TREC KL is an electrifying and cutting edge 7-acre entertainment territory located right in the heart of Kuala Lumpur that is made up out of five concept zones, including Zouk, Electric Boulevard and outdoor event spaces which are considered part of the first phase of the entire facility. Phase 2, which supposed to be opened in April, will introduce you to even more F&B outlets in a new zone called The Hive and a 5-storey carpark to the entertainment hub.
Designed by Malaysian architects Veritas, Electric Boulevard is personally being inspired by the ‘bright lights, big city’ atmosphere of night-time destinations that are gathered from the likes such as New York, London, Tokyo and Hong Kong. Electric Boulevard comprises of more than 35 shop houses which feature bars, bistros, live band lounges and clubs, all will be dramatically lit by multi-colored neon and LED lights.
In zone two however, The Hive is a 2-block bunch of double-storey Semi-D shop lots with 23 units in total with filling of casual and high-end restaurants, wine bars and lounges with an alfresco feel as each shop lot that features a dual-view through the front and the back. The upper level units’ features are rather mixed lifestyle concepts such as cafes, lounges and more.
Here there are approximately over four expansive double-storey bungalows that will later house fine-dining restaurants which are overlooking the grounds of the Royal Selangor Golf Course. It is self-assured to be a dining destination for gourmands from the KL society that eager in offering a cosmopolitan feel and front-row and scenic rooftop views.
Located right behind The Terraces and adjacent to the carpark, Alcove is designed to offer retailing opportunities especially for the creative, the expressive and those that are young at heart. Comprising 12 units of single-storey outlets with plenty of outdoor seating spaces provided along the walkway, it creates an outdoor sort of ambiance to appeal to the hipsters and a more casual audience. Here, independent brands can always sit alongside fashion outlets and wellness studios as well as thematic cafes, dessert bars, takeaway pop-up stores and retro coffee shops.
In August 2015, Zouk KL will be relocated to a new home in TREC. The multi-concept Zouk here is a self-contained entity which comprises around 11 venues including Zouk Café Bar, Beer Garden, Velvet Underground and Balcony Deck, which overlooks the Royal Selangor Golf Club. Zouk’s exclusive lounge and bar, Imperial, is actually the first in Malaysia that will soon to be inducted into The World’s Finest Clubs.
