Jann, Four Points Sheraton Chinatown KL

The Petaling Street / Chinatown area is booming with foreign and local tourists, drawn by the mushrooming of new, quaint F&B outlets, super Instagram-able graffiti and design, and most of all - bars of all shapes and sizes.

Enter newest kid on the block, Jann. A cocktail bar that's located on the 7th floor of the newly opened Four Points by Sheraton Kuala Lumpur, Chinatown.

Jann, named after the daughter of the family that owns the hotel, features signature drinks inspired by the flavours and ingredients from Petaling Street.

Headed by Lawson (previously of The Deceased) and assisted by Chris (previously from Three X Co), these two boys creatively put together a list of 12 signature cocktails. They would, as much as possible, even purchase the ingredients from Petaling Street in their bid to support the small businesses that make up the heritage of area.

Asam Laksa (RM45) - A margarita twist named after the laksa stall located along Jalan Hang Lekir (Madras Lane).
Aged tequila, ginger flower, asam keping, orange, calamansi.

Bak Kwa (RM45)  actually has bakwa from Oloiya.. who actually started off selling orange juice.
A lighter version of a Screwdriver, but with grand marnier, lemon and tea foam.

Great Master Kui (RM40) is meant to take you to Sin Sze Ya temple.
(Tea-infused gin, aperol, elderflower liqueur, grapefruit, lemon)

Wanna guess why this is called Kapitan Yap (hint: hat)?
This interesting take to the whisky sour is made with jackfruit-infused Jack Daniel's.

Tau Foo Fah (RM40) is made with Tau foo fah from the infamous Jalan Petaling Tau Foo Fah stall, spiked with dark rum.

The Tailor - paying homage to the century-old fashioned tailor shop along Jalan Sultan.
This Old Fashioned is twisted with Jack Daniel's that's infused with bonito.

But like all freshly opened establishments, we were told that the drinks menu will continue to be tweaked.

Of course they have other items on the menu as well, spirits (as it's part of the Mariott group, you can expect the back of the bar to be dominated by  popular Pernod Ricard brands), beer on tap (which we need to find our more about), wine.... and of course bar snacks.

The bar itself is a marriage of old and new, east and west. As you enter, it's hard to miss the horse-shoe shaped open-concept bar.  And with an open air balcony with a view of the KL skyline.

Can't wait to check it out again once they have settled in.
