Description: COOLEST restaurant bar in town! Located right in the heart of the Historical Melaka which has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site makes Bucket Bar so magical and memorable for all travelers. After a day of touring the amazing city, it is time to see the beautiful people get together who loves and needs music with an ice cold beer in hand in the cosy and air-conditioned bar or sit outdoors. Hangout with a your buddies or come meet new fellow travelers! For the gastronomically adventurous, try some of our fantastic local Nyonya and Chinese food or even some spicy Portuguese and Spanish tapas! Shoot some pool or listen to live music on Fridays and Saturdays! If you have not been to Bucket Bar Melaka, you have not seen Melaka.

Looked all over for this place. Nobody had heard the name? Just thought I would let people know. If I missed this place then I apologies but must have been hidden from view.

The ambience was really good with nice music. The plus point was the friendly owner, very chatty and cool guy. We drank quite a bit, carlsberg.... More
