Beach Club Café, Kuala Lumpur
Some ppl tells me that it's more of a pick-up joint these days...have not been there for a very long time now. They use to play music from the 80's and then it slowly changes to house / techno later in the nite...
Wear a white top and see what happends ! ;-)
I went out walking in KL one night , hope to catch up with some night life. Anyway I found myself in Jalan P Ramlee and there was quiet a few places that look like it was happening. Anyway I saw the Beach club looked all packed and rocking and descided to check it out. The music there is hip hop and I won`t forget the shark swimming in the tank there next to the dance floor which was kinda neat. The funny thing I saw these older Australian men with some beautiful young ladies. I thought these guys knew there way when it came to charming ladies until I had my own encouter with these Filipina ladies acting all friendly and hoping you pay them to have sex with them. Ok now I see what was happening here , why all those older men had all these young women. Other than that its not a bad place , yet I found drinks to be expensive. I notice alot of Foreigners hanging out here.
Dress Code: Come as you are.
This is a great little club with live music and a good disco and dance floor and a big reputation.
The music can be a little old Skool to start with and a little bit too much R & B for my liking but it did improve as the night went on and there certainly was plenty to look at!
Lots of Philo, Thai and Indonesian ladies were quite keen to say hi to me while i was there!
They have tanks above the bar with miniature sharks and fish and a grass thatched roof to give a real beach bar feel.
If you get a cab there the driver will probably chuckle and say something like "Oh you want to look for lady" Mine did.
Dress Code: Anything you like although there seems to be business people and ex-pats there that dress respectable.
Long trousers or jeans for the guys.
A famous place, crazy after midnight. NOT FOR FAMILY
Great music (live + DJ's) but too high, expensive.
Don't think (like me!), that the nice friendly ladies interests are based only your sex appeal or cultural exchanges! Speaking is difficult (music) and some contacts could be made through cell phone. A lot of girls (Thai, Vietnam, Philippines) very nice and friendly, fair, some are classy. No pb saying no. Some tourists are not so fair.
Dansing is difficult (too much peoples !). Closed from beachclub, in the street, some boy/girls (I'm not sure !)
Dress Code: Casual
It is the current hippest spot to be seen at. And the nght we were there, it was a Tuesday and still seemed like it was a full house.
They play the current rock/pop hits as well as 90's music.
It is just a 5 minute walk from the Menara KL.
Dress Code: Seemed to me like there wasn't any strict dress code enforced, so smart casual should do.
Chances are, should you ask where is a popular nightspot in KL, 9 out of 10 times, a local will say "the Beach Club!". Currently THE most popular nightspot in KL, the Beach Club is constantly packed with up & coming yuppies, teen wanabees, expatriates and street-walkers. Situated at along Jalan P Ramlee, it is more innocent looking & quiet during the day time. Following the theme, the exterior of the building is predominantly wood & dried grass. Inside, a tank with swimming sharks looks over the bar and the dance floor. If you're a solo guy, don't be surprised when you get approached by girls who are "into you". If you like, better have your $$ ready. The music, in my opinion, is so-so and the socialising that goes on in the club is the main activity & attraction here
One of the must go club if you ever step foot in Kuala Lumpur,Malaysia..it's right in middle of the city on popular tourist area..very close to Petronas Twin Tower..world tallest building..
Open 7 days a week with non stop crowd and fun...best to go during weekdays ..Sunday-Thursday.....weekend is impossible to move around......mixture of all ethnic and nationalities..locals,tourist,expat,'working girls'.....
Dress Code: Come as you are..
Dress as you wish but avoid looking like slob..if you want to get some attention around..
I do not reckon Beach Club as the best place to hang out. Its not classy at all and it all spoilt because of those prostitutes. I suggest you could go to 7atenine at The Ascott, or Sky Bar at Traders Hotel, or Luna Bar. If you're gay, you could try out Frangipani, I just love the place everyone is so friendly esp when you're celebrating your birthday (I was so wasted people kept buying me champagne and stuff). Or you can try Hard Rock Cafe, or Borneo at Sunway. They have few different bars an Jalan Doraisamy, but mostly college students will go there. Where else? You could try out Deluxe and Ampang Park (well thats my favourite place to hang out). But its expensive, if you could pay rm2000 with great service, this is the place you should go. Its a karaoke, with private/VIP rooms which can accomodate up to 20 people for the biggest room. You can bring your cd collection, and turn it into a private party/club. You can put youtr cellphone and drinks everywhere, dont worry, the waitor/waitress will take care of it for you.
Dress Code: Luna Bar/Sky bar : no jeans, no slippers
The rest : casual, no slippers
Have heard a lot about this place and ventured there after the Thai Club (across the road) could only manage to sell hot beers. Pricey to get in RM 40 and with one complimentary drink...the beer is their choice and tastes like the proverbial. Place is full of whores and they pester you. The only people hanging out here are old men and fools who think it is cool to have prostitutes all over them. Over the top on prices and boring. Take your money elsewhere - the Thai Club was only RM 18 to get in with the complimentary drink and you can choose your beer. I went back there and bought a bucket of Tiger and waited until they cooled down in the ice. Didnt even wait to finish the rubbish which was mandatory at the Beach Club. Yes there are hookers at the Thai Club but if you tell them you are not interested they move on quickly. Many bars and eateries next to the Sheraton Hotel, Asian Heritage Walk. This little street is better value for your money and better selection. I did enjoy Mojo's there and I have been told the Sunday Beer Terrace is also very good.
Dress Code: Not at the Beach Club only money is the dress of the day and they dont care how they lie and cheat to get that from you.
A place to go if you are not comfortable hanging out with locals and want to pick up prostitutes (usually from the phillipines). If you're there, walk down the road...there are plently of other spots where you can go in and enjoy while mixing with the local crowd.
Beach Club is located right in the centre of KL , very busy and laud hot place. Its worth coming but after some minutes you might feel a little bit aqward with all foreigners hanging out ( not only ) with as Malay people say- Philipines girls. Besides it is increadibly hot and humid in there.
We dont have to go far away from Beach club to find a fantastic atmosphere with residences dancing everywhere where is possible!! That place is just opposite beach club , and its called Thai club! I recommend in 100% you will have fun there!
Dress Code: no dress code
While there are many places to go at night, your first stop must be here. A varied bunch (loads) of people having a good time. Music wise, depending on the master DJ which has no fixed preference
Dress Code: NO shorts please
after living abroad(china) for 8 years and my first time back to malaysia i went to kl for holidays,day times we went for sight seeing and had lots of my favaourite foods(yummyyyyy).what bout nite? where shall we go?

Not everyone liked this place ´cause of "all the tourists" but for me meeting some europeans was not so unpleasant. Cheap drinks once You get in.
I really liked the atmosphere and the live bands.
Watch out for too friendly local girls - they are not interested of your looks ;)
Dress Code: No matter what you wear.
I went to the Beach Club Cafe last night and wasn't impressed. As of right now (25th November 2006) the entrance fee is 35 MYR (45 MYR = 10 Euro right now) which gets you one beer. Then the price of Carlsberg which they sell in botles is 21 MYR which isn't too bad considering this city is a bit exphensive anyway.
The main problem here is the hookers and pimps - there are lots of hookers in the bars and dozens of pimps surrounding the outside waiting for customers to come out.
It was a friday night when I went and it seems to be full of city types (bank workers etc) drinking and sharing around full bottles of vodka - not for the average tourist exploring the city.
From what I have seen all of the other bars in this area are pretty much the same - they close at 3am.
A much better drink can be had at one of the Finnigans Irish Pubs in the city - there's four of them now - good pint of Guinness available as well even though it's a bit expensive.
Dress Code: You can wear anything from what I saw.
