Kuala Lumpur is a popular destination for young people and businessmen. It has plenty of places to party, dine, shop, and drink. During the day, tourists can be found dining in fine restaurants and shopping for bargains. At night, the center of the city is lit up with excitement as people are dancing and drinking at bars and nightclubs. From oldies to contemporary pop music to rave techno music, visitors can find a wide variety of music playing every night. Many locals believe that Heritage Row and Chinatown are the two best hot spots to party when looking for things to do in Kuala Lumpur.
With its mesmerizing neon lights and smell of excitement in the air, Heritage Row has become the hottest place to party in Kuala Lumpur. Along with its lure of being the city’s party central, Asian Heritage Row attracts people because of its rich colonial heritage that it strives to maintain. This area is well known for its historical architecture that has been combined with contemporary enhancements that add elegance and style. The area has many nightclubs that offer a unique dance club experience with dj’s, local singers, local bands, and even foreign acts. A great place to check out is the Sunshine Classic Bar that has live bands that play top 40 hits, retro music, and oldies. For those that are wine connoisseurs, the W Wine Room is a favorite among locals and tourists alike as it has been voted ‘Best Wine Bar in Kuala Lumpur’.
Many people would agree that the nightlife in Chinatown is in a league of its own. Rather than partying at nightclubs and dancing on tables, this area of Kuala Lumpur offers a more laid back kind of partying. The bars in this area like The Beatles Bar and the Reggae Bar have a more chilled-out atmosphere. Just like the names suggest, these bars play music that is good for the soul. The drinks at these bars are relatively cheaper than bars in the city’s center, making them popular for locals, budget travelers, and backpackers. The main attraction in Chinatown is the Chinatown Night Market where people can dine on delicious food made by stall vendors and shop through the night to find bargains on just about everything.
