The Standard Chartered Bank Building (GPS: 5.41859, 100.34328) on Beach Street is a stout four-storey structure in British Palladian style.

The Chartered bank of India, China and Australia arrived on Penang shores in 1875, making it the oldest bank branch in Malaysia. It is one of the two British exchange banks in this region; the other being the Hong Kong & Shanghai Bank directly on the opposite side of the road. The present building was completed in 1930, and is houses the bank today. The building displays a combination of elements drawn from the Palladian, Classical and Art Deco architectural styles.
