As the number of vintage speakeasies around the city continues to grow, Blue Elephant in Bukit Damansara has truly marked itself as a must-visit nightlife hub. Located along a quiet strip in the upmarket Kuala Lumpur suburb, Blue Elephant’s lengthy list of exquisite cocktails, worldclass guest DJs, blockbuster decoration and karaoke room have fast earned the bar a stellar reputation since opening a two years ago.
Cunningly hidden away behind a bookcase, the bar features a vintage Hollywood motif with human-sized Oscar awards serving as furnishings, black and white photographs of classic movie moments on the walls and director’s chairs lining the bar. It is these tributes to the silver screen and its heroes that mark Blue Elephant out as unique among its peers in the ever-expanding directory of hidden speakeasies.
While resident house DJs NizaMinx and Kuma spin the decks several nights a week, the bar also introduces guest acts regularly to keep the vibe fresh and diverse. Ladies night on a Wednesday night is a particular must-see with free cocktails and electronic rhythms guaranteed to make any midweek party.
Whatever night of the week you choose to go, the bar offers a cool place to relax with some signature drinks, party the night away or take to the stage yourself with the karaoke options. They say an elephant never forgets – and you’re sure to not forget a night at Blue Elephant Bar in Bukit Damansara.
