garden because of the green plants around me. The smooth Jazz music is playing and we are surrounded by attentive and friendly staffs who never forget to smile.
    The main dining area(historical building) is nice. Posters portraying Holland are on the wall. Tulips, The Hague,etc. One poster is very interesting as it shows the different coffee shops in Amsterdam. What captures me is 2 clocks that show both Malaysian and Holland local times. That is creative. Bathroom is absolutely clean.

    In terms of the food, My favorite food is Pepperoni Pizza and Beef Croquette. The pizza is so good and I can finish it up by myself. Only available in 1 size(12"). RM22 only(No tax though). It is so tasty.Just have to wait around 20 minutes but it is worth waiting.Cheesy and nice pan dough.The croquette is beautifully served on a plate with a bread. Very hot in the middle but very tasty. It is like a nugget but long(about 6 inches).I also had Cassava Fries as a starter and it different. Not oily and you should try this. Not many places offer this.
    My favorite drink is Caribbean Perrier mocktail. It is mixture of Grenadine at the bottom(red color), fresh orange juice and Perrier. Got a little cute umbrella with a hotel-standard garnish.Price wise,it is average. Mineral water RM2. Fresh fruit juice RM5.I forgot about the cheese cake that I had. I had Mississippi Mud cheese cake(RM8) and it is rewarding. Worth buying.

    Dress Code: Casual. You can wear whatever you want. Most of the patrons are tourists

    Jonker Walk: Night Bazaar at Jonker Walk

    by yipsufen Updated Jun 24, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Jalan Hang Jebat or Jonker Walk will be closed at 6pm - 12 midnight on Friday, Saturday and Sunday to make way for a night bazaar. So be remember to remove your car by that time. Or else your car will be stucked there until midnight or you even might get a fine ticket.

    This street which is about 1km long becomes bustling with activities. Stalls are set up in front of shop houses, selling all kind of thngs, mainly souvenirs, knick-knacks, handicarfts, toys, wooden clogs, hawker food etc. If you are looking for some good quality stuff, walk in to the shops for bargain. Wooden clogs seem to be the local souvenir or specialty here.

    You may also want to try the local snacks like fried yam dice, dim sum, Nyonya dessert, popiah (spring roll with turnip filling), pau, etc. They are inexpensive. You can even find grilled cuttlefish here which is rare nowadays.
