Groove is in the heart of Bukit Bintang, now that Shook! Kuala Lumpur has kicked off its Saturday Night Vibes experience. A regular weekend highlight at Feast Village in Starhill Gallery from the 5th of August onwards, Saturday Night Vibes combines its brand new Cirque de Culinaire dining concept with an expertly curated selection of local artists.
“Our lineup for Saturday Night Vibes showcases some of the most talented and special Malaysian musical acts that we have at the moment,” says singer-songwriter Bihzhu – an established local performer who acts as the event’s music curator. “Not only do many of these artists play their own original music, but they’ve also toured overseas and won awards for their performances. They usually play in smaller venues, so this is an opportunity for Malaysian audiences to really connect with them in a larger, gorgeous venue like Shook! All I can say is, be prepared to have your minds blown.”
Emerging acts such as blues songbird Dani and the eight-piece band Ryot Jones will feature in the eclectic, multi-genre musical lineup alongside recognisable names like Reza Salleh and Evelyn Feroza, performing between 9pm and 11pm.
Classic cocktails are a refreshing 1-for-1 Happy Hour accompaniment to a Saturday Night Vibes performance, or you can opt for the RM88 nett Beverage Package, preceded by a complimentary frozen ‘slushie’ Aperol Spritz. But you also shouldn’t miss the Cirque du Culinaire buffet dinner (RM168 per person). A veritable cornucopia of Feast Village’s gastronomic offerings, it’s an opportunity to sample specialties from all eight of its dining venues, including Khushi Spice’s prawn biryani and Sentidos Gastrobar’s seafood paella.
Adding a true party atmosphere to the evening’s culinary circus, a selection of dishes will regularly find their way to diners’ tables to further tease their appetites, such as sushi or freshly shucked Pacific oysters. After you’ve nibbled your way through the dessert bar, with its flambéed crêpes suzette and Bombe Alaska, you’ll probably be more than happy (and a little relieved) to twist and
turn the night away on the dance floor.
