Always wanted a chill yet awesome place where you can easily make new friends or network? Well, have no fear because…
The world’s first social lounge is here in Malaysia!
JIS Kuala Lumpur, the newest addition to the splendid KL nightlife scene is going to WOW you. We know, we’ve tried!
With complimentary food AND over 300 drinks for females, plus an amazing concept, this bar is one you will definitely bring your friends to!
Read on to know what we loved about this place.
It was founded in Sapporo, Japan in 2011 and the lounge is a true one-of-a-kind experience!
P.S.: If you think this is a place for sugarbabies or any dodgy stuff, then we need emphasise that it’s FALSE. We’ve tried it and it’s super proper and their service is just amazing. Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it!
Every day is ladies’ night
Ladies visiting the beautiful social lounge enjoy complimentary food and up to 300 choices of drinks, which includes alcoholic and non-alcoholic variants. And if you think it’s gonna be cheap food, you cannot be anymore wrong!
We were blown away by their food. The bar’s menu, which features Japanese and Malaysian delights, is prepared by a team that aims for gastronomic excellence.
Men pay a small rate and enjoy complimentary drinks and meals as low as RM2!
Ok, if you think RM6 for 10 minutes is expensive, then you are not doing the calculations right!
With the rate, guys also get to enjoy free flow of over 300 complimentary drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. Of course, some drinks are still chargeable but it’ll only be about RM2-RM10 for it! Same goes for food as well. Super affordable right?!
RM6 for every 10 minutes only means RM36 for an hour! Some cocktails cost way more than that but gentlemen visiting JIS only need to pay RM36 to enjoy over 300 cocktails and beverages.
Once you’re matched with another group of people, the rate will be RM15 per 10 minutes. But food and drinks are still complimentary or at a super low rate!
Rest assured as there are social distancing practices in place to ensure customer’s safety. Here are some measures taken:
- Regular sanitisation
- Temperature checks at the door
- Contact tracing
- 1 meter social distancing for every table
Their concept of the social lounge is to make people mingle more
What JIS Kuala Lumpur aims to do is to help people socialize and mingle so that you meet new friends and add colour to your life!
Don’t be intimidated because it’s not a one-on-one thing. They match your group of friends with other group of people too!
A social lounge may be a relatively new concept around the world, but it is already an established culture in Japan.
Although the bar features open-concept lounges, your comfort is always prioritised and if you think your group’s match aren’t getting along, moving on is perfectly acceptable. You can either opt to go back to your original seat, or you can be arranged to be seated with other people!
The in-lounge system also allows every patron an extra layer of security since it gives patrons the ability the request for a match change discreetly.
They have top-of-the-line service
Besides that, as soon as you’re seated, the attentive servers will surely make you feel extremely welcomed. We were seriously blown away by the welcoming servers who serve you in a semi-kneeling position so that they’re on eye-level with seated patrons. Seriously, no joke.
Once you arrive at JIS Bar, the servers will find out your socialising preferences for your visit before you’re seated. Since JIS Kuala Lumpur is an open-concept social lounge, the servers are attentive to the needs of each patron to ensure that they’re comfortable and safe while spending their night out!
