7 Things to do this weekend: 14 & 15 May 2022

1. Enjoy cocktails on tap at Genting Highlands

Where: T2C-17, Level 4, Resorts World Genting SkyAvenue

Popping up first at The Rabbit Hole in Changkat Bukit Bintang, Tap Tap has set its sights higher with the opening of its second outlet in YáN, at Genting Highlands’ SkyAvenue. Nine refreshing cocktails are available on tap at this outpost, including four new ones—Cha Cha Land, Kick Flip, Tuak My Life, Cocomelon Iced Tea—and two outlet-exclusive drinks, Fire Mango and Prince Harry.

“A trip up to Genting is all about having fun. With the opening of Tap Tap at YáN, there’s even more reason now to stop by SkyAvenue for a few drinks after shopping at GPO or visiting the theme park. The two cocktails exclusive to this outlet are a must-try, since you can’t get them back in KL. The Fire Mango—a concoction of vodka, mango, dry yoghurt chilli and cinnamon—has a fiery spirit that pairs amazingly with the Thai food at YáN. Prince Harry, on the other hand, is an elegant drink—in a very Instagrammable shade of light pink—that’s floral and fruity.

“Tap Tap also has a Carpe Diem set of nine cocktail shots (priced at RM98) that lets you sample every drink currently available: take your time to savour each one, or down all within 30 seconds to get your next cocktail on the house. You can also get the cocktails in takeaway cups to enjoy in your hotel room. Enjoy responsibly by staying overnight or using the Buddy Driver service by Socar, available in the Trevo app. Your designated Buddy Driver will take you back home, safely, in your own car.” — Adelina Tan, Deputy Editor
