Retro Nights at Tujo Kuala Lumpur

I really take my hat off to the people behind the Tujo, Souled Out, WIP, Hubba group, for they really have been pioneers of sorts, changing the night scene in KL.  I recall fondly the original Souled Out in that little Shoplex in Mt Kiara, a cosy chill hangout place.

Tujo, for the uninformed, is located in KLCC, at the ground level of the Ascott building, (where Seven Ate Nine used to be), and is a trendy bar, whose tagline is EAT DRINK PLAY.  Pool tables and dart boards juxtaposed against a long well stocked bar accentuates their tagline.

The event of the night was to launch the RETRO BLASTS, which introduces different retro themes for different days of the week.

EAT, DRINK, PLAY...Well, we actually drank first, played and ate last.

The spacious and bright cheery interior makes the place very welcoming, and not intimidating despite its location at the well heeled KLCC area.

As part of the Retro Blast Launch the decor was bits and bobs from yesteryear, and the gift pack comprised ..

the quintessential Haw Flakes, that pok pok candy that pops in your mouth, polo mints, rabbit candy, ...the only missing thing was that bubble thing you blow from the end of a tiny straw.  I used to love inhaling the stuff.

The Mojitos Bar...

The week begins with CHILL on Monday featuring special acoustic performances and drink promotions.

Tuesday's child is PLAY, and as the name suggests, its game night.  With a brand-new pool table and dart machines, patrons will have the opportunity to take on the Tujo House Champ in their game of choice. Anyone who defeats the House Champ in pool or darts will receive RM30 Tujo dining vouchers.  For the more sedate, and averse to physical activity, it's also BINGO night.  Best part is, there's a  Beer Buffet for an hour (RM70++) or two (RM110++) .

WINK Wednesdays is Ladies Night, featuring special cocktails and promotions specially for the ladies.  Resident DJ, Sanjay Paramount will be playing the best R&B tunes from the 90s and early 00s. AND THE CLINCHER, Ladies who post their best poses with the “house hot hunks” on WINK Wednesdays also stand to win a bottle of bubbly every week. GASP.  Talk about discrimination, why isn't there a Man's night where  Men get to pose with house hot chicks.

Thursday LIVE nights, Tujo turns it up to full retro blast with its resident LIVE band, “Albert, Vijay & Bada”.  One the liveliest cover bands who will belt out tunes from The Beatles to Queen, it would be great dance music.  Thursdays at Tujo will also feature performances by Malaysia's Queen of Soul Elvira Arul ...

....and supreme songstress Joy Victor  on alternate weeks. There is also a Wine Buffet on Thursday LIVE nights.

The DANCE party continues when Friday night rolls around with DJ Jinggo serving up the best party hits from our favourite eras.

Saturdays sound particularly interesting, as my friend celebrity chef Sapna Anand, queen of spice will be featuring the Goan cuisine with Thali sets starting from RM35.  I really need to check this out.

Here at Tujo, its always been about the overall experience. Our patrons are all lively, fun, and know how to have a great time. So, we simply wanted to be the venue that enables them to do so by offering different activities and entertainment each night of the week. There’s something for everyone at the Tujo ‘playground’, and we’re excited to be able to showcase that more vividly through our new concept,” explained Brian Choo, Executive Director of SOUL Society.

Some of the lively and fun patrons Brian Choo was referring to in his speech...
