KLites love their nightlife districts – a clutch of good clubs and bars on the same road means you can take the party from one place to another with minimum inconvenience. Right now the most popular area is still Changkat Bukit Bintang, a tangle of roads just off the main Bukit Bintang shopping district. New club The Establishment has made a name for itself with its good music policy and cooler than thou clients; down the road twentyone is a small bar with excellent, modern food and creative cocktails. Or swing by Spanish bar Pisco for golden oldies and their famous ginger shots.

Malaysians love to have a good time, and you’ll find many of Kuala Lumpur’s best nightlife spots in the neighborhood of Bukit Bintang. Nightlife in Kuala Lumpur is a mix of pubs, clubs and everything in between. For those who love clubbing, visit Zouk, which also has an outpost in Singapore. It’s perpetually packed with partiers, and DJs spin all night. Beer aficionados will love Craft Brews, a brew pub where just 15,000 barrels of beer are produced per year. Try the Snake Dog IPA or the Monster Green Lager. Jazz enthusiasts should grab a spot at No Black Tie, where you can see everything from live jazz performances to spoken word poetry readings. Bedroom serves craft cocktails to CEOs, models, expats and wealthy locals. Décor bar is somewhere between a well-designed flat and a New York interior design store.
