Not many other club options for late night, so it’s where most people go. Go more than once and you’ll start to recognize people. Decent drink prices and variation of music/ djs.More

We went there one evening for drinks, and we ended up eating there as well; mainly small dishes, hummus, taboulé, eggplant, guacamole, garlic prawns. All dishes well prepared and tasty. Well stocked bar with good cocktails. Penthouse, as the name says, is a bar and...restaurant on the top floor of a small building (not very high, 8th floor). There is seating either inside or outside. Unfortunately there is not much of a view. From one corner of the rooftop you can see the Schwedagon pagoda in the distance. There is music, a bit dj style, and a crowd of mainly young people, with a good atmosphere. Overall good experience.More

This place could not decide whether it is a bar, a club, a lounge or a fine dining restaurant. The food is average and pricey. It tries to pass as a fine dining restaurant but disappointing. Cocktails are reasonably priced but not impressive. Someone at...the bar has been improvising. There is the DJ some nights playing electronic music and the place turns into a club. These nights, the visitors' profile change a bit and the place is filled with drunken people from all around the world, from every age. Some of these people will suddenly come to your table trying to talk to your lady friend whom you had invited for a drink and a nice conversation. On one of these nights, I approached the bar inside to order a drink and one of the foreigner guests through the drunken crowd tried to ask from me his bill with frustration. He was more frustrated to learn that I don't work there but maybe because waiters were not to be seen around. It is a good place for me to have a few beers in the evening at sunset time but I'm not a fan for the other aspects of the place. Yet, having written this review, I visited the place several times and will go again in the future Because not many places for the expats to go. You end up at the same place sooner or later. I'm sure it must be not easy to run a place like this with this different aspects such as fine dining, club, pub, lounge are necessary to keep the business going. But at the end anything sells in Yangon because no where else to go.More

The food is incredibly bad. They want you to pay $10-15 for tiny portions or food you could make in your college days with a microwave and a hot plate. Do NOT order food here under any conditions. But the drinks, DJ music, and the...dancing scene are very good, particularly for an international crowd. The view of the Shwedagon Pagoda is very good. Go for these reasons.More

A bit hard to find as there’s no sign on the building. On the 8th floor, beautiful view. Great menu and selection. They have an inside dining room with A/C or a beautiful outside patio with a very nice view. Plenty of different types of...food to choose from as well as a full selection of wines. The staff are very friendly and attentive. Great place. I had dinner there two evenings in a row. They also have shisha. Very friendly atmosphere. Thanks Khaled!More

The place is nice. Sky View. If you like to sit outside, there are places to sit outside and if you like to sit inside also there is spacious venue inside. I went there on Thursday night so there was no music or event hence...it was good to sit and chit chat. The menu is pricey and very less option to choose for food. It's good for occasional but not for usual drinking venue. Toilets are a bit old style and very tight. Waiting staff are attentive and very casual. Overall it was good experience and had a good time. Just need more signage to show the ways as for the first time customers, you will not able to find the way up if there is no one at the door to tell you where to go.More

Was there for dinner with family. It was Sat night, mostly expat crowd. It will be like a club on weekend after 8 or 9 if that is your vibe. Their food definitely look bigger in the menu, the taste nothing out of the ordinary....The plus side are their waiting staff, genuine folks. Will i visit again? May be , on someone 's treat. lolMore
