Altogether we spent three nights in BSB and, well, we were a little bored as to what to do in the evenings. We ate at the same food court place called Taman Selera, which was very good, and tried to make a night of it by drinking our juices very slowly. We did hit the downtown area in search of some kind of action but to no avail, even after asking a young chap if there were any discos nearby as we knew there wouldn't be any bars. Nothing’s really open after 9.30pm apart from the De Royalle Cafe where we watched a football match on TV whilst sitting outside on the street. Apart from this the only other thing we found to do at night was to take some photos of the Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque which is lit up nicely at night to look even better than it does during the day. Don't expect BSB to be a party-animal type of place at night - it simply isn't even during the day.
Ever since they banned some "anti-Muslim" activities in Brunei, most expatriates (and locals) would cross the border to Limbang or Miri for some nightlife. So, it gets pretty quiet in BSB, especially on weekends. You can probably go to the "pasar malam" or night market for some local food & look at stuff on sale by locals. There is one on an empty lot near Sheraton Utama building.
This market is open in the evenings. It's got an amazing array of foods to try (all of them cheap and delicious) and there are tables to sit at and eat. Surrounded by strands of lights and music you can meet all kinds of people here.
