Excellent music!

I've been twice now, and both times the band has been excellent. Great place to spend an evening! Haven't tried the food yet but it looks like standard pub grub. Service is prompt and friendly. No complaints at all really!

Really nice night pub with live music. Their prices of drinks and meals are more than fair. Place where you have feeling that you are at home.

I have not eaten here but we love to go on the weekends for live music. The bands are great, it is a smoky bar, but great fun and GREAT service.

Fantastic neighbourhood pub with decent food to match. Live bands play almost every day and its a great place to meet up with friends or to relax at the end of the day with a brew or two.

This is a great bar, good atmosphere and best of all the staff are fantastic, very friendly. Especially Elaine, who has provided such a great service to us, always chatty and welcoming and knows us by name. We were looking for somewhere to watch the Wimbledon championships, and this place is perfect. We can sit and watch the match and... More

Came here for a fun Friday evening with friends. There was a great live band playing 80s and 90s hits. Drinks in KL are expensive but they had some great promotions here. And the food is yummy - a mix of Western and local.

This is the place to go to while one is in KL for good drinks,cool company and good live music.The fact that it is in Hartamas makes it quite approachable too with a choice of lots & lots of different food all over.

Backyard has been around for a number of years. Its easy to get parking as its not in the heart of the city but nestled in the suburbs. Its got a good selection of drinks and a small selection of food (for those who need to line their stomach before getting to their drinks), and they have 3 pool tables.... More
