CLOSED on June 16th, 2015.

This gay-owned bar/club & restaurant is one of the most sophisticated venues in Kuala Lumpur with a large gay crowd on Friday nights.

Frangipani’s modern chic interior and cool music vibes at the bar attract a full house of guys sipping cocktails, lounging around and dancing until the early hours of the morning.

Don’t ignore the stylish basement restaurant which offers some deliciously imaginative food.

    “I've visited this place on friday nights a couple of times & the ambiance is pretty mediocre. Most of the guys frequenting the place are already in relationships. I also found the crowd to be snooty & unfriendly.“

  2. Not surprise this place closed down!

    “If the regular crowd really spend big money on drinks and food, I don't see any reason for this place to close down. Posers dominate this place, looks like they don't have much to spend?“

  3. WTF

    “Great looking venue but the upstairs bar staff are rude, refused to make cocktails and would take your order then run off and spend 20 mins chatting and serving the locals. Overall it's the only nice gay bar in KL - a shame the staff are not good.“

  4. Not worth the money

    “The only reason this place is popular on Friday nights is because there is no other places to go in Kuala Lumpur. Kuala Lumpur gay night life is pathetic and it shows here in Frangipani. Expensive entrance fee and drinks, mediocre atmosphere with lots of desperate gays pretending to be above and beyond other gays. If you're looking to meet guys trying so hard to be cool and sophisticated, you'll love this place.“

  5. Overpriced for nothing special

    “Came to this place as so many websites recommended. Entry MYR 40.00, in exchange for a pre-mixed drink (long island) or a draught beer. A cocktail costs MYR 39.00++, same price as Sydney & Melbourne :|. Most people coming in group share a cocktail jug MYR 70.00++ (buy 1 get 1 free)

    Interior design is not very special with old chaise lounges & bar stools around. Lack of decorating lights. Has a corner for people who want a bit intimacy. Also has some big sofas for big group of friends.

    Bar staff are friendly, a plus.“

  6. Very New York - when it comes to cocktail prices

    “Overpriced for an unsurprising gay club experience. Frangipani knows it's the only game in Kuala Lumpur when it comes to upscale gay bars so expect to be charged an arm and a leg - 30 ringgit cover charge on Friday night gets you a bottle of Carlsberg if beer is your drink of choice. Expect to pay 40 ringgit or more for each cocktail. The staff are a bit on the snotty side and will pester you toorder more drinks. The music is chill and not really for dancing all night. Crowd is the usual mix of friendly types along with the S&M (stand-and-model) bunch.“

  7. “If you fancy a fun night out with friends, sipping on a sweet lychee martini and dancing to come cool beats, then this is one place to be. Classy yet not too pretentious, this dimly lit bar is a launchpad for many guys to a wilder weekend.

    Dine in the restaurant downstairs or nearby. After you party, a few stalls selling 'Lok-Lok' or boiled skewers appear outside. A perfect way to soak in the excessive alcohol and to sober up before you head home.“

  8. “I went for the first time to Frangipani last Friday (29 June 2012). The music was a bit boring but can still dance to it.. had lovely drinks, a bit expensive but worth the price.. not a place for hookups... mostly are gay couples.. hard to find singles.. going again next week.. ;)“

  9. “Visit: 20 April 2012
    Country: UK/USA

    Ignore the previous comment, if you are looking for something camp and want to listen to cheesy pop music, this is not the place for you. Go to Blueboy instead.

    Frangipani, has a really good vibe and good tunes. Chunky uplifting house music upstairs and very chilled out lounge music downstairs. The place has a very New York lounge feel to it. Very friendly and up for it crowd. Upscale, hip bar/club. Had a great time dancing the night away and will be back on my next trip to KL.“

  10. “I was there on the 3rd of march 2012. I am from Singapore and this was my first time for clubbing at Frangipani. To be honest I wasn't really impressed with the so called 'Gay Night' title. I had a great drink but I did not have a single move on the floor. The DJ was playing 'acid jazz' kinda sounds but it's totally NOT for gays. They should really know what is gay night sound to play to be. Hope they play better music in the future.“
