T E L O K AY E R ARTS CLUB PLAYS: ECLECTIC This Arts Club is one for CBD professionals who appreciate straying from the norm. Music director and co-founder DJ Has describes the tunes as “eclectic and worldly”. Translation: soulful, funky and jazzy. The bar/restaurant has a clean modern vibe, and on Fridays after dinner, Has turns the space into a music den.
Music session “Kelab Malam” brings in international DJs and features local ones such as Ash, one of the pioneers of Singapore’s underground music scene and co-founder of drum and bass collective Guerilla. On the arts front right now is a group show by artists Megan Miao, Susie Wong and Zulkhairi Zulkiflee, which will be followed by multidisciplinary artist Dawn Ng’s showcase in January.
