Best places to visit at night in KL - A backpackers guide!

Kuala Lumpur is a busy and lively city with a vibrant nightlife. With big fancy bars and restaurants lining the Golden Triangle, nightclubs and famous karaoke clubs in Chinatown, Bangsar, and Hartamas; there's plenty for everybody! Here is a list of places to check out after dusk!


Traditional coffee shops!

If you are looking for a peaceful night out, stop by a local coffee shop, or the Kopitiam, where locals go for Chinese food, tea, or coffee late at night. Sitting by the side roads, watching the night go by, is really an enjoyable experience. You can find these places close to a hotel in Bukit Bintang Kuala Lumpur. For instance, you can check out properties like The Kuala Lumpur Journal Hotel situated close to places you can visit in the late evenings!


Pisco bar

Pisco Bar is an exotic, modern, and stylish restaurant and bar. Pisco Bar is the place to go if you're craving either Spanish or Peruvian tapas. The place is open every day from 5 p.m. (apart from Mondays). You can stay the evening here listening to live music and DJs tunes as you eat. There's plenty of space to move as well as dance on the floor. This hidden gem can be found in the fashionable Jalan Mesui Street neighbourhood.


Whisky Tango Foxtrot

Whisky Tango Foxtrot is the place to go if you want to taste great wine, a whisky, a quality cigar and the likes. The range of cigars and whiskies on the menu would appeal to cigar and whiskey connoisseurs. Anyone can visit this trendy bar, but if you want to take it a step further, you also have an opportunity to become a member! You can enjoy all the perks it entails.


Whipped into place

Maybe the stylish, drinking, wild nightlife is really not your thing, and all you want to do is rest and chill while still having a good time. Whipped Into Place is the perfect place to visit then. WIP is a bar as well as a restaurant having an ambience of a beach resort. WIP will become your new favourite hangout in Kuala Lumpur thanks to its high-quality service and a large range of beverages. WIP, which is located in Bangsar Shopping Centre, has both outdoor and indoor seating areas where you can chill and enjoy one of their signature drinks and meals.



The Reggae Bar located on Jalan Tun H S Lee in Chinatown is a common hangout spot for backpackers. It's a very well known day and night bar that has a laid-back and cool vibe throughout the day but transforms into a party hotspot at night. The place serves both Malay and Western cuisine, and Happy Hour is typically from 6 to 10 p.m. Drinks are priced at 8 RM and are ideal for shisha or a game of pool. It will not get better than this! Therefore, don't miss out on it, if you don't want to regret it!
