Friday night chill out at W XYZ bars with good music, drinks, snacks and friends is something that I look forward to. Relax, chic and urbane. Aloft Hotels in collaboration with MTV Asia recently introduce an online platform, www.mtvasia.com/aloftlive that will help promote local up-and-coming music talents who will perform at the “Live at Aloft Hotels” showcase at Aloft Hotels’ W XYZ bars across China, India, Malaysia and Thailand. Specifically, the collaboration will provide an enhanced Aloft Hotels guest experience for millennial travelers with live music access while on-the-go.


“Live at Aloft Hotels” enables millennial travelers to connect with like minded individuals in a fun loving music space created by Aloft Hotels, while staying in touch with local music tastes and hot new talents.

I was invited to the music celebration at Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral on 8 Nov, hosted by MTV VJ Hanli, the event started with a Music Preview Party to sample how guests can mix, mingle and meet at “Live at Aloft Hotels,” and featured The Light Fantastic, a local female duo. The next day was the “uncut” screening of the 2013 MTV EMA, held for the first time in Malaysia.
