    Nightspot in KL: From Dusk till Dawn

    by julietkilledme Written Jan 14, 2005

    There are a few clubbing area within the city or 45mins drive away from the city. Don't forget to visit Jalan Ramli if you are looking into club hopping or simply just hanging out at cafe with your friends while doing some people watching. Its a place where youngsters & yuppies would hangout. My friends & I would usually arrange to meet up at KL since we are coming from different States & country for some partying.

    Bangsar (half hour away from city) is a little clubbing town of its own, with pubs & clubs that plays different genre of music with cafes & eatery everywhere as they spread out throughout the town block by block. So take your take to browse around before deciding on where to club or simply just hop from one place to another then!

    Dress Code: There really isn't any particular dress code in all these area. So just go... ermmm perhaps leave your slippers in your hotel room instead then.

    The Beach Club: Drinking Malaysia dry

    by neilward Updated Dec 29, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    An excellent drinking hole with good music ,the only problem we had (on both visits,12 months apart) was getting served at the bar,not enough staff for the customers drinking there.
    Approx 18 ringits for entry but 1 free drink with that.Many locals seem to drink there and nationalities from all over the world seem to congregate on the dance floor.On my first visit there in 2002 the football world cup was on, in Japan and South Korea ,we spent of the night drinking and partying with some Brazilians and trying to samba,not easy with a couple of gallons of beer inside you...I blamed the jet-lag !!!!!

    Dress Code: No dress code ,
    but i wear 'book'em Danno' shirts anyway !!!!

    27 beers and a whisky and coke for Mark please !!

    Night Lifes in KL...

    by coceng Updated Sep 13, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    KL has a vibrant night life but it's not without some prohibitions.
    Discos, pubs & bars must close before 2 am to prevent the drunk driving. I mean if those drivers want to die, they could do before 2 am, easy to clean the mess.
    By 3 am, people just want to crawl up to bed & be in heaven (sleep).
    Drunk driving is a serious problem here. I just have to be blunt about it.
    Again & again, if you want to drive, don't ever drink alcohol !

    Chintown and Bukit Bentang Road: Live performance, shopping and eating go together

    by Faiza-Ifrah Written Sep 10, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bukit Bentang Road is itself a great nightlife spot. You can shop in the 6 retail malls in the neighborhood or in various shops. When you get tired, sit at roadside cafes in front of either BB Plaza or Plaza Low Yatt, have coffee, snacks and listen to the live musical performance of the bands.

    If you are walking from top of the street (i.e. Bukit Bentang Road) from say Federal Hotel towards BB Plaza, then take left at first road intersection. The first street parallel to Bukit Bentang Road appears a bit rundown, but remains awake almost throughout the night. Street vendors sell food and fruites that people consume in abundance. you can sit by a roadside vendor, buy doorian D24 (the best quality), have it cut professionally and go for the delicious inside.

    Another night time adventure would be to do shopping in Chinatown. During the day, it can be hot there. There is a foodcourt with lots of food outlets. After shopping, have dinner there and watch people and street vendors.

    Dress Code: You can dress the way you want. Ahem I mean moderately.

    BB road at dusk.

    The night in the forest is creepy... but it could be also charming... strange sounds in the silence will take you away from the civilization...
    This animal came out from the jungle everynight to eat fruit with us... hehehe... it was a puppy... nice and friendly (even too friendly...!)... we called it Fox... :)

    (NOTE: the animal coming out from the jungle, is the one without t-shirt on !!!)

    Rasta Bar: A Great Night Out - Bandar Utama

    by keeweechic Written Dec 17, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is no shortage of nightlife in K.L. There are night clubs and karaoke bars, discos... whatever you want. I was taken to 2 in one night right in KL but I can't remember their names, one I didn't like anyway. One great night I did have with my colleagues was out somewhere near Bandar Utama. I believe the place was call 'Rasta' (photo). It was just in a small block of shop houses but such a great band and a great 'local' night.
