JIS Malaysia – part of the international social lounge brand, is celebrating getting back into full swing with the announcement of a new and unique drinking experience for patrons.
With Malaysia transitioning to the endemic phase, JIS Malaysia is taking things to the next level to act as the focal point of Kuala Lumpur’s social renaissance. JIS serves as the perfect connection point for people looking to re-engage and build meaningful relationships after a prolonged period of forced isolation due to the pandemic.
“We are excited to be welcoming patrons back at full capacity with new and exciting experiences on offer. The pandemic took a toll in more ways than one, with the quarantine seriously impacting mental health amplifying stress and the sense of isolation. The nation and people are in recovery and to us an important part of that is mental and social recovery. At JIS, we want to help by bringing people back together again, to create genuine human connections in a safe and conducive environment,” said Cornelius Lu, Global Business Director at JIS Malaysia.
JIS is designed to facilitate socialising with an open concept that ensures all tables are visible at eye level. Smart tablets located at every table allow patrons to utilise the in-house smart system to match and connect with others in the lounge while staff ensures each person’s comfort and safety.
“People, whether it be a friend, spouse, or family member, are what make life more colourful. That is what JIS embodies through our name – Jinseini Irodoriwo Soeru, Japanese for ‘Adding Colours to Life’,” Cornelius continued.
Looking to bring even more colour and excitement, JIS introduced Malaysia’s first Experiential Drinking service. The experience emphasises custom concoctions that match patrons’ emotions and moods. Overseen by an award-winning mixologist, with more than a decade of experience, patrons can simply mention their current mood or emotion and receive a wholly unique cocktail to match.
“As we try to bring people out of their social slumps, we know people need to better recognise the varied emotions that they could be feeling. Our Experiential Drinking service looks to encourage people to share and deal with their emotions by making it a fun and open topic. With over 21 different selections to choose from, whether you are feeling happy, cranky, romantic, lonely, stressed or sentimental, we will have a drink that is expertly tailored to your mood,” Cornelius added.
Founded in 2011 in Sapporo, Japan, what started off as a series of dinner parties became such a hit that it expanded into a social lounge for people to meet and connect. The brand now has 10 outlets internationally with the outlet in Kuala Lumpur representing its first outlet in Southeast Asia.
Located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, a mere stone’s throw away from the Twin Towers, JIS Malaysia has already won plaudits clinching internationally recognised awards including the Golden Award in Novum Design Paris 2020 and Italy’s prestigious A’ Design Silver Award in the Interior Space and Exhibition Design Category, 2020 – 2021.
JIS Malaysia features over 300 food and drinks items, all prepared by experienced chefs and mixologists from all over the hospitality industry. Ladies enjoy a completely free of charge experience including drinks and food. Meanwhile, male patrons pay based on the time they have spent there, in addition to the food and drink they order.
