Accomplished mixology and speakeasy vibe at multi-awarded hidden retro-styled bar
July 6th, 2022
Located within the upscale dining and lifestyle-focused Bangsar Shopping Center in urban Kuala Lumpur, Three x Co attracts a discerning clientele with top-class cocktails created by the experienced bar team. The speakeasy-inspired space is hidden behind a faux garage/barber shop facade – welcoming guests to its dimly lit cozy interior. Recently listed at #70 in the extended list of Asia’s 50 Best Bars 2022 awards – in recognition of the innovative cocktail program and polished service at Three x Co. A popular destination for relaxed evening drinks since its opening in late 2017, Three x Co continues to impress and maintain its standing within KL’s burgeoning cocktail bar scene.
At the bar, a well-curated collection of premium spirits is highlighted by a focus on an eclectic selection of gins and whiskies. Currently, the cocktail menu conceived by co-owner and multi-awarded mixologist David Han features signature cocktails under two categories – Cockytails Signature Series – featuring cocktails that are local and oriental-inspired – with some nods to childhood memories – exemplified by the Balik Pulau – a clarified milk cocktail using Hendrick’s gin and a local Penang forgotten fruit – white nutmeg. While the other series – the Inner Circle’s List – showcases classic cocktails with a modern twist – the Gentlemen Speak cocktail is inspired by the classic cocktail Manhattan, using Michter’s Small Batch Bourbon with Mancino Bianco vermouth, Bigallet China-China, and bitters.
Taking its name from the three co-owner and founder friends – Three x Co welcomes patrons to their hidden bar daily (except Sundays) from 5 pm. With limited seating, reservations are recommended.
