The Bangsar Baru Pasar Malam is located along the slip road off Jalan Maarof in Bangsar Baru just in front of the Mosque here. It replaces the former pasar malam which used to be along Jalan Telawi 1, Telawi 3 and Telawi 5 on Sundays.
This was necessary to solve the already congested traffic here on the weekends and now with a larger and spacious land, it is more accessible and one can park at Bangsar Village Shopping center and take a short stroll out to the market.
The Bangsar Pasar Malam starts around 5pm and goes on until around 10 or 11pm depending on the availability of supplies. As it is catered to the Bangsar residents who are known to be from the higher income group, many perceive that despite being a pasar malam, the items sold in Bangsar Baru Pasar Malam are slightly costlier as compared to other pasar malams in Klang Valley. Hence, be prepared to pay a bit more for the food here as well as the clothes and other items too. One of the highlights of Bangsar Baru Pasar Malam is the Satay stall which is very popular among the local residents around Bangsar as well as in the surrounding suburbs.
The Taman Connaught Pasar Malam is known to be the longest Pasar Malam in the Klang Valley if not the country. Located along Jalan Cerdas in Taman Connaught in Cheras, it comes alive on Wednesdays and it will create a long traffic jam along the highway located adjacent to the market.

You will be able to buy all types of items here that include various types of dishes and food while there are also clothings, souvenirs, snacks, drinks and everything else under the Malaysian skies. The main criticism about Pasar malam Connaught is that there seemed to be too many repeats which means that if you miss the fried chicken stall the first time, instead of walking all the way back, you will most likely find it again not too long later. One of the more popular stalls at Pasar malam Connaught is the ‘Stinky Tofu’ stall which you can smell the ‘stench’ a few meters before approaching the stall.
