Travel, Teach, Live in Asia
Bangsar is mainly an expatriate area of Kula Lumpur and while it is not the most up market of the expatriate areas in Kuala Lumpur, there are some stunning houses in the area along side up market shopping centers and car shops. Among the auto shops here are Audi, Alfa Romeo, Mini, Volkswagen and Mercedes Benz and if you are a car enthusiast look carefully as you drive through here and you might just see a couple of Ferraris or Austin Martin DB9s in the windows.
While there are bigger clubs nearer Kuala Lumpur and KLCC, this is one of the main places that the youth of KL come out at night to play and get drunk. The Malay don’t drink so it will mainly be expatriates, Chinese Malay and Indian Malay here. There is a wide range of bars, restaurants and shops here. This is a safe area and taxis too and from Bangsar are not a problem.
Among the places worth a mention are the Red Chamber which delivers great cocktails in a comfortable atmosphere and offers Shi Sha if you are interested. The Castle is your run of the mill night club, but on Friday nights it is very busy. Finnegan’s Irish Pub is also worth checking out, but drinks here are very expensive.
Bangsar is also a great place to go if you are looking for a restaurant. All types of food are covered here, from Indian, Chinese, traditional Malay and Thai.
