KUALA LUMPUR, 21 May 2013 – After a month of major facelift, Laundry reopens its doors with a brand new look, feel and whole new attitude. To celebrate the re-opening of the popular restaurant and bar, Laundry recently held a re-opening party for around 300 invited guests which included business partners, regular patrons, and members of the media.
According to Laundry’s Marketing Manager, Llew Marsh, “The launch party is the perfect opportunity to engage with our regulars, as well as new patrons to showcase what the all-new Laundry has to offer. In terms of design, we have given the place a more modern look and feel while maintaining its classic charm. Our design concept is vintage chic and somewhat based on the spirit of The Great Gatsby meets Mad Men.
Laundry Re-opens with a Grand Launch Party
Everything in the new Laundry has been custom made, from the upholstery to vintage wallpaper, the lighting fixtures to the table lamps”. New highlights of Laundry include a designated entrance walkway, with a Hollywood style marquee, a permanent DJ console, a more focused stage with more than 30 mirror balls of varying sizes above it, a spanking new marble top bar, private booths with leather seats, 2 classic barber chairs, 2 VIP lounge areas, light fixtures from Spain and a visually engaging RGB wall designed by Carnovsky, a Milan based artist/designer duo comprising of Francesco Rugi and Silvia Quintanilla.
Throughout the night, many female guests also took the opportunity to glam-up with a complimentary make-over provided at a ‘glamour station’, with free flow of drinks and sumptuous canapés offered to all.
The highlight of the evening was a two-part performance by the band Tabloid featuring Sharon Chong and guest performer Nick Davis, who was specially brought in by Laundry for the special occasion. The duo kept the guests entertained with their selection of cover music featuring hit songs from the 70’s till the 80’s era and modern Electronica music.
In between each set, guest DJ Buddy Love took over for several sessions spinning favourite R&B tunes, while resident DJ Jason took over the deck to continue the celebration well into the night, making it a memorable event for everyone to enjoy the brand new Laundry.
