The best nightclubs in KL to get the party started

It’s Friday night. You’ve had a long week and the weekend is beckoning deliciously. It’s time to let loose and shake off the tension you’ve accumulated and just let it all go. How does one let loose? Allow us to make a suggestion: hit up these nightclubs in KL.

There’s something cathartic about heading to a nightclub with its loud, blaring music and dancing your socks off. Everyone is there to have a good time and nobody cares how you look like dancing — unless, of course, you’re there for the hunt. These nightclubs in KL also often play host to international DJs that will guarantee you good, interactive music to party the night away with your friends.

But not all nightclubs play thumping EDM. There are several nightclubs in KL that offer different kinds of music for niche music enthusiasts. SIX, for instance, often brings in local indie artists to be at the decks, while clubs such as Groove the Disco play some pretty vintage tunes from the 70s to the 90s. It’s perfect for those who enjoy a different sort of music to groove to.

You know what they say: “Work hard, and party harder.”

1. Elysium Kuala Lumpur

You might remember them from before when they occupied a rooftop space in Wisma Goldhill. They have since moved to Jalan Mesui—not too far away—but maintain the same vibe of electronic music and a wide drinks selection. Be sure to head there during happy hours and, for the ladies, on ladies’ night to get the best deals.

2. Fuze Club Kuala Lumpur

Location-wise, Fuze Club is at an excellent spot in the Golden Triangle. In fact, it’s right behind Pavilion KL. It’s also one of the larger freestanding nightclubs in KL, which means that there is an abundance of space inside. In here, techno and EDM reign free as the music of choice. One of the main attractions of this club is its laser lights, which are mind-blowing. Look out for their themed nights for extra fun.

3. Groove the Disco

Don’t like EDM? Prefer dancing to the groovy tunes of the 70s and 80s, or 90s R&B music? Then Groove the Disco will be your happy place. This is one of the rare clubs in KL that plays oldies—the 90s were two decades ago—and even looks the part with its disco balls and glowing mosaic floors.
