Tuesday, December 27, 2016

After five years spending my early 20's in Kuala lumpur and I moved back to Penang recently, however I can't forget the lifestyle that I experienced in KL for years...

When the sun goes down in Kuala Lumpur, these are the places that you should totally visit for the perfect, unforgettable night out. The best bars and nightclubs in Kuala Lumpur are of calming jazz bars and Hawaiian themed bars to electrified dance clubs, where you can expect the best hits in a variety of genres.

While most of the nightlife in Kuala Lumpur starts in Changkat, Bukit Bintang, there’s no shortage of exciting venues in different part of the city where you can party (or not) all night long. So put on your favourite dancing shoes and party your night away at some of the best spots in Kuala Lumpur.

Zouk KL at TREC Jalan Tun Razak
Can’t deny, my all-time favourite nightclub spot.
Zouk KL, a sprawling nightclub, bar, live music venue and restaurant, is an icon on Kuala Lumpur’s nightlife scene and has been around since 2004. Located along Jalan Ampang previously, and now moving to TREC; encompasses 11 rooms including the Main Room, Phuture, Terrace Bar and Velvet Underground. At Zouk KL, a rotating list of local and international DJs spin heady dance floor tracks until the wee hours and has also attracted international, famous headliners such as DJ Tiesto, Paul Van Dyk and David Morales in the past.

Pisco Bar at Changkat Bukit Bintang
Pisco Bar, situated opposite Parkroyal Serviced Suites KL, stands out from Bukit Bintang’s horde of bustling bars and pubs with its eclectic decor of industrial chic and contemporary pop culture, outstanding Spanish tapas and cocktails, as well as ambience unlike any other. The ground floor is furnished with long tables and wooden benches for dining and social gatherings while a flight of exposed stairs takes guests up to an open terrace and stylish indoor space that hosts cocktail parties and movie screenings with resident DJs spinning techno and deep house tunes all night long.

Rootz Rooftop Bar at Bukit Bintang
Rootz Rooftop Bar is an opulent nightclub that is devoted to the idea of debonair drinking, complete with a lavishly-conceived version of a Russian palace bar. Velvet drapes, thick carpeting and gilded paintings of early 19th century Renaissance revival on the walls has us instantly impressed; from the entrance hall, it opens up to a ballroom-sized 700-capacity space. The music policy of R&B, house and remixed top 40 tunes makes it one of the best clubs in Kuala Lumpur.

Havana Bar & Grill at Changkat Bukit Bintang
Havana Bar & Grill is a popular restaurant and nightclub that’s set in an elegant 1950s mansion with a distinctive Latin American ambience. Resembling a colorful Cuban-style hacienda in a tropical rainforest, this two-storey establishment is divided into three bright and colorful areas – an open-air pub, a cigar lounge and a restaurant that serves up island-inspired drinks and a mix of Cajun classics and Louisiana Creole specialties. In addition to talented DJs playing samba, bachata, and disco tunes, there’s also a live salsa band and dance shows held on certain nights to keep the party bouncing till the wee hours of morning.
