Kuala Lumpur Nightlife

Pubs, bustling bars, pumping clubs and karaoke lounges offer lots of after-dark entertainment in a city that never sleeps. Indeed, visitors will find one of Asia's best nightlife scenes when they explore Malaysia's capital. And though Kuala Lumpur is predominantly Muslim, its cosmopolitan nature allows for alcohol to be widely available.

The city centre has some of KL's trendiest clubs and most eccentric bars. Bukit Bintang is another of the city's most popular areas for night-time entertainment, where visitors can dine at great restaurants or enjoy vibrant bars.

Tourists looking for a quieter night out should stop at a karaoke bar - a staple in Malaysian society. Singing is entirely optional and it's great fun to simply watch. Local theatres and cabarets are also an option, and cinemas show contemporary English, Malay, Chinese, Hindi and Indonesian movies.
