Aptly named because of its split personality; both a cocktail bar and a nail parlour. That’s as bipolar as it gets.
I would not have paid the nondescript entrance a second glance if I wasn’t actually looking out for it. Looks like a restaurant that’s closed for the day or still under construction.
Upon walking in it was dark, but very very crowded. Without a doubt, Jekyll & Hyde is the newest and hottest bar in town right now. We spotted Ann Kok and celebrity stylist Marty Wong among the other patrons.
Their incompetence in handling crowds is going to be their downfall. When we entered we were not greeted by anybody, shown to a table or told to wait.
So we walked around the room trying to get the attention of someone, anyone. Everyone was really busy. But anyway when we finally did we were told to sit at the bar near the wall. However there were not enough stools so half of us had to stand while the other half sit.
I saw empty tables left vacant because there were no chairs. It’s kind of retarded. What a waste.
And another thing. Can you read this menu. Besides it being too dark, the menu is impossible to read because they used this burnt out font. We gave up halfway and ordered everything off-the-menu because they do custom drinks too.
The drinks took forever to come….
Saw quite a lot of people order something that looked oriental. Asked what it was. It’s an off-the-menu item. Beancurd, Kaya, Sago, Gin. Tasted like nothing alcoholic. Tau Hway! For something that almost everybody ordered, you’d think it’s their signature drink, but I was left disappointed. That said I would recommend you try it for yourself tho 1) cuz it’s so instagram worthy 2) it has a seriously unique flavour just lacking in alcohol.
So I asked for a whiskey based drink with kaya. They gave me a pocky stick too. This is a really good dessert if you’re having after dinner drinks.
