The Place

Open (and serving beer) 24/7, they feature a pool table and screens and are thus popular for late night European football games and early morning rugby games. Locals prefer this open bar with outside seating and reasonable prices for pizza and drinks to let a successful night out come to an end after the nightclubs have closed.

Bars & Nightlife

Most of the city’s bars are located within reasonable walking distance from one another, making a varied evening out a comfortable option. The majority of the larger hotels have bars with live bands, although the bulk of the more popular haunts are to be found on the waterfront, and on the side streets opposite this strip. KK’s busy nightlife scene is largely based around late-night fun pubs and bars, which generally have live bands playing until late. There are also a couple of decent nightclubs, and most are located close to one another, so it’s easy to find what suits. Below are the best bars and nightclubs in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia:
