The iconic Beach Club Cafe at the heartbeat of KL city nightlife along Jalan P. Ramlee has just been revitalized, refreshed and redefined. Promising to be bigger, better and way more happening, the familiar Beach Club Cafe will relocate to a sprawling new premise, just 100 metres down from its current location starting November 9 2013.

Invited by Carlsberg Malaysia to witness their new club location, aptly named the new Beach Club Cafe.. Mark 1.2, I was there rather early in anticipation of the activities lined up for the night. Strategically located just metres away from Petronas Twin Towers, the new Beach Club Cafe is hard to miss, with its two-tiered signature attap roof, way bigger than it's predecessor.

Arriving at the media sneak preview of the new Beach Club Cafe, we were literally hustled upon a bus on a rather short journey from the current Beach Club to the present and more vibrant one down the road. With the sight of the 20-feet high swaying coconut trees welcoming us, the ambiance did replicate an aura of being by the beach amongst the hustle and bustle of KL traffic.

Staying true to their core concept and hospitality, regulars to the previous Beach Club Cafe would feel right at home. With the authentic attap roof, Balinese architecture and decor, iconic Shark Aquarium which is 3 times bigger, the new Beach Club Cafe.. Mark 1.2 offers the same great entertaining local live bands and engaging DJs to their patrons.

Raising the bar higher, Beach Club Cafe..Mark 1.2 has many patios and terraces offering alfresco dining, bars, lounges and a VIP section that serve great variety of beers by Carlsberg Malaysia and a wide selection of champagne and signature cocktails.

At the preview party, guests witnessed the launch gambit which entailed the lighting of a tiki torch symbolising continuity and survival, the epitome of Beach Club Cafe. This was quickly followed by a rather nice buffet spread and a line-up of dance and live band performances.

I was more interested in the satay than anything else, as it was my favourite dish. Here, it was served freshly warmed up, with thick crunchy peanut sauce, just the way I like. Of course the other dishes were good as well, but nothing compares to a plate of satay meat doused in peanut sauce.
