Changkat Bukit Bintang Nightlife

What to Do at Night in Changkat Bukit Bintang

All the rage in Kuala Lumpur now, Changkat Bukit Bintang is one of the city’s most happening boulevards. Regarded as the ‘it’ party venue in KL’s lively yet fluid clubbing scene, Changkat is crammed with restaurants that morph into nightclubs with cocktails bars and pubs that transform into rowdy drinking joints, with deejays spinning music. Live performances from various local acts are also held in a number of nightspots. Amongst the bevy of watering holes, there are a few establishments that stand out – Comedy Thursdays every first Thursday of the month at Havana Bar & Grill are a riot, stopover at Frangipani’s on Friday for unofficial rainbow nights and don’t miss out on Envie Club Lounge’s Saturday R & B night.

Pinchos Tapas Bar

Pinchos Tapas Bar is a Spanish-style bar and restaurant that is an ideal place for a light, casual dinner. On the night we visited the place was crowded but with plenty of tables, it was easy to get a seat. Salsa music plays over the speakers, creating a sultry, animated vibe and making it a great place to get together with friends for drinks. From the outside Pinchos looks modest, with lots of potted plants and some outdoor seating. Inside, the bar takes pride of place at the front, with intimate wooden tables and chairs set up all around it: Spanish tiles and pendant lights that cast a warm, romantic glow over the area make it a great place for date nights.

Another quirky special at The Bier Bar is the Eiffel Tower, a three-litre beer tower shaped like the Eiffel Tower.

The Establishment restaurant is the latest addition to Bukit Bintang’s nightlife scene. A neighbour to Palate Palette bistro and No Black Tie jazz bar, drawing instant attention are its whitewashed exterior walls, every inch covered in graffiti-style mural images of famous celebrities such as Amy Winehouse, Audrey Hepburn and Abe Lincoln.

The Green Man

The Green Man is one of the oldest restobars along Changkat Bukit Bintang. Set in an abandoned pre-war terraced house, it looks like a typical British pub with a bar and pool table. There are pencil-drawn sketches of old London Town and a few teakwood tables for you to sit at inside but most people choose the outdoor seating – the perfect spot to people watch. There are flashier clubs just next door but if you are looking for a different sort of energy, then the old tavern-like feel of The Green Man is for you. The pub’s happy hour deals, coupled with its green décor and peaceful, homey vibe make it the perfect place to hang out with friends. Read More...

The Social

One of the more popular outlets along Changkat, this establishment has another outlet in Bangsar. Sangria Sundays are a good deal and the bar has live bands rocking out a few times a week. The menu isn’t extensive yet the food is good; try the aromatic crispy duck – crispy duck served with homemade pancakes, sweet plum sauce, chilli oil and julienne of spring onions and cucumber.

Address: 22, Changkat Bukit Bintang
Tel: (603) 2142 8260

The Whisky Bar

The Whisky Bar

A favourable location at the end of Changkat Bukit Bintang and an intimate atmosphere helps The Whisky Bar to stand out in one of Kuala Lumpur’s prime clubbing areas. Though it is surrounded by nightclubs, this place is a drinking and dining spot primarily for a mature crowd. A jazz-infused sanctuary of single malts, it has a casual, good-time vibe, making it a great spot to mix and mingle. The hundreds of bottles of whisky on the glass shelves define The Whisky Bar’s interior design the most. But cushy, red leather bucket armchairs, blackboards with the bar’s vast list of single malt whiskies chalked up on them go a long way to ensuring the place looks a lot like a posh whisky den – you almost expect to see a roaring fireplace. Read More...

Opening Hours: 16:00 – 03:00
Address: 44 & 46 & 48 Changkat Bukit Bintang 52000 KL
Tel: +603 2143 2268 Kitchen + Bar

A popular haunt amongst the young and uber trendy, the sleek and sophisticated, Kitchen + Bar is a restaurant that transforms into a throbbing party venue at night, particularly during weekends. Opened in 2007, the main dining area downstairs serves mouth-watering dishes in a quieter atmosphere but the best place to enjoy the delicious food is at the outdoor lounge. Try the penne drowned in three cheese sauce, diced chicken and sun-dried tomatoes; enjoy free cocktails on Thursdays if you don a pink outfit.

Opening Hours: Daily, 12:00 - Late
Address: 20 – 1 Changkat Bukit Bintang
Tel: (603) 2142 0021

Werner’s on Changkat

Boasting a well-stocked bar, Werner’s on Changkat occupies an expansive corner lot along Changkat Bukit Bintang.
