Neatly located in the Waterfront complex, this is the best true night club in the city centre. B.E.D. stands for "Best Entertainment Destination" and is one of Kota Kinabalu’s biggest club / pub / live entertainment venues. Apart from the main floor immediately in front of the raised stage, B.E.D. also has a members-only area, as well as more private areas, which can be closed off for larger private gatherings.

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:
