Reservations: 03-4813 7247

Arthur’s Storehouse is inspired by the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin, Ireland and is Guinness Malaysia’s first flagship outlet.

While the Irish stout is known worldwide, cocktails using Guinness are a rare find.

Try the Guinnesstini, a mix of vodka, Kahlua, Guinness Foreign Extra Stout, espresso and ice cream, while Guinness Black Velvet made of Guinness and prosecco is also a good choice.

For a stronger drink, opt for the Guinness Whitmore made of bourbon, Guinness, sugar syrup and bitters while St James Gate is a mix of Irish whiskey, coconut milk, Guinness and nutmeg or cinnamon.

With two scoops of vanilla ice-cream, the Guinness Milkshake is more of a dessert while the Guinness Mary is a twist on the classic, complete with tomato and lime juice, Guinness, vodka and tabasco sauce.

Guests can also dig into delectable Guinness-infused dishes and check out items at its merchandise store.
