Laundry Bar @ The Curve – The Launch – April 17th

So last night…it was Monday night and I was at the opening of the Laundry Bar at The Curve in Mutiara Damansara, just next to Fitness first, it was a dual opening Italianies and a retro urban bar called “Laundry”.

Which is indeed an odd name, as many people walking past proclaimed “Why this Dobi so big one?

So basically it was loads of booze provided by Laundry and loads of food provided by Italianies? A sure winner indeed.

Got there around 9.30pm starving to death hoping there was some food, bumped into TV Smith and Midnite Lily, also the writer of Kaki Cucuk Langit a very good blog (Yeah go read it now, now now) and another fella who’s birthday is the same day as KinkyBlueFairy, muteaudio.

Also apparently I saw KinkyPugKevin and he saw me…but er well we didn’t talk.

It’s a nice looking place, I label it retro urban, unfaced cement walls, shiny aluminiumish things hanging around and a nice wooden/plush seating area at the back.

Laundry Bar

It was of course very packed, with the free beer and food, Malaysians all come out the woodwork!

The bar staff did a commendable job of keeping everyones thirst quenched.

The beer did just keep coming…and coming and coming!

Laundr Bar Beer

Unfortunately the first few rounds of food were provided with no cutlery…so we kind of had to make do..

Finger Food

And as you can see, it isn’t really your typical finger food.

This creamy cheesy tomatoey chicken thing was REALLY FREAKING GOOD, sinful, but good.

Chicken Thing

Yes food, more food and more food, there was some awesome meatball things in a creamy sauce with some tomatoe garnish and a big slice of mushroom in the middle, those were nice.

Here we have some prawn pasta, lasagna and the creamy cheesy chicken thing. All good apart from the Lasagna, which was too salty..a little slip on the seasoning there.

Laundry Food

The Tiramisu was really good, definately the best one I’ve had in Malaysia so far, it actually tasted like Tiramisu should and had the requisite alchohol in it 🙂

Then as we were about to burst…along came the most enourmous peice of strawberry cheescake, which was also fantastic.

Yeah they just kept bringing more food after that, with some kind of caesar salad with calamari on top.

I did appreciate the effort they put into the decor, gave the place a nice feel.


I’ve got purple shiny disco balls!

Shiny Disco Balls

There was a really cool live band playing some old skool retro ragga/reggae kind of tunes, nice music, great singers.

After that, to my absolute surprise the DJ busted open the set with some hardcore drum and bass, I was like ZOMG WTF LOLPLS I LOVE DnB.

After that came some Funky House and some UK represented 2 step Garage.

Laundry Bar

Laundry bar, it was teh fun.

I shall go again (especially because it’s like 5 minutes from my place and they should give me a lifetime of free booze for writing such nice things).

Laundry Bar does have a rarely updated blog here.

    ah.. i was wondering how come all of the sudden there’s a surge of visitor to my blog.

    no wonder laa… 🙂 thanks ST!

    Hahaha! I was sooooo tempted to say hi, but don’t you think it’s so weird to go up to someone and say i know you from blogging?

    I dunno. I always felt it is weird when people come up to me telling me they read me. Then you dunno how to react cos you suddenly know they know everything about you from your blog and you don’t even read them. Maybe i am just being anal.

    Laundry was actually quite uncomfortable for me. Besides the crowd and the heat. I didn’t feel like i could stay at any spot at all. Maybe on usual days, it would have been cool. Good spot for The Curve, as compared to say… Slippery Senorita?

    And the fact that it was Monday and i am thinking of deadlines all night long was not at all helpful… Bah.

    Next time i will shout out ShaolinTiger when i see you, which i never seen around before. Hehe.

    Ok stop babbling Kev.

    Free Italian food!

    Have to try to get invited to all these happenings in the future.

    Strange name for a eatery but I guess that makes it different.

  10. spiller April 18, 2006 at 5:17 pm #

  11. midnite lily April 18, 2006 at 7:18 pm #

    Kewl! I’d love to have a slive of that strawberry cheese cake too … but I’ve just eaten dinner and might also burst! 🙂

    ooO, the stuff looks great.

    by the way, no self respecting guy will call any food SINFUL except ciggy & alcohol.

  14. Paul Tan April 18, 2006 at 11:15 pm #

    KY: fattening food is sinful. just because you have a high metabolisme doesn’t mean you can go around setting standards of whether someone is self-respecting or not.
