KUALA LUMPUR, 28 February 2023 –  Calling all party people, are you the victim of one too many dead nights out? Going to the same bar, ordering the same drink, and consuming it in the same way we always have been – whisky on the rocks or in a highball, anyone? 

For those looking for something different, Monkey Shoulder invites you to join us at Factory 19 PJ, from 17th March to 18 March, 3pm to 12am for an epic event that flips the script and offers new ways to experience whisky.

Staying true to its DNA of being a 100% malt whisky made for mixing, the free-spirited, fun-loving brand is bringing the city’s best DJs, bartenders and F&B brands together to deliver a weekend full of funky tunes, delicious cocktails and cheeky activities. 

Monkey Tunes

Expect a killer lineup that is going to bring the signature Monkey Shoulder groove. This includes, Blink, Ashley Lau, BATE, Bunga, JonnyVicious, Rimka, Roshan Menon, SAN, The Choobs and Ramsey Westwood, each bringing a mix of disco, funk, techno, house, EDM and plenty more. Patrons will be in for a treat of music and dancing experience, with the DJs spinning from 3pm to midnight. 

Fun and Play

Step outside the bar and into a world of fun at the Monkey Laundromat Cafe, where Monkey Shoulder Mimosas and bagels await those who love a little whisky with their brunch. Or challenge your friends to a game of mini golf to earn some refreshing slushy cocktails. Finally, hit the vinyl store where CoffeeBoy Club has mixed up some sick coffee whisky cocktails. 

Cool People Serving Delicious Things 

Adventure beyond whisky highballs with cocktails made by the talented Darwin Ng  (Winner of Monkey Shoulder’s 2022 Ultimate Bartender Championship) and Ho Boon Leong (Winner of Monkey Shoulder’s 2019 Ultimate Bartender Championship). In addition, look out for cult ice cream brand Licky Chan, popular burger chain MyBurgerLab, ever-evolving Coffeeboy Club and the He.nut bakery for some truly tasty treats. 

Brendon Khoo, Regional Brand Ambassador of Monkey Shoulder says “We’re excited to shake things up and bring this epic concept to life. At Monkey Shoulder we believe that   life is too short to settle for boring routines, and are always looking for ways to inject more fun into consumers’ lives. So come check out the intriguing weekend-long party and rewrite your night out with us.”
