Mo Bar is an upmarket hotel bar located in the refurbished Mandarin Oriental. It’s all very sleek and sophisticated and has drink prices to match.
Nearby are the housing tenements at Kebon Kacang. Even so, it’s not often that members of the proletariat manage to worm their way in to this exclusive joint. “Music, cocktails and all the right people” is the message on its website. Yeah it’s quite clear who’s welcome – and who is not.
Yet irony has worked its unpredictable ways yet again and the bar’s ideal of attracting the “right sort of people” has backfired somewhat. This is because the bar is generally fairly quiet except during its legendary ladies nights (Tuesdays), occasions when large numbers of both wanton women and male predators are drawn in equal measure!
