Was lucky enough to attend their preview last Thursday.
This club is going to be FANTASTIC.
Let me tell you why.
First of all, it’s in P freaking J. A hundred gajillian points for that. Granted we’ve always had clubs in the PJ area, but none of it can ever be quite like this one. Euphoria is like Zouk and Velvet, only so much BETTER. Let me count the ways.
This if the first time I could actually breathe without choking in here. Plus the higher ceiling makes the place look humongous and spacious. Actually the main reason why people can breathe in here most probably because….
2. NO SMOKING IS ALLOWED
Smoking is only allowed in the outdoor lounge area and Designated Smoking Areas, which is basically a room for smokers to hang out and smoke each other to death. I find it very difficult to describe to you in any language how insanely ecstatic I was when I found out about this. If I’m not mistaken, this brilliant concept was brought over from Singapore, where they had recently banned people from smoking inside clubs. Clubs in Singapore had to either build a special room for smokers, or smokers had to take their dirty business outside. This is seriously the best damn thing that could happen to all non-smokers who love to club and would like to be able to keep breathing.
3. Excellent music
But what about the music I hear you cry? Well if you’re anything like me, you are fed up over the fact that the clubs in Malaysia only spin you three types of music. 1) Overplayed RnB & rap. 2 ) Old cheesy Retro. 3) Hard feng tau trance and techno. Who can forget those annoying wannabe-Timbaland DJs who like to scratch their CDs badly? Ugh. Do local clubs share the same CDs? If I’m going to pay a cover charge of RM40 and one stupid drink just to listen to you playing Ice-Ice Baby or Bon Jovi or the fucking Umbrella song I might as well just stay home and listen to the radio FOR FREE. Euphoria plays PROPER dance music. They do play RnB and retro but they REMIX it with infectious dance back beats which makes you want to get up and DANCE. Euphoria actually feels like a proper London Dance Club. Unfortunately, the dance music greatness isn’t very consistent because they do bring in the local DJs to spin, and when that happens, oh hello same old boring overplayed shitty songs. But when it’s good, it’s GOOD.
4. Tasteful, classy interior
It definitely looks better than a cave or a blob of cement. Everything is like a “wow” or “woah” or “holy wtf”. The deco is really amazing. Chain-mail curtains. Custom-made chairs and tables. Cozy sofa and pillows. Carpeted floors. Ambient lighting. Five-star hotel looking toilets. Running-water wall decos. Glass-floor bridge (A must try! But not when drunk, or when wearing skirts or dresses, seriously girls what were you thinking?). Every part of the club looks different, it gives you the illusion of your “own little space”. I absolutely love that they put in so much effort to make this place look so pretty and not make it look like just another regular dance club.
5. Two dancefloors
Wooden dance floors, Seriously, who makes them like that anymore? Everybody’s into cutting-costs and cement these days. And as if making them wooden isn’t wonderful enough, it VIBRATES to the beat of the music.
This is the ouch part. Somebody’s gotta pay for all the expensive, classy deco, awesome systems and good music isn't going to play by itself so it's obviously going to be you and me. I heard that it’s going to be a bit more expensive than your usual Velvet to open a regular bottle of whiskey. But Cover charge as follows: RM50 on Fridays and Saturdays, RM40 on Wednesdays and Thursdays, RM20 on Sundays to Tuesdays. Admission is inclusive of 1 drink.
But if you're younger than 21, don't bother trying to get in. ;)
This place is seriously going to ROCK it big time.
Official Opening's on 2 July. Guess where I'd like to be then?
