W XYZ At Aloft, KL Sentral

Aloft Hotels, that swanky new hotel in KL Sentral, recently launched its sizzling smash-hit “Live at Aloft Hotels” live music platform series. Starting from 31 May 2013, Aloft will showcase the hottest on-the-verge artists and bands at Aloft Beijing, Haidian; Aloft Bengaluru Whitefield; Aloft Bangkok – Sukhumvit 11; andAloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral, offering the latest trend in music - with Aloft’s buzzing W XYZ bars serving as the world stage.

Aloft Hotels has been conquering the globe with its game-changing concept and
groundbreaking initiatives in design, tech, and pop culture,” said Vincent Ong, Asia Pacific,
Senior Brand Director, Sheraton, Westin, Aloft, Four Points by Sheraton and Element.

Basically, emerging local artistes are given a platform to perform in a 5 star hotel setting, driven with the assistance of networking and social media sites, so at the entrance of the bar is a huge hashtag screen, which I've never seen before.  But basically, whoever uploads a picture or status with the relevant hashtags will see their messages flash on the screen.  

Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral is the first to launch, with emerging talents such as Darren
Ashley, an electro-pop artiste who started composing music at age 12; Azmyl Yunor, a singer-
songwriter who started his music career as a busker in Perth; and Liyana Fizi, a founding
members of local indie-pop band Estrella, who plays acoustic tunes tinged with folk and bossa.

The W XYZ bar really is very trendy, and has such a young feel about it.

And what is a party without food.... rather delicious finger foods I have to say.  Wagyu fried rice, beef in a syringe, lovely chicken wings, mini burgers...
