Bangsar Nightlife

What to Do at Night in Bangsar

Nightlife in Bangsar plays hosts a growing number of trendy restobars, pubs, and cocktail lounges where fashion-forward locals mingle with international visitors in what is a particularly popular expat area.

Situated within a 10-minute drive from the city centre, most of these nightlife hotspots are concentrated around Jalan Telawi in Bangsar Baru and are within walking distances from each other. As you might expect, this area is always bustling with late night revellers every Friday until Sunday. About ten minutes away from Jalan Telawi is Bangsar South, a commercial hub that’s gaining popularity for hosting trendy eateries with impressive alcoholic offerings. Needless to say, Bangsar is the perfect alternative to the often overcrowded bars and pubs in Changkat Bukit Bintang.

Some of its standout features include friendly service and a menu of hearty, comfort food which will make you want to linger long after the game is over.

Largely resembling a Spanish hacienda, with its bright and colourful interior design, La Bodega Lounge is certainly no stranger in Bangsar’s nightlife scene – after all, it has been around since 1999 along Jalan Telawi 2. Well-liked for its extensive tapas menu and classy ambience, the award-winning bistro continues to draw in a steady stream of loyal regulars.

Inviting and intimate, the bar (set above the bistro’s dining room) has several seating sections – high tables and chairs surround the bar, with snooker tables tucked into the back. Around the music stage, there are comfortable sunken couches, perfect for playing board games that the bar supplies and sipping on a cocktail. There is a good selection of Spanish, South American, Australian and Californian wines, but we love the cocktail menu’s delicious, potent thirst quenchers.

If you want to wow the socks off your date then Mezze Bistro & Lounge comes highly recommended. Don’t get us wrong, plenty of mixing and mingling with friends and business networking goes on here but the restaurant’s intimate, relaxed atmosphere, makes it one of our favourite date night spots. Downstairs is the main dining hall (on Friday and Saturday we recommend you book ahead as tables get snapped up pretty fast) and the stairs up to level one lead to a lounge. Decked out like an Italian café with bare red brick walls, leather booths, Oriental-style rugs, fat naked light bulbs hanging from the ceiling and candlelit tables, the two-storey bistro has a distinctly local touch to it with some Malaysian artwork on its walls.

Spread across three floors, The Hill is a trendy bar-cum-bistro in Damansara Heights, with an easy-going vibe, right from the menu to the simple decor of its three thematic dining and drinking areas. On the first floor is a Japanese Garden, with seats enclosing a chabudai-like square table and private beer tap; the second floor sees a beer garden, with concrete flooring and a wooden platform with a bar and kitchen. Finally at the apex of the building is an open-air loft-cum-lounge, perfect for a romantic sit-down dinner.

The bar’s extensive cocktail is an altogether different ballgame in comparison to other bars in Bangsar, so you will get to pick your poison from a varied, thoroughly inspired menu of delicious creations. Our favourite is the watermelon slush, a mix of Smirnoff vodka, midori, lychee liqueur and watermelon, presented in the hollowed-out shell of a watermelon. Read More...

The flagship outlet in Bangsar was opened in 2001, but these days The Social has a second venue at The Square in Publika Mall, Sri Hartamas. Mention The Social to any Bangsar-ite and they will tell you it is the place to go for dining and drinks. With plenty to offer, things really get going at The Social after sunset. The restaurant’s selection of happy hour deals is hard to pass up on: from Tiger, Guinness and Kilkenny to Heineken, Strongbow and Paulaner, prices are pretty decent. Read More...

Located inside Bangsar Shopping Centre, WIP is certainly no stranger to change – after all, its name used to be an acronym for Work in Progress, with the bistro’s décor emulating that of a construction site with exposed ceiling pipe work, buffed concrete floors and construction tape. It later experienced an extensive renovation phase that resulted in an urban tropical setting, now christening itself Whipped into Place.

Whatever the theme, the food (a delicious mix of local, western and Northern Indian cuisine) has always been good, with so many locals considering it a staple on their list of places to dine out at. It is not a roaring dance club – rather, a cheerful and sophisticated place to have a drink. The bar offers premium and boutique labels, as well as champagnes, but it is the creative cocktails list that impresses, including over 21 different sangrias and mojitos. Themed-beverage nights make it especially worthwhile to come here – for example, Sundays is Get Sparkly with Bubbly and Tuesdays is Bullish with the Beer.

Opening Hours: 12:00 – 15:00; 18:00 – late
Address: Lot G111, Ground Floor, Bangsar Shopping Centre, 285 Jalan Maarof
Tel: +603 2094 1789 or +604 2094 2789
