Quattro @ Avenue K

Quattro is described as one venue transcending 4 seasons. There's a Winter Bar, Spring Lounge, Summer Restaurant and Autumn Club. At first I didn't plan to go to their soft launching on last Friday night but since my girlfriends are going, and it's a rare occasion that we get to hang out together at some club, I RSVP through facebook for it. Trying my best to make it on time on Friday to meet Gee at her place so that I can hopped on to her car because the free flow is only from 8pm - 10pm, I was still caught in a traffic jam. I guess when it's raining, traffic jams is inevitable.

We only managed to arrive at our destination at 9.00pm considering our poor sense of direction because we had no idea which road to use to get there. The only guide was the twin towers and later, one of our girlfriend had to call her navigator! I do know how to get to KLCC but then again, I can only recognize certain roads (I have been so spoilt that I have been using the SMART tunnel like no one's business to get into KL). Before you have anything to comment about it, let me just say that I'm smart. Why get stuck in a jam while you can pay to avoid it?!!

As soon as we arrived in front of Avenue K, which is just opposite KLCC and in the same row as Corus Hotel, we left the car to the jockeys but the rate is quite expensive. It was RM20. I've never paid anything more than RM15 for jockey parking. Later did we know that if we drive further down, the jockey parking is only RM10. Ceh, what a rip off! When we saw the crowd, we were so turned off because it was damn freaking packed (Note: There were over 2000 people RSVP for the event) but we got lucky. One of our friends knew someone whom is a shareholder there and thus we gained direct entry without queuing and the best thing - we had a nice long table with endless flow of Johnie Walker Black Label the whole night. I think we easily had 5 bottles that night with just 13 of us drinking.

What is so special about this place is that they had 4 different sections for 4 different ambiance and music. We were all the time at Autumn Club, which is a club obviously with DJ spinning and R&B music. The area inside Autumn is the largest among all the other sections.

Then, we went exploring after a glass of booze. We went to the Spring Lounge which is located by the side of the walkway of Avenue K but it's still connected to Autumn. White is used with warm lighting and retro-looking designer chairs. At the corner of the lounge, there is a walkway, not just any ordinary walkway but a raining one! It rains for 5 minutes every hour at the hour itself.

For those who are drunk, you can get washed here! Lol

Summer is a restaurant and it serves a medley of Thai, Indonesian, Vietnamese, Malaysian, French and Italian cuisine. It sounds like Rojak to me! There is a lunch promo going on and 10% discount for lunch from 12-3pm from now till 31st Dec 2008. And as for Winter Bar, temperature is between -5 to 10° C and with occasional snow in the snowing room. That's what I heard because we didn't want to queue and thus no pictures.... The flight of stairs to get to the Winter Bar will probably put you off and if you have someone whom is drunk, you can just rolled him down the stairs because no one ain't going to carry them down! I think that's the weakness of the bar.

Any event is incomplete without some camwhore pictures and thus I shall do the honour of posting them for your viewing pleasure.

Ipoh mari friends - Li Wei, Selina & Hue Gee

Don't look at me, look at the leng chai behind la! So cute hor?!!

Selina gets her Birthday kiss at 12am!

I managed to spot Yat & Thomas Yap too! Sorry, forgot to camwhore with them also. I left the club at about 2am when one of our friends was drunk. We had to send her home and it was also time to leave since I do have to work on Saturday. It was so tiring because I only had a few hours to sleep. Damn it. Why can't I have a 5-days week job?!! Overall, it's a nice place and I think I will return again provided I am given free booze la. Lol...

Yatz: Yalah free booze the best.

Simon: Eh, you were there?!!

KY said...

did I not tell u about tongue sticking out now eiling? :P

foongpc said...

Yes, you are smart to use SMART tunnel. I won't want to be caught in the jam too and we know KL always have traffic jam when it pours.

You are lucky to get into the club without queueing. If I need to queue, I would definitely leave!

I don't think the flight of stairs to the Winter Bar is a weakness. It would be fun to see a drunk man rolling down the stairs! LOL

About the leng chai in the photo, how come you didn't chat him up, meh? : )

UncleJosh said...

lucky you~! i got stucked in smart tunnel for an hour the other time... T_T
sob sob....

suituapui said...

Ya, the smart tunnel's anytime better than getting stuck in the traffic jam to get to Bukit Bintang...provided u do not get flooded in. crowded! I prefer nice cosy places with fewer people...maybe because I'm old liao! LOL!!!

P.S.: I can;t roll my tongue!

-eiling- said...

KY: That picture is for you! Lol

Foongpc: If I have to queue, i still would but depends on how long the queue was. I didn't know the leng chai was caught on the camera until I saw the photos later. So wasted la!!

Unclejosh: Maybe sometimes la during peak hours.

STP: Really, you can't roll your tongue?!! It's ok, you're not the only one. I also prefer not too crowded or balring music for a get together with friends. Clubbing is only 1 form of releasing my stress.

KY said...

wah so lovely ah thinking of me when u take photos? lol

-eiling- said...

KY: Yes lo. Happy leh

KY said...

oOo very happy! lol
