IF YOU are looking for a new place to chill out in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, head on over to the newly revamped Life Centre in Jalan Sultan Ismail.
Life Centre is an all-in-one dining and entertainment venue that offers unique gastronomic delights and exciting events right smack in the middle of Kuala Lumpur’s Golden Triangle district.
The outlet recently had its grand opening after renovations were completed in August 2011.
Life Centre director James Ng said the outlet had come a long way from its humble beginnings 23 years ago when the land was nothing more than two rows of terrace houses.
“It was in 1988 that music business pioneer Ng Lian Chin began construction of the Life Centre. It started operations two years later,” Nq said during the media launch recently.
The seven-storey building houses a variety of dining establishments such as Ah Yat Abalone Seafood, Kingyo Japanese Restaurant, Doraku Sushi & Latin Cuisine, Dirty Nelly’s English Pub, Vespa Pizza, cafes and a convenience store.
“No matter if you’re a coffee connoisseur, a fan of Western or Eastern fare, we’ve got you covered,” Ng said.
Another highlight of the Life Centre is KL Live, a state-of-the-art entertainment hall that is known for hosting live concerts, DJ parties, dance competitions and corporate events.
Among the many performers who have performed at KL Live were Simple Plan, Train, Christina Perri, Ning Baizura, Jay Park and Greyson Chance.
“With our delightful and niche dining and entertainment offerings, we are positive that Life Centre will remain an iconic F&B and entertainment hub,” Ng said.
Also present during the opening was Life Centre founder Lian Chin and his wife; pop artiste Mizz Nina; and Noh Hujan, the lead singer of indie rock outfit Hujan.
