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

Tofu Cafe.: My favorite beer spot in Melaka.
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.
