Located northeast of city center between Jalan Tasek and the Utara-Selatan Highway, the neighborhood of Bandar Baru Medan is arguably the most consistent nightlife destination in Ipoh. With dozens of bars, karaoke joints, and nightclubs ripe for ironic fist-pumping, this is a rare combination of fun choices that you won't find anywhere else in Ipoh. You'll usually find a packed house and good music at BarRoom, Lavish, and Baliz, while cocktails are the draw at Barbeza, and the Oriental decor at Jiu makes it a super-cool hangout. Although it'll be a taxi ride from the more culturally relevant "old town", Bandar Baru Medan thrives due to such a high concentration of drinking and dancing opportunities; it's not to be missed if you're seeking more excitement after a day's adventures.
