If you're going out in Kuala Lumpur this can last 24 hours. There are plenty of bars / clubs that are open until the late hours of the night. Malaysians usually go to the district of Bangsar, although Mount Kyara also in attendance. The best way to get there is to take a taxi which brings you to one of these entertainment districts. Almost every bar / club has his own "happy hour".
Most of the tourists who come for the first time in KL go the to Jalan Alor. Here are many restaurants where you can eat delicious on plastic chairs for a reasonable price. The evening is very
cosy with lights and lanterns. Every tourist must have been here once in his holidays. Jalan Alor is located close to major shopping malls like Bukit Bintang, Sungei Wang and Pavilion.
However, if you're staying in the Golden Triangle is entertainment at Jalan Changkat a better opportunity. The hotels nearby are: Radius Hotel Istana, Federal, Royale Bintang, Grand Millennium, Westin, Novotel, Park Royal, Furama, Capitol, Fortuna, Berjaya Times Square. These are the hotels which are close Bukit Bintang. Here is also the monorail station, if you have come from anaother part of the city.
Tip: how to get there from Bukit Bintang Shopping Mall: Walk past the KFC, Jalan Alor, further past Hotel Radius and you're there. A total of approximately 200 meters. The owners of these bars are foreigners and Malaysians. There are German, English, Beer and Whisky bars.
Another occasion where you can go to dine and drink at night is the passage ("connection level") at the Pavilion. Here are several restaurants and bars. You can have western food, like pasta but they have also "sauerkraut with a sausage"(!). In the shopping
centre are also several restaurants, but they have often fast food. Opposite the Pavilion is Starhill with a wonderful restaurant in the basement.
Both Shopping Malls are in thee Golden Triangle.
If you walking through the passage of the Pavilion, you come to a footbridge across a busy, wide street. If you go about this footbridge, you cross the street. If you have done that you must go straight down. Here is a very large Chinese restaurant "Hakka". Here you can try a variety of delicious dishes, such as Steamboat (a kind of Chinese fondue). This restaurant is recommended if you like Chinese food.
Hakka is also located in the Golden Triangle.
Something special is: Restaurant Babe. In this restaurant works the Michelin Star (2) rewarded chef cook Jeff Ramsey. Here you can truly experience the subtleties of progressive, modern kitchen. Serving up Japanese-accented tapas, or “Japas” as Ramsey has coined, Babe is focused on a unique ‘fun dining’ experience as opposed to the structured world of ‘fine dining’.
The menu at Babe offers are an exquisite mix of flavors, textures and temperatures, promising an unparalleled multi-sensory dining experience. True to the tapas concept, the “Japas” menu at Babe is sharing-style, believing that social interaction enhances the overall dining pleasure.
A menu here consists at least of 8 courses and dine with stunning views over the city.
To achieve this restaurant, you have to take a taxi. It is located about 9 kilometers outside the Golden Triangle. Make advance reservations! (Site:

If you want to go to the Beach Club, you have to realize that here are walking around all kind of types, from public women to converted men (to women), that will address to you. It is crowded and cozy. Be careful at the Beach Club !!
If you want to meet working girls in KL then this is the place for you. However it does raided fairly frequently and all of the girls get carted off. If you are a tourist you will be probably be left alone I am sure but it could be embarrassing for you. I am not moralising about this but I thought it only right to point it out if you are thinking of going there for a night out. You will have a great time there if you are looking for a particular type of night on the town but you might get caught up in a little unpleasantness.
Along with the Thai Bistro on the other side of the road are two big clubs with disco, live music with numerous Malaysia girls who want to bring money with you.
