Eastern & Oriental's Group Straits Quay was opened to public in November 2010. This glamorous retail marina shopping complex is located to the north of Georgetown, in the reclaimed land area Seri Tanjung Pinang. Straits Quay is not a huge shopping mall. It only has two floors and focus lies on having a good time instead of endless rows of shops. There are many nice restaurants and bars to choose from, and over time more will open to public. There are quite a few nightlife establishments; it explains why the mall is opened until 1am daily (it opens at 10am in the morning).
