There's a new bar or urban hip club as per written on the signage in Sri Hartamas, just next to Souled Out. A bunch of us were invited for Eccentric Bar in Sri Hartamas for it's grand launch a month back. It wasn't a really big affair, as the owners were adamant to keep the exclusiveness of the bar.

The location of Eccentric is just 2 doors away from Souled Out, one of the largest cafe in the vicinity, and probably would be Eccentric Bar's largest competitor. Anyway, we were greeted by the owner and his wife before the launch. This bar would be one of his first ventures into the food and beverages industry, and is meant for patrons to just unwind and chill after a long day at work.

The exterior and interior of Eccentric Urban Hip Club has the typical bar decor, with a laid back low light environment. The bar serves up a myriad of alcoholic beverages, but for this grand opening, we were served with some food and free flow of beer. Check out below on Eccentric's interior as well as the "finger" food we were provided with.

So there we were just hanging out listening to this band perform while catching up with each other. A couple of bloggers were invited as well, which made the night much better. The crowd started coming in by 8pm, mostly invited guests of the owner. There was even a short ribbon cutting ceremony to signify the grand launching of Eccentric Urban Hip Club.

As the night wears on, we realized this bar's environment was catered more towards the chilling out crowd rather than the swaying to the music crowd. The moment the free flow ended, which was rather early at 9pm, the mood of the crowd quickly wore off. Nevertheless, I managed to snap some photos with a few of the bloggers who attended this short launching event. I must say it's good to catch up with them over some beers, music and food.

One unique thing about the decor of Eccentric Bar was the walls. They have this end to end wall, with words which any customers can jot down their names. We have words like "unusual", "bizzare", "erratic", and "genius" just to name a few. I took the chance to leave my mark there, as did everyone else.

So there you have it, a spanking new bar opened in the vicinity of Sri Hartamas. It's a rather cozy bar which focuses on making sure you can relax and unwind over some drinks. As this was the owner's first venture in the food and beverage business, be prepared for some minor kinks to be ironed out soon enough.
