Weekends or Weekdays, Kuala Lumpur is the City that never really sleeps. As students we work hard and well, we deserve to play hard. What better way to go crazy and just forget about all of your worries besides dancing it out? I know a lot of you have other personal escapades but clubbing is an adventure you can experience as a team especially in uni! It’s the perfect years of your lives, you’re old to have fun, yet young enough to not have responsibilities to stop you from doing it!
Don’t stop reading just because you’re below 21. Before I go on I just have to mention that ladies! You have more privileges here when you go for clubbing, Wednesdays and Thursdays are your night! Free booze and free entry, so being broke isn’t a reason not to go out for my ladies out there.
Alright, so let’s get to the bottom of this. There are two areas in KL where youngsters go most to for clubbing as far as I’ve experienced from being here, one is an area called “Trec” (details of address will be given below).
Trec is basically an area with bars and clubs all around it. It’s where the infamous Zouk is! I’m pretty sure if you guys have asked around about the night life in KL, Zouk would be one of the names mentioned. The reason Zouk is a hyped up club in KL is because it is a popular branched club from Singapore. Unlike other clubs, Zouk has sections or rooms with different themes to it. One area would play techno music, one would play EDM, one would play some chilled out jams. The only problem is that Zouk has tightened up their security as of late, so you’re pretty much gambling unless you’re above 21. For Zouk, Ladies Night is only on Wednesdays, but do refer to their site for other events on their website. But don’t worry if you don’t get into Zouk, there are pretty chill bars around that place and a pretty okay club called Le Noir. You could also have a slightly more chilled out night at Como or Reggae Bar.

The other area is called Changkat — this is an area close to Bukit Bintang and I would say it’s slightly more tropical and less modern than Trec. The average crowd in Chankat tends to be slightly older, though. The main club that people go to there is called Zion, which is probably the biggest club in Changkat. Oh! And if you’re on a budget there is this Bar near by Zion called ‘Rabbit Hole’ where shots are at a very reasonable price and there was this promo for 6 shots of Jagger at a very very reasonable price!

Other than Changkat and Trec, there are certain areas in Bangsar like Nexus mall that has sports bars, the one I have specifically in mind is called ‘Hall Of Fame’ in this bar they have games like darts, beer pong and other fun drinking games. Damangsara is also known to have some bars and clubs which I’m not so familiar with. Still yet to explore. I’ll write reviews on it once I get the chance to look around that area. But for now I guess these will do.
- ALWAYS bring your IC or ID or Passport
- Bring AT LEAST 50RM
- Pre-drink with your own bottles if you’re on a budget
- ALWAYS go with a group to stay safe from the creep
- Dress Up! No flip-flop guyss ( avoid white shoes, it’ll be a painful experience, trust me! )
- When Grab has a surge, check Uber ( vice versa ) Try to enable payment with your credit/debit card! No one wants to pay for your ride when you’re a hot mess.
- DONT STOP DANCINGGG! Have fun & Stay Safe guyss! <3
