Island Country Club and Island Pub & Lounge in Miri

island club

I went to Island after dinner at Shiki with Kim and Mark for a couple of drinks. We were planning to head over to a Middle Eastern joint for shisha but the place was closed so we ended up at Island Country Club while waiting for Darren to join us.

It turns out the Island is comprised of two isles (?) – one is the more upscale Island Country Club where we were and the other is the more chilled out Island Pub & Lounge (also called Island Wine & Cocktail) where Darren was.

The interior of Island Country Club is more upmarket with a small bar seating area and more comfortable tables and chairs.

There is also an al fresco seating area running the entire length of the two Island clubs.

The drinks menu is similar in the two Island clubs – the drinks are made at the larger bar at Island Pub & Lounge and sent over through a slot in the wall to Island Country Club.

The prices are the same too, so it’s a matter of preference as to the ambiance of the two different watering holes.

island pool

There is a pool table at Island Country Club, while Island Pub & Lounge has more TV sets playing sports channels.

I lost my digital camera that very same night and I remembered going there again with Faye, LV and her husband just to get photos of the very same drinks we ordered that day. I know, it’s being obsessive, but I just couldn’t get over losing the photos. :p

dirty pussy

This is Licking Dirty Pussy (RM 15) – a shooter that I had the first night with Kim, Mark and Darren that I had before lounging with a Margarita and then nursing a Kilkenny.

I did the exact same thing the last night, but without the Kilkenny coz Darren already got a photo of me with that. ;)

island margarita deluxe

I had the Island Margarita Deluxe (RM 18) – the strongest Margarita on their menu. It seems that the Margarita is the signature drink of Island Club – it was what the waitress recommended and they have three featured versions of the frozen concoction.

island margarita blue

I insisted that Faye ordered the Island Blue Curacao Margarita (RM 18) that Kim had the first night. I wanted to take a photo of the drink for consistency. :)

island margarita mango

LV went with the Island Mango Margarita (RM 18). The margaritas at Island are all of the frozen variety.

island club redux

This is from the second time I patronized Island. The first time was with Kim, Mark and Darren during the Miri bloggers meet and the very night I lost my digicam. This reenactment is brought to you by my new Sony T70 instead of my missing Sony T2.

This is me with Kim on the first night I came to Miri.

We hooked up with Darren too, which is a really cool guy in real life.

This is another shot of me and the gorgeous Kim – she’s just so photogenic that I have to put up her photos. :)

  3. bubble7866: Hmm…that’s really sad. What type of cancer did she die of? There’s always a lot of people passing on due to cancer nowadays.
    Kim: It’s lost for good. Mary has a shop in Miri though, so I hope my cell phone turns up there if the person who took it sells it off. At least then I can make sure I won’t be the next Edison Chen. Got a lot of incriminating photos inside, you know…
    Seriously, your hospitality is top grade. International class even. ;)
    Really enjoyed my stay in Miri, thanks to you.
    Hmm…I didn’t get much sleep so I managed to squeeze a lot of things into my itenerary. Sacrifices. Ran up a huge sleep debt.
