KL Nightlife ~ Towards Changkat Bukit
An avenue on which a
large number of KL City’s most popular bars and restaurants can be found, it
is a trendy place that is great for pub crawling. It is actually located
just behind Jalan Bukit Bintang, so it's very easy to get to – particularly
if you are staying.
The buildings are unique because they used to be pre-war, 2 storey shop-houses that were refurbished and turned into upmarket pubs and restaurants.
Don’t let the looks fool you; the place may look pretty sober during the day, but at night it literally changes into buzzing joints bursting with energy.
The whole street comes
alive with lights, colours, and sounds of music and people having a great
time. It can get very busy here, especially during the weekends and public
There are also restaurants that offer fusion delights such as Werner’s, twenty-one and Frangipani. Aside from a medley of authentic and fusion international cuisine, the street also has some specialty restaurants.
For pork-lovers, there’s Elcerdo, a restaurant specialising in all things pork, and for fans of good old fish and chips, there’s the Magnificent Fish and Chips Bar, touted as the best fish-and-chips restaurant in town - including some classics such as Bangers and mash and Sheppard's Pie, all best consumed with a pint of your favourite beer..
And a short walk away is Jalan Alor, another famous KL city avenue, well known for its hawker stalls and Chinese seafood restaurants.
The area attracts mostly the tourists, expatriate and well-to-do Malaysian crowds which sets it apart from some other night life areas in KL. Best time to go - Any time of day after 11am will give you plenty of options right up until 2 or 3am.
The thing about the place is that it is evolutionary, and ever changing. The various establishments named here might have changed its name as new owners buy up the establishment and change its concept and look. So what is said about a place now might be different by the time you get there.
The really ol’ timers here are – The Havana, Fragipani, The Green Man.
New arrivals at Jalan Ceylon include Finnegan’s who just moved from their old location. Finnegan’s is a proper Irish pub, meaning it serves up some great good and snacks as well as cold pints of beer.
Another classic pub is The
Green Man. There is no blaring music at The Green Man - just the sound of
merry conversation. The Green Man is probably the best place for a business
meeting over a few pints.
It's a quaint little place with great sound system. No Black Tie’s interior is made up of full wood and boasts great acoustics crisp enough for all styles of jazz music as well as classical and blues.
They are also a Japanese
Gastro Bar that offers a limited Japanese snack menu.
