Jalan Sultan Ismail Nightlife

What to Do at Night in Jalan Sultan Ismail

Once the main nightlife district of Kuala Lumpur, Jalan Sultan Ismail is still reliable when it comes to nightlife despite rising competition from more happening areas such as Changkat Bukit Bintang and Asian Heritage Row. Located a short distance from the iconic Petronas Twin Towers, getting off at the Dang Wangi LRT station will put you right at the beginning of the road. A stroll down Jalan Sultan Ismail takes you past many of the city’s premier nightspots as well as into more nightlife districts such as Jalan P. Ramlee.

Hakka Republic

Hakka Republic is a cocktail lounge set on the second floor of Menara Hap Seng along Jalan P Ramlee.

The overall experience at Hakka Republic is warm, sultry and inviting – staff members are friendly, efficient and will go the extra mile to keep you happy.

Heli Lounge Bar

There are plenty of things that wow us when it comes to Heli Lounge Bar. First, there is the concept – a helicopter pad turned nightlife hotspot is definitely one of the coolest things we have seen or heard of in Kuala Lumpur in recent times. Secondly, there is the theme, with everything in the lounge aeronautically-oriented, like a booth made from the converted side panel of a Boeing 737 and a Boeing-747 turbine turned into a DJ console. Lastly, Heli Lounge Bar’s little-known status will make you feel like you are part of the super elite when you visit. Read More...
