The Library's fourth watering hole, Toshokan, is a Japanese-themed venue at First Subang Mall. To recap: the original Library at [email protected] seems Western-influenced, its Avenue K outpost is French, while the Puchong one is Chinese.
The influence of the Land of the Rising Sun is embedded in the decor, not the drinks. Frangelico Caipirinha (frangelico, lime wedges, sugar, cranberry juice) & Hpnotiq Mojito (sagatiba pura, hpnotiq, mint leaves, lime wedges, soda, sugar).
Archer's Peach Schnapps & Bailey's. The lighting makes it all yellow (cue Coldplay).
Business is booming, like every other Library, Overtime & their fellow bar businesses that have spread throughout the Klang Valley.
P.S. We're still a little let down by First Subang Mall though. Guess we were hoping for something with more original outlets, instead of mainly offshoots from outlets elsewhere (Coffee Chemistry, Wong Kok, Edo Ichi, Chatime, Austin Chase, etc).
