Pisco Bar

Bukit Bintang

Just down the road from rowdy Changkat is calmer-but-cooler Jalan Mesui, and tucked away on Jalan Mesui is Pisco, a Peruvian-slash-Spanish bar that not only serves great ceviche and cocktails but also has a second floor where DJs spin on Fridays and Saturdays.

Havana KL
Bars and pubs

Havana

Bukit Bintang

We’ve spent just as many nights sipping on cocktails at Havana’s alfresco courtyard as tearing up their dance floor upstairs. International DJs sometimes spin upbeat tracks for a predominantly young crowd but their slew of retro hits every Friday and Saturday night seeks to bring the nostalgic and the wallflowers out on to the floor.
