Described as the old watering hole for the ‘who’s who’ of Kuala Kangsar, the Idris Club still stand proud of its traditions. It was named after Almarhum Sultan Idris I and is well known amongst the British officers and planters in its heyday. The club building was originally a rest house, and had since undergone many changes. The club has been described (albeit with the somewhat unflattering pseudonym of The Iblis Club) in Anthony Burgess’ Time For A Tiger (part of his Malayan trilogy).
