R(O)A/W(R) @ Daikanyama, Changkat Bukit Bintang, KL

A photo heavy post on a new weekly acoustic sing along sessions by up and coming bands (Rock on!)....

Daikanyama is a fairly new addition (a few months old) in the bustling Changkat Bukit Bintang area (near Werner's):
Outside Daikanyama....

They have recently introduced a new weekly live band session called R(O)A/W(R) @ Daikanyama - showcasing new bands. That night, Goodbye 20th Century was playing a cool mix of their own songs and covers of popular 90's rock** songs:
(** Nice rock songs from Pearl Jam, The Police, Foo Fighters, etc. Not Mat Rock music! Haha....)
The band that night....

The interior is cool - modern but with pockets of soothing greenery:

We had fun sipping on yummy Choya and fusion cocktails that night while listening to the music:
Smile, gorgeous!....

Hot stuff Ciki chatting with Spicy Andre....

All in all, a great night....
It was really nice just hanging out after work and listening to a mix of songs that you can sing along to, to wash away the office blues.... Admittedly, the band that night was still a little rough around the edges, but I think that added to the laid-back charm of that night.

Oh, here's the thing though: If you think you've got talent to share with the world, they are always looking for new acts to showcase - call Mr. Barricuda of Daikanyama to arrange an audition. :)
(You can contact Bari @ 012-2235680)

So, it's: Cool new restaurant/ bar, interesting cocktails, reasonable prices (considering the area), decent bands (no cover charge!) BUT nothing much to complain except it was strangely empty that night (although I have heard that it can get quite packed)....

  4. This RAW thing looks seriously cool! I love Daikanyama on Fri nites but it's got a few more stars in my books for allowing struggling bands to have a go at performing!
