I would love to see more photos of this place,where exactly is the location of this place in bukit bintang?
It was located on the site of today's Sungai Wang Plaza & Bukit Bintang Plaza and was built in the 1930s by a group of businessman. The place has been a centre of social & cultural activities for the KL residents. It then flourished as an entertainment spot after it was sold to Shaw Brothers who then upgraded the place and renamed it BB Park. The place was known for its cabaret & dance halls and it even had a boxing ring, stage shows, theatres, restaurants, exhibitions and game stalls until it was closed down in the early 1970s to make way for the construction of Sungai Wang Plaza. Today BB Park is under the management of Low Yat & Sons Realty Sdn Bhd and has continued to live up to its glory days ........
