Bar United Welcomes the Year of the Ox with Lunar New Year Promos!
It’s Malaysia’s coolest, hippest virtual playground for drinking, eating, and… socialising? That’s right, it’s all virtual, it’s all SOP-compliant, and it’s a great initiative bringing together some of KL’s most popular cocktail bars and kitchens to add a fun twist to the “new normal” we’ve all been enduring. And for a limited time, there are some great promotions and exciting prize giveaways to make things even more fun!
To kick off the Year of the Metal Ox, Bar United held a pair of popular livestreamed events earlier in February, attended virtually by hundreds of enthusiasts. The first event welcomed Dato’ Joey Yap to the Bar-Live stage. As the world’s #1 authority in Feng Shui and Chinese Metaphysics, he shared his Five Strategies to Create More Income in 2021 as well as telling guests how they could take control of their Metal Ox year the right way!
Hot on the heels of this livestream, celebrity chefs Sherson Lian and Johnny Fua of Kitchen Mafia brought their culinary expertise to Bar-Live with a Gastro Live Experience that taught viewers how to prepare their take on two Chinese New Year staple dishes. Chef Sherson and Chef Johnny walked all the attendees through the steps of preparing their Beet & Berry House Cured Salmon Yee Sang and the 8 Treasures Stuffed Chicken. These delights, along with a great range of other mouthwatering treats, are available from Kitchen Mafia on the Bar-Tails shopping zone in Bar United’s virtual space!
And though these livestream events have passed, there are still some great CNY offers that will run right through till the end of February.
