Kuala Lumpur Nightlife I - Hard Rock Cafe, Nouvo, Beach Club & Rum Jungle
Kuala Lumpur Guide - Nightlife

The Golden Triangle Area

For newcomers to the city, if you want to browse, begin at the corner of Jalan Sultan Ismail, Jalan P. Ramlee and Jalan Pinang (Jalan is the Malay word for street). Here you'll find bars of all kinds of clubs, pubs and bistros.
Among those noted are - Hard Rock Cafe, Nouvo, Beach Club & Rum Jungle

The Hard Rock Cafe
Founded by Isaac Tigrett and Peter Morton, two enterprising and music-loving Americans, the first Hard Rock Cafe (HRC) opened its doors to the public on June 14, 1971, in London, England, HRC was an instant classic attracting droves of customers with its first-rate, casual American fare. With 138 venues in 42 countries, this well-known place needs no introduction.
With it's great live-band performances and the familiar food / menu, you will not have to ask for any item descriptions. The wide choice of Western food here is enticing. The Black Pepper Steak is one of the favourites and it goes really well with the stuffed potato skins. Here, you can easily mingle with lively and cool people, meet other travellers and even a few expats, although in the evening apparently brings in its share of girls for hire. Can get very crowded after 10pm more so on weekends. A variety of alcoholic beverages are served and are rather expensive, even by western standards. The souvenir shop has wonderful items. If you are into big bikes, check out those rotating Harleys at the entrance.

One of KL's interesting Clubs, Nouvo, is located quite near the Beach Club. Music here is the smooth rhythm of R&B and the grooves of hip hop trance/house/dance An added presence is the many International DJ's coming over to perform. Place is usually packed up by locals and foreigners. The club is split into two floors, with a bar on the ground floor and the dance club, 'Sangria', upstairs. Happy hours starts from early afternoons till evenings and after that there is a cover charge to get into the club. Beautiful people abound in this club but make sure you dress to impress.

The Beach Club
Known as the 'in-club in KL', the Beach Club is constantly packed with a mixture of all ethnic locals, tourists, up & coming yuppies, teen wanabees, expats and street-walkers. Following the theme, the exterior of the building is predominantly wood & dried grass. Inside, a tank with swimming sharks looks over the bar and the dance floor. Best to go during weekdays (Sunday -Thursday) as on weekends, it can get too crowded to move around.
The music varies from the 80's / rock & pop hits and then it slowly changes to house / techno / hip hop later in the night depending on the mood of the crowd. Occasionally live bands perform. More of a pick-up joint these days, if you're a solo guy, don't be surprised when you get approached by girls who are "into you". These working girls usually on a temporary entry permit, come from the neighbouring countries. Mostly Filipinas, these ladies will be all friendly and smiles - hoping you'd pay to have sex with them.

Operating Hours - Mon-Sun : 12nn-3am
Happy Hours : 11am-9pm
Cover Charge: Tue & Wed : RM18 inc. 1 drink / Thu: RM22 inc. 1 drink, ladies free; Fri & Sun : 1st drink charge; RM25

Thai Club
The Thai Club with its unmistakable Thai concept roof and use of wood adds warmth to the club. Unlike most other establishments it is more low profile, more casual, more friendly, and definitely more relaxing. Though famed for being crowded at any given night of the week, the patrons are markedly different - they may be less fashionable and more mature but they all seem to be having a really great time. One of the first thing you'd notice is that there are no bouncers, nor a cover charge. This is not the sort of venue where there's much concern for the
latest fashions or dance music mutations. Iinstead the music fare by DJ and local Bands is mainly American and Thai pop together with Chinese and local music. Popular with the Chinese crowd the place starts to fill in at 10pm. One thing though, is that its multiple unisex toilet can be fully occupied and one has to wait patiently for their turn. The upper half of Thai Club is the The Thai Cowboy Cafe, a popular outdoor / indoor watering spot for travelling business people and locals alike wits pool tables and casual atmosphere.

Thai Club & Bistro combine al-fresco dining outside with enjoyable partying inside. The selection of food can be described as a combination of Thai, Local, Western and Chinese at affordable prices, giving everyone the choice of ordering something they're familiar with already or to test their taste buds and try something new. Their dessert menu is not spared of diversity as well, including local, Thai and continental delights.
Probably what draws most of the crowd here are the prices. Majority of the regulars here are the working crowd and their money from a hard day's work is not to be spent with too much ease. Happy Hour promotions are considered one of the best in the heart of KL city with two jugs / a bucket (5 bottled beer) at RM50. They also celebrate Thai cultural events such as the Water Festival with promotions each year

Location - 1, Jalan Tun Perak (Opposite the Beach Club)
Operating Hours - Tue-Sat : 9pm-3am

Rum Jungle
A fast becoming a popular nightspot in KL, it stands out from the rest of the other buildings around it because it looks like a gigantic hut with thatch roofs & garden. Giving it a look close to its name. it is elaborately decorated with trees and plants, wood furnishings and other ornaments hanging from the ceiling. After a few drinks you could easily think you were in a real rainforest. Only a 5-min walk from KLCC, people would come here after work to spend a few more hours to snack & drink. There is a big circular bar serving all sorts of alcoholic & non-alcoholic drinks, and a large dance floor with a platform for the band. Listen to world music such as reggae, Latin, Spanish and even ethnic and tribal percussion. The live band with the resident DJ usually keeps the place rocking 'till the early hours of the morning. It's also a popular chilling spot with the well-dressed Generation X crowd. This is an open air place that also serves food, which is good for smokers & non-smokers.
