10 Best Nightlife in Kuala Lumpur 2014

Most Popular Nightlife Spots in Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur’s city centre – along with some choice urban spots – lights up at night as youngsters, revellers and yuppies frequent clubs, bars and pubs on the streets. The city’s nightlife action really starts to get going after 22:00, though you’ll find plenty of resto-bars that open early.

Karaoke is an especially popular activity, usually among the city’s Chinese inhabitants, who love to belt out oldies and contemporary Canto pop music.

Jalan Bukit Bintang

Jalan Bukit Bintang is Kuala Lumpur’s best known sector and when the sun goes down, there’s almost no end to its nightlife offerings. Providing endless choices when it comes to afterdark entertainment, there’s a plethora of resto-bars that swing into action come nightfall plus many of the hotels that line the street have their own trendy watering holes and nightclubs.

Changkat Bukit Bintang

Regarded as the ‘it’ party venue in Kuala Lumpur’s lively yet fluid clubbing scene at the moment, Changkat Bukit Bintang is a narrow avenue filled with restaurants that metamorphose into nightclubs with cocktails bars and pubs that transform into rowdy drinking joints, with deejays spinning music. Amongst the bevy of watering holes, there are a few establishments that stand out. Read More...

Petaling Street Night Market Chinatown

The nightlife in Chinatown is in a league of its own – it’s not about rows of clubs, pubs and bars offering music-and-alcohol-fueled entertainment, but the colourful after-dark market along Petaling Street that dominates the nightlife scene here. The souk seems to grow noisier and more vibrant as the night progresses. Read More...

Jalan P. Ramlee KLCC

When it comes to nightlife, Jalan P. Ramlee is considered one of the city’s hottest venues. In comparison to its neighbour (Changkat Bukit Bintang), Jalan P. Ramlee can best be described as a wackier and more eccentric nightspot. There are usually throngs of party-goers club-hopping from one establishment to another. Read More...


Bangsar is famous for its nightlife haunts. A popular expatriate stomping ground, Bangsar is home to a variety of night spots ranging from funky pubs and mini night clubs and to resto-bars and elegant cafés. On the weekends, the streets are crawling with college students, yuppies, tourists and expatriates who come to enjoy the song, dance and drinks. Read More...

Asian Heritage Row

Popular with the young and yuppie crowd, the Asian Heritage Row is a section of Jalan Doraisamy which gives way to a spectacular stretch of aged converted colonial buildings. Located just off Jalan Sultan Ismail right next to Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur, the avenue features once-abandoned 80-year old houses that have been turned into trendy dining and entertainment options with elegant and arresting façades. Read More...

Jalan Sultan Ismail KLCC

Once the main nightlife district of Kuala Lumpur, Jalan Sultan Ismail is still reliable when it comes to its nightlife offerings, despite rising competition from happening areas such as Changkat Bukit Bintang and the Asian Heritage Row. Dominating this stretch is the sprawling TwelveSi. Read More...

Pasar Malam

Pasar Malams (Malay for night markets) are an incredibly prominent feature in the Malaysian shopping experience. Available in every state throughout the country, these after-dark souks are all the rage because they allow locals to shop for inexpensive household goods. Busy streets within residential neighbourhoods are shut down to traffic (one day only in a week) and stalls are set up as early as 18:00. Read More...

Jalan Ampang KLCC

One of the main roads in the KLCC area which connects straight to the Petronas Twin Towers, Jalan Ampang is a green, shady stretch of road on which plenty of exciting nightlife options are located. A perfect starting point for those wishing to explore the heart of Malaysia’s capital city. Read More...

Reggae Bar Chinatown

Reggae Bar Chinatown is exactly what it says it is: a groovy and colourful bar playing reggae music, with photos of Bob Marley and other legends of the genre on the walls. The only bar in the area, it is an ultra friendly place knee-deep in backpackers, set along Jalan Tun HS Lee. Read More...
