You finally made it through a long week of phone calls, e-mails, incessant meeting, rushing to meet impossible deadlines, pleasing clients – and all that while battling crazy traffic every morning. You want to blow off some steam tonight by hitting the bar and chugging down some cold ones, but your bank balance tells you that it cannot be done. You have 2 options now; go home and cry or keep reading this article, because we have compiled some super cheap joints for you to party at tonight – and it won’t hurt your bank balance
1. Beer Factory
Beer Factory have got their Factory Sale that drags the beer price down to the ground! If you come before 6pm, a mug of their Tiger beer will only cost you less than RM10. However, if you come after, make sure to bring a group because 2 dozens bottles of their Tiger beer is only RM240! Or maybe down it all by yourself, why not? For their happy hour, 5 normal mugs will cost you from RM55, and the same price for 3 big mugs.
2. Twenty Eight, Bangsar
Another strong contender for cheap beer, wine, whiskey and pretty much everything alcohol. Nestled amongst a row of bars in Jalan Telawi, Twenty Eight easily stands out with throngs of people packing the place up. During their happy hour, you can get a single mug of their Tiger beer for just RM13. However, if you miss the happy hour, the price will start at RM15 per mug.
