The Club Silk Reunion Party, happening this Thursday 18th April is the talk of town. Because of course, it is the reunion of the mighty Club Silk.
There was a time when Club Silk ruled the Kampala night life. The club and bar, then located on 1st Street Industrial Area, was the epic definition of Kampala’s Night Life. You had not gone to club if it wasn’t club silk. It was not a party if it was not at Club Silk.
And this wasn’t by chance or coincidence. The management was a creative power house. They were always coming up with innovations that gave Ugandan party goers experiences they’d never forget. From popular theme nights like the Doctors and Nurses costume party, where people showed up in sexy costumes of nurses. To the Caribbean nights. To the epic New Year Street Jam. And the ever so memorable Unplugged Nights, among others.
The Club also brought into spotlight, and groomed most of the veteran DJ’s. During an interview with the New Vision newspaper, Veteran female DJ, Rachel Kun intimated that she knew she had become a successful DJ when she was promoted from playing start hours to the major night hour at Club Silk. DJ’s like Alberto, Phaizo, Shiru are only a snippet of many groomed from there.
Many people will confess that their liquor drinking virginities were broken from Club Silk. And many will attest to the fact that they had the craziest nights of their lives at Club Silk.
But like all good things, the bar was closed. A sister branch was opened up in Bugolobi. But there was always something incomplete for the people who cherished the segments in the bar like Silk Royale, Ocean and Oxygen.
It is for this reason that the management decided to throw a party for all Old girls and boys. Those who met their husbands and wives at Liquid Silk, have been given the chance to relive the old Club Silk Reunion party.
Veteran and popular Deejays like Bobby, Shirru, Deejay Hearts, Dj Faizo, Dj Faizo, Dj Alberto, Dj Emma, Dj Robbie will play for the night. They have also dropped the pricing as beers will be a paltry 5k, while a whole chicken and a beer bottle will be for just 30k. Yes, you heard that right. And that should make you understand why the #ClubSilkReunionParty has been trending since Sunday.
