A CircleSquare Review
With a winning combo of hearty food, good drinks and boasting a long tradition of great music, Backyard has established itself as one of the few well-known iconic pubs in Kuala Lumpur. Although it seems to be quite hidden in the inner parts of Hartamas, Backyard Pub & Grill is easily a landmark for regulars and KLites looking for a place to unwind after a hectic day at work.
You can choose to sit outside at the patio and enjoy the night with good company and chatting over a few pints of Guinness; or join the crowd and immerse yourself with live band performances (Backyard features different bands daily) of good ol’ classic rock, jazz, blues and other popular songs of the Golden Era. Backyard offers two British Pool tables where you can square off against other regular players. We must warn you though, they’re pretty good.
With an extensive drink list, including popular single malts, Backyard’s Happy Hour is from 5pm-9pm where you’d be able to enjoy a pint starting from RM19, whereas shots start from RM14, and other drinks are readily available, ranging from mocktails, cocktails, champagne and other alcohol. While most pubs focus mainly only on drinks, Backyard has the signature Mutton Fried Rice in their arsenal, made with spicy mutton varuval (mutton cooked in dry spices) – ewe would definitely go for seconds. #punintended
Pic note: the mutton was so good, we had to order some more of the mutton varuval and it went excellently with bread as well.
This place would virtually charm you with its British-esque theme; definitely a good watering hole for you and the pals, even if you’re clad in t-shirt, shorts and sandals. Unpretentious, affordable and most importantly a fun place to be just to hang out and chill with pals. Just make sure to reserve a table if you are planning to have a good ol’ lepak night with friends.
