If you love great music then Honky Tonk is for you. Best Bar in Melaka by far.

I LOVE THIS PLACE! I arrived late afternoon for a couple of quiet beers and ended up staying until around midnight. Why did I stay so long? The music was so damn good! Additionally its prime location by the riverside offers one of the best views in Melaka so I didn't feel as if I was missing out... read more

Right in the centre but with a laidback atmosphere which transports you serenely away from the hubub. Could have been cheaper for beers, but all things considered you are paying for prime location (surveying the river) and oh so cool ambience

Awesome atmosphere!! Last time I felt this kind of a place I was in Goa, India. Located right in the middle of Jonker Street, the place has a charm that is hard to replicate. the tourists queue up for a seat and the food is pretty good. My wife tried out some salad and veggie rolls. They do have some... More

We spent 2 out of 5 nights in Melaka chilling here relaxing by the river drinking Tiger. Beautiful location, looks really pretty when lit up at night. John who runs the place is very friendly and welcoming. Good atmosphere, nice to hear some decent music.

What a gem of a bar hidden behind the Hard Rock Cafe. Run by a Friendly Scotsman who has recently taken over the bar and is starting to attract a reasonable crowd. Couple of major plus points: 1. Beer is cheap 2. Fantastic view of the river 3. The live musician is top notch Can sit out on the river... More

If you're in Melaka, do yourself a favour and drop in to the Honky Tonk Haven for a few beers and a burger. The guys have created an awesome little haven for music lovers with a relaxed, cool vibe and excellent tunes. Sit by the river and watch the sun go down or come inside and soak up the music....

Admittedly, we just stopped by for a few beers so our experience is limited. The place seems to have recently changed management and it just seemed like a bit of a mess (probably as a result). But yes, not a cool place to hang out. Too much like going to someone I'm not friends with's house party. No one seemed... More
