MHB’s Stephanie Lim and Andy Kho joined Veron and I for the grand launch of Capricorn KL on 11 September 2014 featuring the DJ Mag World Top 100 ranked Stafford Brothers from Australia as the special act for night. Capricorn KL occupies the lot where Prodigy KL used to be which was the lot where Butter Factory KL used to be.
Before I proceed further, FYI all the photos with the MHB watermark were shot with the Sony a5100. The rest of the photos (non watermark) are courtesy of Capricorn KL. As you can see, the Sony a5100 performs pretty well in low light, with very good auto-focus accuracy. More info on the cam at http://www.sony.com.my/product/ilce-5100l?cid=[a5100]_MY_-_Alpha_a5100:sem:goog:MY:txt_brand:_sony_alpha_5100&pkw=_sony_alpha_5100
On the ground floor is dance floor and high-tables in the centre while there are sofas on the sides of the room which is great news for girls especially who can chill and relax before and after hitting the dancefloor. The island bar from the previous club which previously took up a lot of room in the middle of the club has been moved to the side while the stage has been extended with a catwalk so that performers can be nearer the crowd.
The first floor is designed to be a massive balcony overlooking the action on the ground floor and has a bar of its own as well as lots of sofas to accommodate the VIP crowd who’s there to be seen and party. Here’s where you’ll see bottles of champagne being ordered by the dozens and brought over to the customers with a special ritual by the champagne ambassador girls.
The sound system has been setup to give clubbers a sound-sensory experience which gives the feel of a rave, and this is matched by a high-tech visual system which also adds to the ambience. Music wise, resident DJs, the trio of VDJ X Marc, DJ Edz & M.I.O, who dub themselves “THE PROJECT”, will be on the decks on most non-guest DJ nights.
General Manager of CAPRICORN KL, Eric Loo said, “The music is just part of the party. It is the ambience, lights and service which makes for an unforgettable party. For high rollers who prefer anonymity, the balcony-style upper floor offers VIP patrons a chic, exclusive ambience with its own bar and dance floor overlooking the club scene below.”
