A bar, a cafe and a restaurant. Five27 is where you can find all these combination under one rooftop. Five27 has started their business since 26th Jan 2014, which is just about one month old. It is located at Chulia Street with a comfortable environment where it is a good place for you to meet up with your friends. They serve international cuisine which include American (New), Asian Fusion, British, French, Greek, Italian, Indian, Middle Eastern, Spanish and Thai. In the Trip Advisor website, Five27 is ranked third among the many restaurants in Georgetown.

On 15th Feb, I have participated in the Blogger's Night organised by Five27. This is my third time participating in such event. This time, I am very thankful to Willy from Willy's Audio Blog for his recommendation. Thank you for your recognition.

The most attractive thing when I first step into the restaurant is the colour of the wall. The Baba and Nyonya tradition style came across my mind when I saw the colourful wall. The rattan-made decoration on the wall is actually a lamp. When the sky turn dark, the yellow light softly emits from the lamp making it feels warm and romantic.

This is the bar at the middle of the restaurant on the ground floor.

At ground floor, to the left is a formal style dining area. There is a long table and it is suitable for a family to dine in together. We, of 10 bloggers, were having our international style dinner at this long table on that night.

To the right is a casual style dining area. The upper part of the yellow wall is fully decorated with various pictures while the lower part is decorated with the bricks.

This is the upper floor of Five27. The upper floor uses turquoise and magenta as their theme colour. The middle part of  the upper floor has a big square hole and it is just right above the ground floor bar.

If you feel that the music on the upper floor is too loud, you can always enjoy your night at the ground floor bar. The same music will be played at the ground floor bar but with a smaller volume.

If you are not use to the bar life, don't worry, Five27 has prepared a more private space for you. The environment here is pretty comfortable. It is a good idea to enjoy yourself with a book and cocktail to get rid of the tiredness that has been built up from the day.

The person in charge, Chona greet us with this fruit punch while introducing Five27 to us. The fruit punch doesn't taste too sweet and the flavor wasn't too strong too. It is definitely best to quench one's thirst.

Beer : House Sangria (Red) - RM16

Then, the waitress started serving us with Sangria. Normally, I do not drink alcoholic drinks because I get drunk easily. Though I do not drink much (in fact I dislike the smell of alcohol) but this Sangria just taste nice to me. One glass of Sangria costs RM16, half litre costs RM45 and one litre costs RM75.
