The US Embassy in Malaysia has issued a security alert for Americans in Kuala Lumpur, advising them to avoid The Beach Club –

Location: The Beach Club located at 924 Jalan P Ramlee, Kuala Lumpur

Event: U.S. Embassy Kuala Lumpur advises all U.S. citizens that The Beach Club located at 924 Jalan P Ramlee Kuala Lumpur is officially designated as an off-limits location to all personnel under Chief of Mission authority, precipitated by a coordinated drink-spiking event targeting foreigners in 2015.  This prohibition was not based on one singular event, but was developed after a careful review of historical events associated with this venue.
