An Evening of Live Music in KL

or expats out there who don't know what else they can do on quiet evenings, you may want to have a musical adventure. Oftentimes, me and hubby are trying to see what new things we can discover in KL. Also for us, it's time to enjoy our last few weeks of bliss before baby comes!

So after hearing good reviews from friends about this place called No Black Tie, we decided to check it out. True enough, it was definitely worth the time and we had a nice evening. We attended one of the Bossa Nova evenings where they featured a good bossa nova singer. I was in heaven. I love, love Bossa Nova music and the first 2 songs she sang really blew me away. On other evenings, they would feature Jazz and other type of music.

On another evening I tried to drop by with some colleagues to listen to some music and chillout after work. The nice thing of this place is that they start the live music at 9:30pm, which is not too late. Unlike other places I have researched, the live music/band usually starts at 1030pm, and at some restaurants they only have the live stuff during Thurs/Fri/Sat evenings. No Black Tie plays music every night. You can check out their schedule at their website

Their cover charge is quite reasonable at RM20 per person. On some occasions, they will charge RM 40 per person because it's a special night. All you need to do is pay the cover charge then you can opt to just order drinks while listening to music. They do serve food also, but we opted to eat somewhere else. Especially as the Jalan Ceylon area has tons of nice restaurants. You can even park at No Black Tie and eat across the street (right in front of them you will find an Italian restaurant called Delucca). If you are not concerned about budget, I would recommend you and your friends to eat at the different restaurants around the area, especially these :
1. Nero Vivo - Italian restaurant
2. El Cerdo - serves crispy pork like no where else! really nice pork place with European setting ambience
3. Neroteca - if you love cheese platter with some parma ham and great wine, then this is the place for you!
4. Le Bouchon - if you love French food (especially their duck .. yummy!) A bit pricey but good quality real french food

So the next time you and your friends don't know what to do on evenings, you can try to check this place out. The place is small and cozy ... just right for a night of music!
