To be open in stages, the 5 storey building, being custom built for Centro, includes Centro (the 1,500 capacity club) on B1 & L1, La Dolce Vita (a live music bar) on L2, Yoshi’s (a Japanese haute cuisine restaurant) on L3 and Cicada (a modern European bistro) on L4. There is also a private members bar on the roof called La Terazza. Centro the club as well as La Dolce Vita will open in Dec 2003 whilst the restaurants and roof top bar will open in early 2004.
A massive pre-opening party has already been scheduled on Saturday Dec 6th with The Ministry of Sound’s World Tour featuring Italian superstar DJ Mauro Picotto. Other international guests booked for Centro Jakarta in December includes Lisa Loud, Electric Tease, Tom Stephan and more. Centro Jakarta will feature a state of the art lighting and laser system custom built to specifications as well as a no holds barred sound system with the highly acclaimed EAW Avalon series speakers (also currently being used in Centro Singapore).
Michel Lu, founder and director of the Centro 360 Group, says:
“We are very excited about the realisation of our vision for Centro Jakarta. As a group focused on creating new and exciting entertainment concepts for the region, Jakarta was the logical next step for us. The potential is great in this vibrant and cosmopolitan city so we are already planning to launch more concepts here in the near future.” Mr Lu adds, “We are also looking into possible expansion into other Asian cities shortly”.Having recently been allocated the first 24 hour operating license in Singapore, Centro has been in the spot light for hosting a spate of successful all night parties including Dave Seaman, Barry Ashworth (Dub Pistols), Global Underground’s 24:7 with Lee Burridge, and the much hyped X-Treme Party with over 30 DJs playing in all three clubs Centro, Embargo and Lola for an unprecedented 24 hours. Lookout Asia, here comes Centro.
