Formerly known as The Life Center. The place is really nice and huge. It's probably as big as Zouk. The have a nice verrandah / balcony. Big one with nice seats. Loads of places to hang out at the club. Nice bars as well. The only thing that I don't like about this place is the crowd.
Happy Hours: 17:00 - 22:00 & 17:00 - 00:00 (Midnight on Sunday only)
They have a nice bar downstairs as you walked into the place. It's also a restaurant before a certain time, which I'm unsure of. At the back of the place, they have such cozy tables to dine. Upstairs, there's a row of pool tables and a really nice balcony with stools so that you can enjoy the view of the whole street, which is full of people, cars and clubs. A nice place to hang out when you're worn out.
Dress Code: Smart Casual
It's a Latin club where they play Latin music and you'll be dancing loads of salsa, merengue an bachata. The place has been very well decorated with a live music performance on a stage and plenty of seats and tables around.
It can be very crowded during weekends though. Entrance is free. The downside of this place is the dancefloor as it is very small.
This is a lively, open air nightclub with DJ and good bar. Plays latest Western chart music & some Latin American. Good for dancing and meeting people - but we were very drunk when we got there - I remember dancing......
Dress Code: Don't think they're that fussy - I had my ever faithful hat on I think!
Great place to hang out...
The same area has 2 other clubs, Passion and Poppies...
Havanita has a live band and the songs played are not too bad...Its a small place, small dance floor, but its rather cosy and a great place to meet and hv drinks!
Dress Code: Casual, good to dress though.. :)
A favourite with locals and expats. Live music everyday. Not sure of location, near one or two hotels but not sure which. Ask the taxi driver he will now. It's called Qbar but when pronounced sounds like Cuba. One of the best places to go out.
Dress Code: Smart as always!
Good to go in and have a drink, but with bars next door to each other is hard to choose in which to stay. Start with the first one Savanah and just go in and out to your hearts content. The Loft has girls night on tuesday or wenesday and you can have 2-4 drinks for free. Some bars have live bands. A good night out.
Dress Code: Smart... always! Women in KL make an effort when they go out at night.
It is great little place in suburbia of KL, off Jalan Klang Lama. We wanted to go there for a gig and only we were lucky enough to find group of punks heading for the same thing and willing to take us with. The owner is friendly English man who told me variety of live, alternative gigs happens at his place. The HC gig we were to watch that night was great event: it seems punks from all over Malaysia came to see it and the place was unfortunately too small to take in all the crowd. Therefore, the atmosphere was great and place also!
Dress Code: all trash you can wear
I nipped in to Carnegie's for a quick pint one afternoon during my visit to Kuala Lumpur in December 2005.
The beer here isn't particularly cheap (but then it isn't cheap anywhere in KL as far as I could see!), but they do have a large selection of imported beers.
I paid RM27.70 (about 4.20GBP / 6.30 Euros) for a draught pint of the excellent Belgian white beer, Hoegaarden.
The cheapest possible pint is Tiger beer (RM19), while other draught beers include Heineken (RM28), Stella (RM29), Kilkenny (RM29) and Guinness (RM28).
Bottled beers (330ml) include, at the cheaper end of the scale, Carlsberg (RM15) and Heineken (RM16), and at the dearer end of the scale (approx RM25), Becks, Stella, Fosters, Corona and Leffe.
There is a huge selection of spirits and a long cocktail menu.
Soft drinks cost RM8.
There is an extensive food menu (although I didn't eat here), including a special Southern Comfort menu with various foods (chicken wings, steaks, burgers, lamb chops, salmon steaks) cooked in a Southern Comfort sauce.
There are a handful of tables out front, while the large, air conditioned interior has large screen TVs showing live sport.
Dress Code: No dress code during the day (I sat outside in shorts, T-shirt and flip flops). May be a dress code at night.
Other than pub and disco , youi can also visit pasar malam (night market)
Another version of petaling street (Chinatown) but here you find more hip hops clothing, more snacks food, and much cheaper!
My fav is at Taman Caunnaught , Cheras (Every Wednesday ) from 6pm to 10pm
Dress Code: Casual, Tshits and shorts!
When "Go West" (Petshop Boys) means you have to go a little bit crazy.... But how else can one get these happy shots?
Although someone will be regretting this when their kids grab a hold of this and bring it out for "show and tell" in school.
Cheap Karoake rooms are available throughoutKL. Even cheaper when you bypass their overpriced beverage menu and sneak in your own grog.....
....I am such a juvienle
Hang out at Blonde Bar and watch the rest of the partying world drift and/or stagger by. The cool little seating area at the front of the bar allows you to relax and chilli.
It place is definitely less hectic than the bars and club surrounding it. It's ideal if you can be assed lining up to pay a hefty entrance fee.
The inside is nice as well. Nice dimmy lit kind of ambiance.
After all the talk and hype people were telling me of this place, I'd just had to see what it was all about. So when my baby sister came to town, it was the perfect excuse.
So we got there about 11pm and scored ourselves a bottle of Abslout on entry. Here is a tip for travellers, if you party in KL buy a bottle at the door, it generally covers your entry cost and overall is most cost effective if you're the drinking type.
Thinking that we we're there early enough to get a table, we found out how wrong we were. Every nock and cranny had a "Resevred" sign on it. Not cool. Luckily we found ourselves a piece of the bar and drank ourselves happy.
Sad thing is that the place didn't really fill up until almost 1am; the crowd wasn't the friendliest lot; and the music was "iffy" at best.
But the alcohol and friends did help a lot.
Dress Code: Bring a collared shirt or jacket. My mate came with cool T-shirt and they would let him in. But there is a scam with the Valet boys. They rent out jacket for those in need. Just approach them discretly.
Pasar Malam (Night Market) is a potpourri of sights and sounds, making it a fascinating experience of a truly Malaysian identity. Comprising of makeshift stalls which stock anything from folk medicine and fresh fruit to household utensils and fashion-wear, these night bazaars are a treat for the senses and a paradise for bargain hunters.
Now if you are tired of restaurants and pubs or adult spots, you can once a while change to watch kids racing on the street here at the Merdeka Square after 12pm. I only been here once when I drove back home late 1pm midngiht after work, I saw many motorcycle gangs here, they would race among each other for perhaps some money or perhaps just to have fun since they have nothing else more important to learn in their growing age. Watching street racing probably helps them to release some unsatisfactory in life or some other reasons coming from family, society, education....
