Madhu Menon came out of the kitchen long enough to ask:

>>I am going to abuse posting privilege here and use this list's brainpower for personal gain. :)

Excellent!  Hope we can help.

>>As some of you may know, I am in the process of relocating my restaurant and lounge.
>>I've found an excellent location for the new place

Congratulations!  ;-)  Glad things are going well.

>>Here's where I need help. I'm still wondering what to name my new cocktail lounge.

>>So do you have any ideas for a name? It needs to be simple, not pretentious,
>>and not some foreign name nobody can pronounce right.

Oy!  Tough order.  Something simple and witty to appeal to a hip and urbane educated younger crowd?  Something pronounceable by people who speak languages I don't understand?  Something that won't offend cultural or religeous morays from traditions I am unfamilar with?  And yet something instantly recognizable as fitting in with Shiok?

Hmmmmmmmmmm.  Lemme think.

I would say my best shot is .......... "Minum Lah?".

Also rans:
- Masuklah
- Masalah-Nah!
- Heatiness
- Drink-Lah
- Drinknet
- Kali's Palm
- The Grotto

Too bad it's not a sport's bar:
- Sixer's
- The Madman's Yorker
- The Rabbit Hutch

Hey Mon, it's not easy being hip from half a world away ... Or half a century!    ;-P
