  • Five Great Clubs in KL

    Five great nightclubs in Kuala Lumpur

    When the sun sets in Kuala Lumpur, the city transforms into a colourful and vibrant hub with a bevy of watering holes that are packed with late night revellers and travellers craving lasers, liquor, and bass-heavy beats. While Kuala Lumpur’s nocturnal scene doesn’t quite hit the heights of, say, Ibiza or Rio de Janeiro, it still one of the best party spots in Asia.

    For those who want to enjoy a raving good time in Kuala Lumpur complete with dance-worthy tunes and extensive alcoholic offerings, we have handpicked our favourite after-dark gems where you get to party all night long with the rich and famous, expats, trendsetters and hardcore clubbers. Read on and discover our 5 Best Clubs in Kuala Lumpur.

  • If you have only one night to party in KL, hit Zouk. One of the premier nightspots in the city, Zouk encompasses six dynamically different themed rooms (namely Aristo & Rooftop Garden, Barsonic, Main Room, Phuture, Terrace Bar and Velvet Underground), and with frequent appearances from international heavyweights such as Above & Beyond and DJ Tiesto, it’s no wonder that Zouk is still a favourite among KL-lites even after nine years of existence. Tuesdays are ‘Ghetto Heaven’ nights featuring selections of only the best hip hop and R&B grooves, and Wednesdays are Mambo Jambo parties, taking you back to the 80s with hits from the era, so strut your best stuff and dance the night away!

    Frangipani is an institution in Kuala Lumpur, featuring an immaculate fine-dining experience on the ground floor and a posh nightclub upstairs. Known as one of the earliest LGBT-friendly spots in the city, Frangipani is regarded as one of the places to go for a great night out if you’re looking for somewhere upmarket to let your hair down. The recent renovation sees the bar area sporting a much classier look – heavy on mirrors and stainless steel pillars – giving the place a much-needed edge, so give Frangipani a go when you’re in town.
