After a whole day outing and shopping in Genting Premium Outlet and a night of entertainment watching the Smurfts Live in Genting International Showroom, it was time to unwind with my girlfriends. We went to the newly opened trendy bar, Redtail by Zouk. Now some disclaimers, Redtail though opened by Zouk is not a dancing kind of club. Redtail is a social gaming lounge with some unique games to boot…however it is for adults.
First, let’s introduce Redtail’s mascot, Xiao Hong. I thought he was a cat…but apparently he’s a Red Panda boy. He is known to be fun, popular, sociable, adventurous and playful—matching the vibe of the place. Xiao Hong really means, small red in Chinese. The whole Redtail is like a large college living room, a really large one. It’s very cosy, very laid back. Sure, there’s loud music playing but it’s bearable.
This bar is located one escalator down from Skyavenue, so it is pretty open yet private at the same time. As in, people in the floor above can look down and be entertained with whatever you are doing. It’s a pretty big space, covering 4,289 sq ft, and is able to accommodate up to 150 guests. I think it will be great to host parties here. Oh, so we decided to check out one of the most popular games, PongConnect. I’ve heard of Beer Pong but never played one, but PongConnect is really another level. It’s a whole digital screen of table, and we played it with pingpong balls, trying to land it in the opponent’s cup. If it goes in, my opponent loses and drinks up.
If digital Pong is not what you like and you want to get more physical, then play giant Pong instead. Pingpong balls are replaced with basketballs. This one looks really challenging I might add.
Games are abundant, as there are also pool tables, giant jengas, XBox, Battle Shots, Shots and Ladders and more.
A lot of people are here for the sports though. Catch up to Live Sports, any channel, as there are multiple channels broadcasting at the same time.
Snacks are served here too!
Delicious after a round of sporty games that burned the calories.
It so happened that the good masseurs from Healing Touch Spa were there to give us a free shoulder massage. It was really relaxing and really soothed my tired muscles.
In case you wonder, Redtail is a NO SMOKING bar. Come have a healthy dose of fun with your friends.
