Sarawak: The Other Side

The grass really is greener here

Even though Kuching is the largest city in Sarawak, finding a place that serves decent cocktails is still surprisingly challenging. The search becomes even worse when you narrow it down to speakeasy bars, which are preferred for their air of exclusivity and mystery. If you’re struggling to find a nice speakeasy bar in Kuching to relax in with your friends, we recommend checking out The Other Side. Just head on over to EZ Life Cafe down at Jalan Song Thian Cheok, where you’ll find three doors near the entrance. Good luck in choosing the right one that leads to the bar — you only get three tries!

What You Can Expect

Despite its incredible atmosphere and high-quality craft cocktails, The Other Side still hasn’t blown up all over social media. Therefore, you’ll get to keep this amazing bar a secret between you and your pals, at least for the time being. Once you enter The Other Side, you can expect to find a small but comfortable space filled with tables and stools and even greenery hanging from the ceiling. You can also sit at the bar located at the far end of the cosy space, which is decorated with countless bottles of liquor and the quirky neon lights shown above.
