Kota Kinabalu Nightlife, Malaysia


Selamat Datang (Welcome)

Kota Kinabalu is considered as the gateway for tourists when it comes to the states of Borneo and Sabah (states of Malaysia). Kota Kinabalu (also known as K.K. within Malaysia) is also the industrial hub for Eastern Malaysia and the sixth largest city for Malaysia.

Nigh life in Kota Kinabalu can be defined in one word as ‘furious’. There are many places to enjoy after dusk and one is not wrong if he says that life starts after 9 PM in Kota Kinabalu. You might find many people talking about dull night life in Kota Kinabalu but we are rest assured that they haven’t visited the city and you must not believe those who have the least experience.

Tiffnies happens to be the best place for night lovers. They are famous for their live bands and discos. If you are lucky then you might get the chance to enjoy the bikini nights of Tiffnies. If you like drinking then Waterfront is the place to go. There are many new places in and around Waterfront which one can enjoy.

Now let us talk about the most famous pub of Kota Kinabalu, the Hyatt Hotels' Shenanigan's Fun Pub. It has the traditional Irish design plus the friendly and exotic atmosphere in this pub makes you fall in love with it. This pub regularly invites international performers to perform live in their pub and with snacks and cocktails around you will want to come back before time.

Again, for those who love to drink we suggest them to visit Sutera Harbour Hotel which is located next to a beach thus making it the perfect place to mingle with your significant other.

Is your stomach empty? Then ask the taxi driver to take you towards Tanjung Aru beach. This place becomes a must visit due to the barbeque chicken, coconut, fruits, etc. which are served on the beach side. Next option could be Beach Front next to Promenade Hotel. Another beach side place to enjoy food.

Planning to enjoy something different for your supper? Then we suggest you to opt for Sedco Complex which is famous in the city for its atypical seafood.

One can look for the multiple clubs in the downtown area or may contact the locals to enjoy late night parties in their houses.
