A Nordic experience


Situated in sunny Straits Quay in Penang, that northern European region covering Scandinavia, Finland and Iceland was the last thing that came to mind in the warm tropical setting. Blue skies, private yacht marina and the gentle rise and fall of the sea provide a luxurious backdrop to the heritage facade of the Straits Quay shopping and dining complex that houses Five27.

Red, white and blue lounges at the dockside invite you to hang out and watch the boats at the quay. A neutral base of grey floors, cream curtains and fawn hued chairs is brightened with splashes of colour on the cushions, tablecloths and bright wall murals.
