It is so comfortable and cozy at The Bee after dinner. The is a great hangout place with friends and family to enjoy cozy music and have great coffee, beer, or its homemade lemonade. If you check out its website, find out the special live music events both local and international held in the Bee.
The Publika is the latest trendy mall in the upscale neighborhood of Sri Hartamas or Mount Kiara. You can consider coming here in the afternoon for shopping, then spend your evening dinner and hang out with friends at The Bee.
Dress Code: Casual
Delanet's pub is sort of your traditional imitation irish pub, but this is one of the better of them in Malaysia.
I have benthere several times and find that the clientele, which consists of local business people, expats, football fans and weirdo travellers like me, is quite nice.
It's not a loud pub with loud music but a chilled out place where people come for a chat and a beer and mabye some wifi as they have that free of charge.
I personally prefer this place to most other nightspots in Bukit Bintang where you sometimes have too many hustlers and too much noise, so go here if you are like me and like a beer in laid back surroundings.
Dress Code: Pretty casual.
You have everything here from business people to backpackers.
Directly opposite the Twin Towers is a great club called "Quattro" - it has four distinct rooms named after the four seasons. Each room has a different seasonal theme and different musical theme to match. Simply go up and down the stairs until you find a floor you like.
The first floor is the summer floor. It is outdoors and features live music. No entry should be charged unless you are arriving very late at night.
Dress Code: Neat, a nice t-shirt and jeans is fine. No sneakers.
the only truly malaysian and singaporean beer is tiger beer but since the owners of the tiger beer are now owned by foreign conglomerates, the proliferation of many kinds of beers, lagers and ales are occuring.
Dress Code: none
what a more budget way of bonding with family than have a customary drink and do it at the hotel room. Being our first day in Kuala Lumpur and dead tired after a 2 hour delayed flight that arrived in the afternoon, we just settled on bonding on our hotel rooms and party the next night hehehe and just buy assorted beers at the 7-11 convenience store just beside our hotel. the beers will costs RM 9 for a 500 ml bottle like carlsberg or tiger beer and the bar chow like prawn crackers at RM 4 per bag.
Dress Code: none required since this is inside your checked in hotel room hehehehe and the best part of it is that there is no time limit and closing hours so you can stop anytime you want. i can be a cheapskate too at times heehehe.
Lake Titiwangsa plays host to a rich program of entertainment, designed to enchant visitors and locals alike. Highlights of the International Watersky Spectacular include: the Eye on Malaysia viewing wheel, the Theater of the Waters, the Dance of Lasers, the Art of Fireworks, the Wet & Wild Ski Show and the Malaysia Postcards display.
I enjoyed the Theater of the Waters and the Dance of Lasers very much. So if you have time, just come here as this entertainment is here only for the year 2007.
The place is very well built. I like the concept of having an outdoor bar where you can hang around and chat with your mates with a couple of beers and wines. There is a restaurant upstairs and a lounge downstairs.
The ambience is supposed to be very relaxing but once it turns into a club, it becomes havoc and a chaos to walk around in and it'll be just another club. The best thing about this place is the terrace / balcony upstairs where you can just chill out and the outdoor bar downstairs.
Dress Code: Smart Casual.
This place is excellent if you come just for dancing. They have great Latin music where you can dance all night long because their dance space is great. They don't have a cover charge but you need to buy a drink to enter.
Fridday night is for the normal crowd and Saturday are for Latin students from all over KL.
KL has these "all in one" places which cater for different tastes. 12 SI (http://www.twelvesi.com.my/) is the complex comprising Atmosphere (the techno joint), Bliss (more garage, R&B, various fusions of electronica), Bar Fly (sort of like Coyote Ugly with girls dancing on the bars) and cafes to hang out in. Other establishments in the area are Espanda, Nouvo/Sangria Bar, Beach Club & the opposite Thai Club (tourist meat markets... avoid at all costs!), Passion (nice!). Rum Jungle has also just opened up at the corner of Jalan Pinang and Jalan P. Ramlee. Could be gone 6 months later, let's see.
Zouk is another "all in one" complex. (http://www.zoukclub.com.my/unveil/enter.asp#) Zouk is the large, techno joint, Velvet Underground next to it is the R&B etc. equivalent, then there's the bars and cafes if you just want to chill out.
Bangsar around Jalan Telawi there are many places, cafes, bars, restaurants all in a row, - Bar Flam, Bar Ohm, BarZar (moroccan sit on cushions on floor), Bilique, Pharmacy, irish pubs like Finnegan's, spanish tapas bar La Bodega, etc... places come up and shut down again after 6 months and change names but these are the longer standing ones around... you'll find something you like surely. Bangsar Village is another mall full of nice restaurants in the area.
The other hotspot in KL at the moment is the Asian Heritage Row. Here you'll find Bar Savanh (balinese type decor with a good restaurant IndoChine upstairs - salsa nights on Sunday), Bar Blonde is an all-white bar, Saray Turkish Restaurant and all sorts of other places to hang out here also. On the street right next to the Sheraton Imperial Hotel on Jalan Sultan Ismail.
Other areas like Tengkat Tong Shin/Changkat Bukit Bintang, Bintang Walk on Jalan Bukit Bintang and Sri Hartamas in the suburbs of KL are also venerable hotspots with plenty of bars/ cafes/ restaurants/ clubs. I'll expand this tip or write separate ones for each of these areas at some point in time.
Dress Code: Most places don't really have a dress code and you'll be allowed in wearing everything or next to nothing. Maybe guys would want to avoid slippers and shorts though.
Huge dancefloor. Lots of secluded corners. Great lighting. Vibrating walls (???). DJS up from above.
Dress Code: Nice to dress up but most important is COMFORTABLE SHOES because you can bet your arse & legs will not stop moving once you are in :-p
Bar SaVanh (which means "Heaven" in Laotian) is one of the latest additions to our party city of Kuala Lumpur.
Opened just late last year(2003) I managed to stroll in one day because I used to pass this Heritage row on my way back, but was seriously curious on what they were going to do there.
Then one day, I saw this place. It was empty, it was practicially unknown. I walked in, they were short of staff and the place was dead. Music was interesting as they were playing some chill out stuff. So, I sat and waited on one of the opium sofas, in 15 minutes, someone came to get my order.
Nowdays, Bar SaVanh is THE most happening place in KL, well only to the sub-standard yuppie who's who in town kind of crowd. After all, it IS a new place with a new concept. The service has improved with more people are packing it in as the weeks go by.
It's more of the kind of place you'd like to be seen or to see. Drink prices are generally the same(RM11.00 a beer) and on the 1st floor, you have a dining section going under the name of CoChine (French for Indo-China)(which is Singaporean owned). Prices are reasonable so you don't have to fall off your chair.
Now, the interior - Just be careful when you've had one too many, or you might end up kissing one of the Koi's in the open ponds in the vicinity of the outlet.
I found the walls rather different due to the sandstone sculptures which came in many shapes and sizes. All of them are replicas of original artefacts from Angkor Wat.
The design of the place reflects the juxtaposition of old world charm and modern conveniences.
Who owns this joint? - 36 Year old Michael Ma, a Laotian-born Australian (of Teochew origin) who resides in Singapore.
Interesting facts - Some of his chefs are also from Indo-China, and he has an aunt and uncle who are his food 'quality controllers'.
Well, head on down there and see for your self. Nice place....to see or be seen.
Slick as you can be cause who's who wants to be there
This was a good spot to sit and enjoy the free outside Cultural Show. The beer prices are a bit steep by local standards though at $5.50 for a small beer. They serve food here but I have to admit I didn't see anyone eating . We enjoyed it though ,it was an interesting place to relax and enjoy the show.
Dress Code: Casual
I forgot to take a photo of the whole street after the dinner, the one I uploaded here was taken before my food hunting. You will find mostly Chinese food here. Seafood is reasonable charged.
Dress Code: Casual, lesser the possible :-)
