A stylish yet playful take on the speakeasy bar, Chaze is located on the second floor of Marquee at Menara Lien Hoe. Pressing through an unmarked door reveals a wardrobe adorned with dashing clothes fit for a debonair gentleman who appreciates the finer things in life (socializing with a cocktail in his hand being paramount), and it is this fictional character, and those ladies and gentlemen in the real world with similar taste, that Chaze has been created for. At the wardrobe, a set of velvet curtains parts to reveal the Living Hall, a cozy space filled with luxurious Chesterfield couches, bold geometric wall tiles, and striking art pieces alongside a long bar and parlour games like table tennis and billiards. To the right lies The Playroom, a private space accessible by door code only that is home to plush purple couches, puzzle-piece-shaped pouffes, and diversions like darts and karaoke. Cocktails are special at Chaze, all presented with a flair for creativity. The Mint Julep Popsicle, for example, is a mix of Bourbon, mint leaves, lime juice, and bitters served in a frosty tin cup with a red port wine popsicle. Other stunners include the fun and floral Glasgow Jar – whisky, butterscotch liqueur, American spiced bourbon liqueur, vermouth, fruit juices, and bitters garnished with beef jerky – and the smoky Chaze’s Concoction – mezcal, homemade honey-pineapple syrup, chilli, and lavender, served with salted pistachios. A nearly-endless supply of spirits, wine, shooters, bubbles and aperitifs are also poured in addition to solid mocktails and tasty bar bites.
