Life’s a beach so let’s get pissed and party….
It’s a right of passage; “You haven’t been to KL until you’ve been to Beach Club” goes its tagline. There’s not a young impressionable tourist that doesn’t stop over in KL and not ask for directions to Beach Club, and as if to cement that reputation, it was voted “Best Bar of Asia” by asiaexpat.com.

It sees plenty of local trade particularly amongst groups of guys and gals who are out on the razz for a hen or stag night or just looking for a piss up and a good time. Reminiscent of a beachside island bar, the rattan furniture, chequered table top and nipah roof aren’t unlike what you’d find on island hot spots in South East Asia, and it’s live cover band and DJs playing commercial music formula means this place is hipster-free. Any heated debates here are likely to be about who pulls or pukes first rather than glitch v dubstep.
Clientele First timers, visiting tourists, expats and locals in search of a wild night out.
Music policy A DJ spins a mix of commercial rnb and pop. A live band plays rock and pop classics as well as contemporary numbers. It can get quite loud so if your ears need a break or your mouth needs some use, hit the terrace outside
Drinks It’s the standard bar fare. Named after islands like Pangkor, promotions change up, so be sure to ask the bartender.
Eats To match the beach bar vibe, the cuisine offered is a mixture of international and Thai cuisine, just like you’d find on he sandy shores of holiday hotspots like Koh Samui or Pattaya.
Dress code Dress to pull. Or not. You’ll probably pull anyway. The door however prefers you make an effort so be sure to pull your smart casual wear out of your suitcase
Cover charge A cover charge is applied. Call ahead to find out how much and when, if you don’t want it to tap into your beer budget.
Open Mon-Sun: 12nn-3am
Parking There’s no valet parking here owing to it’s location at the junction where Jalan P Ramlee and Jalan Sultan Ismail intersect. There’s parking located behind Beach Club, but if you’re concerned about finding your keys let alone finding way home, taxis are almost always queued up outside (causing a late night snarl).
