Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur
I love Bukit Bintang at night very live with lots of things to do, lots of restaurants, coffee shops, street painters and street performers.
If you are bored at night and have nothing to do just go for a stroll in Bukit Bintang it's very safe at night even for solo female traveler.
KL at night is bustling with activity.the area around petronas and the main shopping arcades are busy till 9pm afetr which itstarts shutting down.the chinatown market too shuts down by 10pm.
but the innumerable multiplexes offer late night shows.we watched casino royale at times square 10th floor.the show got over by 2am and we came back safely to our shangri la hotel by 2.30am.
other night spots like hard rock cagfe bustle late into the night.
Dress Code: casual.we did not have any women members so obviously felt safe as it was an all guys gang.
Located at the ground floor of Fahrenheit88 Bukit Bintang, Celsius is one of a kind Restaurant + Bar. The place is more for relaxing than anything else and since the bar area is open air, you can bet that it’s never going to get stuffy here. There’s a good selection of food, and a list of drinks to make the Germans wobble.
There’s the house special that we think is definitely worth a try: Crazy Sins, a combination of seven cocktails all poured at once. Don’t worry it comes in seven different glasses so you can pace yourself when you try it. While we wait for its official opening, the pole has already attracted our attention and why wouldn’t it? It’s the only one we know that has a built in shower for those dirty moments.
Tastebuds craving for good food in KL area? Try Celsius KL. Not kidding – food’s yummilicious and the service was top notch!
Bukit Bintang is undoubtedly the tourist precinct in KL. It's not all bad though, as instead of constant touts and rude behavior, there is instead an endless array of outdoor eateries - a hawker's delight. Every cuisine is possible, from an Iraqi hookah cafe/restaurant, to Thai and Mexican food stands. The hustlers and dealers are present too, pushing everything from hookers to heroin. I opt for neither this time around, but agree to a full body massage (nothing suss).
Dress Code: Anything you want, although some bars may be snooty about who they let in, shorts are almost always ok.

Good place to hang out, have a few beers, listen to music and watch soccer matches in the bars that have big projection screens on what used to be a red light district but is now transformed to be a real cool stretch of road to party at (like Heritage Row).
Dress Code: Casual.
Shoping, shoping ... Daily and night.
A lot of various shoping centers, mobile phones and ... massages.
A good Chinese massage in Bukit Bintang, closed from MacDonald (crossing with Jalan Ismail), first floor (booking in the street). 60RM/Hour
Caution: traditional chinese massages are NOT relax and cool.
Last stop for the night, we went to try an Egyptian shisha (sheesha?) at Lecka Lecka on Bukit Bintang. A surprising experience, especially for a couple of non smokers but our guide was always finding us new experiences. It was also the first time I visited Lecka Lecka and didn’t eat their gelato. Technically it is still smoking but without the harshness associated with cigarettes. The herbal/fruit mixture is at the top of the pipe which is covered with foil. Then hot coals are placed on top of the foil. After a minute or two, we were able to draw on the pipe which takes the smoke through the water in the base and this is supposedly what removes all the bad things. I'm not going to pretend I understood it, I'm going to need to do a bit more research on exactly what I did do. I guess the real surprise was the lack of coughing I would have thought went with first time smoking and the strange ability to take deep breaths and exhale lots of smoke with ease. A little difficult at times to capture the flavour, possibly in part because of our choice of flavour and our inexperience. We were told taking it in with the mouthpiece on the side of the mouth and drawing the smoke across our tongue helped. We chose grape which was very mild and the intention was to go back at some point and try strawberry but unfortunately, we never had the opportunity.
Dress Code: Casual
This place have a lots of chinese restaurant, for those who like to have multi chinese food, you can get here at bukit bingtang. For those who like Mediterranean food, you can get it along BB Plaza side walk, there are a few Mediterranean restaurent, and there is another big Mediterranean restaurant near to changkat raja chulan road.
Other than that, you can go to Petaling Street (China Town) to have a lots of choices of chinese food. To walk there from Bukit Bintang to China town it only take you about 20 to 30 mins walk, or you can take a taxi which take u there only less then 10mins, if there is no trafic.
Bukit Bintang also known as golden triangle in kuala lumpur. The night life here are very laid back. Most people will be around here for a chinese food, dinner and coffee with listening to a life band which play at the side walk. of BB Plaza. There are a pub and bistro, restaurant and pub but the place are not as noisy as other club at Jalan P.Ramlee, Jalan Penang or Jalan Sultan Ismail. Most people will sit at the coffee house at the side walk of bukit bintang and have coffee after dinner, listening to the life band music, or watching a cartoonist with their drawing and such.
If you are in the Bukit Bintang road (nearby Low Yat Plaza), please look for this person, he is an old artist that draw portrait on the spot, I did not ask the price but I saw he has a price tag written there. He is probably the only one that come out alone at night on street to make living this way.
This picture is Nightclubs at Bukit Bintang area, exact loaction is at the Sun Complex. These are nightclubs for you to spend the night with the girls (many from China), don't ask me too details, I never been there yet, this is only a photo taken from outside. But I have been to nightclubs elsewhere many years ago, there are some basic requirements you need before you walk in, here are some tips for you; Dress yourself like a typical rich businessman, have enough cash in pocket or cards ( RM200-1000) for tipping the girls that come to sit with you, you pay them in cash around RM20 each, the more you pay, the more girls come to you. Basically you are sitting in a big room or at a big hall with all the sofas audio/video stuffs, many serving boys come to serve you drinks, foods, liquor, etc, they for sure also wait for your tips. You can sit and watch girls singing, singing mostly Chinese love songs. All the girls in nightclubs were identified by numbers, i.e. 118, 77, 64, 36 and so on, don't waste time to find out their real names. Customers only need to recognize numbers, recognize which numbers are your dream girls, so that you can talk 'philosophy' with them later. Entering this kind of nightclubs at least RM300-500 per night minimum, I am not expert in nightclubs but just learn to write nightlife tips for VT to promote the country's tourism industry, hope you like it. Also, these type of Chinese-Nightclubs are actually abundant in Kuala Lumpur, you can easily tell its a nightclub when you see so many colorful neon lights. You don't have to speak Chinese, you can speak English to them.
Everynight, there will be live bands that perform on the street to entertain just about anyone who's walking the streets...
Shown in the picture is a pic of the drummer of a band who performs outside BB plaza. They play good retro music from the 70s-80s and occasionally they play a few great malay tunes...
When the shopping center closes around 9pm, the stairs to the shopping center becomes a free grand stand for all to get a drink and sit down just to watch the band..
Dress Code: Simple...anything goes
Along Jalan Cangkat Bukit Bintang [Jalan Hicks] to Jalan Bukit Bintang, several cafe arrange similar theme about F1 Race. Cool, we can go hang-out with everybody who has the same enthusiasm in F1!
Dress Code: Casual, but using F1 theme clothes will be nice, so can be noticed among fans :)
Bintang walk is supposed to bring the life back to the city and the city back to life. With so much entertainment and 5-star hotels this area will bring you back to life. A dozen night clubs and bars are scattered along the sidewalks which can be reached within walking distance.
If you like shopping, there is 6 humongous malls where you can take your picture such as Starhill, Lot 10, BB and Sungai Wang, KL Plaza, Debenham as well as the re-furbished Plaza Low Yat.
Bintang Walk is the place that defines 'lepak' culture and it's totally contagious. Almost every major nightlife event happens here such as the countdown, Merdeka eve celebration, as well as fashion shows, street concerts and parties.
