Each of these on this list has been carefully selected based on factors such as atmosphere, drinks selection, and overall experience. So, whether you're in the mood for a classic cocktail or a unique craft beer, we've got you covered. Cheers!

#1 Gin Bar By JWC

Calling all Gin lovers, it’s Gin O’ Clock! Gin Bar by JWC, Johor Bahru’s first ever gin bar has to be a stop on your drinks list at JB. This hidden bar has a unique aesthetic, embracing a heavily neon-themed, retro-Chinese aesthetic reminiscent of the 1960s and 1970s. Naturally, gin-based cocktails, each crafted by the bartenders, are the staples here. Gin Bar By JWC serves a variety of gin bottles in addition to the gin and tonic in its purest form, which is served in double-shot goblets with ice and garnished with sour fruits and spices.

#2 SKY 26, Holiday Villa Johor Bahru

If you’re looking to have drinks with a beautiful view, then Sky 26 is the right bar for you. It is the only bar in the city with unmatched views of JB, and it is situated on the top level of the Holiday Villa Johor Bahru hotel.

On specific days, a DJ will be spinning sets as well, so be ready to party. Beverages here are slightly pricier than at other pubs on the ground floor, but the view will be worth it.

The premier entertainment and social venue Sky 26 is located on the 26th floor of Holiday Villa and seeks to provide guests with a one-of-a-kind experience.

Even better, you may sing your heart out here in their opulent KTV hall, which is 98 metres above ground.


Slake your thirst with one of the many delicious wines and alcoholic drinks available. Japanese food and some Asian fusion dishes, like Kaibashira Goma Pasta and Goma Soft Shell Crab Cold Soba, make up the cuisine.

#3 Mulligan's Pub & Bistro

Mulligan's Pub & Bistro is a lot more noticeable than hidden pubs due to its incredibly vivid blue and yellow facade.

Even in Southeast Asia, the Irish excel at it. You'd think you were back in Dublin with the large pints, cottage pies, potato and leek soup, and a traditional pool table.

But this is true, and the weather is also fantastic. The community fabric at this place is made up of events and activities.

This Irish-style pub offers traditional beer and stout on tap along with a substantial food selection that will satisfy your appetite without leaving you wanting more.

Consider robust dishes that pair nicely with beer, such as potato and leek soup. The kind of no-frills bar you'd want to visit to unwind with a pint is Mulligan's Pub & Bistro.
