Go one night and enjoy the light evening, drink some wine and listen to the fine JAZZ, and enjoy the moment .. not packed with "NOISE" but music

One of the best live music bars I have attended. Don't go for food. Most performances start at 10 pm. The singer at the show attended sang Jazz, R&B ...and she was awesome! A must-visit :)

The best live music venue in KL. Jazz, Funk. Mostly local talented musician who travelled abroad. Reasonably priced. Nice ambiance. Not smokey. Good aircond. Good service good wine list. Been here many times. Entrance fee. Kl needs more venues like this.

They have live music and the band is really good. They play jazz and it's very relaxing to have a drink or dinner with such a good music. I feel they are a little bit too overpriced as for Malaysia but it's still worth to pay cover fee and enjoy the band.

Went to the 10 pm show here last night. It was a little more expensive than we were expecting, but such a great experience! The band playing were incredible, and I'd totally recommend checking this place out.

The music is top notch. It's like being in New Orleans, but in Malaysia! The food is ok. Definitely eat before you come here! The ambiance is very intimate with great spots throughout the cozy bar. Great location with several options for eating. It doesn't hurt that it was a two minute walk from our hotel. I loved seeing other... More

This has always been my best go-to venue for jazz music in Kuala Lumpur. The ambience is intimate and the sound is amazing. A wonderful place to enjoy good music and company.

Went there with a friend, the entree fee is RM42. Usually the venue will include a drink but not this one ( quite disappointing, coz the price is a little bit expensive). The second half of performance is not so jazzy, more like R&B. Overall, I enjoyed the atmosphere and the performance. Other than that, it's a little bit pricy.

Tucked in a little facelifted shophouse on Jalan Mesui (the quieter side of Bukit Bintang), is this gem of a jazz club. Every time I am in Kuala Lumpur, I make it a point to visit No Black Tie. The music & acts here are well curated, from stellar local artists to foreign acts. The 2-tiered performance space is so... More

Space is very tight and cramped. Tables are small, walking space is narrow. Although it is supposedly a non-smoking establishment, they allowed customers to smoke inside. Staff were indifferent when we pointed this out to them. Within such an enclosed and cramped area, this was torture for me and my non smoking friends. Non alcoholic drinks : NBT Special ice... More
