New York-style jazz club STUDIO is opening its doors for the very first time in December 2015 in Central, Hong Kong.
STUDIO has been styled for a discerning late-night crowd of aficionados of premium whisky, champagne, cocktails and all that jazz.The exclusive club is headlining live jazz and late-night DJs at a hidden-away 2,000 square foot venue in On Hing Building at 1 On Hing Terrace, neighbouring Lan Kwai Fong.
STUDIO’s ‘LOUNGE’, ‘LIVE’ and ‘LATE’ format will see each evening kick-off with a chilled-out ‘lounge’ vibe from 5pm to 9pm ideal for after-work drinks. The ‘LIVE’ sessions will start each evening at 9pm and will include sets by the resident jazz band, showcasing the best of funk, soul and Latin jazz. Each night will then crescendo into a ‘LATE’ set at 11:30pm, featuring local and international DJs spinning the very best of old and new hip hop and RnB on weeknights and funk, soulful and disco-infused House on Fridays and Saturdays.
The ideal venue for intimate gatherings and events, STUDIO will hold bespoke industry nights for professionals working in the property, law, finance and fashion sectors in Hong Kong during the ‘LOUNGE’ session on Wednesday evenings.
A nondescript door gives way to glamorous interior design featuring comfortable leather seating, warm walnut textures and copper tones inspired by sultry 1950s New York jazz lounges. Guests will be personally greeted and escorted to their tables, with the assurance of attentive personalised service and the knowledge that what happens in STUDIO, stays in STUDIO.
Highlighting the drinks menu is an extensive, carefully curated whisky selection from the world’s finest distilleries along with premium champagne’s including Krug. A mix of classic and creative cocktails will also be available.
Xuan Mu, STUDIO founder, says, “Our guests have seen everything Hong Kong has to offer. We are bringing them something totally new – a tucked away gem focused on live music and an intimate vibe.”
