Kuala Lumpur is a vibrant and lively nocturnal hub of countless bars, pubs and clubs on the streets, as well as swanky rooftop establishments situated within five-star hotels.
Changkat Bukit Bintang, which is is located perpendicular to Jalan Bukit Bintang and Jalan Alor, about 5 minutes walk away from the Hotel, is arguably the most popular nightspot in Kuala Lumpur. Its nightlife is well-regarded as the ‘it’ party venue in the city’s lively yet fluid clubbing scene. A busy street that’s lined with plenty of international two-storey restobars, snazzy nightclubs, posh cocktail lounges, subdued whisky bars, and lively Irish pubs, it is one of the city’s most vibrant boulevards.
The entire area is a vibrant place and has over 40 dining and drinking venues. For the person travelling on budget, almost every bar has a happy hour, usually from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm. On Wednesdays they have "Ladies Night" at many venues and ladies will often drink for free for a limited time. On weekends the prices are a bit steeper, but cheaper options are still available. Every quite often, there is a pub crawl happening there, which is a good way to save money and meet other travelers, locals and expats.
Malaysians also like to head to ‘Mamak’ stalls (street side stalls or shops operated by Indian Muslims) which offers a range of non-alcoholic beverages like teh tarik (frothed tea) and light food like roti canai. In fact, these stalls have also become night hangouts in their own right, and many outlets have installed wide-screen projectors and TV where they screen football matches. Most outlets are open 24 hours. These stalls can be found all over the city and is a wonderful part of the Malaysian night scene.
