Inspired by Chinese superstitions of life after death, the entrance to the eerie watering hole is just like their concept of the afterworld – there, but unnoticeable to the untrained eye. Located in a rundown building with no signage at all, a password is needed to enter, and what will greet you behind the door is a long stairway smeared in “blood”.

Talismans, altars, and old-school Chinese medicine cabinets add to the feel of the underworld, but The Deceased is a bar, and the highlight is undoubtedly their cocktails!

Lots of props are used to decorate their wittily-named concoctions, including Chinese opera masks, incense sticks, traditional wooden slippers, and severed hands.

The ingredients are also laden with Chinese influences, consisting of rice wine, red dates, kumquat, and oolong tea, and each drink is only priced at around RM35 (approximately SGD $12).

With Kuala Lumpur being just an hour’s flight away from Singapore, it’s time to consider it as your next weekend getaway destination! Just make sure to have a reservation, which must be made via direct message on their Facebook page – they’ll call you back to confirm your booking and give you your password!
