5 Best Nightlife Experiences in KL – Prepare for the time of your life

When night falls, the city of Kuala Lumpur comes to life with all its fun nighttime activities running at full speed. Suppose you are visiting for a short period or for an extended stay. In that case, the nightlife in this city is very unlikely to disappoint.


Take a trip to Changkat Bukit Bintang

Suppose you are looking for the epicentre of nightlife in Kuala Lumpur. In that case, you need to head towards Changkat Bukit Bintang, which is now well regarded as the party venue to be at. The lively and diverse clubbing scene that can be enjoyed in this part of the city makes it a magnet that attracts those who visit Malaysia from various and sometimes unique backgrounds.
It is ideal for meeting new people, enjoying a few drinks, and dancing the night away. There is truly something for everyone with posh cocktail lounges, sleepy whisky bars, and plenty of resto-bars. This area is also a big attraction for international DJs and band performances. As such, there is rarely a dull moment when you are partying the night away.


Don't miss out on Bangsar

If you are an expatriate looking to meet some people, Bangsar is where you need to head. This is a famous stomping ground for the ex-pat community and also offers plenty of nightlife locations.
A 10-minute drive from a serviced apartment in Kuala Lumpur, such as the Somerset Kuala Lumpur, is a must-visit location!


Go on a rooftop bar crawl

The stunning skyline of Kuala Lumpur is not just for show; high above the ground, there exists and another sphere of life that enjoys well-made drinks and spectacular views.
One of the first places that many look out for a good rooftop bar head towards is the Marini's 57. This exclusive Italian ristorante is on the 57th floor of the Petronas Tower 3 and is split into 3 sections. With a dining area, a bar, and plenty of art deco furniture, this bar offers the best of a high-end lifestyle.
Alternatively, you can jump across to the Luna Bar and then the Sky Bar to end the night on a high note.


Visit Petaling Street

While the idea of partying is quite enjoyable, there is a high chance you will be worn out at the end of the week. So, if you want a nighttime experience that will temper the thrills and exertion of clubbing, then the best thing to do would be to head down to Petaling Street in Chinatown in Kuala Lumpur.
This after-dark market is devoid of the glitz and flashing lights of the club scene but is bursting with character. With a spectrum of small shops, speakeasies and cheap eats, this market thrives in the night.


Jalan Alor

If you are keen to make good progress in eating what Kuala Lumpur offers, then Jalan Alor is where you need to be. This road is a hotspot for foodies and is well known for the variety of hawker stalls and restaurants that stay open all night. It is essential to try to get there a little early as the road is bound to be jam-packed with people if you arrive later on in the night.
