Jonker Street Nightlife

What to Do at Night in Jonker Street

The Friday and Saturday Jonker Walk Night Market in Malacca City’s Chinatown closes down Jalan Hang Lekir to traffic and when the sun goes down here the handful of bars along the boulevard become a mini street party with tables oozing beyond the sidewalks and a mix of live music coursing throughout the area.

Bistro Year 1673

Bistro Year 1673 in Malacca is a cosy all-day establishment with an open-air courtyard, antique furnishing and an ambience that exudes an old school charm. Located on the famous Jonker Street, Bistro Year 1673 offers great western cuisine as well as reasonably priced happy hour promotions for those who want a sip of ice cold beer after a long day, with light music and cultural entertainment in the evenings.

This bistro is housed in a two-storey Dutch heritage building, constructed back in 1673 during the era of Dutch colonisation. This magnificent building was occupied by the Verenige Oostindische Company (VOC), an East India company for the purpose of tax collection for Malacca Port. Taking design cues from pre-war Chinese and colonial architecture, the building is now beautifully restored and is well regarded as the oldest building in Jonker Street. Read More...
