    Rum Jungle: Cool Club near the Towers

    by cjg1 Updated Mar 2, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This was a place that Vigi knew and wanted to go back to. Cover charge was about 30 RM but includes a drink to take the sting off of it. I can't remember getting anything else to drink here that night so I don't know how the pricing changes.

    We stayed about an hour and listened and danced to the really good band.

    Savannah Bar: Classy Bar in Petaling Jaya

    by leanne_pearc Written Feb 2, 2008

    A bar with a great crowd and atmosphere. Great live band and reasonable price cocktails at RM20. The bar is decked out in an Indochina theme with an aquarium at the bar.

    The night we went there was a private party where the manager let us stay. All tables were covered in rose petals and free whisky was provided.

    Dress Code: Casual, smart

    Borneo Baruk Club: I love the ambience, food and drinks here !

    by LiL... Written Dec 26, 2007

    It is an oasis in the hustle and bustle of city life. The rainforest theme is charming. There is quite a variety of food and the presentation and taste top notch. Drinks are reasonably priced and the bands there are always entertaining. Ideal for small groups and big groups. If you want a breath of fresh air, they have an al-fresco section.

    Dress Code: Smart casual/formal/sexy/whatever floats your boat

    Rainforest Bistro: Sunway pyramid

    by Jeff1026 Updated Oct 31, 2007

    This is a wonderful place to be. It is open from 10am-2am. One of the most entertaining bistro in the KL area. The architectural design is of ancient Eygpt with live DJ request, street Magic and fun people to hang around. is a most place to be and money spent worthwhile. The drinks are relatively inexpensive and good bartender service. Mixtures are perfectly done unlike most other places. Other items of interest around the area include waterworld, carnival, ice skating, shopping mall all in the design of ancient Eygpt.

    Dress Code: Dress casual and smart.

    Groove Junction Bistro & Cafe: Groove into the night...

    by KL-Boy Updated Oct 8, 2007

    A surprise find recommended by word of mouth. The live music here is fantastic and the music is everything ("above all else" - if you chat with Jose Thomas the Music Director). Love that long drawn out drum set they have during Jazz Fridays...

    Dress Code: Dress is nothing..
    Appreciation for good live music is everything.

    New Current Nightspots In KL

    by mizzzthanggg Written Aug 9, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ok... this is a quick update to my previous tip, but like i said... many of the 'in' places don't last. Folks, the TwelveSI all-in-one place i mentioned before is no more. But some of the others are still around! Like these:

    For something more clubby/housy check out the Asian Heritage Row behind the Sheraton Imperial hotel. If u get a cab to take u there, just walk round the side of the hotel and u can't miss all the noise n lights. Joints like Bar Savahn, The Loft, Cynna Bar... and Maison are still hip apparently.

    if you're into a more latin sort of groove check out QBa's Latin Night on
    Thursdays at the Westin Hotel on Jalan Bukit Bintang, also lots of bright lights
    and places to hang out here. There's a live Colombian band which starts playing
    at 930pm and this is where my friends and i usually go :)

    if u're a man, u may pick up more than u bargain for in places like the Hard Rock Cafe, the Beach Club or any of those joints along Jalan P.Ramlee... any cab driver knows this area too...

    For something a lil more sedate but no less fun there are bars along Changkat Bukit Bintang like Frangipani's, Little Havana, the Green Man (english pub), Hemingway's... etc.

    Dress Code: Asian Heritage Row bars and clubs do not admit men in tank/sleeveless tops/wifebeaters, or slippers/thongs/flip-flops or shorts. Women pretty much get away with anything.

    Mezza Notte: chill...

    by themadbuddha Written Jun 24, 2007

    Thursday 07/06/07
    Mezza Notte on Heritage Row is actually one of four establishments in the same building, all with the same owner. Under the same roof as The Loft, Mezza Notte on the ground floor is an Italian restaurant that shares space with Tokyo Tei, a Japanese sushi restaurant on the ground floor and the nightclubs Upstairs and Cynna and restaurant Ye Chine. On the Thursday night there was a small crowd there and we were lucky enough to meet the members of the resident band. Sufiah (I was told afterwards she was ex Malaysian idol contestant), Eric and Shah are an excellent trio and I was more than happy to relax, talk and listen to the music. The set on the night included Ain't No Sunshine as an instrumental, American Pie, Sweet Love, My Funny Valentine, Through the Fire, Killing Me Softly and Besame Mucho. We stayed until they finished and I enjoyed every moment. Such a great place to just relax and chill.

    Waikiki Bar: Pub life

    by themadbuddha Written Jun 24, 2007

    Monday 04/06/07
    Waikiki Bar for drinks at the end of the night. A Hawaiian themed little bar overlooking a pool, of course the staff were in Hawaiian shirts. Great band, great atmosphere. Buy a bottle of spirits or liquor and the waiter will mix your next round of cocktails when you finish the glass. The band was only a three piece but they were great, each shared the singing and the mix of music was pretty much classic rock. Only personal downside was, not only did I know every song they played, and had the words to each going through my head while they were performing, all the songs were from my youth and I had to admit, I started to feel a little old.

    Dress Code: Casual

    The Village Bar: Cocktail hour!

    by Blondiina Written Jun 5, 2007

    The Village Bar in the Feast Village in the basement of Starhill Gallery is a nice place for a drink in chic surroundings. There are pillars made of bottles, colourful lamps and lanterns adorn the ceiling and the bar is very open air allowing people from different sides of the bar to see each other and communicate with the staff. They have sort of different counters for different types of drinks for example rice wine, cocktails, wine, beer etc. but of course this doesn't mean you are restricted to just that one counter. Service is friendly and the waiters young and beautiful.
    Check out if they have good offers on cocktails like 2 for 1.

    Lecka Lecka: An oasis in the middle of the city

    by Blondiina Updated May 29, 2007

    Lecka Lecka is located right in front of Starhill Gallery. It is kind of an ice cream bar during the day and transfers into a sultry cocktail bar when it gets dark. Decorated in rich colours and fabrics, this open air place feels like an oasis in its enticing reddish glow. This is a perfect place to end the evening with a delicious cocktail or two (or three or four…) They also serve snacks if you feel peckish and waterpipes seem to be a popular pastime here too. Oh, and don’t forget the ice cream. Service is very friendly and the waiters are great fun to talk with.

    Lecka Lecka: Chilling out under the palm trees :o)

    by Loubna Written May 12, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lecka Lecka is mainly an Italian gelato place but the main attraction for everyone is the chilled out everyone under the palm trees in the centre of the city. They have a good food menu, shisha, good music and Moroccan mint tea :o)

    I have spent many many evenings here chilling out after work or during the weekends.

    This is almost like my second home, as I don't have my Moroccan tea pots here, I have found a place to indulgent in our favourite past time :o)

    The entire place is place is outdoors and decorated in a great arabic fashion which complements the chill out factor. The staff here are very friendly :o)

    The pizzas are made old style and are extremely delicious, one is enough for two and the chocolate desser is yummy :o)

    Not to be missed in KL, definitely my favourite place here :o)

    Dress Code: No dress code :o)

    Clubs at Heritage Area, P. Ramlee's Road & etc: 3 main areas that i'll give you guys an idea

    by anwarzamree Written Apr 22, 2007

    3 hot spots.. 1) Heritage Row or Heritagge Area and 2) Lorong P. Ramlee 3) ampang road.. these three areas provide you loads of great club for you to choose..
    The R&B place that you should consider..
    On Friday or Saturday nite;

    Heritage Area (the main spot of young executive/ profesional grp of ppl);
    Sina Bar (this place, the DJ will play 2 types of songs i.e. a lot of R&B and a bit of rave & house... Luna Bar should be considered too 9 Near Menara K.L.. (dont go to maison on saturday nite, its totally RAVE), u can go there if you n ur boy wanna pop then.. ;-Þ

    Lorong P. Ramlee ( P. Ramlee's Rd);
    Passion (totally R&B and it is a cool place, M'sian Artist take this club as one of their fav).. Rum Jungle (totally R&B too but the club is based on jungle's concept so there is a possiblity of mosquitos disturbing you then as i had experienced)... Beach club ( totally R&B, loads of foreigner and old crowd, 30+ & above).. Emporium ( Fancy club but i'm not sure whether its R&B or not) There was a weekend i went there & it plays R&B and the other weekend i went, it's not.. I'm a bit blur about Empo.. Nouvo, i'm ensure it's R&B nite on weekends but this is a main-spot of black ppl..

    Ampang Road;
    1) Zouk.. 2) i much prefer either to club at Velvet or the Loft rather than Zouk... (The songs at these two clubs are good and the crowd are awesome coz these 2 spot are pack with young & posh ppl)..

    Near K.L Tower;
    Luna Bar is the most stylo spot ever.. The songs play there are great and it is the spot for young executive ppl and foreigners.
    You should consider also, Sugar.. Great songs & massive crowd but the police love to raid there.. it will spoil ur nite then..

    For Wednesday nite.......... Maison is the ***!! if not, go to the loft, planet hollywood (Ster Hill) or Glow (P. Ramlee area).. For Thursday nite, Zouk definitely..

    Wish my info above could help you then.. ;-)

    Dress Code: As long as you are the tourist.... These ppl will let you in.. No worries.
    The Beach Club is the only club that doesn't bother at all.. Other clubs except it just make the rules that wearing shoe are obligatory and recommendable for you guys, wear collar shirt so you could enter any club you wanted then
