Bangsar located west of the city of Kuala Lumpur is the one
of the trendiest commercial and residential addresses in bustling
KL. It is a preferred destination for those in search of pulsating
nightlife. Bangsar boasts an impressive international mix of
restaurants, pubs, bars, grills, bistros, cafes, fast-food joints
and coffee and ice cream parlors. Its location near an affluent
neighborhood that's home to free-spending expatriates and well-heeled
local executives helps explain its popularity. A large pasar
malam or night market on Sunday evenings adds to the area's
especially festive atmosphere during weekends. Bangsar has a
wide enough array of cuisine to satisfy any taste bud - Chinese,
Indian, Malay, Japanese, Korean, Thai, Mexican, American and
European. Some cater to vegetarians. Night traders generally
open between 5 p.m. to 11.00 pm and the last pubs close at around
2 a.m., but food and drink are available at outdoor stalls until
early morning. One of the must-see, must-try places are Grappa,
an Italian restaurant with a bright, informal atmosphere and
an extensive list of good wines. Open till midnight. Its serve

out Finnegan's. This Irish pub is one of the most popular spots
in the area, exuding warmth with its solid wood furniture, gas
lamps and old maps on the wall. The restaurant prides itself
on its Sherperds Pie, Irish Stew and rack of lamb. The oldest
pub and grill in the area, Kanteena, eschews music. It is quietly
comfortable, and known for its steak at lower prices.

the city. The Science Centre and the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange
is located in Damansara Heights. Another upcoming ares next
to Damansara Height is the Mont Kiara.
