Looking for some good spots to chill with your homies and listen to some home-grown artists spin up some magic? Here are 5 great spaces you should check out!

China House

Where would you be able to find a compound of 3 heritage buildings, linked by an open air courtyard and converted into 14 spaces comprising shops, cafes, restaurant, galleries, live music and a bakery all in one space? China House Penang, that’s where!

They also promote lots of local acts, be it indie bands, rock bands, cover bands, metal, and good ol’ fashioned pop! You name it and you’ll find it there.

There might be a cover charge for certain shows that would range between RM15-RM40 so keep an eye out for that bit. But hey, if you’d pay 400 ringgit for a Bruno Mars concert, what’s 40 bucks for a great local band in a more intimate location?

Once home to one of the earliest gold jewellers in Penang, this 4-storey tall building is located at Campbell Street with the ground floor of the building turned into a cafe and bar.

You might wanna check out the Jom Kopitiam performances and the occasional Say It Like You Mean It activities that are hosted at the venue.

It’s also a great place to take a few insta-worthy shots, or just chill in the hammock.

The rustic, ancient interior of this place is filled with antics from the good old days. To keep with the theme, even the furniture is built from scratch. Open mic sessions are held almost every night for artsy-fartsy folks who need a platform to experiment with. Furthermore, it’s big enough and yet quaint in size to accommodate about 40 people standing.
