Touted as "the most elusive of George Town's speakeasies" by Lonely Planet, Backdoor Bodega is an overpriced "pin shop" that boasts over 40 signature cocktails on its menu — each drink served free with a purchase of a cute lapel pin. Opened discreetly with zero fanfare in November 2016, this owner-operated speakeasy with a small team of self-taught bartenders has since been recognised as one of Penang’s top cocktail bars by The Bar Awards, clinching the Bartender of the Year (Penang) award in 2019.
