Peppermint Bistro: After 12?
Melaka Night life starts really late, even on a weekend...
Walking into the clubs at 12midnite and not finding a crowd seemed alien to me as I was used to the KL clubbing scene (although I've also retired from that scene for some time!)
Nevertheless, when the crowd started coming in, the tables turned and we had a blast at Peppermint...
DJ played a good mix of R&B, club mix, pop and rock...A good mix of music..
Dress Code: Wear what you want..No bouncer is going to throw you out... heheeh

Ringo Classic: A beatle here?
The place also deals with antiques as well as being a nice simple pub to chill anytime of the day. Ringo himself plays live music every 1/2 hr alternating with the opposite cafe which plays the other 1/2 hr so that the 2 won't clash.
Ringo is a classic musician who loves the great oldies and he sings well too. Given that he is a 1-man band on his own with his guitar, harmonica and electric synthesizer for light drum beats, I must say his co-ordination is great.
Happy hrs are from 4:30 to 9pm everyday and a beer only costs 6RM during that period of time!!!
Dress Code: Anything goes in here. There is no U-18 for kids and all are welcome here.
