Have been here on several occasions with friends. Meals are good and tasty as well as being able to drink Guinness by the pint. Live music every night of the week so it is good if you need to let your hair down.

Finally we have found some live music in KL. They Backyard have a real mix of musicians from local bands, Phillipino bands, jazz etc. We were lucky to have heard a local rock band who were having a come back performance after a10 year break. They were amazing. Unfortunately, for non-smokers it is very smokey. We would have stayed longer... More

Was taken to this place by a local friend because I like live music. The place is buzzing and enjoyable. They have a different live band performing every night from 9:30pm to midnight and in between breaks they play classic videos on a few TV screen close to the stage. There is a small dance floor where patrons occasionally dance,... More

This pub is welcoming different bands with different style and depending on your wishes, the dance floor is yours! There is a good mix of local and expat people. The service is good and the food good for a pub. A relaxing place for Friday and Saturday night.

A neighbourhood pub in Hartamas with live bands. The place is rather small so it can get very loud. Not a place to go if you're looking to chat! It can also get very smokey as the ventilation is not too good. Band on the other hand that plays on Fridays is really great if you like rock music. There's... More

The hospitality by Jerry (owner) and Edmund (Music Director) was 1st class. The band was playing great music. The service was good. I personally had a great chicken sandwich and mutton dish. The atmosphere for 1st time visitors was excellent compared to many places I have been too. I would recommend this pub anytime for good-night out with friends for... More

I've been visiting the 'Yard for many years and what's impressed me most is that publican Jerry Chong and music director Edmund Anthony are very hands-on at the place. Both are there doing what they do best, taking PR into a new level. You always see them sitting with the patrons and making everyone feel welcome. Edmund does a great... More

Typical bar run by musicians: great music, everything else a bit lacking. The food was pretty disappointing (how hard is it to get a burger right?), the beer only slightly chilled, but the atmosphere was electric. The band was rocking, the crowd was jumping and at the end of day, if you're running a music bar, it's all about the... More

The Backyard Pub in KL is synonymous with good live music with some of Malaysia's best musicians gracing their stage over the years; even overseas act like The Platters! A regular hangout for locals and expats alike, the place has an extensive drink list including many popular single malts. With 2 pool tables that is always occupied by regulars; there... More
