Fever in Penang

Rumours have been flying around for months and tongues have been wagging endlessly, but now we can confirm and give you the real deal on what's going on. A brand new club is opening in Penang, and it's being helmed by our very own BadBoyBen. With every aspect of the club being kept under tight wraps all the way, we can now reveal that the club's name is FEVER, and is scheduled to open on the 31st of July, 2004. With most clubs in Penang having failed to live up to their hype and ludicrous claims of the "best" clubbing experience falling well short of the mark, Ben aims to create a cosy and intimate environment that will let clubbers let their hair down in style. As he says himself, "Living and working in Penang, I'm constantly disappointed with the entertainment available here. Penang deserves so much more than what's currently on offer. With Fever, we aim to give Penangites a club they can be proud of. It's not going to be an easy task, but I've got a fantastic team working with me to help realize this vision. My partners also understand that it's going to take an awful lot of work to make it happen, so I'm grateful to them for their support and faith in me." The music played at FEVER will be an exciting combination of R&B and house, with a few extra surprises thrown in for good measure. Since the musical direction will be steered by Ben himself, expect nothing less than the best. But what's a good tune without a good drink? Running the hell away from the whisky and coke mentality of most clubs in Malaysia, Ben is working closely with his bar team to come up with a tantalizing drinks menu that will turn Penang's drinking culture on it's head. Sounds too good to be true? Check it out for yourself on the 31st! VITAL STATISTICS: FEVER is a 8,000 sq.ft. fully restored heritage house that is situated smack in the middle of Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah, one of Penang's most picturesque roads in the downtown area of Georgetown. Comprising of a club and an outdoor cafe, FEVER also boasts an adjoining carpark that can easily accomodate at least 250 cars (and that's a conservative estimate) ... !!!
