Mixx is steadily becoming Malacca’s reigning club. Opened in December 2011, it has certainly started out with all the right stuff. Set on the second floor of Mahkota Parade, it has solidified its hip credibility by constantly importing DJs and live visuals from all over Asia.
The interior of Mixx club looks like a tricked-out industrial warehouse with neon lights that act as paint to walls and seem to take centre stage. This mall establishment is comprised of two sections: Paradox, where deejays spin electro and techno beats, and Arris, a garden café with a live band. Before Mixx club was opened, the owner used to operate another club, Pure Bar in Melaka Raya.
Drinks are slightly expensive but a fair price to pay for their resident mixologist’s imaginative offerings; expect to see a crowd of media types, trend setters and college students. There is plenty room for improvement and it has a long way to go before reaching the clean, edgy and polished look of clubs in KL (think Barsonic, Zouk KL), but it is as good a place as any to hang out at when you are in Malacca.
Mixx club has received an amount of bad press but if the crowds are any indication, it has all just been sour grapes. It gets so packed that there is a cover charge imposed on weekends and public holidays (cover charges include one drink).
