Weekly Live Jazz - The Rapture @ Rama V, KL

Photo heavy post on the new weekly jazz night at Rama V.... :)

If you're looking for a place with good food and good music, there's a new option in town - Rama V has just started a weekly jazz session on Fridays*** (10pm onwards) featuring soothing jazz classics sung by a young, up and coming local band called the Rapture.
(No cover charge too)

Here are some photos from their first night (last Friday):
Romantic setting inside:
Pretty light fixtures add to the ambience....

Beautiful garden outside:
Serenity by the pool....

Free beer! (because it was the launch night):
The charming beer hostess pours me a Chang....

Some yummy finger foods to quell the midnight munchies:
Mad rush for the delicious fish cakes, blue dumplings and prawn fritters....

The Rapture in full force:
Soothing Jazzy classics by a fairly young band....

Hiro in action:
Don't worry Hiro and Ywenna! (if you noticed...) - We aren't stalking you. Purely coincidence that we were at 2 of your gigs in a row (as Tokyo Blues and as The Rapture)....

One of our wonderful hosts, Danny Jee, serenades us:
"I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't minddddd...." - Encore please! :)....

Other out-takes from the night:
Naughty Qwazy Monkey butts in:
"I want to be in the photo too!"....

Hmmmm, who is Miss Hot Stuff gazing adoringly at?:

Always the gracious host, Andre drops by to make sure everything's going well:

What a sweetie....

*** NOTE:
Although they plan to have this jazz event every Friday night (10pm onwards, no cover), there may be changes due to being booked out for events (Rama V is getting to be very popular for that now because of the beautiful ambience and food). So to be safe, you are advised to:
- join their Facebook page so that they can update you promptly, and also
- please book ahead of time for dinner+jazz (as they do get quite packed on Fridays and Saturdays) - it would be a pity if you turned up and got turned away because they were completely full. :(

Overall: Beautiful restaurant, attentive service, delicious Thai food for a range of prices (up to you - you can dine here for <50 bucks, or >200 bucks per person, depending on what you order) and now with live music every week! :) BUT traffic in the KLCC/ Jalan Tun Razak area can be very bad sometimes.
