Malaysians are like that, admittedly when it comes to drinking places, most often people tend to follow the hype. (ADMIT IT MALAYSIANS, we have always been the trend follower rather than the setter!) At one point it was Ecoba @ PJ trade center where people crowded together especially during Monday for it's centurion challenge. I've always felt, while it was relatively easy to draw crowds to drinking place, it is often difficult to retain the crowd. My question is, how long can this last?
It was to no doubt that the newest member admist the Damansara heights F&B scene, The HILLS @ Damansara Heights will be the next favourite hangout place for people who is out for some relaxing time with friends, be it happy hour, or happily drunk hours. Already there are several celebrations and weddings lining up in their reservation list. With the mix of good ambiance and convenience, i can forsee that this particular establishment will hit the home run and is there to stay for many years to come.
Behind the scene are the pioneer of the ever so popular Tom, Dick and Harry also known as TDH @ TTDI. Having experience already in this industry, they are now converting an old bungalow building to a 3-in-1 restaurant, whisky bar, and alfresco drinking place which looks amazing. The setup of the restaurant emphasize the use of recycled materials and 2nd hand furnitures. Who says getting them cheap necessary means looking cheap. With the careful play with the gradient of existing slope on the bungalow, and using raw trees and used glass frames, THE HILLS manage to segregate with sections into different mode altogther and its looking very chic indeed. Currently it was still at its initial set-up so only drinks and finger food was served, we braced for a hiccup in their operation given that it was only 2 days since their official launch, but there wasn't any. Servers were friendly, and efficient enough.
I'm looking forward to the opening of their restaurant, envisioning myself having a full blown 3 hours happy hour before heading upstairs for some proper food and wine.
